- Futuristic

I am blown away by the features of this app. I LOVE that I can search my hundreds of thousands of pictures in any word or name. Google Photos can tell one baby from another, even correctly identify a baby as they grow up. In other words, I can type in my tween daughter’s name and Google Photos will pull up every picture of her, staring at birth. This app can tell one ANIMAL from another! I’ve labeled my Kitty as “Kitty” (which is her name). I can search “Kitty” and suddenly every picture of Kitty pops up! In fact, every time I take a picture of my precious little Pretty Kitty, it automatically gets filed in photo album “Pretty Kitty”. ALSO, within a picture, Google Photos can transcribe any words within the picture! This is EPIC. I can take a picture of someone’s business card and save it AS a Contact! I can take a picture of a recipe and automatically turn it into a text document. When creating a PowerPoint, I was able to search for things like “parking lot”, “grass”, “happy”, “Manchester”, etc etc. Just blows my mind. Though my phone is apple, I use Google Photos over Apple Photos, hands down. That said, the two apps work well together. Apple Photos allows me to edit photos in ways I cannot through Google. Google Photos allows me to create projects and utilize the amazing search function. Many times, I have edited photos in one a pp, then open/ work with the same photos in the other app. Have my Cake AND Eat it, too. 🥳

- Thankful for google photos!

This app is great! Im not good with keeping phones, i have 5 kids and we are unfortunately very rough one devices. We lose, break and hv the occasional freak accidents where my phones are concerned and sadly I’m not great with technology & where I’m always on the go and hv more importantly things on my mind even if I knew what I were doing with technology, I’m bad for leaving messages unfinished or unsent, I forget to post comments after typing them out and anything that has to be saved on a device after I get done with is a lost cause but depending on which settings you have set your Google photos app on and esp with IOS my photos & videos are automatically backed up. This app does everything for you! I love that It allows me to add so much info about my pictures so I know where & when they were taken and on any kind of special of occasions like 1 of my 5 babies birthdays which is a lot to keep up with on their own. I’m super Thankful for google photos for helping me keep special & irreplaceable photos/vids! I can access them from any device, anytime and they make it effortlessly easy to share via social media, messages & email (etc.) showing my friends and family, not only am I a proud mom of a sometimes insanely chaotic “mini baseball team” I am but also It makes me appear so well organized and put together meanwhile ;)

- Stores my photos as long as they are not 4K

It’s a bit confusing but what they are storing for me is pretty adequate for my needs. It would be nice to know I was storing the original quality but I don’t need another monthly bill besides Google Drive. It’s awesome the way they rotate some of the photos for you or give you that option. I wish they would do more in terms of the facial recognition so that you can correctly date some of your photographs were the dates were stripped in the uploading process which for me was a bit of a hellish experience because it crashed while uploading. I got past all that and everything I own is in my Google library I just don’t have them sorted properly. I’m hoping this will be done automatically in the future using the facial recognition technology otherwise I have to spend years fixing my library. Another suggestion would be if they would show you your duplicates which are close to exact duplicates so that you can delete them on your own. Sometimes it appears to be refusing duplicates but it’s hard to tell exactly what Google is doing behind the scenes occasionally I’ll see a duplicate missing other times I find odd photos in my trash. It would be nice to know exactly what’s happening with them folders. Those are all my suggestions and why I don’t have five stars I appreciate the free storage in the meantime hoping I won’t have to go with higher quality photos in the future.

- Love it-plain and simple.

Easy to use, does everything for you! Saves every pic you take and can even sync up with your other devices. You can even edit pics easily and save or archive a copy of the original and then share them to your contacts or social media/etc. directly from the app. This app also does “Remember this date..” and will show you a pic(s) from the current date just years earlier! Provides an unexpected, beautiful walk down memory lane. However, probably the greatest most sincerely personal and unique feature of Google Photos are the ‘Photo Stories’ and ‘Movies’ they compile for you out of your gallery of pictures! Sometimes they even include subject-matter-appropriate background music and include dates, times, places, and titles describing the theme of the slideshow or collage of photos which range anywhere from deeply personal and heartfelt renderings to silly, awesome, one-of-a-kind gifs you can save and use later! You can even easily purchase one -or all!- of these creations for a tangible hard copy if you want! There are literally so many more amazing features to this app that I can’t even name them all without writing a few more paragraphs lol! So, I hope this honest, personal opinion will serve as a good enough review for those of you who have yet to partake in the effortlessness that is Google Photos. 😘🤗✌🏽

- Storage Dream (maybe?!)...

I’m giving this 4 as I wait for “our newest update” to change it all up again,lol. Just when you get comfy with the “unlimited cloud storage” & you get all your stuff settled where you like it... AND THEN... “Hi, Just letting you know that there’s been a change in policy that takes effect next update so...” Then you’re scrambling to save your memories before digital annihilation occurs (or you’ve purchased additional space) so it gets 4*’s (& I teetered on 3, LoL) because even though it’s a little contradictory at times (offers up quotes of praise for saving people from extra expenses, keeping your device clear of clutter where bugs love to hide{!} & eliminating the need for many (many!) passwords... but then you get the daily “suggestion” to use “auto->XP”! for backup & whatnot which kinda has the opposite impact on your device..., it is a great App for pictures and the sharing of but... I dunno!?! I’m leery that an update won’t clear up room or something like that?! Things change on a regular basis with these Apps & where one’s great for storage it’s lacking in cool editing tools but it’s free so 🤷🏻‍♀️ (right?!?), LoL! I guess for now it’s fine but my review is as subject to change as the App is. Who knows, maybe a taste of one’s own medicine for a bit would put an end to the potential “fluxing of policy” where updates & the future of storage space &/or fun editing stuff) is concerned.

- Hands down best app for keeping & sharing life's most memorable moments

Hands down, The best app for safe-keeping & family sharing of life's most memorable moments. Super easy to navigate all of the features like saving the all of the important details, like location, time & date, and captions of photos to share with others. As a busy, single mom of 2, this app is a lifesaver for me. I can share my children's milestones with family & friends with such ease so no matter how near or far they are, they can watch my babies as they grow. I have a closet full of craft & scrap book supplies that I have picked up here and there but with juggling my career and my 2 little girls, I feel I never get the chance to actually sit down, go through the pictures & videos, take a stroll down memory lane and bring all of my amazing Pinterest crafts to life. Google Photos has simplified the overwhelming fear of feeling like there's so many important details that I won't remember while scrapbooking my 2 girls. It simplified the task of going through and sorting my pics & videos I've backed up over the years and it's helped me to be able to organize and group memorable moments from their birth so that I can start to put these special books of their most memorable moments together.

- No flexibility

Google photos is an all or nothing app. Either it backs up all your photos, every single one, or none at all. Sometimes I use a screen shot as a quick reference for a few minutes then delete it from my phone, but then it’s still in the google account. It’s extremely frustrating to go back delete them from google, especially because that too is difficult to do. There’s no easy way to scroll through and delete quickly. You either have to view them from a small thumbnail and hope you’re not deleting something important or take a long time looking at each one and having to click multiple times to delete 1 photo. I am trying to free up space on my phone so deleting photos is supposed to be the easy choice since I have them backed up to google. However it either gives me option to delete ALL of the photos off my phone or none at all. There are still plenty of pictures I would like to keep sorted in the folders I created on my phone for quick reference. I’ve heard the argument “well they’re still on your phone you just have to open google photos instead of your regular photos.” This is of no use if you are somewhere with spotty or no internet connection. The app is not user friendly, the interface is not clean, and the way it sorts photos is of no real use to me. There should be extensive settings where I can toggle on and off different combinations of options.

- Like a virus on my phone

I hate google photos. I was really excited to try it. I backed up all my photos from my phone to Google photos. Unfortunately I couldn’t scroll through my photos to see any of them. There’s apparently a glitch where when scrolling through photos the app forces you to scroll all the way back to the top so you can’t ever look through your photos. This continued even after I upgraded my phone and deleted and re installed the app. Nothing fixed it. Finally, I decided to take all my photos from google photos back on to my phone so I can upload them to iCloud instead. Of course when you try to do that often you don’t even get the option to even save photos to your device/phone! And when this happens you have to restart the app. And then when you finally do download images from google photos to your phone in the slowest way possible so the app doesn’t crash the photos are out of order and a complete disorganized mess of photos. Oh, and I’m now trying to delete photos from google photos and it is also deleting those photos from my iCloud even though I disabled syncing. So I’m STILL trying to figure out how to delete photos from google photos (and be done with google photos altogether). I’ve never even written a review for an app in my life but this app is terribly painful to use and even more painful to break up with. I regret ever using google photos. Hours of my life wasted trying to recover my own photos. Useless.

- Google Photos is the only way to go!

It’s the only way to go, if ya ask me! I know, ya ain’t asking, right? Okay, well that’s just fine, because I’m just-a-tellin! What I’m telling is that I love this App, because of so many things I won’t be able to list em all! Totally impossible! But I can share a few reasons why I love it so much! One is because of the option of assistant! When you choose this it gives you an option to save or dismiss the Apps, altered & filtered or maybe, brightened & cropped, or maybe, actually I can keep going but you get the Jist of what I’m sayin, right? You won’t believe the things assistant can do to your pics to make them look better or make them look like a work of art! You just won’t believe your eyes, or that you even took the pic in the first place once you see what all it can and will do! Lol woo-wee! I love this so much! Don’t waste your time with any other App out there claiming to do this or that! This one doesn’t have to claim anything, just open it up and Vola! Lol Art, Beauty, Imagination & I can keep going..... you already know! I’m going to stop here and let you see for yourself! The App speaks for itself! Plus I’ve spoken way to much as it is! Jeesh! Lol Y’all will have a blast and enjoy! I know y’all will! Lol Chow!

- Love

Love having all of my pictures in one places for the most part. I also love how smart it is and how the program can go through and recognize faces and group them together, if you name certain individuals. I’ve seen it work on pictures as young as baby photos to older pictures. Now that’s impressive! If it isn’t sure if this person “A” is the same as “B”, then it will ask, “Is ‘A’ the same person as ‘B’ or different? You choose and it moves on to the next picture. Very simple, yet effective. You can go through and label each person in each picture, even the blurring ones, so as to be sure that you remember everything. You can even edit and make changes to the picture once it has been added to Google Photos. Anytime you need the picture, all you have to do is to share it or save it on your device again to reuse. 💜❤️💞 It is truly magnificent! Oh, and the automatic lifelike pics that it makes for you are awesome. You can make little photo album with pictures that you choose or allow the app to do it for you, or just switch one or two pics out here and there. You can print from the app and add a frame. I could just go on and on. Love this app! 🥰

- Be careful what you upload and store!!

Although I love the unlimited storage and ease of album making, sharing, and management there are freaky unexplained things that happen to photos you know were in your collection but suddenly are no where to be found! I mean no where, not in the trash, archive, or backup places that you set any where. Case in point, I took a picture of the back and front of my business Credit card so that I could refer to my account numbers when I needed to while it was in the possession of an employee. I did so many times. When I looked for it today it had just vanished! I was not in the trash, archive, or back up places and I had not done anything with it since I last checked it. I don’t know if I was hacked, Google automatically removes such things, or maybe Google pulled for their own uses as per the Usage agreement we all sign without reading. That was not the first time something mysteriously disappeared from my photo collection yet is was the most vital. You will see that things tend to disappear for no reason and you will think you are going crazy and all Google will say is, “Check your archive, trash, and back up settings.” All these suggestions are no help when something totally disappears for no reason. BEWARE!!!

- Ok for folks that take social photos

First, most of my computers are Apple, and I take a lot of photos with my iPhone. This Google app/ system is ok for users that want to take snapshots to post on social media. As an Engineer and technical craftsman, I can’t discern if there is any way to use it for these purposes. My requirements are for technical photographs showing processes and assemblies mainly to send to publishers (and to publish on-line) illustrations for engineering uses. From what I can determine, is’s not too good for that, although I have never purchased a “For Dummies” book and learned the full capabilities of Google Photos. However, I vastly prefer it over the Apple Photo program that takes control of all content, holds them hostage, and deletes them if you don’t want to play by their rules and pay their fees. I actually purchased a Windows-10 laptop for my phone and camera downloads rather than struggle trying to convert and download my pictures to something a user completely “Apple” can use. I do store my social photos ( family, weddings, and vacations, etc.) on Google Photos, simply because they separate them by date and Google doesn’t mess with them further. And, you can download photos to a thumb drive and take them to a corner drugstore photo printer and gets prints for Granny, something impossible with anything Apple.

- Great app until.... $$$$$$

This app is amazing, I’ve lost important photos before when I’ve updated my phone a couple of years ago, then I found google photos that constantly keeps all your photos and videos in the cloud so you never have to worry about loosing them again! This app is a game changer compared to iCloud that has just a tiny amount of space, and you need to purchase more space to adding photos, and that was the best part about google photos, it was free. And as a student with student loans I don’t have a lot of extra money to spend it on extra cloud space, especially when the money could go towards food or actual space in the real world like my rent. But I’ve gotten the news that google will now be charging for more space, and I’m absolutely devastated I’m using this service as of now, ( while it’s still free), but I can’t guarantee that I’m going to keep using it once I need to purchase more space, like what’s making me purchase google photo space, when if I was gonna purchase more space I could buy Icloud space, and have it be way more convenient and without all the extra steps of uploading my photos then deleting them off my phone and opening another app on top of my Apple photos? It’s just not practical and I’m very sad that I’ll most likely have to move from google photos once I run out of space. Rip free google photos, you will be greatly missed.

- Almost perfect!

I am really enjoying the app better than the one that comes on my iPhone! But the thing I don’t like about it is the ease of editing photos! So usually I have to go to the other app & edit & then go back to this app & remove the original unedited version. Other than that I like it much better than the other app because it uses up much less space on my phone! And the picture quality is very good! I also really like how it puts photos in albums of individual people! That part is not always accurate but I can understand why! I think it’s remarkable how they can be as accurate as they are finding pictures of people from years and years ago and put it in the album for the correct person! this is quite a few months after what I wrote before! all above still true except the more photos I have them the more they’re not going into the right people‘s albums like my granddaughter has five different people or more all mixed up and hers a lot of them! so I found that there is a way to let them know that these people are in the wrong album I just will take time! but again I can see how that could happen because more pictures of Medi in the more faces there are! I still like it much better than other ones I have tried!

- Wish All Assistants Were This Good!

I have really enjoyed Google photos, especially for the assistant feature. Every now and then I’ll get a notification that the assistant has created a little movie or collage from pictures I took 2, 3, even 5 years ago. It’s great because it usually creates something that you’d like to have but you just never get around to making. Seeing old pictures of a trip with family and friends, the family pet doing something quirky, or being reminded of a special occasion can make your day. Candidly, I’m not a huge fan of the fact that Google has become this massive company with their hands in everything, but for utility apps like this there just aren’t many companies out there who have the time, money and imaginative software developers to create an app like this that actually makes it on to the App Store. For that reason I commend them. Now, if I could just figure out how to block every single move I make and web page I visit from them, I might just stop getting harassed by advertisements for things that I just searched for an hour ago on a completely different device connected to a completely different network!

- I like it, BUT...

I like Google Photos, but I wish their was an option under the "EDIT" tab, where I could add text or be able to write on the actual photo and be able to pick different colors, fonts, size of fonts and also underline, bold or put the text in italics. Also, my email is also linked to my son's phone, since I don't want to set him up with his own email account, until he gets a little bit older, that means that the Google Photo app is also linked to his phone, since he takes photos too. It would be nice to have an option to put a password protection on the albums that photos of each person is under. For example, if the album is labeled "ME", I wouldn't want him clicking on the tab and see photos of his mother that he shouldn't be looking at and scar him for life. Lol! Also, it would even come in handy when parents let their children play on their phone and they stumble upon photos that their parents didn't want them to see. Since my son also takes photos, one other idea that I had would be that anytime he takes photos and Google Photos downloads them, that the photos would be categorized by the device it was downloaded from, but you would still be able to organize the photos into albums later. Thank you!

- 10/10 Recommend!

i got this app as a way to store photos and make albums, and it has not let me down. i can finally clear up space on my phone for other things while having all my photos in an easily accessible app. it’s very user-friendly. i love how it has gave recognition and makes mini albums for each person! also, you can make your own albums and share them by simply copying a link. google photos is linked to your gmail so you can access pictures and videos anywhere you’re signed in! another benefit is with imessage. you can easily attach photos that are not on your device just by clicking the google photos icon and selecting your images. another amazing feature is that the app recognizes pictures with a lot of writing. when syncing your camera roll to google photos, the app takes the pictures with writing/typing (like a report for school, old notes, etc.) and gives you an option to clear them from your phone, as you probably don’t need them anymore and they’re classified as junk. google photos is an amazing app. it gives you options to create new albums, prints, movies, collages, and animations. this app is a must-have!

- Secure backup for free

I love using google photos, and if you have the background app refresh on, it automatically keeps all your photos on the cloud. If not, just open it every few days or so and it will back them up when it’s open. It has helpful tips and touchups, but asks before making any changes (I almost always prefer the touchups to the original!) I take photos of lists and receipts, things I tend to only need for a few hours, and this app has a very helpful function that asks if I still need these types of photos and will gather them up for me to pick any to remove or keep. It also has an optional facial recognition feature - not for everyone, but I love it! It is easy to search for people and even pets! It may not be my most frequently used app, but it might just be my favorite. Today it asked if I’d like to clear space on my phone (yes, of course) and told me I had over 5k photos that had been backed up and were older, then with the press of a button sent them to my deleted folder in the photos app and told me how to permanently remove them from there. I’m upgrading my phone in a few days so that was super helpful, now the transfer will be quicker!

- love it

this app is a LIFESAVER when it comes to phone storage. seriously. i chose to pay for original quality photos but even the free version has unlimited photos at a very good quality. the ONLY things i dislike: the actual photo grid is so uneven and eclectic, as opposed to Apple’s photo app which is always evenly spaced and easy to scroll through. i feel like on Google photos, they’re always enlarging some images bigger than others and the scrolling is not even and smooth. i begin to scroll and then suddenly it jumps down to two months ago. then i have to slooowly scroll back up and try and pinpoint the image i was looking for. it’s incredibly annoying. there’s also no option to control how many photos are displayed at once. i have thousands and thousands of photos, so often times on Apple’s photo app i’ll change my settings to allow four or five photos in one row at a time, which enables me to see more photos at once and find a specific image (needle in a haystack type deal) faster. on Google photos, you have the random enlarged images AND there’s only three in a row and no way to change it. it makes navigating my photos difficult. but for FREE?! can i really complain? i’m so grateful someone made this app!

- I love google photos

This app really is both a major convenience, and a lifesaver. Whether you’re trying to combat the possibility that your phone might break and you want to salvage all of your photos, or an easy place to store and organize ALL of your photos, or just a way to save local space on your device, Google Photos is the perfect service for the job. I've taken thousands of photos as well and have still not needed to purchase any of the (cheap) extra storage offered by Google. The personalized photo recommendations, and suggested stylized photos are very well done, as well as the automatic grouping of albums by location (which you can turn off if you’d like your location of photos to remain unknown) , and ability to easily order photo books and photo prints in app. I can attest to the photo books looking good as well, as I have ordered one in the past. Can’t speak to the quality of the prints though, although I’m sure they're of a similar degree of quality. All in all, I have no complaints about Google Photos, and multiple praises of it. The fact that my honest review reads as an advertisement probably says a lot lol. Great app.

- Excellent for photos, Videos are a STRUGGLE

I am upgrading my iPad and have a library of photos and videos on the iPad and synced with iCloud. Download the Google Photos app and give it permission to access your pictures and it takes over. Could not be easier. Be sure to manage your iCloud upload capabilities on your device first and decouple the device from iCloud. This is relevant, I believe, because it has taken a week to synch up ~300 videos from the iPad to Google Photos and in the meantime new pics (from all apple devises sharing the same Apple ID) get shared around to each other making the Google Photos install a bit less straightforward. This is the second Saturday I have been working on this and am now down to roughly 30 videos to get over to Google Photos. Almost done! Bugs I have encountered are minimal, but the count of pics/videos to transfer over is not a reliable number and the "upload in background" setting is not available to me so the app runs in the foreground. I had to upgrade storage size at Google -- for a fee -- because I wanted to keep original resolution and now I am curios about how Google Drive may be useful but don't know if Google Drive and Google Photos "play nice" with one another.

- Easy storage, fun features

Google Photos is so easy to use! There are so many settings that you can decide on, like whether or not you want photos to automatically be backed up or wait until you are on Wi-Fi. Then, you can have the app on your phone so that you can easily delete the pictures on your phone storage and always see the pictures in the Google Photos app. I personally have turned off photo back up on iPhone, and just use Google Photos. You can access Google Photos from a PC too. And while you’re taking pictures and videos while going to events, Google Photos will make creative designs in the background. So it will give you memories and reminders of what you were doing this day last year or three years ago. And then sometimes it’ll create a movie or animation from the pictures and videos that you’ve taken. It gives you the option to save those or share them if you’d like. And, if it sees that you are using your phone storage when it has already backed up those particular photos, it will make suggestions on groups of photos you can delete/archive from your phone’s memory. Good job Google, as usual 🙂

- Yes it rad! It’s better than face book for family photos and being able for all to use

It better than face book for family and the picture s are quality, I feel google is taking over the world but in a good way, I like the assistant and the effects I even like how they lay things out so I can explore and get better at my use of the systems. I use this and recommend it to everyone, yes I know it also tracking more and faster better with maps high pictures and how I use the google search, but I do admit google make so far everything better but ,invasive but so ar3 people This will make a market for phones cameras and other things we use may closed loop system for privacy, cloud for convenience, and we will see a market for towers and old laptops etc I think it’s cool, people need to learn and study it more so they understand what its purpose is and what it can do as in google ai photos computers tech, it amazing I just hope we do well with it and use it for all and communicate better and remember we need to collaborate with each other to make great photos like we have. It only invasive if the energy is negative . Thank you google 😊😉😎

- Finally! Google, helping to create peace of mind when I run out of storage for my photos!

This is the app I’ve been searching for! When I bought my iPhone 8 Plus, I purchased it in such a hurry that I forgot to tell the sales associate I wanted the highest storage iPhone. It was fine for the time being but, I needed to have a backup plan whenever I do happen to run low on storage space. I’ve been stuck with limited to no space available on my phone just a few months after purchasing it. I thought about possibly paying an online company like Box to backup my iPhone but trust is a big issue for me and I couldn’t get myself to take the next step in subscribing to some online account I barely knew. With Google Photos, I can now have peace of mind that my photos and videos will always be in one place safe and sound! Nothing bums me out more than to be at a concert and get a message pop-up during a video recording that I am running out of storage space. Now I don’t have to worry! I also really appreciate how Google Photos makes it easy to use and recommends albums and animations to save specific memories and moments! Best app ever! Totally worth the wait! :)

- such a helpful and amazing app

google photos is absolutely amazing. since i downloaded the app a few years back, it’s saved my life numerous times. i have very low storage on my phone and so I can’t have so many pictures in my apple photos app, but thanks to google photos, I can take as many pics as I want (and trust me I take a ton!) and then back them up to the app, and it will transport the uploaded pics to recently deleted. I don’t have to go through all my pics and see which ones were uploaded, google does it for me and it’s very efficient and easy. i definitely recommend getting this app if you take a lot of pics like me and have low storage. or even if you don’t have low storage, google photos stores your pics for you so if you don’t want all your pics in your phone’s photos app, you should definitely get this app. super helpful and really amazing. separates pics for you into location, and video, and you can make photo albums and collages. you can also sort people by face which is incredibly incredibly useful. all in all, this app is just a lifesaver and if you know me, you always hear me advertise for it.

- Can’t get rid of unneeded photos even though there’s a delete option, not organized, uses my storage

I admit it’s good for keeping photos backed up but I have another issue. There is a delete option for pictures and videos. I’m able to delete them, go into my trash, and delete forever but when I close the app and go back in, they’re all back. I’ve restarted my phone, made sure the app was updated, look up it up and couldn’t find anything. Pretty much everything I could do, I did. Point is, I’m in desperate need of storage and deleting thousands of really, unneeded photos is probably the best way to go. I don’t have many apps, just a lot of photos. My photos automatically back up so I don’t have a chance to go through them before they’re saved to my email. The app isn’t organized and nor are my photos. I go in to find photos that I may need and can’t find them. I’m sitting for hours before I find anything. I take lots of photos. I do a lot of photography and am one of those people who loves taking photos instead of living in the moment. I’m contemplating on just deleting the app and going on to use something else. Plus, it’s really buggy and slow. It’s constantly asking to “make space” and delete the pictures in my photo library. When I say no, it just keeps popping up every 5 to 10 minutes. Apple users, honestly just use photo stream. It’s a waste.

- Great app

Google photos is terrific and they have certainly outdone Apple in the Photos app department. Sad that Apple can’t even make a better photos app than Google for their own devices. Google Photos has Apple Photos beaten in so many ways: 1) Google Photos shows camera info and even lets you edit the time of a photo. 2) Google Photos allows you to add descriptions to Photos. 3) Google Photos actually organizes your photos chronologically. Apple says they do in the Photos tab, but they don’t. They organize first by location than chronologically. It’s ugly. 4) Google Photos gives you a speed scroll up and down. 5) Google Photos allows for multi line album names. 6) Google Photos offers free photo storage (full resolution for Pixel owners) and (high resolution to everyone else). 7) Google Photos offers much nicer filters. 8) Google Photos has much better smart organization for their people, places and things Albums. Google Photos is everything that Apple Photos isn’t. It still isn’t perfect, but at least it respects that people can think for themselves and offers many features that Apple Photos should, but doesn’t.

- Hate this stupid app

I’ve used google photos for 4 years now. Little did I know that this was a mistake! All of my photos have been backed up and saved to google photos over the years- and apparently this supposed storage app was actually a black hole. I am now out of storage space, and because of it, my phone practically doesn’t work anymore! It’s been the biggest mess! It’s keeping me from sending messages, receiving mail, taking photos, sending and receiving calls, and just generally using my phone! In an effort to fix this, I purchased a photo drive usb type thing to download all of my photos onto. Little did I realize that it only downloaded from a normal photos app, not google photos. So now I had my work cut out for me. I started off by trying to transfer all of my google photos pictures back to my normal photos app, and was very frustrated to find that the only way to do this was to go one at a time through every single photo. I gave up after about 200+ transfers. So I scoured the web searching for possible solutions. In the end I keep coming to the same conclusion. I either have to change all of my saved photos and videos to a lower resolution, or I have to pay money every month for more storage. I feel really stinking frustrated. I don’t know what to do. If anyone knows a solution I would really appreciate it, thanks!!!

- Best thing for my cloud storage

I can’t image I can live without Google Photos for I moved all my photo storage to it. If it’s gone so are my photos! Not only it is free with unlimited space, but also it is so user friendly. I love the way an album is created, pics can be dragged into it or added anytime, before or after it's made. I love it's powerful search function and face recognition which can track same person all the way to his life time. I love it's in-app-photo-scanner which has so many uses. I love it’s movie, animation, slides maker which give your ordinary pics a life instantly.I have so much fun playing around the app with my pics, video clips. It saves me so much money from not paying storage devices/services. It saves me so much time by using auto uploading and sync across devices. My photos are with me whenever I go. Uploading pics is super fast and reliable. Mostly it gives me a peace of mind knowing it’s here for safe storage needs which is priceless. I am so eternally grateful to have priceless gift among other things from Google. Thank you Google Photos for making the world better place for us people to remember!

- Best App/Program on the web!!!

I was always worried about eventually losing pictures and have no memories of my life when photography went all digital. However, Google Photos solved that problem and it’s really astounding what it does for you automatically. I have a DSLR camera, and I was also worried that I would have to always take pictures from the phone or transfer them to my laptop, but no not only does Google give you unlimited storage, it automatically stores all the photos nicely organized albums from any device you own. Next they are hard at work putting together albums or special effects etc., something that would take you hours to complete if you even knew how! Honestly, I could do without many programs and apps, but the two of my favorite apps, Google Photos and Google Play Music are making me want to consider going with all Google products,laptop,cell phone,chrome cast etc. I have an I phone and while Google Photos keeps up with those photos, the I phone only has photos from when I started using the phone. Google photos keeps them safe and secure! Unbelievable App!

- It was great up until the recent update.

I currently have an iPhone XR and I take pictures with it everyday. I use google photos to save all my photos about twice a week. It worked perfectly fine. I have thousandsssss of photos and videos online and Google Photos worked for me for over 1 year. It worked perfectly fine. Now my videos won’t upload. I’ve tried changing the setting on my camera to lower settings for storage. I thought that maybe the files were to large. But after countless to testing none of my videos have uploaded. I’ve even tried screen recordings and Live Photo’s. They don’t upload either. So then I thought it was my WiFi connection. It might be slow or something. So I tried it in my school campus’s WiFi which is really fast. I’ve tested it up to speed over 1 gb a sec. didn’t work. I’ve tried it with my LTE full bars unlimited thanks to Verizon and still nothing. I’ve tried my WiFi at home and disconnected every device from the WiFi and left my phone to upload for 2 hours. I then came back and nothing. My phone has 92 gb of video alone and a ton of photos. Idk what to do. This app WAS amazing and I promise you all it worked for me hundreds of times before but this update ruined it for me. I hope it’s a glitch or something and they fix it soon. I’m begging you guys google 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

- Features break over time + no support

I’ve used Google Photos since launch. It works fine at first but as the amount of metadata builds up, features start to break. First it was “sharing in progress; keep app open to finish” that would last for days at a time despite it appearing to complete immediately. Then one day it just stopped syncing edits, at all. Next it started failing to show new photos that had been downloaded locally and not yet uploaded. Around this time it also started uploading duplicates of things. At some point during all of this, assistant creations began failing to save. They would show up again every time I opened the app. Shortly after, it stopped showing new assistant suggestions and only the old “stuck” ones that I couldn’t clear or save. Somewhere along the way, it halved the number of photos it was tracking for backup from 3,000 to 1,500 without me deleting anything locally or freeing up space. Reinstalling the app fixes some but not all of these issues, and only for awhile. Buyer beware. You’ll get hooked by all the cool features and then it’ll start to fall over. Also, there is absolutely no support whatsoever, which is sad because I actually bought extra storage for the service. I’m a paying customer and there is literally no way to contact Google about any of my issues.

- Collages are easy; make them better

I'm preparing educational collages of many species of trees: full height, and closeups of leaves/needles, flowers/fruits or cones. Examples are larch, basswood, katsura. I choose the same 3 photos or 4 photos repeatedly in hopes of getting the specific arrangement I want. If there are 3 views, I want the full height of the tree to be the full height of the collage. Sometimes the app won't give me that. I wish I could see a set of diagrams. Suppose I select a diagram with 3 vacancies. I want you to label them first, second, third. The first photo I select goes in position #1, then #2, etc. If I want the biggest picture verticle on the left side, all I have to do is choose the right diagram, note the number in the tall box, and tap the tall tree when I get to that number. I think it's logical to name the biggest box #1. I'm not asking for ability to select the dimensions of the boxes; I like what you have now. I'm not asking for new diagrams; you already offer a full set with 2, 3, or 4 photos. If someone selects more than four photos, they should accept whatever arrangements the app currently offers. The permutations & combinations are too numerous.

- Can NOT go Back to Life Before Google Photos

Seriously guys, I would hate to think of going back to life without google photos! Google Photos is one of those apps that you had no idea you needed in your life, but once you do, you can never go back to how you was doing things before🤩🤩🤩 I love having one place that can have confidence in knowing my photos are easily accessible from anywhere. Plus, being able to share photos of my grandson with my daughter and vice versa in the moment is priceless. My husband and I are always in two different places, but we are always working on the same projects and Google Photos has been a huge help in us being able to share photos, ideas, etc. that keeps our projects moving forward. Lastly, although I could keep going, but since this is only a review, I am attempting to keep as brief as possible 😂 Back to lastly, the organization, tips, and ease of ordering is tremendously helpful! I am a huge Google Fan across the board, as many of the applications has just made everyday tasks so much simpler, so just giving a shout out and a big Thank You😀🙌👍

- Beyond brilliant

Google photos is probably the most useful app I have ever downloaded. Everything is easy and seamless. Being able to search people or animals by their faces is an amazing feature that I use often. I love that google photos creates albums, collages and movies on its own for me. Sharing photos is perfectly simple. I really like the archive feature, it’s relatively new. It allows you to put photos in a separate folder that you might not need such as screen shots or other photos you’d want to hide from your regular photos. Another feature I’ve been appreciative of lately is ‘rediscover this day,’ it allows you to see photos you took in this day during previous years. I love this app. I tell all my friends and family to download it. Nothing else even comes close to what it can do. If anything I’d make a couple suggestions although I’m satisfied with the app without them. 1 - make a secret archive folder that can only be accessed with a password. 2 - allow users to create a custom collage (put the photos in the place they want rather than the app organizing them for you)

- Amazing

I take a lot of pictures with my phone and with my SLR. I have a large extended family and lots of grandkids. I have 200,000 ++ digital photos dating back to my first digital camera in 2001. I have digital scans of old 35mm slides. All this has been sitting on my hard drive doing no one any good. I have uploaded each folder of photos on my hard drive onto GF. Each folder on my PC has become an album on GF. This resulted in the creation of hundreds of albums in GF. Once in GF, I then share each album with the appropriate people for that particular album. Google’s artificial intelligence (AI) is scary good. The facial recognition is awesome. It is able to recognize my brother at age 75 all the way down to age 8...automatically! Below age 8 GF needs my help sometimes. So finding all the photos of uncle Harry is a snap. Now all my kids have all the photos related to them on all their devices. All searchable by person, date, location, setting (beach, mountains, etc). They love it. I love it. All unlimited and free. I still keep my SLR RAW files on my PC, but I have now made all my photos accessible to family and friends. Simply amazing.

- I love it BUT ...

I absolutely love Google Photos! I haven’t had a problem with anything until recently. I’ve never used another cloud service except Google that I knew about until I discovered one day after my phone was stolen that was not the case. I got a newer Samsung phone a couple years ago and when setting the phone up I logged into everything from google, Samsung, Microsoft.. whatever.. anyways every now and then I’d get on my google account and back up whatever data created since the last time and I’m almost positive that meant contacts and photos as well. Well after my phone was stolen and I tried accessing some of the things I was looking for like photos and contacts and to my surprise NOTHING was there from the Samsung phone! Honestly, this is a little bit of my fault as well for a lack of knowledge.. i thankfully found the photos I was SOOO happy to have found in the one drive app. Not sure how my photos got sent to that cloud instead of google but it’s definitely something I’m aware of now and will pay attention to. Other than that little scare .. I’m grateful for this app.

- Organizes your visual life impeccably with little to no work on your part!

Google photos does a very good job of backing up unlimited amounts of photos and videos for free. It doesn’t end there! Google photos does a great job of recognizing faces places and objects on demand. Another great feature about this app is the fact that one can go on a trip and within a day or two of returning, google photos has prepared a photo album that you can edit, caption, and add to based on the geo tag of each photo. As if all of that wasn’t enough, google photos allows you to edit your photos and videos within the app, save them, and then share a single photo/video or groups of them with friends or family via a web link. This gives you total control of what others see. The fact that google photos is secured with your Gmail address and password, means that you can login to view your photos practically anywhere you have an Internet connection. Best photo and video software I have ever used...in fact, everyone else is rushing to copy features already perfected here. Try it. You'll like it. Promise.

- Great but VERY SLOW

I cannot think of a more useful app like this day to day. I have a 64GB iphone and my friends always flex on me because they have 256 GB or whatever. Now i flex on them because i have UNLIMITED STORAGE!!! I can truly say this app is a miracle worker, because otherwise, I would have to upload my photos to icloud where my ENTIRE family could see, but now there is this. The app is great but it is VERY slow. I have about 3000 photos to back up, and I expected it would take maybe 1-2 days. I even tried to not take anymore photos until it backed up fully so I don’t overload it or anything. Boy was I wrong, it has been 2 WEEKS!! AND I STILL HAVE 300 photos to back up. For some reason, the number keeps glitching, even though I’m not taking photos, the number sometimes keeps going up. One day I’m down to only a 150 photos to back up, a minute later, I have 291 photos to back up. I understand it may just me my slow phone, but this should be compatible with all users. I decided to upgrade just for this reason, and if it doesn’t work then, I will give it a 3 star rating, if it works, I will change my rating to a 5! Thanks Google!!!

- Ehhhhh......read before you download

Okay, so original when I downloaded this I was really excited because I have a LOT of photos and thought this would be good. My family said it’s a really good app and I should definitely download it. It’s started of good and then....ehhhh... it just got really bad. So it backed up everything which was good, but it literally took all of my storage. I was not able to receive emails, write emails, take photos or download apps or make documents in google drive. That was bad... I couldn’t do anything because once you have the app, you can’t really get rid of it. You delete it, it deletes ALL of your photos. Eventually, I figured out how to kinda fix it, but I could no longer go into the app. I have no idea if this is just me because the rest of my family had no trouble with this but I had much more photos then them. Idk, take what you want from this but other than that its a pretty good app. You can share albums with friends and family and it does back it up. Good and bad, but take my experience and download with percussion. Have a good rest of your day!😀👍

- I love time is saves me in organizing my photos.

I have taken photographs all my life and have thousands of pictures. People often ask me for pictures of loved ones that are no longer with us or for special occasions like my Daughters sweet 16 birthday. On google I have all my cellphone pictures and special events. For birthdays I like to run a slide show of that person life. All I have to do is select that person and I have an album of every picture I have taken of them. I often need to search for an event but don’t remember what date it occurred. I do a quick search on google for people or places to find that event. I always have some cellphone pictures of the event where I can inspect that picture and get the information on when it was taken. I then search my computers hard drive for that file date to locate all my photos taken on that day. Future requests: My 35mm pictures are too many and large file sizes to upload all of them so I would love to be able to run googles face recognition on my computers hard drive and keep a low resolution copy of all my pictures in the cloud.

- Easy to use, a life saver!

I am a PC/Windows user, with an iPhone, which means if I don’t use iCloud, and I backup my Apple/iTunes information onto a new iPhone, years of photos are automatically added to my new phone and can not be deleted. It’s driving me insane and I came up to 10k in photos! As a result I couldn’t use my phone at all or update. I wasn’t even able to delete my photos or back it up. Thanks to the Google Photo app, I was able to backup and delete 7k of photos off my iPhone. It’s been such a seamless experience. Every time I open Google Photo app, it backs up all the photos/most recent photos onto the app. There are organization features like archiving but the app essentially does all the hard work for you. It’s really amazing, like magic! In the end I was able to clear up phone storage space and update my phone. I can even access these photos via my gmail when I open Google Photos on the desktop. It makes creating digital photo collages an easy task when I have access to all my photos from mobile to desktop. I love this app!!!

- Solid photo app

I’ve been using google photos for over two years now and it has been an innovative, reliable way to backup photos and videos. The search feature is magic. There’s no other way to describe it. I searched for “headset” and a picture from five years ago popped up with me in the front seat of a small airplane with a headset on...it also somehow correctly recognizes people from birth to adulthood. I don’t know about you, but I look nothing like I did when I was two years old. There are a couple improvements I would suggest though. First, editing photos could be significantly more robust. It currently has all the basic editing features you would find in most default phone photo apps. Second, a more clear, innovative organization method would be very handy. As it stands, I have tens (maybe hundreds) of thousands of photos all arrayed in a vertical flow with the months/years denoted along the side. Perhaps the option to automatically organize/rearrange into (gasp) folders by year, event type (wedding, vacation, etc) or person and other categories. Just a thought.

- Infinite room for pics

Everyone knows when you back your pictures up in iCloud it uses some of you allotted 5gigs in the process. I use Google Pics and the app is like magic. It just vacuums up my pictures and videos, saves them, all completely behind the scenes automatically. The one hook is you must store them at a SLIGHTLY less resolution for the back ups to not take space off your google drive cloud server. Personally I can not tell any difference and for my purpose Google Pics does everything I need to keep all my pictures safe. The App is free and I've been backing up my pictures does years with no problem. A one second down load and whatever picture you want will appear in your camera roll on your device. If you have lots of pictures that need backing up you can use up all your iCloud room and have to buy more space OR back them up using google's server and have all the space you need. You can back up in original form also it just counts against the 15 gigabytes of space Google gives you with your account.

- Great Over 50 App

Generation X and Baby Boomers have some say in this World of Technology! Typically we purchase the iPhone with less memory space available because let’s face it, “we’re not that techie”. What we fail to realize we’re going through that stage of life with the plastic pull-out wallet photo album our grandmothers use to whip out on everyone, strangers on public transit included. The only difference, our whip-out photo album is on our cell phones. Suddenly you realize with all those photos and videos of the family, and your memory capacity notifications have you wishing you had bought the phone with more memory! THANK YOU GOOGLE PHOTO APP! You have saved the day! I can store my plastic photo flip-out album now on my Google Photos and have memory to spare! The navigation on the app is so simple for all us “not so techie” 50+ people. The document archive is a great feature too. No more searching through photos for those paid bill screenshots. I also love the photo editing suggestions, considering I’m not a professional photographer. This App is a must for all 50+!

- Issue with google photos

Hello I love google photos but I’m a little frustrated at the moment, I am suggesting an update with google photos and I am having an issue. When I go to into trash tab in google photos app there’s pictures and videos I never put in trash it’s just there automatically. I see ones that I actually did mean to put in trash but there’s ones that I never put in trash and when I try to restore all it goes back into trash ones that I never meant to put in trash. Also when I try to delete all in trash it goes back in there. This is frustrating because I know photos and videos stay in trash for 30 or 60 days. I believe and if photos and videos are in there that I never press delete for after those 30 days them all of them will delete automatically and permanently and I have some important photos and videos on the app that I can’t loose. It’s putting photos and videos in trash without me knowing, I don’t know if it’s a bug issue or not but I am suggesting that you guys come out with an update to fix this. It could be doing this to other people putting stuff in trash automatically without them knowing and after those 30 days they may loose everything bc it deleted permanently automatically.

- Serves it purpose

I ran out of space in my iCloud and had to find something to back up my photos. I use Google for most everything else so it made sense to use it for photos. I like that you can access the photos, along with all the other Google products, while logged into my google account. It automatically uploads pictures I’ve taken onto my phone and when I need to free up space on my phone I can choose that option in google photos. It’ll send all of the pictures uploaded to the deleted file on my phone. There are a lot of photo products out there that have an option to upload photos directly from Google Photos like Shutterfly or even choosing pictures to have printed at your local Walgreens. The only complaint is that I wish it didn’t take so long to load the pictures and when you first click on the photos, it’s a bit pixelated so it takes a while to clear up. Although, it does hold a lot of pictures for free so I’d rather it continue to be free than those complaints be corrected and pay a fee for faster/more storage.

- Just imagine how awesome Google Photos COULD be!

I drank the google kool-aid early on. Once I realized the connection between google photos and street view, or images in general, I realized the google tagging made some location easily identified. I learned this because of a scanned photo with no meta tags of my father and me in Trier, Germany. Sure - many people would have recognized the Porta Nigra in the background but I didn’t recall it. I learned it was in Trier because of Google’s automated location tagging. So... nifty, huh? It’s a technology that should be a little more clearly presented FOR CERTAIN. Regardless, i like it a lot. But I certainly understand the expectation to be explicitly asked in order to rightfully give permission for third party use. All that said - I realize the G-account agreement covers all these points and so there’s likely no legal recourse but that’s not what I’m seeking. I think the right thing to do is make this connection crystal clear when within the google photos environment. I’d sign up, provided the conditions were mutually beneficial. I think Google Photos is top notch!

- Does the work for me

My family and I started using Google photos as a way for us to share all the pictures we capture when we’re together and soon realized it’s a great way to share photos from when we’re apart as well. I love how easy it is to share photos and albums. Works really well with my iPhone and allows me to keep my storage space on my phone freed up for more photos! Another cool advantage to this photo sharing platform is the stylized photos and movies it randomly makes and suggests. I only wish I knew how to make a stylized photo or action photo on my own. Google photos allows you to save and search by faces and places. This includes even searching for your dog! It’s a little scary how it makes a movie of “They grow up so fast” which is a compilation of photos of my baby from infancy to toddlerhood - how does it know it’s the same kid? Incredible and freaky. In summary; I recommend Google photo to everyone that’s looking for an app to save and store photos. It’s incredibly simple to use and does the work for you.

- You get what you pay for, and this is free.

Save yourself now and have nothing to do with google photos. Seriously the worst and least user friendly app for photo sharing. It takes 10 min to upload a 1min video to the cloud on high speed internet. Ridiculous. Also it doesn’t separate your “uploaded photo/video” from the photo video it’s viewing off your actually phone so if you’re not careful you could accidentally delete photos thinking they’re on google cloud and they never actually uploaded. Lastly if you ever decide you want to delete google cloud and have no connection with it good luck because it is a long process to delete all your photos from the cloud and disconnect your photos from the account. It raised my blood pressure and ruined an entire day for me. No wonder it’s free. I’ll stick with Icloud. You get what you pay for at least. On icloud i could upload over 3K photos and videos before google cloud could finish uploading a couple of 60 second videos clips. This app is a joke. No idea how it has such high ratings. Maybe people only use it for uploading a few photos to share. If you have hundreds of photos to upload and share you could get them devolved and sent to the person in the Mail before google photos would finish.

- A bit of getting used to ......

Its a good way, great infact, to store your photos to relieve your ever expanding icloud storage problem. Whereas icloud virtually does everything for you once you have taken your shot, Google is a little more hands-on. Its not a bad thing, just most of us have become lazy and have to learn it all over. However, once you get used to moving your way around it you'll find plenty of support and a fairly common sensical approach. There is an assistant who is there to gather your photos into groups - as it sees it, and im not sure this is altogether necessary, im pretty sure most of us know who our friends & family members are - the assistant puts them all into fancy collages and albums etc. Im still fairly new and so far the only action im having a bit of trouble with is the great ability to write some info under each photo, we do forget things and it will be good to be able to read abit about what was happening etc, but so far, although ive written info under several photos, i havent yet been able to see it, well its not in the camera roll daily thingo, mabe in an album it can be viewed. Ill find out soon anyway. Altogether, better than icloud, in fact ive turned icoud drive off, it has a terrific editingtool, and then when you think you have it perfect Google asks you if you would mind if they did one last modification and boom - then it really IS perfect !! Great app.

- Why?

I seem to get a little #1 on the app icon everyday, as if to say I have a notification! But when I open the app there is no notification, seems google just want you to click on their app once a day for whatever reason??? If you open the app then immediately close it, it won’t hassle you again today, but tomorrow we go through it again. I try my best to support all google products only to find fault, on the 30 or so occasions I’ve had to deal with customer support with both a bug report and a FIX for them, half the time a patch is written that night with an update available the following morning, AWESOME!!! The other half of the time I felt 100% ignored. This 50% success rate of google actually listening to your legitimate complaint makes them the leaders of many industries, as most companies won’t change their product to suit you, they will give you a walk through on how to use their product but if you’re going to complain most companies will ignore you, not at Google! If your complaint sounds legitimate and can be fixed, Google will get straight onto it. This is a FIVE star product that only lets itself down by scamming you into clicking on it once a day by way of a fake notification that doesn’t exist when you get there. The reason for one star is, if you don’t get 5 you get 1, as I don’t read reviews rating 2, 3 or four stars & assume either do many people. That’s all folks ;)

- Almost perfect

I love this app, its easy to use and frees up valuable space on my iPhone. It’s amazing that we are given basically unlimited storage space, i was able to give up paying AU$10 a month for other cloud storage. My only complaint is how incredibly SLOW it is to upload your photo library initially. I had a little over 1000 pics on my phone and it’s been uploading almost constantly (I work from home so I can leave the app running day and night) and it’s been 4 days of uploading! I guess we can’t expect lightning fast speeds from a free program and once the initial upload is completed it should be quick and easy to keep on top of thereafter. I do have one request, I don’t like the idea of all my precious memories being in only ONE location. Imagine someone gets my password and just to be a jerk they delete all my pics! Could happen! So I bought a little 2TB external drive to make sure I have them stored somewhere else, it would be great if there was some way to easily copy the contents of my google photos account to the drive.

- My new favourite app

My new favourite app. Really practical and convenient way to free up your iPhone storage and share pics with your loved ones. I have a photo album of my son that I share with his grandparents who live 3 hours away. They love how it keeps them up to date with what our family is doing. Only they can see the photos and they can add their own photos too. Google pics automatically organisers your photos into albums. You can also manually set it up so it recognisers people and places. We’ve set ours up to recognise when a picture has our dogs in it so it automatically loads into the dog album. I also love the assistance option that automatically fixes lighting in photos and creates videos and collages of your pics. It also reminders you each day of memories using pics from years prior. I love this app. Genuinely am telling others to use it.

- iPad storage idea for google photos

So I don’t have mc h games bit could you add on this app that you can buy a iPad storage builder that what ever number you type in your storage on your iPad it’s self will have unlimited storage without deleting apps with this option people would be able to have a lot of storage that never gets full and allows free no full ups on the iPad storage if you make this happen tell everyone that some one who is me has saved everyone from deleting there favourite apps and photos please make this happen Also could you add a option called erase background for the photos so you can add stuff to them but you can choose to keep the background or get rid of it And add a option to like with the unlimited iPad storage option you can also add lots more apps and stuff but here’s the catch with this option everyone could easily get more games but hear me out an option to make photos 3d would be cool but you get to choose if you want to change them to 3d and change them back Also another option would be nice is a 360 built in camera that you can use in real life with your iPad or what ever you use like use it in real life or on a video now that would be cool If you can make this happen then we have nothing to lose

- As of current build :

Brilliant in every single way but.....First of all the good. The initial set up and transfer of all my main photos and videos from IPhone to Google photos is flawless and fast. As a tip use wifi if your on a low budget data plan. In one sense the Google photos app works effortlessly and prompts a user to clean up and delete photos from your iOS device as it happens. As a result I've turned off iCloud for photos completely. In addition ive freed up an absolute ton of space on my iPhone 👍🏼 The bug I've got with Google photos is by today's standards loading a video to watch using Google photos is to slow. These days things are instant especially the iOS photos app platform. 20 seconds or at times up to a minute can seem like a lifetime especially if the person nexto you starts asking why is your Google photos app taking so long to load a video clip 😳

- Most powerful

Google Photos is an extraordinarily powerful suite of photographic applications. Several years ago when facial recognition was released, it was an object of admiration and wonder. Now, even though it has become so familiar, the range of recognition of people, animals, objects and places has become ever larger and more powerful, almost unbelievably so. In combination with some other apps, Lens, Scan and Snapseed for example, it provides an amazing array of uses for the camera which go far beyond the traditional portraiture and landscape subjects. Photos is a very powerful document manager, aide memoire, and information miner to give just a few uses. Photographic technique has become no less important, but the sheer volume of good to superb output is a great inducement to unlock all the capabilities that the Photos family offer.

- Absolutely love the Assistant tab

Gonna say it right now, going into the app every now and then to see new photos just automatically being enhanced and cute collages being created is just... so fantastic. Honestly this app is literally perfect for organising your photos, videos, backing up, etc. I realise that more than 15GB of Google storage isn’t free and that’s the only downside to backing up. You’d have to download your photos to a physical hard drive every now and then for the sake of the online convenience if you aren’t willing to pay - but this is still fair enough and understandable since the base product is still free and always will be. It’s pretty cheap to upgrade from 15GB to 100GB - not free, but it’s affordable and the storage is enough for me to survive plenty of time with a wonderful convenience and no worries.

- Great but some improvement could make it better

1. Add a way to select and discard a face recognised by google from inside the photos. I have many recognised faces that are just random people on the background of my photos in busy places like Disney land. I have no way to discard the recommended face at the moment. 2. I wish I could see the size and resolution of photos and videos after upload to compare with the original if I wanted too. 3. Improve the upload feature so that it cumulatively adds data of a big file into the same image in the cloud rather than one big file as a whole. I have files up to 15GB and it takes a long time to reach 80% uploading and if computer shuts down or disconnect from the internet then it has to start all over again.

- So Easy!

I found out about Google photos when I was sent a link to a shared family history album. I was so impressed that I read up on it and started using for myself. I am not that tech savvy & if something gets too hard then I usually opt out and stop using. Not so with Google photos as it is so easy to use and it is a great way to manage your photos and back them up. It’s also a great way to share photos. In the case of the family history album that I mentioned earlier, the album contained about 300 old photos that were found under a bed. By sharing the album, each person could go into the album and add names and comments against the photos. Many of the subjects in the photos have since been identified.

- Not a review

This isn’t a review as it’s a feature wish or dream that is... What if one doesn’t want to share their Apple Photos to Google Photos, like for example have the option of an totally separate photo library to the main photo library held by iCloud. Like for my case I have 18+ (adult content) images of female models that I do not want showing up along side my iPhoto Library as at present I got to keep them in Files App which isn’t good as a photo library. I don’t have a need for my use case for Google to have access to my iCloud Photos Library but would rather have the option to use Google Photos as a total separate option for a library that isn’t linked to my phones photo library and ICloud.

- Can’t export or delete photos from google photos without deleting it on your phone photo library.

I used to think like everyone how convenient this app was to take space out from my phone. But now it seems like when I delete photos from google photos it also deletes the photo straight on my phone library as well. It also uses up my Drive space which was why I had to delete them.. but it also automatically deletes photos on my phone when I do so?? I also can’t seem to export the photos from google to my phone without sharing to someone? It’s so not user friendly and it shows that Google wants to take control of your photos!? Which is also really frustrating about how it connects to your phone and I can’t seem to find a way to disconnect google photos from my phone entirely. Not just un-sync it. Entirely. It’s impossible. They still have the control to keep your photos. This app honestly does not deserve a 4.7 stars rating.

- I LOVE THIS APP!!

Store all you photos, it’s sorts them for very quick easy viewing anytime, the assistant makes animations from bursts, panoramas, Face Recognition and sorting, shows memories etc without you asking it to and you can save if you like them, it’s all cloud based and very reasonable if you want store best quality. You can search by theme, date, person and you can even share specific photos with friends if you like without having to use up data by sending. Great thing is at any time I can view my memories from way back so they are not buried and forgotten in the millions of photos i have - and my whole family can view, access and upload their photos to it too. Awesome Application I love it!!

- Grouping request

This app is great. Can I please request that sometimes the grouping does not work correctly. When a new person is created and they do not come up in the search they are added twice. Can you please add a merge function to add the two people if the same name is created twice. Can we also have in the new feature section for rotating that when a similar face is shown it only learns when you click on the persons profile to group the same person. Can we have this same person suggestion appear in the new section so that the click through can be carried out without having to click on each person. Thank you

- It was great until it didnt store 1 video that’s very important to me.

I was very upset it didn’t warn me that my videos weren’t backing up, so i ended up deleting my original photos in my iphone, google photos shold stop receiving videos and photos all together when it is NO LONGER backing up coz what’s the point???? I am very upset coz it let me edit a long video into a short one and i even make an album out of it beleiving it was backed up coz why can I edit if it’s NOT saved in google photos??? Is that the reason and purpose of tour App??? To back up files??? Yes i may or may have not turn on the “turn on back up” but I have a new fon and my settings must hve been new. My bottom line, i wouldve appreciated it if you tell me straight to face that the video I EDITED in your google photos ate not saved so you better save it somewhere..NO IM NOT UPGRADING IN YOUR UNTRSTWORTHY F#%^*APP!!!

- Best in class, but still not good enough

This is the best photo management app, but it’s still missing some essential features. There is no “private” folder or image management, so screensavers can show photos you don’t want your family to see. Ouch. A passworded or locked option would be nice. Photo management for families is fiddily and should be an easy option for families already connected in google. There is no duplicate search function. The time/date management only changes the order of sorting, not the actual file (that backs up to the computer). It’s terrible if you have lots of scanned pics like me as it uses “scanned date”. The photo backup to computer is ok, but it needs to add some sort of folder structure. I have thousands of photos, and google just dumps them all into one folder which is slow if you have to wait for it to reorder or sort the folder. It would be useful if the computer backup was put into monthly or even yearly folders. And the biggest issue, terrible support. It’s either user forums, or some google chat saying “that feature isn’t available yet” Those as some gripes about an otherwise great program.

- Strongly recommended

This app was recommended to me when I was out of options of storing my photos off my iPod, about to go on holiday and was completely out of storage... though the photos take a decent amount of time to be backed up when you have large amounts, it is totally worth it. Not only do I now have all my photos safely stored away but I am also able to delete them from my device knowing that I can access them and expect them all to be there. My only recommendation to the app designer or software editor, is that you make all your photos accessible offline, this already may be done, though my iPod is sometimes a little tricky to deal with and only allowed me to see my recently viewed pics. Overall an amazing app!

- Google Photos

Awesome app! It has saved so much storage on my devices! When I saw the advertisements I was sceptical 🤨 I thought it was too good to be true, but when I downloaded this app I was not disappointed! 😆 I also love 💖 the fact that you can make movies and collages with your photos! (I love the music for the meow movie 🍿😻😹) The only negatives I can possibly think of is that asides from text message, whenever you want to import an image using apps such as Clips and iMovie, you have to go into this app and save it to your camera roll. Also videos can take a while to load sometimes. These are some minor inconveniences but asides from that this app is awesome 😎📸 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- Makes life easier

I've been searching for a way to save my videos and photos without losing access to them on my phone, and this has been the most reliable and easy to use backup system ever! I can confidently delete everything once it's saved on google photos, and continue capturing memories everywhere I go. It's so easy to retrieve all of them at any time, and it doesn't cost me a thing. Way better than iCloud which would hold everything but not give me access to my own photos when I wanted to backup onto my pc. Google is always my most preferred option for everything.

- Best Free Photo/Vid Storage

I love google photos. Was debating paying for cloud storage (I have all apple products) I really loved how apple formatted stuff (since I'm pretty basic with my understanding of all things tech) but my brother persuaded me to try google photos. The only downside is you need a really great wifi or internet connection to be able to upload your whole photo library. I've only managed to do that with my phone but the MAC photos kept crashing because of the bad wifi. (Bearing in mind I was in a third world country when I tried and tried to upload these) I'm back home in Australia and have yet to try uploading my whole photo library onto this app but fingers crossed it works.

- Great features but some failings

The assistant is a great idea and provides interesting stylised photos. The backup solution from my phone is great and better than iCloud backup. My only issue is the consistency and sync across apple photos and Google photos. When I edit or delete live photos in the native app, Google photos doesn't retroactively update which photos to sync or delete. This means I have to do manual cleanup in Google photos. I need to edit live photos in the native app because Google photos doesn't provide all the editing features that the native version does. Also, when I try to view live motion in the Google app there is always a delay and it feels clumsy. Fix the clumsy Ux and the double cleanup/sync work and you'll have 5 stars!

- Good App but could be Great!

Excellent points raised by Bz3rkr, wholeheartedly agree with every single 1. Other than that excellent app especially for those who only use it as a freebie. I pay for 200GB and share it between my whole family of 5 (including 4 iPads, 2 iPods, 3 iPhones, 1 computer) so it definitely comes in handy! Update Apr 2020: Had to upgrade our 200GB storage to next tier which is 2TB, which just shows, we use this A LOT (especially now that the kids are getting older too, with one in second year high school, and another one will be next year)!! Still very happy customers 😃😃😃

- Very Impressed

In a time when you to pay so much for back up services! I find this very impressive.. security well what is it anyway every server is hacked in some way and how do you know if you pay for back up you will still not have you photos looked at by other so you might as well increase the worlds photo banks for all history! A few years on I’m still very happy with Google Photos, it now means I have my life’s digital photos on hand at a moments call... just scroll back through time, or wait for memories of days past to pop up.. Thanks again Google

- Great App

I absolutely love google photos! The automatic creations that it creates is my favourite thing about this app. They way you can tweak all the settings to tailor it to your kind of data needs is great too. All different settings that can be changed and the choice to create more space on your device by deleting photos that have already been safely backed up is another top mark from me. I love anything that google creates. Google is my life! It has my life stored in its cloud and I love the security google provides. All in all, if you are not using google photos, you need to start. RIGHT NOW!

- Fantastic App, love it !!!

This is such a great app and a beautiful way to capture, sort, view , save and share our memories. It is incredibly easy to use & find photos from any date. The app recognises peoples faces and groups them automatically once you have named that person, it’s then easy to search photos of that person from any date. The app also automatically creates albums, videos and collages that you can choose to save or not. I have enjoyed looking up all our old photos from 10 years ago! It’s great that it has unlimited space. Great app overall !!!

- Great App, can be made much better

Great App but additional features would make this better than Apple. For example allow user to select which photo and videos (individually, or multiple selection) can be downsized and backed up to “high quality” so it doesn’t take up your google one storage plan. Provide a better memories feature that uses screen sizes better. Provide a better full screen interface. All photos are clustered to the left, it would be nice if albums, favourites are displayed better, all grouped without gaps, different view options. Improve the slideshow feature. Add widget to have photo of the day.

- Total Game Changer!

Google photos obliterates iCloud! (and that’s coming from a self-confessed Apple fanboy) It may seem nothing, but the ability to delete videos and photos from your device after uploading them to unlimited storage in the cloud is huge! Apple icloud won't let you do that, and so forces you to buy devices with more storage again and again! Apple's setup is quite sneaky actually and outdated! Google Photos has two storage settings: "High quality" and "Original quality". “High quality” setting allows for unlimited photo and video storage for photos up to 16 megapixels and videos up to 1080p resolution. “Original quality” setting gives you 15 GB free and then you pay from there. However 16 megapixels and 1080p HD video is pretty dam good - And it’s free and unlimited so Im stoked with that setting! Thanks so much Google for changing the game! Our family can now probably keep our phones and ipads for several years more!

- It’s ok for free!

Free high quality unlimited storage! It is feature rich and excellent with searching features. I took one star off, because I hope one day google creates a stand alone photo app for my computer, rather than just an uploader for computer. And another star off because the use of my uploads in googles policy is not as wholesome for my liking (they explicitly explain that google scans your photos and combines it with other services likely to advertise to you). Videos take ages to buffer or play once uploaded. And uploading lots of stuff takes ages too, and doesn’t seem to remain uploading in the background if you leave the app. But for a cost free overall alternative, how can you not like the service, with apps for iPhone and iPad and is free.

- Amazing

Google photos allowed me to see memories from long ago when I was a child which I did not have backup for! It is AWSOME and makes cool collages with me and my mum. I could see so many things. The picture search is amazing. When I take a photo I can search what it is. When I didn’t know a spiders name, I took a photo and then searched it and came up! Thank you for making this app, it makes it so much easier and I defiantly recommend this app to anyone!! My only regret with this app is that it keeps on sending me emails and notifications that my backup is not enough but this is still an amazing app to have.

- Google photos is a good app to store photos

Google photos is amazing for storing all my photos in one place and know that if my phone breaks and I don’t have a back up, I still have my photos of me and friends that can not be replaced. I find that google photos is fast and easy to access but one click of a bottom and you can see the photos that you have saved. Don’t let google photos run on you mobile data unless you have unlimited because it will use a lot of data to keep syncing your photos. I give the app 5/5 stars.

- Google photos

Great app appreciate it, would like to do more to save space, but to complicated & hard I’d lose photos & wouldn’t be able to recover them when I needed to. Modern technology is all for the younger generations these phones are to complex for people in their 60’s & 70’s Even the word google is a child’s word not a mature adults word, in my entire life I have probably only said that word in a sentence a couple of times when I was a teenager. Even the stupid nickname at the end you can’t send unless you have a nickname and guess what every nickname you can think of is taken so you’ve gotta put something ridiculous... this is exactly what I mean about technology

- Really really good, and would recommend

The app is really really conventional and helpful. When I go on hikes I feel much safer to take my phone and risk it breaking knowing that my photos are safe. I love the extras, like the animations. So cute! One thing that I think would help the app, is if founders were transferred onto the app. For example, with my phone it has the ability to recognise faces and put them into their own folders of other photos of themselves. It would be nice to keep my stuff organised when I transfer photos onto the app. All in all, brilliant app!!!

- AWESOME APP!!

Has to be my all time favourite photo app, I now have photos from all the way back to 2005 thanks to Google photos. If it had not been for the many devices I have linked to my photo account with google I would’ve have access to all of these fabulous memories and I LOVE the new features where you are sent memories from 5,6,7,8 etc. years ago today, the hi lights of recent times and the fun little extras with the montages, collages and many other groovy bits that help me to see and remember things I haven’t recalled for years. THANKS GOOGLE!!! 😁👍🏻

- Better than iPhone Photos app.

This is the best photo app I’ve ever used, you get unlimited free online backup (the reduced file size barely changes the photos appearance), it also beats all other apps in the following; - Registers faces better than any other app, listing that persons face in a folder. - syncs up to the google cloud, so you can access it anywhere considering you use the correct account. - Has a more streamlined interface over Apple photos. - Photos automatically get backed up every time you open the google photos app.

- Awesome App - Google Pictures

I've given this app by Google 5 stars because it's one of the best apps that I've got and it's free. It frees up the memory even on my old SG4 phone and iPads as well. I use it a lot because I often have heaps of photos cluttering up my what memory I've got left but with "Google Pictures" It always works and is reliable for saving all my photos with or without edits, collages. As well as various guys, videos/movies that I've created etc. I highly recommend this app compared to so much rubbish out there and it's free! I just love it!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- Amazing

This app is way better than the stock iOS photos app. However. We NEED to be able to crop videos. With the addition of screen recording in iOS 12 I believe it is, we still have no way to crop videos aside from getting a third party application. In iOS 13, the stock photos app allows people to crop their videos, but lots of people who have an iPhone 6/6 plus and below, we can't get that and we kind of depend on this app. I love this app and prefer it over apple's photos app, so please add a feature where you can crop videos

- Does exactly what its supposed to do. Perfectly

This app is very useful for anyone who has a device low on storage with a ton of photos they need backed up. Extremely simple to set up, and gives you free, unlimited storage for high quality photos (but for original quality it will use google drive storage). When the photos have been backed up, it will use them to automatically created animations, stylised photos and more. It supports backing up live photos, and is essential for anyone who wants simple, free image backups

- Lock?

I love this app, i normal don't do reviews but its amazing. It's cleared 90gb of photos on my photo/ipads and other devices. i recommend this for cleaning your device and clearing storage. even per say 2gb, a little goes a long way and i recommended getting this if you haven't. Free and useful. Locks. I reckon there should be a option to lock the full google apps or accounts. It would be cool and add more security to it as i lend my devices to people to use sometimes and i have important documents i need to keep safe. once i added my photo of my draft living resume and the photo got permantley deleted.

- Works well

My photos have come to life with automatic facial recognition grouping photos of the same person and very easy to creat albums of particular events and destinations to share with others. It makes it easy to share photos with others too! Would be great when you are viewing all your photos if there was some icon overlay on the photo so you can see that it is in an album. There is no way of visually knowing if photos are already in an album when you are trying to sort them or know where you were up to in putting in an album.

- Constant signing in. 😡

I originally gave Google 5 stars and was happy with the service, until... Now when I’m transferring photos and videos to the app from ‘photos’ (on my iPhone), I’m asked every 10 minutes to sign in with my Apple ID; it IS EVERY 10 MINUTES! I have screen shots to verify it. If my screen shuts down, I have to re enter it, too. I don’t have a problem with one sign in at the start, I’d even expect that. What happened to the app I gave 5 stars? This is just frustrating and pointless, why is it happening. No forums can help me, as the only one to ask the same question, has no answer (and that was a Google forum!).

- Great App

I’ve had Google photos for some 3 years now and I have no complaints! It stores all your photos unless you wish to delete them ... the app also suggests steps to take if you are getting a bit full, for eg archive. It also picks out photos that it thinks will be improved with a few tweaks and you can do this or just forget about it. You can run it the way you want or go with suggestions it makes ... this in my mind makes it a very useful app !whichever way you want to use it!

- Essential for backing up your photos

If you take photos with your phone, then you need this app. If you want your photos to be secure, to share them easily with others, to view them across devices, or many other things then you need this app. On top of its secure online backup, ease of sharing across your devices and with friends, it also lets you search in many amazing ways - by date, location, object, person, and so many things. It's a very clever app and an essential one too.

- Google photos

This is just the best ever photo storing device you take the picture with your phone and when you hit wifi it loads it straight onto google photos and your pictures are safe ‘ you can also drop them in off your pc after you have down loaded your Camera ‘ I down load my camera to my iPad and then off they go to google photos ‘ I do keep. Second copy of my valuable pictures on a hard drive just in case my account gets hacked

- Biggest mistake ever to use this app

Was trying to clear up space on my phone and was recommended this app for my photos. Transferred my photos over, even put quite a few of them into albums, favourite sections as well for easy access, then go back later on and all the albums I created had disappeared. Type in locations of where photos were taken and can’t find photos. The face recognition part will show faces of people in the crowd from photos which is pretty useless. Bought a new phone last week, same brand just newer model transferred all my apps over and now the only things that are on my new phone now are videos only. No photos, yet all my photos are still on my old phone.

- Love it 😍

So easy to group photos and people then turn them into collages and videos. I did find some of the photos lost quality with the unlimited download but I am not a photographer and use my phone and Ipad to take pics. Love the syncing and sharing aspect made so easy. Be warned, it can take up to 24hrs for the people to come up in your group so you can name the for easy search. Just be patient, you cannot tag or name until google has done its thing in the background. Love it❤️

- Some bugs to sort out

Great app with a great AI assistant. Does exactly what it says. However, if you have a lot of photos and videos, the initial backup takes a long time. In all fairness my phone had 14GB of content to backup, but the initial backup quite literally took me months. A second (and quite frequent) problem occurs with this app too. The app dates photos, but a lot of photos of my son taken 3 years ago show up as being taken 6 years ago. It’s probably worth mentioning that my son is currently only 5. The app doesn’t let you amend or change these mistakes. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update

- Best managing thousands of images

About 6 months ago our everything-Apple family switched from using Photos and iCloud with paid storage to Google Photos with paid storage to manage our 35,000 image library. Google works perfectly, and its automated facial recognition of people and pets, its automatic suggestions for creative edits, and powerful search, are awesome. It’s a pain to make the shift but finding the photo you know exists in a large library is much easier with Google.

- Awesome cloud storage

Since they added the account sharing feature instead of just albums google photos is our go to family app for photos and videos. Our family lives overseas and they always want to see what our little one is up to and now they can. My wife and I have our phones setup to automatically backup all photos/videos and now we both can see everything any time without saying “can you send that” all the time.

- Love it!

I have 32GB of storage and I have used it all nearly going to get a new phone with more storage. Then I saw this app on an ad and was like ‘this can’t be real?!’ So I downloaded it and found this app actually works love it so much. Although it takes a while to get all the photos I have to the app and I only had like 1,500 photos. Besides that I definitely recommend this app, I never normally review apps but I just had to for this app. Also love the assistant that you tells you different things on the app. ABSOLUTELY GET THIS APP!!!! 😀🤩

- Needs faster upload speed

When I first used this, it took weeks to upload all my photos. Even though it is set to operate in the background...it doesn’t!!! I have to have the app open and ion at all times for this to upload my photos. After being away and out of wifi range for a week or so, usually a few photos to upload at once, takes forever. I have been trying to upload for the last week, but soooooooooo slow, it isn’t funny. Yet internet speed is fine, so don’t know why. So I need to sit my phone, plugged in and always on to finally finish the uploads. Needs to do better, way better. Would be great app otherwise.

- High

Great for storing But 15 GB is to low for the high quality image cameras take now a day should have at least 50GB free

- Top

You have to get that It release the data of your phone but keep you see you photos as you want

- Awesome!!

One word: AWESOME!!

- I’m crying

I downloaded google photos so save storage due to the fact that I have a lot of photos. Once it properly downloaded it deleted over 1000 of my photos and videos and I do not know how to get them back. I have a very personal video of a loved one who battled cancer and lost his voice and I had a video of him singing. That footage is now lost to this app. Please if you have anyway to help me contact me. Any help will be much appreciated!

- Pretty good.

Just hope that the space for photos is unlimited. :v

- Génial

Belle option pour ceux qui n’ont plus de stockage dans leur cellulaire. J’adore.

- Broken promise

Google betrayed every user by breaking the free unlimited photo storage. I’ve been using it since 2016 and if google goes ahead with its plan, I’m planing to ditch all google services.

- I enjoy goggle pictures !!

best program

- NEW POLICY!!!

Keep the app free!!! The only reason I picked google photos in the first place is because of the free unlimited photo backup. If this changes I’ll be gone. Lots of other options out there if I need to pay. I regret setting up my whole family on your “free photo backups”. They’ll be changing as well. Don’t ruin a good thing Google.

- Très bon outils!

Très bon outils pour faciliter le stockage et le classement de photos!

- Yet another app

That’s defying it’s own mission statement. They chose to say never run out of space again. Now there will no longer be free storage (beyond a pitiful amount). Well, guess what? You broke your own promise.

- Google changed their policy

Google is changing their policy of storing the photo for free, I feel cheated

- Google removing unlimited photo uploads ?

Typical, first get users to upload to your platform then try to stick it to them to pay for more storage. I figured you give me free uploads and in exchange google can sniff through my emails 👎🏻

- 好应用

自动整理手机照片,不丢失。

- Unlimited high quality

I just learnt that google will not provide unlimited high quality pictures and videos to be uploaded starting mid next year. This was one of the best options that was provided and I’m very disappointed. Could you please tell me if all users have to pay after the new change and remove all the previous photos?

- Thanks

Reduce the monthly cost a little more please

- Won’t run without full photo permissions

The new iOS photo access restrictions are fantastic, and unfortunately this app refuses to run h less you give it access to ALL of your photos. I have no interest in backing up all my photos, I just want to interact with a few albums, for which this app does NOT need full access. This overly broad access requirement is unacceptable.

- why would you?

why would a service like unlimited photo storage change? many people use it to save up storage and this is just sad if y’all can change your mind, many people would keep the app

- Effortless

To Whom it May Concern, My 8 year old daughter Aviana recently passed away. I wanted to arrange a slideshow of pictures for her funeral service and was stopped dead in my tracks by how overwhelming of a task it would be. I was happy to see you had the option to “Celebrate a Loved One”. You had made a video of Aviana last year and it melted my heart to no words so I know you will do a wonderful job and thank you for making this easy for me. For the artistically inclined Google Photos saved the day. Yours truly, Anuli and Marc-Andre

- It was good for free

Bait and switch. I never needed a cloud solution. I moved all photos from a free desktop solution that met my needs. Now i need to reverse this decision and I need to download everything back to my desktop solution to get rid of google photo’s.

- Google photos

I do not like google photos controlling the photos destiny that I take with my I-phone. Very hard to download photos to my laptop photo library. Not happy with this app at all

- I’m really upset

So I’ve been using this for years and now they will be removing unlimited storage. This is really going to ruin the app for me and I have to find something else to use

- Photo access

I’m giving this 1 star because the app insists on getting full photo access even though in the privacy settings, the option of selected photos says it should work. There’s no way google needs full album access for me to view my friends shared photos. Please change this, Google

- Too much privacy invasion.

Switched to apple. More private and nicer to use.

- Google promises

Well this didn’t pan out, with them going to paid service. Not going to work long term

- Keep it free

We loved this app. It was one of unique services. Please keep it free like now. If it needs payment then there are lots of alternatives out there.

- NEW POLICY

I started using google photos because it had unlimited storage for photos and videos. and now with this new policy it will no longer be the same. so what the hell am i supposed to do now.

- Go F$&@ yourself for this ap!

Download the app and accidentally clicked the back up option now I cannot delete my photos from my Google account without deleting them from my phone because Google permanently links them like heroes that your stuck with for life! Now my Google Drive account is full and I have no choice but to make a new email address or pay for more storage! really wish I never downloaded the stupid app! USELESS! TOTAL SCAM!

- Great app; you done messed up

If you’re getting rid of the unlimited cap; you’re gonna have a bad time 😕

- Formidable pour créer des albums et les partager

Mes albums Picasa Web ont été transférées il y a longtemps sur Google Photos et je l'utilise depuis ce temps pour classer et partager des albums de photos. On peut faire des rechercher sur des items contenues dans les photos. Google détecte tout seul si une photo contient une table, une auto, une maison, etc. Il y aussi Google Lens qui permet de savoir le mon d’une chose, plante, lieu, etc. Belle utilisation de l’intelligence artificielle.

- Violating Apple rules?

I can’t use this app because I refuse to give it acces to all my photos. I don’t believe an app should be able to demand access to ALL our photos in order to work, specially now that Apple has given us control to select which photos we’re willing to give access to. I pay to store some photos in their cloud and I can’t use this app to have have an easy access to it. Apple shouldn’t allow this to continue, even if it’s a Google app.

- Awesome

I love google photos

- Wants full access to photos

No way I grant access to all photos. And the app won’t work without it ... uninstall

- Why do they need access to all photos

I never made it past the screen where they ask for access to photos, I tried to give them access to a select few photos but it would only allow me to use the program if I gave access to ALL my photos. I’m normally not super paranoid about privacy and that sort of thing but I really don’t understand why they need access to all my photos, not just the few I allow them to access🤔

- Select photos vs all photos.

I decide what you can access. Uninstalled.

- Doesn’t respect privacy.

The app no longer functions unless it has access to your entire camera roll.

- Bad google

Google has broken the app so that you can no longer access it unless you grant Google access to all of your photos so that they can scrape your data. I wanted to use the “Selected Photos” option to only upload certain photos to share with family, but now Google has made that impossible. Unless you consent to grant access to all your photos and associated meta data Google won’t let you open the app.

- Being back back the automatic photo suggestions

Still good but I miss the automatic photos suggestions (colour pops, mini movies, enhancements etc)

- Super application !!!

Simple et gratuit.

- Love the app but..

Love the app, but since the new update I have a persistent notification badge on the app icon, and I can’t find any way to dismiss it ☹️

- I like it

Its very helpful but the app shows a have 1 notif but i cant find it 😆

- glitchy

when i try viewing old photos from years or months ago, it never lets me scroll down . once it scrolls down it resets to another time period in that year and its so annoying. please fix it.

- Make it Free! >:(

I don’t have enough space to even get the app! MAKE THE GAME FREE SO “IT” DOESN'T TAKE SPACE!

- Plus possible de caster avec ChromeCaste

J’utilise plusieurs produits Google YouTube et Google Play ont le bouton caster. Et sur Google Photos le bouton n’est plus affiché en haut d’écran Ou est passé le bouton

- Love the app

Easy and simple to use. Go ahead and enjoy even with Chromecast Ultra and watch on your tv big screen.

- Photos

Gets better by the day.only question I have —- I have taken photos of old family albums and loose prints to retain and discard old hard copies. Pre digital images end up being dated to the current snapshot date — anyway of cleaning this up? Maybe a box on the photos allowing a good guess?

- Incroyable

Avoir 15 ans de sa vie en photos qui te suit partout, juste WOW!

- Excellent!

I downloaded it months ago to access an album someone shared, and now it has become my main photo app! I love the ease of use, all the editing options, and how seamless transitions are between different areas of the app. I love how clean, reliable, and organized the app is. I adore the assistant and always look forward to the creations assistant comes up with. They are always awesome!! I have recommended this app to many people.

- Love it!

❤️ It!

- What a reversal

I’ve suggested this app to family members for years and now with the limiting of uploads I find it to be a truly selfish and self serving reversal of what this app was advertised to be.

@Easykill42 @Huawei try google drive, upload all photos there

@secretGeek OneDrive for full fidelity Google photos at unlimited quantity (although that's leaving soon - it's so useful though that I'll probably end up paying them). I have Amazon prime so I plan on pushing them to that service too in the near future

tae’s bae

i hate google photos for reminding me about how happy i was a year ago 😭😭🤚🏼

@Jason_Simpson @AppleSupport Has she considered using photos through Google Photos on her phone? Then on her laptop or PC, she can open her browser and type in and save them that way. However, until June, there is also free high quality unlimited storage.

Not google photos reminding me I was ugly Smfh man

@LungileMahlangu Next time sign in on Google images when I change phones I still have my photos backed up.

Nickelback teams up with Google Photos to make a parody of their own song

@flintonclinton1 I love Google images nothing on there deserves to be deleted I use it as my back up, I only delete photos on the phone, what I love about google images is that even if I lose a phone I’ll still have my photos.

Michael 💀BoneDaddy💀

I had to literally go through my Google Photos to find these cause these photos were taken on my iPhone during the time.
