Only one issue
by YanaAF on 2022/05/21 09:13
I have nothing against this app personally except the playback. You could seriously have the fastest internet out there and it will still take years to play my videos. It’s annoying having to close the app multiple times (even that won’t do anything). That’s it though, the app will save your things especially when it’s connected to your account. ✅
Incredible application
by Gareth10810 on 2022/05/21 06:48
I just love the fact that you can type in the persons name and it locates all the photos for you, the daily updates and the don’t they grow faster auto assistant is lovely!!! It’s actually more worthy of 10 stars !!!

My precious Boxer pictures
by Daysi's Mom on 2022/05/21 01:14
I am so incredibly grateful for Google Photos! I lost my 9 1/2-year-old boxer boy, Buster, on May 5. I have pictures from years and years ago and I was so grateful to be able to easily access them on Google Photos! My heart is still broken into 1 million pieces, but I’m grateful that I can watch old videos and see all pictures readily. It reminds me of just how happy his life was!

Trash app
by violinist10293 on 2022/05/20 21:02
Don’t install this app on your iPhone. It will fill up your gmail space immediately with your photos that you already store on your iCloud. Later it blackmails you to buy space or else… Most people end up paying them monthly fees because you can’t fight them on their own ground. You can try removing photos from the app and the trash folder, and stopping the automated back up, but the space is never coming back!

Amazing, Practical, Useful
by Tiffanyy77!! on 2022/05/20 16:23
It has saved so much space on my iPhone phone. The ability of the software to recognize the photos I have in my phone and what has already been saved onto Google photos allowing me to delete it from my own storage saving space for apps and other photos. It identifies people, events, days, and random items and shows you the photos by categories. I can find photos of specific people and by date. Love, love, love and will recommend a thousands times over! An old friend from high school showed it to me and I haven’t turned back since.
Saved Me Many Times Over
by iMonkglen on 2022/05/20 15:55
Sharing is easy. Mostly, backing up all my supposedly backed up photos for all the past gazillion years has been great. My other backups are okay, but none were as long lasting or thorough. Lots of perks keep me coming back. My Google account is also my most secure and easy to use.

Surprises popup with new views of my pics

Easily the BEST photo storage system.
by Clark711 on 2022/05/20 15:39
If you take more than, say 3 photos, each week, then you need an automatic image backup system. Google Photos does that automatically, so you don't have to bother. Google Photos will help you make your photos look better - brighter, more pop, color improvement. It also has great organizing and searching capability. You can normally find a photo from three years ago, in less than 10 seconds.

Bug with archiving photos
by Tweedy05 on 2022/05/19 23:16
I have encountered this frustrating issue that has only recently been occurring. Whenever I try to archive photos, whether it be one or a hundred, they only briefly vanish into the archive folder, but moments later they pop up back in my main photo album! Please fix this! I like google photos and I don’t want to have to switch to another service.

Thankful for google photos!
by WhitElliott5 on 2021/01/16 09:34
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 ;)
Love it-plain and simple.
by whitreneeXo on 2020/12/19 07:29
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. 😘🤗✌🏽
Rich, vibrant colors and other fun touches
by LauraTheMastermind on 2021/04/28 06:12
I started using Google photos back when I had an LG and was still using XP on my desktop. Colors are richer, more vibrant. I like the feedback message I sometimes get on the bottom of select photos such as “Fix Lighting” or “Order Photo”. It’s useful and the lighting adjust message is always spot on; makes the photo have more depth. The other aspect I like is when I find one of my photos had been “stylized” or “motion” had been added by whoever at Google makes these touches. I don’t mind the feedback and that’s what you get when you agree to allow them to modify. I took a hiatus from Google photos to work with another photo editing tool. When I returned, I found all my pictures neatly archived. Pleasant surprise when I found many I forgot I had. My only negative: back when I was working with windows XP and an LG, Google photos had more filters and other features such as blemish blending and natural looking skin tone enhancers. The best was the awesome selection of frames to chose from. These features have been removed so I need to bridge my photos to another editing app for this. Other than that, Google photos is still my preferred primary editing tool. Thanks for the years of creativity and for thoughtfully archiving all of it.
Storage Dream (maybe?!)...
by KLP/KPGee9 on 2021/02/20 17:18
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.
Stores my photos as long as they are not 4K
by Auric Nova on 2018/05/29 00:51
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.

Best app ever!
by Yajnesh on 2021/07/15 16:50
This app is amazing! Much better than the original Photo app in many ways. (Not trying to criticize the app, it’s pretty neat too, just stating my opinion) Although all you can do is look at and edit your photos, I still have so many ways how this particular app is really cool too. 1, there are really cool editing options! You can make really cool collages, interesting animations, amazing color pops, splendid cinematic photos, and terrific movies! 2, there are really cool features! It organizes your photos into different things, (Birthdays, Weddings, etc.), you can share everything you create (And by everything, I mean literally EVERYTHING you create on that bad boy) and so many other really cool things! I could spend hours on that app, it’s so cool! 3, Google Photos actually edits your photos into better ones! Here’s an example: I took a picture at a beach and it looked really nice. When I looked at the photo again on Google Photos I realized the app had turned it into a mind blowing photo! It looked like a painting! So to sum this review up, I just want you to know and understand that Google Photos is the most amazing app I have ever seen! So what are you waiting for? Stop sitting on your fannie and download Google Photos today! Like NOW!!
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.
Going from iphone to Google Photos
by klwalk73 on 2022/02/14 20:54
So far I’m impressed! It was very easy to start but then it totally slowed down which is ok because I had allot of pictures. However, the problem was, that i couldn’t find out why or if i was supposed to use my phone or stay off of it? I started the process at a time where I shouldn’t need my phone just in case but I not knowing what to expect was daunting because I was so excited at how quickly i could see all of my pictures in the app even tho im very limited on space on my phone. I was thinking wow this app is amazing! But i didn’t know if my photos were safe or not and it said processing but didn’t show any physical sign that i could see as to how many pictures were safe and how many to go. But just looking around in the app I’m excited because it looks easy and their are lots of options! I also got the feeling I was in a safe environment with Google. I hope that’s true because there are a lot of neg reviews for Google and I’ve always kept my gmail because it’s always been awesome. I’m ok with my iphone stuff but I still love Samsung!! If the iphone wasn’t a gift I would totally still be using Samsung. I’ve had my iphone 4 yrs now and i haven’t really seen much advantage to having it! Cant wait until all my photos are secure in Google photos!
Hands down best app for keeping & sharing life's most memorable moments
by MeghaMillie on 2017/10/03 03:13
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.
Great app until.... $$$$$$
by Strangermelissa on 2021/03/29 00:07
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.
No flexibility
by StaceyT6 on 2019/12/25 14:05
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.
Almost perfect!
by Jen's Pics on 2021/01/01 06:53
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!
Love
by leiasgram on 2020/09/16 19:30
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! 🥰
Secure backup for free
by clwest4 on 2021/01/13 18:39
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!
Google Photos is the only way to go!
by Angel8606 on 2018/08/15 01:00
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!
Google Photos is the greatest!!!
by someyahoo on 2021/09/17 09:52
Google Photos is and has been the answer to my photo storage needs. I have told my family, my friends and my business colleagues about Google Photos and it’s benefits, like editing, and sharing, and the photo assistant just to mention a few. I have become a fan of many if not most of the other Google apps. I could go on but Google is doing such a great Historic service with the apps like Google Photos. I am sold and I will follow, use and support Google in what ever endeavors it pursues. Keep up the good work and keep the tweaks and improvements coming. History will remember and identify Google’s contribution to preserving History including social and political trends, including those that are outside the political or social mainstream. History is important and Google has the ability to remember and follow the trends, even if at the moment they seem unacceptable. I do not support the wholesale removal of posts that are considered political or that are deemed to be outside the mainstream such as with food like saturated fat being good or bad or one diet being healthier than another or the use of certain products like medications or vitamins.
love it
by Fozzy Bearr<3 on 2020/07/03 21:31
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!
Be careful what you upload and store!!
by dmgreenw on 2019/11/21 22:21
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
by 16/50 on 2019/02/19 14:02
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.
This app is a parasite
by drake_cantype whatev he want on 2021/09/13 03:45
PLEASE make it obvious how to prevent Google Photos from accessing your iCloud photos. It is a parasite that is adding all of my photos to my Drive storage even though I don’t use it and deleted it a long time ago. I don’t want the storage on my phone taken up on my Google Drive as well. It means I only have 2 GB that can be used for Slides, Docs, and files, since you get 15 for free. This is a much bigger problem than it should be, since I CANNOT get Google Photos to stop syncing my iPhone photos to my Drive. It is literally preventing me from creating Slides and Docs since it’s taking up 13 GB from my phone and taxing that on my Drive as well. I turned syncing off and deleted the app again yet it is still saying that Google Photos is taking up 13 GB of my 15 GB storage on my Drive. I can’t just remove all of my photos on there because it would then delete the photo I have on my iPhone. This is even more infuriating since I don’t even use Google Photos. I deleted it a long time ago and then I go to edit a Google Slide and it says that i can’t because my storage is full. All taken up by an app I don’t even use, and something that should only take up iCloud storage, NOT Google Drive. It is using my iPhone photos to prevent me from using Slides and Docs. This is terrible. I’ll delete my review if this is resolved.
I like it, BUT...
by adsitimray on 2017/09/20 13:16
I like Google Photos, but I wish their was an option under the &#34;EDIT&#34; 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&#39;s phone, since I don&#39;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 &#34;ME&#34;, I wouldn&#39;t want him clicking on the tab and see photos of his mother that he shouldn&#39;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&#39;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!
Worst app ever
by maggie_doyle on 2022/01/14 17:38
I wanted to load on the photos on my phone so I could free up space, but the limit on what’s free is really small and the space is shared with your email so it started to tell me that my email was full and I wasn’t gonna receive emails anymore. Obviously that’s the dumbest thing ever so I bought a 2 TB hard drive and decided to store my extra photos that way, because the concept of paying for space in the “cloud” is honestly ridiculous imo. But the reason that I even am taking the time to write this review is because when I then went to delete the photos from google photos it didn’t give me the option to do so without also deleting them from my phone. So as far as I’m aware there permanently on Google and if I want to delete them off of Google I also delete them from my phone. There may be a way around the but I didn’t do too much digging. Also it divides all the photos by day so if you want to highlight all of your photos to delete a big chunk at a time you can’t. There’s so many things that are just so painfully dumb about this app that I had to write this review which isn’t something that I normally do. But unless you love manually deleting emails 100 at a time (there were 12,000 in my inbox) and having Google photos permanently linked to your Apple photos, or you just absolutely love paying for storage don’t waste your time and energy.
10/10 Recommend!
by EIA101 on 2019/09/15 02:53
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!
Wish All Assistants Were This Good!
by Goldy121 on 2020/04/04 01:47
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!
Best thing for my cloud storage
by s2019nw on 2020/07/26 15:15
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&#39;s made. I love it&#39;s powerful search function and face recognition which can track same person all the way to his life time. I love it&#39;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!
Hate this stupid app
by lo_well on 2020/12/22 01:56
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!!!
Finally! Google, helping to create peace of mind when I run out of storage for my photos!
by Rockdez on 2018/04/05 16:51
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! :)
Hey
by hhskdjsnsnsjzjsnwbzjkznwbsoz on 2020/10/26 02:11
I don’t know what I have ever done to deserve this but I don’t feel like it’s correct bc I’ve always tried to be kind and good to those around me. I want to find my true love. I have tried so hard to teach myself patience in chaos, generosity for those in need and faith in our creator. My journey has been long, tragic and at times down right impossible but I still push thru because I know I have a purpose in this life. Whether that be to pick up a stranger walking down the interstate, help someone who is having a rough day by listening to them talk or just being somewhere at the right time to effect a small task so greater things can happen, I believe! I believe that God has always walked right beside me and I am so proud of what he has helped me to become. I am strong! I am able to face my fears! I am able to show generosity to those who don’t necessarily know they need it and definitely don’t think they deserve it. It’s very hard at times and occasionally I fall and scrape my shin but I get back up. There is so much bad in the world, putting good back into it can only improve this world and the beautiful hurting souls that inhabit it.
Easy storage, fun features
by jamaicangel00 on 2019/03/27 03:09
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 🙂
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 &#34;upload in background&#34; 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&#39;t know if Google Drive and Google Photos &#34;play nice&#34; with one another.
I love google photos
by Brother Gollum on 2020/01/16 00:23
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&#39;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&#39;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.
Easy to organize but not to print or save
by Betspa on 2022/03/15 21:06
Very easy to take photos and put into albums. Used to put into folders but then only one picture per folder. With albums the same picture can be put into several albums! I only gave 3 stars bc I cannot print from google photos directly. I still haven’t figured it out! Google photos no longer puts photos into google drive AND google photos when taken as it once did I was told. I want the double back up. I cannot figure out how to remove Microsoft photos (where some, not all, pictures go) (the app that comes w iPhones). My goal is to have the ability on PC to get to google photos not Microsoft photos. Cannot find google photos in file explorer. Any help would be EXTREMELY Appreciated! I have been searching and trying for months. Thank you. Would like to have google photos in file explorer. I also would like to know how to put email pictures into google photos. I can download but then what? I can’t just click on download and hold the picture and move to google photos, only Microsoft photos. Why is this the same review? This would skew the results of the survey/review. Shame on you google photos!
Yes it rad! It’s better than face book for family photos and being able for all to use
by Jason Bryant 503 on 2018/11/29 13:23
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 😊😉😎
Ehhhhh......read before you download
by Scooby2121 on 2021/03/22 05:43
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 it BUT ...
by Julz xo on 2020/12/31 07:02
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.
Can’t get rid of unneeded photos even though there’s a delete option, not organized, uses my storage
by azsedcgyhnjo on 2018/10/21 04:14
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.
such a helpful and amazing app
by abi loves google photos on 2019/06/20 15:05
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.
Great app
by Macorin on 2018/08/25 02:30
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.
It was great up until the recent update.
by KingbossJr. on 2020/07/13 11:00
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 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Amazing
by UTPhotog on 2018/05/05 14:53
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.
Issue with google photos
by Cheribeliber on 2021/01/28 09:04
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.
Easy to use, a life saver!
by dovesy on 2020/06/24 22:01
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!!!
Best App/Program on the web!!!
by JohnnyComeHome on 2018/04/27 03:31
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!
Can NOT go Back to Life Before Google Photos
by PJ Jackson13 on 2019/11/27 11:36
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
by Beaver.A on 2018/11/28 14:43
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)
Organizes your visual life impeccably with little to no work on your part!
by Westpalmdrifter on 2018/10/07 04:48
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&#39;ll like it. Promise.
Just imagine how awesome Google Photos COULD be!
by Dan Pineau on 2020/09/23 19:10
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!
Batch-Archive Only? How About Batch-Deleting?
by smmrsvr on 2021/11/25 18:27
Can’t beat the price, and the fact that they’ll hardly go out of business like PhotoBucket did — and my old photos with it. Now I would like Google Photos to give me the option to either batch-archive or batch-delete on the same screen when they remind me of the memes and document snapshots I have in storage. That’s the user-intuitive way. They want me to batch-archive so that’s what they offer, and I end up storing a lot of junk since I have both WhatsApp and GP set to sync with my phone storage app (I want to keep the photos my family sends, but with it come memes, viral videos etc). I don’t have the time at the end of the day to go through both storage apps deleting the junk. Another thing is they didn’t keep up to date with the news when they suggested an album to be titled “Trip USA-Canada” in Aug’21 just bc we took pictures in the American boat in Niagara Falls. Canada’s borders were closed to Americans due to the pandemic; and the only photos of Canada I had were taken from the boat looking up to the buildings right on the borders—by all measures a stretch to call it a Canada trip.

Only one issue
by YanaAF on 2022/05/21 09:13
I have nothing against this app personally except the playback. You could seriously have the fastest internet out there and it will still take years to play my videos. It’s annoying having to close the app multiple times (even that won’t do anything). That’s it though, the app will save your things especially when it’s connected to your account. ✅
Incredible application

My precious Boxer pictures
by Daysi's Mom on 2022/05/21 01:14
I am so incredibly grateful for Google Photos! I lost my 9 1/2-year-old boxer boy, Buster, on May 5. I have pictures from years and years ago and I was so grateful to be able to easily access them on Google Photos! My heart is still broken into 1 million pieces, but I’m grateful that I can watch old videos and see all pictures readily. It reminds me of just how happy his life was!

Trash app
by violinist10293 on 2022/05/20 21:02
Don’t install this app on your iPhone. It will fill up your gmail space immediately with your photos that you already store on your iCloud. Later it blackmails you to buy space or else… Most people end up paying them monthly fees because you can’t fight them on their own ground. You can try removing photos from the app and the trash folder, and stopping the automated back up, but the space is never coming back!

It has saved so much space on my iPhone phone. The ability of the software to recognize the photos I have in my phone and what has already been saved onto Google photos allowing me to delete it from my own storage saving space for apps and other photos. It identifies people, events, days, and random items and shows you the photos by categories. I can find photos of specific people and by date. Love, love, love and will recommend a thousands times over! An old friend from high school showed it to me and I haven’t turned back since.

Sharing is easy. Mostly, backing up all my supposedly backed up photos for all the past gazillion years has been great. My other backups are okay, but none were as long lasting or thorough. Lots of perks keep me coming back. My Google account is also my most secure and easy to use.

Surprises popup with new views of my pics

Easily the BEST photo storage system.
by Clark711 on 2022/05/20 15:39
If you take more than, say 3 photos, each week, then you need an automatic image backup system. Google Photos does that automatically, so you don&#39;t have to bother. Google Photos will help you make your photos look better - brighter, more pop, color improvement. It also has great organizing and searching capability. You can normally find a photo from three years ago, in less than 10 seconds.
Best photo app

This is the best photo app on the iPhone platform period. Always works, always connects and is very easy to work with.

Bug with archiving photos
by Tweedy05 on 2022/05/19 23:16
I have encountered this frustrating issue that has only recently been occurring. Whenever I try to archive photos, whether it be one or a hundred, they only briefly vanish into the archive folder, but moments later they pop up back in my main photo album! Please fix this! I like google photos and I don’t want to have to switch to another service.

by WhitElliott5 on 2021/01/16 09:34
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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; irreplaceable photos/vids! I can access them from any device, anytime and they make it effortlessly easy to share via social media, messages &amp; 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 ;)
Love it-plain and simple.
by whitreneeXo on 2020/12/19 07:29
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. 😘🤗✌🏽
Rich, vibrant colors and other fun touches
by LauraTheMastermind on 2021/04/28 06:12
I started using Google photos back when I had an LG and was still using XP on my desktop. Colors are richer, more vibrant. I like the feedback message I sometimes get on the bottom of select photos such as “Fix Lighting” or “Order Photo”. It’s useful and the lighting adjust message is always spot on; makes the photo have more depth. The other aspect I like is when I find one of my photos had been “stylized” or “motion” had been added by whoever at Google makes these touches. I don’t mind the feedback and that’s what you get when you agree to allow them to modify. I took a hiatus from Google photos to work with another photo editing tool. When I returned, I found all my pictures neatly archived. Pleasant surprise when I found many I forgot I had. My only negative: back when I was working with windows XP and an LG, Google photos had more filters and other features such as blemish blending and natural looking skin tone enhancers. The best was the awesome selection of frames to chose from. These features have been removed so I need to bridge my photos to another editing app for this. Other than that, Google photos is still my preferred primary editing tool. Thanks for the years of creativity and for thoughtfully archiving all of it.
Storage Dream (maybe?!)...
by KLP/KPGee9 on 2021/02/20 17:18
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” &amp; 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 (&amp; 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{!} &amp; eliminating the need for many (many!) passwords... but then you get the daily “suggestion” to use “auto-&gt;XP”! for backup &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; the future of storage space &amp;/or fun editing stuff) is concerned.
Stores my photos as long as they are not 4K
by Auric Nova on 2018/05/29 00:51
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.

Google, I love 💕 your service, I love everything about Google, photos, videos maps, your customer service helped me fix my pc just a little bit ago, and I took a video of the wonderful job as the result of your help, my son gets Norton I don’t, a little while later that day which was only 2 days fixed and finished, I was in heaven I been sick 14yrs , I turned on my pc and Norton was in there rearranging everything and my Google drive where I kept everything important for years was deleting, I lost my mind it’s been a week or so and I hate them everything is different and my Google drive, 😭😭😭😭😭😭 well I’ve been able to send everything from my phone to the pc and print documents pictures and now when I click on a picture it shows up on my right of the screen really small and I can’t print I can’t do anything and now I’m sick with Covid, I’m going to be 63 and I’m not well anyway, and that achievement you guys helped me with , I never knew how to really use a computer and in no time you made me very very happy 😊 and they took it away in a few minutes, I’m too sick to talk to them I feel like I’m getting hit in the head with a hammer , I miss the happy hour, that’s what it feels like, all that work, I’m sorry I’ll be quiet
Best app ever!
by Yajnesh on 2021/07/15 16:50
This app is amazing! Much better than the original Photo app in many ways. (Not trying to criticize the app, it’s pretty neat too, just stating my opinion) Although all you can do is look at and edit your photos, I still have so many ways how this particular app is really cool too. 1, there are really cool editing options! You can make really cool collages, interesting animations, amazing color pops, splendid cinematic photos, and terrific movies! 2, there are really cool features! It organizes your photos into different things, (Birthdays, Weddings, etc.), you can share everything you create (And by everything, I mean literally EVERYTHING you create on that bad boy) and so many other really cool things! I could spend hours on that app, it’s so cool! 3, Google Photos actually edits your photos into better ones! Here’s an example: I took a picture at a beach and it looked really nice. When I looked at the photo again on Google Photos I realized the app had turned it into a mind blowing photo! It looked like a painting! So to sum this review up, I just want you to know and understand that Google Photos is the most amazing app I have ever seen! So what are you waiting for? Stop sitting on your fannie and download Google Photos today! Like NOW!!
Like a virus on my phone
by 12346744763423 on 2020/11/15 01:16
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.
Going from iphone to Google Photos
by klwalk73 on 2022/02/14 20:54
So far I’m impressed! It was very easy to start but then it totally slowed down which is ok because I had allot of pictures. However, the problem was, that i couldn’t find out why or if i was supposed to use my phone or stay off of it? I started the process at a time where I shouldn’t need my phone just in case but I not knowing what to expect was daunting because I was so excited at how quickly i could see all of my pictures in the app even tho im very limited on space on my phone. I was thinking wow this app is amazing! But i didn’t know if my photos were safe or not and it said processing but didn’t show any physical sign that i could see as to how many pictures were safe and how many to go. But just looking around in the app I’m excited because it looks easy and their are lots of options! I also got the feeling I was in a safe environment with Google. I hope that’s true because there are a lot of neg reviews for Google and I’ve always kept my gmail because it’s always been awesome. I’m ok with my iphone stuff but I still love Samsung!! If the iphone wasn’t a gift I would totally still be using Samsung. I’ve had my iphone 4 yrs now and i haven’t really seen much advantage to having it! Cant wait until all my photos are secure in Google photos!
Hands down best app for keeping & sharing life's most memorable moments
by MeghaMillie on 2017/10/03 03:13
Hands down, The best app for safe-keeping &amp; family sharing of life&#39;s most memorable moments. Super easy to navigate all of the features like saving the all of the important details, like location, time &amp; 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&#39;s milestones with family &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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&#39;s so many important details that I won&#39;t remember while scrapbooking my 2 girls. It simplified the task of going through and sorting my pics &amp; videos I&#39;ve backed up over the years and it&#39;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.
Great app until.... $$$$$$
by Strangermelissa on 2021/03/29 00:07
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.
No flexibility
by StaceyT6 on 2019/12/25 14:05
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.
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 &amp; edit &amp; then go back to this app &amp; 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!
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! 🥰
Secure backup for free
by clwest4 on 2021/01/13 18:39
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!
Google Photos is the only way to go!
by Angel8606 on 2018/08/15 01:00
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 &amp; filtered or maybe, brightened &amp; 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 &amp; 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!
Google Photos is the greatest!!!
by someyahoo on 2021/09/17 09:52
Google Photos is and has been the answer to my photo storage needs. I have told my family, my friends and my business colleagues about Google Photos and it’s benefits, like editing, and sharing, and the photo assistant just to mention a few. I have become a fan of many if not most of the other Google apps. I could go on but Google is doing such a great Historic service with the apps like Google Photos. I am sold and I will follow, use and support Google in what ever endeavors it pursues. Keep up the good work and keep the tweaks and improvements coming. History will remember and identify Google’s contribution to preserving History including social and political trends, including those that are outside the political or social mainstream. History is important and Google has the ability to remember and follow the trends, even if at the moment they seem unacceptable. I do not support the wholesale removal of posts that are considered political or that are deemed to be outside the mainstream such as with food like saturated fat being good or bad or one diet being healthier than another or the use of certain products like medications or vitamins.
love it
by Fozzy Bearr<3 on 2020/07/03 21:31
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!
Be careful what you upload and store!!
by dmgreenw on 2019/11/21 22:21
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
by 16/50 on 2019/02/19 14:02
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.
This app is a parasite
by drake_cantype whatev he want on 2021/09/13 03:45
PLEASE make it obvious how to prevent Google Photos from accessing your iCloud photos. It is a parasite that is adding all of my photos to my Drive storage even though I don’t use it and deleted it a long time ago. I don’t want the storage on my phone taken up on my Google Drive as well. It means I only have 2 GB that can be used for Slides, Docs, and files, since you get 15 for free. This is a much bigger problem than it should be, since I CANNOT get Google Photos to stop syncing my iPhone photos to my Drive. It is literally preventing me from creating Slides and Docs since it’s taking up 13 GB from my phone and taxing that on my Drive as well. I turned syncing off and deleted the app again yet it is still saying that Google Photos is taking up 13 GB of my 15 GB storage on my Drive. I can’t just remove all of my photos on there because it would then delete the photo I have on my iPhone. This is even more infuriating since I don’t even use Google Photos. I deleted it a long time ago and then I go to edit a Google Slide and it says that i can’t because my storage is full. All taken up by an app I don’t even use, and something that should only take up iCloud storage, NOT Google Drive. It is using my iPhone photos to prevent me from using Slides and Docs. This is terrible. I’ll delete my review if this is resolved.
I like it, BUT...
by adsitimray on 2017/09/20 13:16
I like Google Photos, but I wish their was an option under the &#34;EDIT&#34; 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&#39;s phone, since I don&#39;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 &#34;ME&#34;, I wouldn&#39;t want him clicking on the tab and see photos of his mother that he shouldn&#39;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&#39;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!
Worst app ever
by maggie_doyle on 2022/01/14 17:38
I wanted to load on the photos on my phone so I could free up space, but the limit on what’s free is really small and the space is shared with your email so it started to tell me that my email was full and I wasn’t gonna receive emails anymore. Obviously that’s the dumbest thing ever so I bought a 2 TB hard drive and decided to store my extra photos that way, because the concept of paying for space in the “cloud” is honestly ridiculous imo. But the reason that I even am taking the time to write this review is because when I then went to delete the photos from google photos it didn’t give me the option to do so without also deleting them from my phone. So as far as I’m aware there permanently on Google and if I want to delete them off of Google I also delete them from my phone. There may be a way around the but I didn’t do too much digging. Also it divides all the photos by day so if you want to highlight all of your photos to delete a big chunk at a time you can’t. There’s so many things that are just so painfully dumb about this app that I had to write this review which isn’t something that I normally do. But unless you love manually deleting emails 100 at a time (there were 12,000 in my inbox) and having Google photos permanently linked to your Apple photos, or you just absolutely love paying for storage don’t waste your time and energy.
10/10 Recommend!
by EIA101 on 2019/09/15 02:53
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!
Wish All Assistants Were This Good!
by Goldy121 on 2020/04/04 01:47
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!
Best thing for my cloud storage
by s2019nw on 2020/07/26 15:15
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&#39;s made. I love it&#39;s powerful search function and face recognition which can track same person all the way to his life time. I love it&#39;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!
Hate this stupid app
by lo_well on 2020/12/22 01:56
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!!!
Finally! Google, helping to create peace of mind when I run out of storage for my photos!
by Rockdez on 2018/04/05 16:51
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! :)
Hey
by hhskdjsnsnsjzjsnwbzjkznwbsoz on 2020/10/26 02:11
I don’t know what I have ever done to deserve this but I don’t feel like it’s correct bc I’ve always tried to be kind and good to those around me. I want to find my true love. I have tried so hard to teach myself patience in chaos, generosity for those in need and faith in our creator. My journey has been long, tragic and at times down right impossible but I still push thru because I know I have a purpose in this life. Whether that be to pick up a stranger walking down the interstate, help someone who is having a rough day by listening to them talk or just being somewhere at the right time to effect a small task so greater things can happen, I believe! I believe that God has always walked right beside me and I am so proud of what he has helped me to become. I am strong! I am able to face my fears! I am able to show generosity to those who don’t necessarily know they need it and definitely don’t think they deserve it. It’s very hard at times and occasionally I fall and scrape my shin but I get back up. There is so much bad in the world, putting good back into it can only improve this world and the beautiful hurting souls that inhabit it.
Easy storage, fun features
by jamaicangel00 on 2019/03/27 03:09
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 🙂
Excellent for photos, Videos are a STRUGGLE
by iPad3 in Mich on 2018/01/14 18:09
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 &#34;upload in background&#34; 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&#39;t know if Google Drive and Google Photos &#34;play nice&#34; with one another.
I love google photos
by Brother Gollum on 2020/01/16 00:23
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&#39;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&#39;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.
Easy to organize but not to print or save
by Betspa on 2022/03/15 21:06
Very easy to take photos and put into albums. Used to put into folders but then only one picture per folder. With albums the same picture can be put into several albums! I only gave 3 stars bc I cannot print from google photos directly. I still haven’t figured it out! Google photos no longer puts photos into google drive AND google photos when taken as it once did I was told. I want the double back up. I cannot figure out how to remove Microsoft photos (where some, not all, pictures go) (the app that comes w iPhones). My goal is to have the ability on PC to get to google photos not Microsoft photos. Cannot find google photos in file explorer. Any help would be EXTREMELY Appreciated! I have been searching and trying for months. Thank you. Would like to have google photos in file explorer. I also would like to know how to put email pictures into google photos. I can download but then what? I can’t just click on download and hold the picture and move to google photos, only Microsoft photos. Why is this the same review? This would skew the results of the survey/review. Shame on you google photos!
Yes it rad! It’s better than face book for family photos and being able for all to use
by Jason Bryant 503 on 2018/11/29 13:23
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 😊😉😎
Ehhhhh......read before you download
by Scooby2121 on 2021/03/22 05:43
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 it BUT ...
by Julz xo on 2020/12/31 07:02
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.
Can’t get rid of unneeded photos even though there’s a delete option, not organized, uses my storage
by azsedcgyhnjo on 2018/10/21 04:14
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.
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.
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.
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 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
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.
Issue with google photos
by Cheribeliber on 2021/01/28 09:04
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.
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!!!
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!
Can NOT go Back to Life Before Google Photos
by PJ Jackson13 on 2019/11/27 11:36
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😀🙌👍

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)
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&#39;ll like it. Promise.
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!
Batch-Archive Only? How About Batch-Deleting?
by smmrsvr on 2021/11/25 18:27
Can’t beat the price, and the fact that they’ll hardly go out of business like PhotoBucket did — and my old photos with it. Now I would like Google Photos to give me the option to either batch-archive or batch-delete on the same screen when they remind me of the memes and document snapshots I have in storage. That’s the user-intuitive way. They want me to batch-archive so that’s what they offer, and I end up storing a lot of junk since I have both WhatsApp and GP set to sync with my phone storage app (I want to keep the photos my family sends, but with it come memes, viral videos etc). I don’t have the time at the end of the day to go through both storage apps deleting the junk. Another thing is they didn’t keep up to date with the news when they suggested an album to be titled “Trip USA-Canada” in Aug’21 just bc we took pictures in the American boat in Niagara Falls. Canada’s borders were closed to Americans due to the pandemic; and the only photos of Canada I had were taken from the boat looking up to the buildings right on the borders—by all measures a stretch to call it a Canada trip.
