Google suspends its default backup feature for social media photos and videos

Google announced through its support page that the company has backup and sync to save Internet resources. 

The device used with the Google Account will no longer have a backup of photos and videos received from the social media applications including WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram after this decision.

According to Google, the Corona epidemic has led to an increase in the sharing of photos and videos. So the company is making this decision to save its internet resources.

Photos and videos received on various social media will no longer be backed up to Google Photos by default, but users can save their photos to Google Photos via manual backup. 

For this, a manual backup can be obtained by going to the folder settings of the relevant social media app and using the “Backup Now” option.
