Very soon you will be able to save the photos attached to your Gmail emails in a convenient and fast way in Google Photos. The Big G is rolling out a new feature that lets you do it with one click.
Google’s cloud services ecosystem is very broad and Google Photos is one of the most popular and used. One of the features that has allowed it to become the preferred option for millions of users to save their photos is that it offers free and unlimited storage, although this will change shortly. Within two weeks, the free accounts will only have 15 GB for their content, a space that they will have to share with Gmail and the files stored in Google Drive.
This important change in the conditions of use of free accounts, which will take place from June 1, is the reason why the media has been talking so much about Google Photos in recent weeks. To help you face this change, at ComputerHoy.com we have explained how to free up space in Google Drive to be able to use it in Photos and Gmail, and we have also given you tips to free up space in Gmail quickly.
But this limitation that will begin to apply in two weeks is not the only novelty that affects these services. It’s not all bad news, and Google continues to work on adding new features to streamline common user tasks.
Now the Big G has announced what are you going to implement a new feature that allows you to save photos attached to your emails in Google Photos with just one click. Very soon, in the thumbnails of your images a new icon will appear next to the Google Drive.
It is the one that you can see below in the screenshot, and as you can see it is the Google Photos logo with the + symbol. Pressing it will instantly save the image to your Photos profile.
In case you are seeing the preview of the image in Gmail, to save the file in Photos you will have to click on the icon with the three dots. As you can see in the image in the header of this news, a new option called Save in photos will appear very soon, which will store the file in your profile with a single click.
Google explains that this new feature will roll out gradually over the next 15 days, and it will benefit both Google Workspace, G Suite Basic and Business customers, as well as users of personal Google accounts.
