Does anyone know if I can totally disable my Samsung gallery where when I take a picture of will not be saved in the gallery and instead will go to Google Photos? I want nothing to do with the Samsung gallery.

Thank you!

The gallery is baked right into the one ui, you cannot disable it or remove it. Just make Google photos your default photo app.

I don't think so. It can sync with Google photos and OneDrive.

This will disable the gallery's ability to access your files where your pictures are located.
The gallery is basically just a file explorer that only looks for photos and videos stored on your device.
