my photos sync in Google Photos on my iPhone but not on my Mac. On the iPhone there is an option in settings to “back up and sync” but on my Mac there is no such option. What can I do to sync Google photos over all my devices ? ┬áThank you

For computers there is no “sync” there is just upload. To do that, you need the Google Photos desktop uploader installed.

Here’s the video for Mac:
