I just got a new MacBook and am still learning the basics. I would like to have Google Photos on my MacBook and tried to download the app from the App Store. However, all I could find was a version for iOS. Will that work on my MacBook?

Hello Hans!

You don’t need an app on your computer for Google Photos – you just open a browser: Chrome or Safari, and go to photos.google.com,

If you are logged in to your Google account, you will see all your photos there.

Let me know if this works ok for you.

Dear Mrs. Geeks,

We had some correspondence recently regarding my older version of “Learning Google Photos”. I believe you mentioned that I could download a newer .pdf version for free but now I cannot find the link. Can you refresh my memory, please

Yes Hans,

It’s right here on our website on the Google Photos Tutorial Videos page.

Here’s the link straight to the book
