How do I get access to Google photos for things like customizing text chat rooms? It's only giving me the photos on my device.

@KJ W You would need to go into Google Photos, select the picture that you want to use, select Download to download it to your device. Now it should be available for you to use.

Seriously? That's a HUGE step backwards. That wasn't what I had to do on the A71 5G. The native Samsung gallery could access Google photos. I didn't have to do anything to set it up, but I it was automatically done.

@KJ W In the past, Google Photos was integrated with Gallery as the backup service. This has changed. Now Microsoft OneDrive is integrated with Gallery as the backup service.

I did some digging and compared settings with my old a715g that I'm just now replacing. There is a setting that is missing on the s24 ultra that allows for the integration. A lot of people aren't going to be very happy about this. Thank you for your time!
