You have all these awesome photos and videos on your phone, but what happens when you decide to buy a new phone or your on-device storage becomes too full to take any more? Since some phones these days don’t give you the option to back up to a microSD card, that leaves one solid option: back it all up to the cloud!
There are a few incredibly easy-to-use apps that let you store your photos and videos in the cloud.
How to back up your photos and videos to the cloud or your computer using Google Photos
Google Photos is one of the best ways to store, backup, and view your photos if you have a smartphone. It will also seamlessly upload them to your Google account storage. If you don’t have it for some crazy reason, get it. It’s a free download in the Google Play Store.
- Open the Google Photos app and tap on the menu icon (three lines) in the top left corner.
Tap on Settings.
