Google has recently announced that they are currently working with Canon to deliver a feature that will allow users of the latest Canon cameras to save their snaps directly to Google Photos.
This certainly makes the backup process of photos captured using Canon cameras nowadays even easier. The reason is that all the images captured will be immediately stored in Google’s cloud service and can be downloaded from users’ cellphones and computers.
Even so, Canon says that the process still requires the help of smartphone users. So this system does not mean that the Canon camera directly sends photos to Google Photos, but from the camera to the smartphone and then to Google Photos.
It is known that this feature can be activated via the Canon app. If previously users could only send their photos to Flickr, Google Drive, YouTube, and Lightroom services, now they have added the Google Photos option, which certainly makes it easier for Canon camera users.
However, the problem with the presence of this feature is that users who want to use this feature must be a member of Google One, which is a subscription package from Google that offers 100GB of storage and is priced at $ 2 per month.
Also, the presence of support for the Google Photos service is said to assist Canon in overcoming problems such as the loss of user-captured photos sent to Adobe Lightroom because the Google Photos service is more stable and doesn’t present many problems.
