I just got the s22+. When I go into my texts the icon for adding images is from the gallery. How do I change that so it's my Google photos? Since my previous photos are all on Google photos, not just the few I have taken from the gallery...

I don't believe you can change it, but I could be wrong. For all the recent galaxy phones, you just need to download the picture from Google photos, then upload via gallery.

Click on the plus sign instead of the image sign. The plus sign will give you the option to add an image and it'll rerout you to a list of pictures option like Google photos

Sorta close to this, I have a question. When I'm in fb market place or ebay or just other platforms you can think of, when I try to add a pic from my gallery, I only get a few options, not the entire gallery to choose from. How can I change this?
