Hi
I got an issue with google photos.So you see here If I capture a screenshot, google photos show that on the camera folder. it's really annoying because when I connected to the WiFi it's start to backup screenshots.

But you see here,I haven't turned on Backup device folders.

Also on Samsung Gallery I screenshots are showing on Screenshot folder.Thers's no issue with Samsung Gallery.

I'm using google photos since few years and Many devices.I have used Xiaomi,Huawei and etc phones.but I didn't got this issue on that devices.That's why I posted this issue on here.Also I should say that I moved to Samsung because of their UI,and still love it.
Any solutions please?

Hi Rachitha,

This is a weird glitch in Google Photos by the looks of it. I have not synced any photos with google photos for many years and one or 2 random photos i took a couple of days ago also has synced. I think its happening at random. Try taking new screenshots to see if they too sync with Google photos.

In my experience its been random syncing

Btw This problem has been around for a long time but I saw it today.if I take another screenshot, Surely it'll start to backup.I tried actually 🥲

Thats really sad. It happens to random pics of mine. Maybe u should uninstall google photos and then reinstall to see if it will make a difference

I tried these steps

Reinstall google photos
Clear cache and data
Re add my google account
Also I did factory reset 🥲 💔

Still same issue 🥲 💔

Maybe you'll have to permanently stop using Google Photos then

Actually I think there's no better app like google photos.I just looked for OneDrive,but it hasn't features like google photos.Also I can't keep my data on this device because I always lost my phones and forgot passwords.💔idk what to do 😿

You can always keep deleting photos u don't want. Thats ur last resort
