So i am a long time iPhone user and just got my S10+ today. The learning curve is steep so please be gentle.
I have all my photos in Google Photos. I was hoping / is there a way that i can make Google Photos the default photos app? For example if i want to send a picture in a text message or whats app or email etc then i wish to see Google Photos and not Samsung Photos.
That's not helpful at all. Doing this every time is time-consuming. We want to share photos directly from another app exactly when we are using the app. I got an Android phone because I wanted to get away from the restrictive Apple eco-system only to now discover that I have to deal with Samsung instead.
The option for me to send from Google photos via text is there
Open text app
Tap the + bottom left
Next there are 3 dots, tap that, then tap image, you should then see google photos in that pop up
Regarding email, again open email app
Tap the orange pen, top right there is a paper clip, again the Google app is there.
I'm hoping I've read your post correctly
You can send a Google photo directly from the Samsung Messages app.
1) select the four square icon next to the camera icon
2) select photo
3) select Google photos
4) select once or always in the pop up to tell the app if you always want to share photos via text from Google photos
5) send pic
