Due to the ubiquity of Android smartphones, Google Photos is one of the most extensively utilised photo and video backup services worldwide.By backing up their images and videos from their smartphones or tablets, users can access them on other signed-in devices.However, Google also gives users the option to share their photos and movies via public links with both other Google users and others who do not have a Google Account.

Here is a helpful guide to sharing your favourite photos and videos on Google Photos, from the simplest (link sharing) to the fastest (Nearby Share) methods on your smartphone or tablet, in time for the upcoming holidays.

How to share Google Photos with anyone on the internet
