Google Photos is by far the best way to back up your pictures and videos to the cloud, but it’s also becoming a great way to bring those memories to physical prints with expanded printing options. Starting today, Google Photos offers individual photo printing from Walmart and CVS alongside new canvas printing options.
We spotted Google’s same-day printing partnership in a recent APK Insight, but the functionality is going live way sooner than expected. Starting today, Google Photos users can get same-day printing of their favorite photos from 11,000 Walmart and/or CVS locations around the United States.
This new option gives customers a more flexible way to print their photos beyond Photo Books. 4×6 prints can be selected and ordered directly from the Google Photos application with prints being sent to nearby Walmart or CVS locations based on your choice. Pricing for these prints starts as low as just 25¢ for a single photo. For the time being, though, these are only available in a 4×6 size.
Starting today, you can order 4×6 photo prints directly from Google Photos and pick them up same day at CVS Pharmacy or Walmart, at over 11,000 locations with print centers across the U.S. Since your photos are automatically organized and searchable in Google Photos, you can order prints in just a few easy steps.
Update 11/26: Google has just announced that Photos is adding two new sizes for individual prints. In addition to 4×6, users can now purchase prints in 5×7 and 8×10. These prints are still US-only, but they’re now available in 5×7 and 8×10. Walmart and CVS both offer the service and everything is still same-day.
We’re adding more photo print sizes just in time for the holidays 🎉
In addition to 4×6, rolling out today you can order 5×7 and 8×10 photo prints right from Google Photos for same day pick up at Walmart or CVS Pharmacy. 🖼https://t.co/OFryUWEj3s

Alongside that option for individual prints, Google Photos is also adding the ability to get canvas prints of memories in your library. These prints start at $19.99 with sizes including 8×8, 12×14, and 16×20. These prints are shipped directly to your home following purchase, and Google will recommend which pictures are the most suitable for canvas printing in the app.
To brighten up any room with some of your favorite memories, like your summer vacation or your daughter’s Halloween costume last year — you can now also order canvas prints from Google Photos in the US, and they’ll be delivered straight to your home. We’ll also give you suggestions for the best photos to print on canvas. Canvas prints start at $19.99 and come in three different sizes, 8×8, 12×14, and 16×20, so they work for all types of spaces. You can put them on a shelf, prop them up at your desk, or hang them in your living room for everyone to see.
