You probably know that Google Photos can back up photos from your Android phone and that you can access it from the web to view your library. Choose whether you want to backup your photos only on Wi-Fi, or Wi-Fi and the cellular network. You can choose “Back up all” if you want to backup your videos too. Remember, if you upload using your mobile network, you may use up data, or incur charges from your carrier.
- To back up photos and videos when your mobile data network is on, under "Cellular data back up," tap Photos or Videos.
- To back up videos, you must also turn on back up for photos.
- You can also back up your photos and videos when you're roaming. Under "When to back up," tap Roaming.
- Charges from your service provider may apply if you upload using your mobile network.
You can also set google photos to backup photos and videos when you're charging. To upload photos and videos only when your device is connected to an external power source, tap While charging only. This can help extend your device's battery life.
