Tip from the Gorilla: When you get to the Photos page, you may see a pop-up that prompts you to upload a video. If you see this, you can go ahead and click on the red “+” button to start uploading your video!

6. Confirm the video upload is completed!

Once the first loading screen is completed, you’ll be brought back to the main Photos page. Chances are you’ll see a gray square with a loading icon still spinning. That’s because Google is still finalizing your upload.
