Snails + algae problem

I have a nice pretty tank and unfortunately its near a window and I cant move it. Ive been getting lots of algae on the glass, brown green and recently what I suspect to be hair algae.

(its growing from the brown splotches of algae, and is really fine, and transparent or white.)

anyhow I acquired two snails and I think they are eating the algae but Im not sure.

Has anyone ever had a similar experience with snails and algae? Specifically I want to know if the snails are actually eating the algae.

Thankeeyouuuu.
