Google Photos for iOS updated with AirPlay for streaming video or images to Apple TV

If you are coming from Android, or have a Gmail account, you are more than likely already familiar with Google Photos, as the search giant has been pushing it as the default app or service for managing images for a while now. It's even the default gallery app on many Android phones, and can sync all your pics and vids for safely storing them in the cloud if you let it. 

On iOS, however, users have Apple's image-management solutions and iCloud, so Google Photos is not on everyone's mind there. If you use it with an iPhone, however, or have just moved to iOS from Android, you'd be delighted to hear that Google updated its Photos app on Apple's venerable mobile OS to work with AirPlay. Yes, you can now stream photos and video to Apple TV via AirPlay, if you so desire, which is a welcome feat. 

The app is a hefty 165 MB download from the source link below, but it gives you copious amount of free space to store your media, and now with AirPlay streaming you can display them easily on the biggest screen in the house. Sweet.

Google Photos, a more efficient and secure cloud storage than iCloud could ever imagine...

I prefer iCloud for some features... and NAS for others - you wanna talk secure yet Google admits to snooping thru your shat...

I don't think Google ever admitted to snooping through your photos and if so I would like to see the link on that, if anything from what I read it scans through your photos and if you are wearing Nike shoes it helps Google Nows predictions and suggestions if that is what you are considering snooping through photos. Google photos never had major celebrity photo leaks from hackers.

https://www.theblot.com/google-admits-scanning-emails-even-dont-gmail-7718247 I bet if caught with Google Photos - they'd admit to that too - nothing is free!!! Google also admitted to snooping thru your data thru your own wifi - using the google maps cars - research that. Think about it, google doesn't give everything for free, not even Android - your data and your personal internet life pays for it... if you disagree, you're simply in denial... And the celebrity hack also involved google cloud. It's just nearly all celebrities use iPhones, not Android.. And no, the iCloud or Google servers were not breached - this was a social gathering of information tricked from owners themselves using a phishing scheme.. DONT ACT LIKE YOU DIDNT KNOW THAT!!!

“Our automated systems analyze your content (including e-mails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.” - I don't think this is really snooping through your stuff but that is really subjective. Of course Google gives nothing for free. As for the iCloud security breach: "The hackers were able to obtain the login credentials of the accounts, and pretend to be the user, in order to bypass this encryption." Nothing was really confirmed by Apple from what I know considering they denied liability for it so there is no way to for sure know what method was used in this case if was said holds true. It was phishing but still flawed security by Apple imo.

I hope you do realize that more celebrities got hacked through their Google accounts over iCloud accounts in "celebgate"

Shhhh you have an Android profile pic you are supposed to defend the guy who supports Google and the development of ANDROID! xD But please link Googles involvement in it, I tried to find Googles role in it and I can't find anything. (Maybe because I was searching it through Google and they don't want to give results of their own bad PR) Haha
