How to share movies from Google Photos? Sharing all your weekend video files with friends can be difficult: Not everyone uses the same app, texting can be slow, and emails have attachment limits. Now, you can share funny moments using Google Photos by selecting the video, clicking "Share", and choosing whom you want to share with.
If you share with people who are registered with Google Photos, they will be notified. If you share with people by phone number, they will get a link to the video via text message. If you share with people via email, they will receive an email with a link from Google Photos. So, you can spend less time sharing videos and more time enjoying life's worthwhile moments.
How to Share Videos on Google Photos via Mobile Phone
Google Photos is one of the most used photo and video backup services on Android smartphones. Not only does the storage keep files safe for long periods, but it also helps keep your device storage space empty, ensuring it reaches its potential and isn't affected by any slowdowns.
The easiest way to share a video on any phone is to share a link to the video on Google Photos. This technique relies on Google Photos to sync your photos and videos with the cloud, which most people enable by default. After that, you need to do the following:
Step 1: Launch the Google Photos app on your phone.
Step 2: Find the video you want to share, then tap and hold it until the toolbar appears at the top of the screen.
Step 3: Click and hold on to a video in Google Photos to see the toolbar with the share button at the top of the screen.
Step 4: In the pop-up window, click "Create Link". After a few moments, you'll see a message that the link has been copied.
Step 5: Tap on the app where you want to share the link. Depending on the app, you should now see the link pasted into the message to ready to send, or you can choose a list of contacts to send it to.
Instead of sending the videos directly, this method sends your contacts a link to view a full-resolution version of the video of your choice online. Videos sent via Android Messages may suffer from reduced quality, and most email systems limit the maximum size of attachments, so the above method should be used when video quality is paramount.
