Facebook’s new tool will allow users to share their photos from Facebook to other services. Starting with Google Photos, Facebook will let users transfer photos and videos directly to other services.
“The photo transfer tool we’re starting to roll out today is based on code developed through our participation in the open-source Data Transfer Project”, says Steve Satterfield, Director of Privacy and Public Policy at Facebook.
Facebook users will be able to access the tool in Facebook settings, the same place where they can download their Facebook Information. Not only this, the photo and video transfer will be encrypted and users will be asked to enter their password before initiating the process.
Currently, the tool is being tested and after user feedback and refinement, it will be released worldwide.
For now, the tool is available for the users in Ireland and the worldwide release is planned for the first half of 2020. People in Ireland can access this tool here, others will just see this page:
