I can add text to a photo, but not in color besides white. I’ve watched your video, but you seem to say tap twice on the color button, but nothing happens exceot that it does add an underline to the letters in the color I tap. How do I change the color of my text? I am using an Android Samsun Galaxy S9 Plus.Embarassed

If I said tap twice, I mispoke. You only have to tap once. 

  • Edit a photo using Google Photos Android
  • Scroll over to More, then select Markup
  • Select the Tt for text and, right then, tap on the color you want
  • Now type your text
  • If it’s not the color you want, you can also tap a color at any time while you’re still typing the text
