Chromebook users, now it's even easier to backup and share your photos. 

Today we've updated the Google+ Photos app for Chrome OS so that Auto Backup runs in the background.   You can just plug in an SD card and move on to other things, knowing that your photos and videos will be saved for you.

Now it’s even easier to save and share photos from your Chromebook.

With the Google+ Photos app you can back up photos and videos any time you connect a phone, camera, or storage card to your Chromebook.  With our newest update Auto Backup will continue in the background even when the app is closed, making it even easier to get photos from your camera out to friends and family.

Just plug an SD card into your Chromebook and your photos and videos will be automatically backed up to Google+ Photos (for your eyes only, of course).  And that’s it! You can move on to other things or even close the app, knowing that your memories will be saved for you.

A progress bar shows how many photos have been backed up and you can pause it at any time, like when you need to give a presentation or move to a slower connection.  You’ll get notified when the backup is complete and your photos and videos are ready to share.  

Get the updated Google+ Photos app for your Chromebook today.
