Google Photos users with Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo mobile phones have been fighting with a niggling problem given that permanently – their phones have actually been backing up their screenshots together with their electronic camera shots without any choice to switch it off. According to people from XDA Developers, who dug around the Android 12 beta, Google will lastly need that all devices that wish to run Android 12 must conserve the screengrabs in a various folder so they do not combine with the real photos.
According to XDA Developers, in the preliminary modification of the Compatibility Definition Document (CDD) of Android 12, there’s text stating makers need to save screenshots to Pictures > > Screenshots, instead of the DCIM folder, which will be booked for photos, taken with the video camera app.
Up previously, significant manufacturers pushed the screenshots into the DCIM subfolder(which represents Digital Camera Images). Because Google Photos’ backup service uploads every image in the DCIM photo, it would publish everything, consisting of screenshots.
People that do desire their screenshots supported can simply opt-in with selecting the new folder to be supported, naturally. The choice is still in the Settings of the Google Photos app, under Back up & & sync > Back up device folders, where one can pick other folders to be conserved in the cloud.
