This new Google Photos ad shows how memories backed up in the Cloud can make for “Happier Holidays”


Google has released a number of ads for Google Photos this year, and they all have never failed at making us laugh. And this latest holiday-themed ad for Google Photos is no different.

This new ad for Google Photos shows you how your phone has been there for you through the thick and thin, giving you the ability to capture memories both happy and sad. But, many people get a new phone for Christmas. A new smartphone is always a great thing to get every year. After all, technology is changing so fast and different manufacturers are offering something new, such as Google Assistant with the Pixel. But, there’s one problem: your photos don’t transfer over. You have to start from scratch, and that’s completely disappointing.

Thankfully, that’s where Google Photos comes in. If you download the app and sign-up, Google Photos will back all of the photos and videos on your current device up into the Cloud. Since they’re all in the Cloud, it’s extremely easy to get them transferred over to your new phone. Simply download Google Photos, log in with your account, and ta-da! All of the memories you captured over the years are seamlessly right there.

That’s the gist of the ad, but the video itself is a bit more entertaining than that. Be sure to give it a watch (video above)! And seriously — go download Google Photos! It’ll save you some serious pain and frustration when you’re wanting to move all your old pictures and video to your new device.

    I really don’t understand why Google are always so cryptic about what Google photos does in their adverts.

      They are the same way with Google Home and Pixel, but they aren’t Apple yet in these departments so they really need to straight up say what their product does.
