How do I set my Samsung Galaxy Alpha to automatically upload photos and videos to Google+?

When you add your Google+ account to your device you can set your device to automatically upload your photos and videos to Google+.

 

 

Setting up a Google+ account

 

If you don't already have a Google+ account you'll need to sign up for one here. Follow the instructions to register for Google+ and then proceed through the steps in the following sections.

 

 

Setting up the Google+ app

4. You will then be prompted to enable Auto-Backup. Select Over Wi-Fi or mobile network or Over Wi-Fi only as the preferred means to upload files.
