You can soon transfer Facebook photos and videos to Google Photos

Facebook is releasing a new photo transfer tool in the first half of 2020.

Facebook is releasing a new tool that will enable users to transfer photos and videos from the social networking site directly to other services, starting with Google Photos.

Steve Satterfield, Director of Privacy and Public Policy shared in a news release that the photo transfer tool is based on code developed through the company's participation in the open-source Data Transfer Project. The new tool can be accessed in Facebook settings within Your Facebook Information and all data transfers are encrypted. In addition, users have to enter a password before initiating a transfer. 

The new photo transfer tool will first be available in Ireland from today, with worldwide availability planned for the first half of 2020. Facebook is currently testing the tool and will continue to refine it based on users' feedback as well as conversations with global stakeholders such as policymakers, regulators, academics and advocates.
