Facebook data can now be transferred to Google Photos

Now you can transfer your photos and videos from Facebook to Google’s most popular photo app.

The tool was initially introduced in Europe in December, but the company has now announced that it is available to every user.

This data portability feature allows users to transfer a copy of their photos directly from Facebook to Google’s photo storage service encrypted.

It is not necessary to download and upload this data manually to Google Photos.

Instead, Facebook users can transfer this data by clicking ‘Transfer A Copy of Your Photos and Videos in Your Facebook Information’ in the Settings menu.

This is the same menu that has long allowed users to download copies of various data related to the company’s services.

However, the process of transferring photos to Google Photos has been made much easier.

This feature, as noted above, was first introduced in December in the European country of Ireland and then in other European countries in early 2020.

It was made available to users in the United States and Canada in April and is now available to all Facebook users.

Currently, the feature is limited to Google Photos, but Facebook says support for other services will be introduced soon.

It is part of a data transfer project between Google, Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook, aimed at facilitating the transfer of information between these services.

This new open-source data transfer project will provide users with an easy and convenient option to transfer data between all these platforms.
