    GV app sharing sms

    How does one share a pic received in the gv app?

    Tapping the pic (appears to open within gv) reveals the share button, but sharing to another contact (via gv) fails.

    I can't find a way to do it.

    I CAN share it to send it in Hangouts! Lol!

    It's probably just another shortcoming of the GV app.

    You could:

    Long press the image - copy
    Start message within GV
    Paste copied image - Send

    I don't seem to get a copy option with a long press on a received picture in the Android GV app.

    You’re right.

    On d iPhone GV app - I get a copy option

    On d Android GV app - when I long press, there’s delete option and
    - if text msg - copy option
    - if image msg - save option

    I suppose, if u really want to resend an image via GV, just save it first.

    Something odd about copying and sending images via d GV app (iOS):

    If it’s an animated gif, when I
    - copy, paste, send - animation isn’t retained
    - save, select, send - animation retained

    So this is another example of a difference between the Android GV app and the iOS GV app. Lots of inconsistency!

    For being a google app, OS (operating system) integration in GV just SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!

    Another pet peeve, if i want to share a bunch of pics from google photos, it wants to send a link rather than actual pics. I suppose a different gallery app might work better and actually send the pics.

    Yeah, so just save the picture, on my phone it gets saved in an album called Voice in the gallery app, then share it from there.

    Sent from my SM-N960U1 using HoFo mobile app

    For one pic that's doable, but if you want to share 5, too much trouble.
