The one thing it's been missing, however, is the ability to send your photos and videos to an Apple TV right from the app using AirPlay. That's been remedied, though, with a new update that's available to download right now from the App Store.

The Google Photos service and app came out in May 2015. Why it's taken this long to be able to get those photos and videos to our big screen is beyond us. Sharing vacation videos and photos with a group of buddies is a ton of fun with AirPlay, and now you don't have to leave the Google app to do so. If you've been waiting to go all-in with Google's system for your visual media, it just might be time to do so.
