How to easily move iPhone photos to your Chromebook

Google Photos adds a chat feature to make image sharing faster

Up until now, the only way to share a single photo within the Google Photos app was to create a shared album with just... one image inside it. Users have pointed out how silly this seems, and so Google created "a simpler experience" by adding the ability to send private messages within the app. They are making that same play today within Google Photos. You can choose to do that or not; it doesn't impact moving photos from your iPhone to a Chromebook.

The recipient will need a Google account to receive the photos, however, because they'll need to sign-in to view the conversation.

There's even a Google Photos Progressive Web App for Chrome OS and, of course, you can install and use the Google Photos Android app on your Chromebook to see the photos from your iPhone as well.

You can also use this feature to start a group chat by selecting "New group", then adding recipients.

Google provides free cloud storage for your images up to 16MP and 1080p for video, so you don't have to use or pay for extra iCloud storage. But with now a billion some Google Photos users out there, it's likely that more of the people you want to share will have an account, rather than not. I share a lot of photos directly within Google Photos to family already, so this should help organize that better, allow everyone in these shares to chit chat a bit, etc.

Facebook on Tuesday released a new in-app feature that it says will allow users to transfer their photos and videos directly to other social media platforms or media hosting services, including Google Photos.

It's worth noting that Google Photos doesn't isn't trying to become an "all-in-one" app (like Instagram does).

Explains Google, the idea with the new direct sharing option is not to replace users' preferred messaging apps - a strategy that differs from Google's investments in apps like Hangouts and Allo in previous years.
