Most of the times we all wanted to transfer photos from Facebook to Google Photos. This can really take time because we might need to download the photos first and then only we can transfer it to the Google Photos. Today, Facebook is launching a tool which will allow users to transfer the uploaded Facebook photos to different services.
Currently, Facebook is rolling this feature with Google Photos first. Apart from photos, you can also transfer videos too using this tool. According to Facebook, this is not a new tool which they developed from scratch. This is the same tool which was launched back a decade ago which is used to download all your information from the site. In case you don’t know, Facebook allows you to download all your information from Facebook. The photo transfer tool is the extension of the previous tool.
When it comes to user privacy, Facebook are very strict about it. That’s the reason, you need to enter your Facebook password in order to transfer your whole information out of Facebook while keeping your data secure. Currently, Facebook is rolling the photo transfer feature to Facebook users in Ireland. It will roll out this feature to the rest of the world during the first half of 2020.
More services to be integrated soon
As for now, only Google Photos is being supported. We are not sure whether other cloud platforms are supported at the moment such as Apple’s iCloud and Flickr. We are assuming, Facebook will be collaborating with other platforms too by the end of 2020.
In a nutshell, this could be a great opportunity for most of us who always very seldom back up our photos from our smartphones. We will give it a try once this feature is available in Malaysia.
