Gmail Adds Share-From-Phone Photo Feature

Posted by at 5:02 pm on April 15, 2014

Google today added a feature to the desktop browser-based version of Gmail that simplifies the process of sharing photos stored on Android smartphones.

The new Insert Photo button is able to tap into images that have been automatically uploaded and/or backed up to Google+. The photos are listed in reverse chronological order, beginning with the most recent shot. Google believes this will make it even easier to share photos taken with smartphones.

In order for the feature to work, users have to use the automatic backup tool that’s part of Google+ Photos on their phone. The tool also makes it possible to share entire albums, and even crop or resize images before sending.

Once enabled, Gmail users on the web will be able to share their smartphone photos from their computer.
