Google Photos Stops Backing Up Social Media Folders By Default

Google Photos has stopped backing up images and videos from folders created by social media and messaging apps like WhatsApp, Messages, and TikTok (via Android Police).

Previously, Google’s photo app would automatically upload all media saved to an iOS device, including any files saved in folders originating from social and messaging apps.

Google says it’s now turning off this aspect of its cloud photo backup service “to save internet resources” as people share more photos and videos amid the ongoing global health crisis.

Users can reverse this change and re-enable backup of photos and video from social media and messaging apps by following these instructions.

Other digital services including YouTube and Disney+ adopted similar measures to reduce bandwidth strain caused by the global health crisis several months ago.Tag: Google Photos
