Google+ Photos App Now Available To All Chromebook Users

The Google+ Photos app is now available available in the Chrome Web Store for all Chromebooks.

While the app was available to Pixel Chromebook users since June, everyone can use the features now including offline viewing of your pictures and photo backups from SD cards.

Google reports: “Keeping hundreds or thousands of photos backed up and organized can be a challenge. We wanted to make that process a little easier, so earlier this summer we released the Google+ Photos app for Chromebook Pixel. Today we’re making the app available in the Chrome Web Store for all Chromebooks, in 52 languages.”

Here’s what you need to do to start the process, according to Google:

1) When you plug an SD card into your Chromebook, the app will automatically get to work and back up your new photos to Google+ (for your eyes only, of course).

2) When you’re offline, you can still view your most recent photos.

3) Your top shots will be highlighted as you back them up, making it easier to organize and share your favorites.

4) Easily share individual photos, sets of photos, or an entire album right from the app. Simply select the images you want, then click ‘Share.’

5) Auto Enhance makes improvements to each photo you add, making your pictures look great. And Auto Awesome creates fun new versions of your photos like short animations and photobooth-style collages.
