Facebook has announced that it is launching a new tool that is designed to let you easily transfer all of your photos and videos to other platforms.
This new tool will let you transfer to other services like Google Photos easily, this is the only one supported at the moment, but other will be added in the future.
At Facebook, we believe that if you share data with one service, you should be able to move it to another. That’s the principle of data portability, which gives people control and choice while also encouraging innovation. Today, we’re releasing a tool that will enable Facebook users to transfer their Facebook photos and videos directly to other services, starting with Google Photos.
The social network has said that the tool is being tested and that they will continue to refine its features and more.
Facebook has so far launched this new transfer tool in Ireland, it is expected to be rolled out to more countries shortly.
