Google Photos is one app that has become a go to option for anyone and everyone who wants to keep their photos secure and lessen the strain on the storage of a device. Now, Canon users will get the option to directly store their images on Google Photos app. In an official blog post, Google announced the details. “We’ve worked with Canon so you can easily upload the moments captured on your Canon devices directly to Google Photos over Wi-Fi—no plugging in your camera or taking out your SD card.”
Google said that this could be done with the latest version of the Canon app, available on both Android and iOS. Users will need a compatible Canon camera (a list is available on the Canon site) and if they have one then they can “can choose to automatically transfer original quality photos to Google Photos, eliminating the hassle of using your computer or phone to back them up,” said Google in the blog post.
However, there’s a ‘catch’ in the offer as users will need a Google One membership to use this feature. “To help get started, Canon users will get one month of Google One free, providing access to up to 100 GB of cloud storage, as well as other member benefits, such as premium support from Google experts and family sharing,” Google said in the blog post.
After the trial period of one month is over, Canon users will have to subscribe to Google One membership plans. The Google One membership plans start at $2 per month for up to 100GB of data.
