iOS or Safari has this setting for users to toggle On or Off. Ensure that this setting has been Disabled (toggled Off).

6. First Time Use

We've seen click action delay behavior for 1st time image upload UI dialog usages. The popup modal (dialog box) displays, then the image Albums comes up after a few seconds, but clicking anywhere does not do anything. 

If this happens, wait for a while, ensure strong & stable internet connections, for the image upload to load its assets. Then try to click on the Albums/image tabs to see any actions occurred.

7. Disable Ad Blocker/Anti Virus Extensions

Temporary disable any Ad Blocker or anti virus web browser extensions, to allow connections to Google servers to not to be blocked.
