Trying to attach photos from Google Photos.
In my Attachments field, I choose Add Attachment. In the next screen, I’m presented with a number of options, including Google Photos (at the bottom of the list). Choosing this, the next screen offers a blue Connect to Google Photos button. Clicking that brings me (eventually) to my Google accounts sign in window. I choose an account (I’m already signed in). I’m brought back to the same Google accounts sign in window. No further progress is possible. Similarly, if I try and use a URL from Google Photos, a blank document is put into the cell.

Is there an issue with integration to Google apps, or am I missing a critical step?

I have almost the same issue. Airtable appears to allow me to access Google Photos, but then just shows me an empty folder.

I had the same problem when I tried to acces to a google photo account (I was logged on this google account)

I tried the following procedure and it works (using Chrome or Edge)

1- Disconnect from your google account.
2- Connect to Google Photos from Airtable
3- When asked, connect to your google account
4- You get full access to your Google photos albums.

Enjoy!

Google…separate google drive from google photos…so now how are we gonna attach photos into airtable…

DOES ANYBODY KNOWS SOMETHING!!!???

Perhaps you could copy the photo’s sharable link and use the “Link (URL)” attachment option to attach it to an Airtable record.

I’ve just tested it and does not work, but you can copy the link to the image itself, from the browser contextual menu.

I dont even see the google photo logo :pensive:

It appears to no longer be an option, and only the devs know for sure why it’s been removed. I don’t recall an announcement about it, but then again I never used it, so maybe an announcement was made and I just overlooked it.
