iCloud Photos app updated with new uploading capabilities

Apple updated its iCloud.com Photos app today, enabling the ability to upload photos. The feature, which developers have been testing on the iCloud beta site for the past two weeks, allows users to upload images to iCloud Photo Library.

Previously, those with iCloud Photo Library enabled in iOS 8 could view, download and delete their photos on iCloud.com, but there was no way to upload them. Now users can upload images—including those not taken with an iOS device.

Before the upload feature went live, the Photos app — which is still in beta — only allowed iCloud customers the ability to view their photos online, download them or delete them. With the new uploading tool, users can save JPGs to the cloud. However, the feature does not not support other photo or video formats, including .PNG, .AVI, .MOV and others. Once an image has been uploaded via the new tool, it will become instantly viewable on other iCloud devices.

Do you plan on using this new feature?
