I’m a big fan of Google Photos, which is a Google service that lets you store photos and videos for free (up to 16MP and 1080p) and access them everywhere. And since I’m lazy, it’s no-tagging-just-search feature also appeals a great deal to me.

For all its goodness though, as an iPhone user, one thing I found lacking in Google Photos was its inability to beam my photos and videos to my Apple TV via AirPlay. Yes, I used “was” because this issue is now remedied with the latest Google Photos app update that’s now on the App Store.

I don’t know why Google took so long (Google Photos came out in mid 2015), but as they say, better late than never. I just need to think about what to do now with my Chromecast, which I’ve gotten just for this very function of getting Google Photos on my TV.
