Facebook users can now pass on their media to Google Photos


As we know, the social media giant Facebook launched its new tool that allows you to transfer your media files to Google Photos. This feature was launched last year in December. In February, it went live in the Asia Pacific and Latin America, accompanied by regions in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Although now, Facebook has made this tool globally available to all its Facebook users.

The photo transfer tool from Facebook is part of the open-source Data-Transfer Project, built back in 2018. Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Microsoft are the current contributors to this project. According to its official website, Data Transfer Project (DTP) is a collaboration of organizations committed to building a common framework with open-source code that can connect any two online service providers, enabling a seamless, direct, user-initiated portability of data between the two platforms.

So, to use this feature, all you have to do is go to your Facebook settings and check Your Facebook Information. There you will see the option Transfer a Copy of Your Photos or Videos. Now Facebook will ask you to verify your password to confirm your identity. Enter your password and select Google Photos as the destination, and choose Confirm Transfer option. The process will begin after authenticating with your Google account. After the process is done, Facebook will notify you with an email or an in-app notification.

5 easy steps to transfer

Currently, you can transfer your Facebook media files to only Google Photos. But, the company is planning to expand this feature with more partners soon.
