Google keeps coming up with new features for its product to improve the user experience. The company aims to make managing Gmail, Photos and its other products less complicated. To save time and make it more simple to save your Gmail photos to the Photos app the tech firm has added a new button to Gmail to allow users to directly save photos sent as attachments to Google Photos.
The New ‘Save to Photos’ button has been introduced to Gmail that will work as sync between the free email service and photo sharing and storage service provided by Google. Before this, the users were allowed to save any attachment directly to their Google Drive but now they will also be able to save photos sent as attachments directly to Google Photos.
“Now when you get a photo attachment in a Gmail message, you can save it directly to Google Photos with a new “Save to Photos” button,” the blog post said.
The new toggle is seen next to the existing “Add to Drive” button on the attachment and while previewing the image attachment. Currently, this is only available for JPEG images. With this new addition, there is no need to download photo attachments from Gmail messages to then manually back them up to Google Photos.
Also, there is no admin control for this feature and it will be available ON for an eligible photo, you can choose the “Save to Photos” button which is alongside a similar option to “Add to Drive.”
The new ‘Save to Photos’ button will be available to all Google Workspace customers and G Suite Basic and for Business customers. In addition to this, it will be available to users with personal Google Accounts.
According to the company, the ‘Save to Photos‘ feature is now being rolled out gradually via Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains. So those who are in the Rapid Release domain are among the first to see new features when they’re released to Google Workspace. This means the users typically can access new features immediately or soon after they’re launched to consumers. Whereas the latter one gets features at least 1 week after they’re released to Rapid Release domains. This gives you more time to prepare your organization for changes.
