Here, I am going to tell about how to Add a Location to Google Photos on Android

Next step, Tap Turn on Location History. This button is located under the “Add location to your photos” heading on the Assistant page. You will have to confirm your action on a new page. Tap the OK button. It’s in the lower-right corner of the “Location History” page. This will confirm you want to automatically add your current location to every photo you take, and save it on Google Photos.
Make sure your Android’s GPS service is turned on. The GPS service on your phone or tablet must be turned on when you’re taking a photo. Otherwise, there will be no location added to any of your images.
Take a photo. Open your camera and take a photo. Every photo will come out with your current location added to the metadata.
