Google first revealed a number of new capabilities for the Android Messages app back in March. The majority of those features have subsequently become available, but some Messages users are still unable to post videos to Google Photos.

This feature, which targets SMS users, uploads videos to Google Photos for link-based sharing rather than MMS, which is infamous for its poor quality. It produces a significantly improved viewing experience that is more similar to YouTube than anything else.

It is integrated into the media picker in Messages, and before starting the upload, Google detects how big the videos are. Throughout, you have the option to send through MMS. There is a shortcut for managing shared links in the Messages settings under Google Photos.

The Google Photos connection first surfaced for some users of the Messages test in February, as it did for me on a Pixel 6 Pro, but it then vanished. Although not all of the phones we checked today still had the feature, the beta channel had no effect on its availability.

Today, a Google representative informed us that the connection with Google Photos video upload in Messages is still being rolled out and that the company is striving to make it available to all customers as quickly as possible. The three-month deployment is very drawn out, particularly with the widespread availability of iMessage reactions, inbox filtering, auto-delete for one-time passwords (OTPs), nudges, and birthday reminders.

However, as of right now, no users can send pictures using Google Photos. That was initially made available to beta users before being pulled for everyone, but the corporation announced its arrival in March.
