New Facebook tool lets you export pictures and videos to Google Photos

Source Joe Maring  Android Central

Facebook started testing a tool on Monday that lets users move their images more easily to other online services, as it faces pressure from regulators to loosen its grip on data.

It was built as part of the open-source Data Transfer Project - a technology partnership between major social networking and digital companies created to make information hosted on one social media service available on other services. Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter were the original members of the project, and Apple joined the project later this year. It's available in Ireland now, with plans to roll it out worldwide in the first half of 2020.

USA and European regulators have been examining Facebook's control of personal data such as images as they look into whether the tech giant's dominance is stifling competition and limiting choice for consumers.

"We want to build practical portability solutions people can trust and use effectively", said Mr Sattterfield.

And if you can recall, we reported earlier that the SM-G770F is the model number for the rumored Galaxy s10 Lite smartphone. Nevertheless, a Reddit user recently claimed that his Samsung Galaxy Note 10 received a stable version of the Android 10.

You can find the new tool under Facebook settings within Your Facebook Information. All the data you transfer is encrypted and you'll have to enter your password before anything is moved, Facebook said. He also links to a Facebook white paper where the company ruminates on the conundrums in "data portability" - a paper that acknowledges photos are one of the easiest use cases: "It seems clear that people should be able to transfer data such as the photos they upload to a service".

As soon as this tool becomes live for the U.S., we'll let you know.

These include extra authentication steps to ensure only the owner of the account can transfer a file.

'We are excited to be putting this first tool out and look forward to working with even more experts and companies, especially startups and new platforms, as this project continues to expand'.
