If you want to transfer your photos and videos from iCloud to Google Photos, now you have it much easier. Apple has released a new tool that allows you to do it in a very simple way. We explain how it works.

Are you going to leap Android and want to transfer the images you have stored in iCloud? If yes, we're happy to let you know that Apple has launched a new tool to transfer photos from iPhone to Google Photos that make your life much easier.

Apple's new service works very easily, allowing you to transfer a copy of all the photos and videos you have associated with your Apple ID in a couple of clicks. Therefore, this tool will be useful whether you want to transfer your media files to another mobile or are simply interested in having a backup.

Before requesting iCloud photo transfer, review what your files occupy and make sure you have enough space in Google Photos. You can quickly check it in Settings > Apple ID > iCloud by clicking Manage Storage under the graph that indicates the total space you're busy.

After performing this check, to request the transfer of iCloud photos and videos follow the steps below:

  • Go to Apple's data and privacy page at this link and sign in with your Apple ID. You'll need to confirm two-factor access, so have another Apple device linked to your account handy.
  • Click on the Request the transfer of a glass of your details link in the Transfer a copy of your details section.
  • In the next window, you will see the number of photos and videos that you have associated with your account and the gigas they occupy. Select Google Photos from the drop-down, then check the box for what you want to transfer (photos, videos, or all). Tap Continue.

  • You'll see a notice that tells you the space you need to have free on Google Photos to carry out the transfer. Click the Continue button, and then sign in with your Google Account to start the transfer.
  • You'll receive a notification by email with the request, and Apple will notify you by email when the transfer is complete. The process can take between three and seven days.
Keep in mind that some data and formats may not be available in Google Photos, such as smart albums, Live Photos, or some RAW files.
