Google Photos is an excellent photo and video storage solution.

Its functionality extends beyond categorizing, storing, organizing, and managing thousands of your precious pictures and videos with amazing backup capabilities.

However, the most important thing is that Google Photos leaves more storage space on your smartphone due to its 15 GB of free storage. But sometimes, you might require downloading an album in order to access it offline.

It is not possible to download Google Photos albums via Android or iOS application and can only be done through the desktop site.

It’s still very easy to accomplish, and this article will guide you on how to download albums from Google Photos.

How to download albums from Google Photos

The steps to download albums are as follows:

  • Go to Google Photos in a web browser
  • Select the album you want to download
  • Press the ‘three-dot menu’ icon in the top right corner
  • Scroll and press the ‘download all’ button from the options

The album will be downloaded in a zip file format and you can later unzip it to see the images and videos.
