Google and Apple are beginning to turn the tech industry around with optimistic energy — these companies are no longer being autonomous with their products. You can now merge iCloud Photos with your Google photos automatically.
The services Apple launched today allow users to link their backed-up data compatible with both company’s products. A user is required to connect its iCloud details within Apple’s data privacy via its website.
Once logged on to iCloud, navigate through and select “Transfer a copy of your data,” — after this proceed to tick the boxes to select the preferred choice of videos or photos. Accordingly, you are also required to be login to access your Google account to finalize the process of exchanging files across both platforms.
The two-factor authentication linked with your Apple ID is also required to access the iPhone maker’s latest service. While Google also requires enough storage space on your Google photos account — according to the developers, insufficient space will disrupt a smooth file transfer.
As the file transfer proceeds, Google will give you a glimpse of your storage capacity and the size of the collection of contents. To avoid disrupted file transfer, Google designed its interface that allows users to free up space when it becomes insufficient.
PS: To have access to unlimited cloud storage space, Google Drive also has a premium subscription.
Whenever a transfer is successful, contents are labelled accordingly — for instance, files that consist of videos and albums are tagged a “copy of.” However, contents like shared albums cannot be transferred whereas only recent contents are liable to be transferred.
According to Apple the developer of this service, it usually takes up to three to seven days for a successful data transfer — the pend time is reserved for the iPhone maker to authenticate a transfer request.
Based on suggestions, maybe International regulators have finally got a hold on these tech companies with a domineering position to downplay government laws. While the government utilizes antitrust policies to probe tech companies.
