How do I restore photos from Android backup?

Answered by Cody Janus

To restore photos from an Android backup, you can follow these steps:

1. Firstly, open the Google Photos app on your Android phone or tablet. If you don’t have it installed, you can download it from the Google Play Store.

2. Next, sign in to your Google Account. If you haven’t already signed in, you’ll be prompted to do so.

3. Once you’re signed in, you’ll see your profile picture or initials at the top right corner of the app. Tap on it.

4. In the menu that appears, tap on “Photos settings.” This will take you to the settings page for Google Photos.

5. Scroll down until you see the “Backup” section. Tap on it to access the backup settings.

6. Within the backup settings, you’ll find an option called “Back up device folders.” Tap on it to proceed.

7. Here, you’ll see a list of folders on your device that can be backed up. These folders may include your camera folder, screenshots folder, and other media folders.

8. To restore your photos, make sure the toggle next to the folders containing the photos you want to restore is turned on. You can do this by tapping on the toggle switch next to each folder.

9. Once you’ve selected the folders you want to back up, you can exit the settings page. Google Photos will now automatically start backing up your selected folders, and any new photos in those folders will be uploaded to your Google account.

10. To access and view your backed-up photos, you can go to the Google Photos app and navigate through your photo library. You’ll find all your backed-up photos organized by date and location.

By following these steps, you should be able to restore photos from your Android backup using Google Photos. It’s a convenient way to ensure that your precious memories are safely stored in the cloud and easily accessible across devices.
