There are several ways to share photos using the Google Photos app. I recommend asking how your friend likes receiving them.

For most people, they want it in an email or a text:

  • Open the google photos app and select the photo(s) you want to share
  • tap the share icon56shareX2.jpgImage Enlarger
  • tap “Share To … apps and select your texting app or email app
  • this should open your texting or email app and the photo(s) will be there, just address and send.
    Here’s a video: 639.GP-Emailing photos with Google Photos app.

If you have a lot of photos, the best way to share is with a link. See this video: 621.GP-Share Album Link

Hope that helps.
