When I am writing an email and want to add a photo, it offers me access only to my photo file on iPad , not google photos. So how can I access google photos when I’d like to add a photo while composing an email. I know I can share a photo from google photos by sharing but this is when I’m already in the middle of a email and want to attach a photo.
You need to be using Google’s mail service – gmail. Apple mail doesn’t talk to google.
If you’re using Gmail, you can start a message, tap the paperclip to attach something, then tap photos. You will be seeing your Google Photos here.
If you need to use Apple mail, then your option is to download photos to your phone before creating the email.
- Go to Google Photos and find the photo you want to send
- Open the photo and swipe up
- tap the Download option
- If download doesn’t appear, it means the photo is already on the device
Hope that helps
