Google is extend its photo and canvas printing service to Europe and Canada.
Google offered printed photo books in the US since 2017a service that started rolling out in Europe the next year. And then in 2019 Google started offering photo prints and canvas prints in the US Starting today, these two additional print services are available to Google Photos users in 28 European countries – basically the entire European Union plus the UK – and Canada.
While there are third-party photo printing services that allow you to upload photos directly from online platforms like Google, baking a print service directly from Google Photos takes all the hassle out of it — and it also saves you from giving another company access to your Google account grant. Additionally, Google Photos has a built-in search function that allows users to find photos by location, time frame, people and pets, objects, and subject – this is especially useful for those who want to print very specific types of photos from potentially thousands of snaps, go back the years.
In Europe, single photo prints start at €0.15 each (excluding postage and taxes), with costs gradually increasing based on size. And in Canada, the price starts at CAD$0.39. Canvas prints start at £23.99 for an 8.8-inch print in the UK, but it’s not clear how much they cost in the eurozone – a direct conversion from GBP would put it around €28. Google hasn’t confirmed how much the service will cost in Canada.
It’s also worth noting that Google introduced one Subscription service for photo prints already in 2020, which uses AI to automatically print and mail a user’s top 10 photos of the month. This offering, which costs about $7 a month in the US, has yet to find its way to other markets.
