All Facebook users can now access a tool to port data to Google Photos
  • Facebook’s photo transfer tool is now available globally half a year on from an initial rollout in Europe, the company said today.
  • The data portability feature enables users of the social network to directly port a copy of their photos to Google’s eponymous photo storage service via encrypted transfer, rather than needing to download and manually upload photos themselves — thereby reducing the hassle involved with switching to a rival service.
  • Facebook users can find the option to “Transfer a copy of your photos and videos” under the Your Facebook Information settings menu.
