Google Photos now syncs with Xiaomi and OnePlus' Gallery app

We've seen a huge growth in the number of photos taken thanks to high megapixels of the best Android smartphones. Managing a rich photo library requires innovative solutions, such as the cloud storage space offered by Google Photos. Recent updates (via AndroidPolice) have led to deeper integration of Google Photos with Gallery apps Xiaomi e OnePlus, eliminating the need to choose between different features and multiple gallery apps.

Full integration of Google Photos into the Xiaomi and OnePlus Gallery apps

Photo management on mobile devices has evolved with the introduction of increasingly powerful photo sensors, pushing users towards cloud storage solutions like Google Photos. The latter not only offers convenience photo library backup but it is now enriched with direct integration with the Device Gallery apps OnePlus, OPPO, Realme e Xiaomi. This integration, available with the update to OxygenOS 14/ColorOS 14 based on Android 14 (for OnePlus and OPPO), allows you to view and manage Google Photos photos directly from the device's native Gallery app.

This innovation introduces the possibility of backing up and viewing photos saved on Google Photos without having to leave the phone's Gallery app. However, despite the advantages, there are some limitations, such as albums not syncing between the two platforms and the potential appearance of duplicates. Nonetheless, for the average user who prefers to view, edit and share photos directly from their smartphone, this integration represents a significant simplification of the photography workflow.

The ability to synchronize bidirectionally with Google Photos on Xiaomi, OnePlus and OPPO not only simplifies photo management but also integrates advanced editing features found in specific OEM Gallery apps, overcoming some of the limitations of Google Photos, such as the absence of the function to mirror images or the integration of the new features of AI-based editing. This collaboration between Google and smartphone manufacturers demonstrates a commitment to a more fluid and integrated user experience, where the choice of a gallery app no ​​longer involves functional sacrifices.
