The greater part of Google’s apps work admirably together — as long as you ignore the entirety of its different messaging customers. Gmail has permitted clients to save attachments to Google Drive for years, however with Photos and Drive not, at this point as entwined as they used to be, adding an option for Photos bodes well. Any pictures in Gmail can be uploaded directly to Google Photos starting today, however not without a few catches.
Moving a picture from Gmail to Google Photos follows the same steps that Drive-supported attachments have for years. When your account has access to the feature, you can float over any thumbnail included in a message to discover the Photos icon right close by the Drive button. On the off chance that you have a photo open in full-screen mode, the alternative to move the picture to Photos is found in the overflow menu.
Unfortunately, a couple of inconveniences keep this from being a home run. First, it’s hazy whether this will make a beeline for mobile any time soon. Despite the fact that we can’t say without a doubt, Google’s blog post just showcases Gmail’s desktop interface, so mobile clients may need to proceed with manually saving and uploading images from their inbox.
Second, just JPEG files are supported at launch, with no timetable for when PNG, GIF, or other file types may be qualified to be transferred.
Limits aside, it’s as yet ideal to see Google at last bringing two of its best applications somewhat closer. Photos integration with Gmail is coming to select clients starting today. Notwithstanding, it might require as long as 15 days for the feature to arrive at everybody — just in time for free unlimited storage to disappear from all of our accounts.
