Great app love the free storage. Wish there was a better way to backup from ICloud rather then through the phone. Uses up a lot of storage and bandwidth even if on Wifi still takes a long time to pull from ICloud to phone then up to Google Photos. Would be nice if Google Photos could retrieve the photos directly from iCloud and transfer across the web instead of using the phone as an intermediary device.
My Review
by autumnliz123 on 2019/11/11 22:47
the best app for people who take a lot of photos and don’t have space on their phone. i save everything to google photos and delete my camera roll this is the best way to keep all of your photos and have room for extra apps and things on your phone!! 🤍🤍 totally 10/10 would recommend to anyone
Great
by Alessandracan2 on 2019/11/11 22:26
It’s a great app to storage photos and videos. I just wish it was easier to find photos dated from an early time that you just added easier.

I briefly used an android and fell in love with is app. After going back to an iPhone i immediately downloaded it. This app is constantly making me small and almost cray at the joyful well planned memories. I don’t even use the app on the iPhone that’s for photos

Somehow, the app deleted one of my photos that I didn't want to delete. Furthermore, there are no photos in the trash, so I can't recover it. Unacceptable

It’s too confusing
by Correlator's Experience on 2019/11/11 10:13
Where is my last photo I took? Or where is the last screenshot I just created? The navigation of the photos don’t help me much in real time cause I see it’s gonna take me a hot minute to figure out how the interface sorts and dates it all. Thanks for you trying to sort my photos I just want to have the Consoul to the control panel of how I want to find my photos. It makes me feel snooped up on. It irritates me when I can’t find my most recent pics quickly and easily.

by Tubbs_1051 on 2019/11/11 06:11
Once you start scrolling down it loads and then unloads the pictures after a certain point which stops you from going any further. Otherwise it’s fine.

by AKay.. on 2019/11/11 05:56
Never had any issues, still trying to find my way around it completely to utilize every aspect of it, sharing, privacy,etc but for the most part, way better than paying for storage more storage on the cloud ea month.

Works great ! Only thing : pictures take a while to back up
Video playback is terrible
by GatorNation64 on 2019/11/11 05:48
I have an unlimited storage plan so videos are stored at original resolution. However the quality of video playback is complete trash. Videos shot in 4K look like they are 480p. A company that has the bandwidth to support 4K videos on YouTube can definitely fix this if they want. In the meantime I’m packing up and moving to OneDrive. Microsoft is superior in every way.
Google photos your the best.

Google Photos is the Greatest Of All Time
by Hoss_DeRoest on 2019/11/11 04:31
I’ve use Dropbox, iCloud, OneDrive, and so many other digital clouds to store pictures information etc. Google Photos was recently recommended to me, and I’m sold. It uploaded my 11k photos and 200 videos faster than any others by at least 4X the speed. In addition to that, the organization it enables you to have while all the cool collage and video features is beyond better than other apps or programs.

Backup your files, photos and videos!
by KingYashMusic on 2019/11/11 03:02
I save so much space on my outer using this service. I am able to access word documents, excel sheets and PowerPoints from my phone while at work. I enjoy looking back at photo I’ve saved over time from older devices. It’s been a pleasure using this device. It’s important to set privacy settings to ensure files you don’t want to be seen is hidden. Using this software allows you to share your files to people in your contacts but the optimizations renders better for other google drive users. I am slowly gauging my other friends and fan support to create a gmail account to use google drive and google photos better.

Phenomenal
by MoltenWater on 2017/10/27 05:59
This is the first review for an app I have ever wrote in my 9 years of using Apple products from iPhones to iPods. Genuinely this is the absolute BEST solution to modern photo issues on mobile devices to date. I have all my photos downloaded to my phone, and they all download to my other devices as well. When I delete it on one device it does it on the other too. All my photos are fully HD and even Live Photo’s show up as videos/gifs. When the hopefully not inevitable day comes and I break my phone, I will never have to worry that I lost my photos, the biggest fear for first world citizens of the world nowadays, because there will always be a copy saved somewhere. On top of the convenience of this app, with it not only being full compatible with everything, but just overall simple and easy to use. It completely devours it’s competition due to its unlimited storage and functionality. Never again will I receive the obnoxious notification that my 5gb iCloud storage is almost full on a phone that has 128gb. With APPLE telling me that I have to PAY for more storage that is NOT even UNLIMITED and not nearly as compatible across non-Apple devices as google photos. Google has always been the go-to for tools online, and they outdid themselves on this one. Hands down to them. 5/5.
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.
New Favorite Storage App!!!
by Fdenneyy on 2018/09/08 10:39
I am constantly taking pictures everywhere I go of everything I see. I also have a terrible habit of hoarding screen shots. I use to have to connect my phone to my laptop just so I could clear up space. Which then took up a lot of space on my laptop. Then I would spend so much time & money going through my pictures deciding which to delete and which to print off. I’ve tried many other online storage websites but they usually have a limit for the free account or they will delete your photos if you don’t log in often enough. This app not only makes uploading easy, it also hardly takes up any storage space on your phone, the upload is quick, it ask if you want to clear your phone storage once upload is complete, you can still access ALL of your photos by simply opening the app, you can access and upload your computer photos to your account easily, it has awesome tools you can utilize(collage, movie, gif, filters, etc), & if you’re like me you’ll love that you can still organize everything into albums!! Oh and did I mention it’s FREE unlimited storage with high definition?! Just finished uploading 6,038 photos/videos from my laptop & 949 photos/videos from my phone!! Download this app! You won’t be disappointed!! ♥️😍

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.
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!
10/10 Recommend!

i got this app as a way to store photos and make albums, and it has not let me down. i can finally clear up space on my phone for other things while having all my photos in an easily accessible app. it’s very user-friendly. i love how it has gave recognition and makes mini albums for each person! also, you can make your own albums and share them by simply copying a link. google photos is linked to your gmail so you can access pictures and videos anywhere you’re signed in! another benefit is with imessage. you can easily attach photos that are not on your device just by clicking the google photos icon and selecting your images. another amazing feature is that the app recognizes pictures with a lot of writing. when syncing your camera roll to google photos, the app takes the pictures with writing/typing (like a report for school, old notes, etc.) and gives you an option to clear them from your phone, as you probably don’t need them anymore and they’re classified as junk. google photos is an amazing app. it gives you options to create new albums, prints, movies, collages, and animations. this app is a must-have!
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.
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 "EDIT" tab, where I could add text or be able to write on the actual photo and be able to pick different colors, fonts, size of fonts and also underline, bold or put the text in italics. Also, my email is also linked to my son's phone, since I don't want to set him up with his own email account, until he gets a little bit older, that means that the Google Photo app is also linked to his phone, since he takes photos too. It would be nice to have an option to put a password protection on the albums that photos of each person is under. For example, if the album is labeled "ME", I wouldn't want him clicking on the tab and see photos of his mother that he shouldn't be looking at and scar him for life. Lol! Also, it would even come in handy when parents let their children play on their phone and they stumble upon photos that their parents didn't want them to see. Since my son also takes photos, one other idea that I had would be that anytime he takes photos and Google Photos downloads them, that the photos would be categorized by the device it was downloaded from, but you would still be able to organize the photos into albums later. Thank you!
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! :)
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 "upload in background" setting is not available to me so the app runs in the foreground. I had to upgrade storage size at Google -- for a fee -- because I wanted to keep original resolution and now I am curios about how Google Drive may be useful but don't know if Google Drive and Google Photos "play nice" with one another.
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.
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.
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 😊😉😎
Very good
by DiDeTu on 2018/12/15 13:26
Very nice photo storage app, easy to use, and offer many options of pictures layout and searching. Ive got it a month ago, and between my iPhone and the windows google photos app I'm still finding new things I can do. But one thing I cannot do (or maybe I didn't discover it yet) is to check what pictures belong to an album. The pictures' description doesn't show it. All my 25,000, and counting, pictures are organized in albums. If I don't place my photos in albums every time I take them, there's no way I can find out which picture was last that I placed into an album. I used Flickr before and it was very easy to check this, not only from the description (that shows you exactly if a picture belongs to an album or not, sometimes I discovered I had pictures belonging to 2 albums so I removed it from one of them), but when you take new pictures, they are placed, by default, into an album named "auto upload", so that you know exactly what pictures do not belong to any album. I wish Google had this feature.....at least let us know from the description. Otherwise, very happy with 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!
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.
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.
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'll like it. Promise.
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)
Solid photo app
by Shurman292 on 2018/04/23 22:12
I’ve been using google photos for over two years now and it has been an innovative, reliable way to backup photos and videos. The search feature is magic. There’s no other way to describe it. I searched for “headset” and a picture from five years ago popped up with me in the front seat of a small airplane with a headset on...it also somehow correctly recognizes people from birth to adulthood. I don’t know about you, but I look nothing like I did when I was two years old. There are a couple improvements I would suggest though. First, editing photos could be significantly more robust. It currently has all the basic editing features you would find in most default phone photo apps. Second, a more clear, innovative organization method would be very handy. As it stands, I have tens (maybe hundreds) of thousands of photos all arrayed in a vertical flow with the months/years denoted along the side. Perhaps the option to automatically organize/rearrange into (gasp) folders by year, event type (wedding, vacation, etc) or person and other categories. Just a thought.
Features break over time + no support
by RawwrBag on 2018/10/31 17:45
I’ve used Google Photos since launch. It works fine at first but as the amount of metadata builds up, features start to break. First it was “sharing in progress; keep app open to finish” that would last for days at a time despite it appearing to complete immediately. Then one day it just stopped syncing edits, at all. Next it started failing to show new photos that had been downloaded locally and not yet uploaded. Around this time it also started uploading duplicates of things. At some point during all of this, assistant creations began failing to save. They would show up again every time I opened the app. Shortly after, it stopped showing new assistant suggestions and only the old “stuck” ones that I couldn’t clear or save. Somewhere along the way, it halved the number of photos it was tracking for backup from 3,000 to 1,500 without me deleting anything locally or freeing up space. Reinstalling the app fixes some but not all of these issues, and only for awhile. Buyer beware. You’ll get hooked by all the cool features and then it’ll start to fall over. Also, there is absolutely no support whatsoever, which is sad because I actually bought extra storage for the service. I’m a paying customer and there is literally no way to contact Google about any of my issues.
Great but VERY SLOW
by LilGohan on 2018/11/29 00:20
I cannot think of a more useful app like this day to day. I have a 64GB iphone and my friends always flex on me because they have 256 GB or whatever. Now i flex on them because i have UNLIMITED STORAGE!!! I can truly say this app is a miracle worker, because otherwise, I would have to upload my photos to icloud where my ENTIRE family could see, but now there is this. The app is great but it is VERY slow. I have about 3000 photos to back up, and I expected it would take maybe 1-2 days. I even tried to not take anymore photos until it backed up fully so I don’t overload it or anything. Boy was I wrong, it has been 2 WEEKS!! AND I STILL HAVE 300 photos to back up. For some reason, the number keeps glitching, even though I’m not taking photos, the number sometimes keeps going up. One day I’m down to only a 150 photos to back up, a minute later, I have 291 photos to back up. I understand it may just me my slow phone, but this should be compatible with all users. I decided to upgrade just for this reason, and if it doesn’t work then, I will give it a 3 star rating, if it works, I will change my rating to a 5! Thanks Google!!!
Great Over 50 App
by Kit-Kat Tunes on 2018/04/22 15:11
Generation X and Baby Boomers have some say in this World of Technology! Typically we purchase the iPhone with less memory space available because let’s face it, “we’re not that techie”. What we fail to realize we’re going through that stage of life with the plastic pull-out wallet photo album our grandmothers use to whip out on everyone, strangers on public transit included. The only difference, our whip-out photo album is on our cell phones. Suddenly you realize with all those photos and videos of the family, and your memory capacity notifications have you wishing you had bought the phone with more memory! THANK YOU GOOGLE PHOTO APP! You have saved the day! I can store my plastic photo flip-out album now on my Google Photos and have memory to spare! The navigation on the app is so simple for all us “not so techie” 50+ people. The document archive is a great feature too. No more searching through photos for those paid bill screenshots. I also love the photo editing suggestions, considering I’m not a professional photographer. This App is a must for all 50+!
Collages are easy; make them better
by Judy Kotar on 2018/10/07 06:46
I'm preparing educational collages of many species of trees: full height, and closeups of leaves/needles, flowers/fruits or cones. Examples are larch, basswood, katsura. I choose the same 3 photos or 4 photos repeatedly in hopes of getting the specific arrangement I want. If there are 3 views, I want the full height of the tree to be the full height of the collage. Sometimes the app won't give me that. I wish I could see a set of diagrams. Suppose I select a diagram with 3 vacancies. I want you to label them first, second, third. The first photo I select goes in position #1, then #2, etc. If I want the biggest picture verticle on the left side, all I have to do is choose the right diagram, note the number in the tall box, and tap the tall tree when I get to that number. I think it's logical to name the biggest box #1. I'm not asking for ability to select the dimensions of the boxes; I like what you have now. I'm not asking for new diagrams; you already offer a full set with 2, 3, or 4 photos. If someone selects more than four photos, they should accept whatever arrangements the app currently offers. The permutations & combinations are too numerous.
Serves it purpose
by TLesiak on 2018/12/04 16:52
I ran out of space in my iCloud and had to find something to back up my photos. I use Google for most everything else so it made sense to use it for photos. I like that you can access the photos, along with all the other Google products, while logged into my google account. It automatically uploads pictures I’ve taken onto my phone and when I need to free up space on my phone I can choose that option in google photos. It’ll send all of the pictures uploaded to the deleted file on my phone. There are a lot of photo products out there that have an option to upload photos directly from Google Photos like Shutterfly or even choosing pictures to have printed at your local Walgreens. The only complaint is that I wish it didn’t take so long to load the pictures and when you first click on the photos, it’s a bit pixelated so it takes a while to clear up. Although, it does hold a lot of pictures for free so I’d rather it continue to be free than those complaints be corrected and pay a fee for faster/more storage.
Does the work for me
by Ditjk on 2019/03/12 15:43
My family and I started using Google photos as a way for us to share all the pictures we capture when we’re together and soon realized it’s a great way to share photos from when we’re apart as well. I love how easy it is to share photos and albums. Works really well with my iPhone and allows me to keep my storage space on my phone freed up for more photos! Another cool advantage to this photo sharing platform is the stylized photos and movies it randomly makes and suggests. I only wish I knew how to make a stylized photo or action photo on my own. Google photos allows you to save and search by faces and places. This includes even searching for your dog! It’s a little scary how it makes a movie of “They grow up so fast” which is a compilation of photos of my baby from infancy to toddlerhood - how does it know it’s the same kid? Incredible and freaky. In summary; I recommend Google photo to everyone that’s looking for an app to save and store photos. It’s incredibly simple to use and does the work for you.
The BEST. It does all the hard work for me
by Twestaz on 2018/09/24 00:26
Im adding tis later, it also does auto backups, allows you to decide what to take off the device, but keeps it safe in the cloud. Awesome..i just keep smiling —————— The best thing about this app, Google Photos, is that it does complicated things, Things I could figure out but would struggle with and take time, it makes albums, collages, searches for all pics of an individual, etc and offers it for my approval. Truly makes me look smart when I give them as gifts to my family. LOL truly it does make it so easy to group photos, Mix them around in a different format, do albums targeted to different people all with the Ease of touching the screen. ..... And of course ,the fact that it on its own . Goes out and find a way to mix up the Photos, taking your photos and turning them into a video is just awesome. And of course I review everything before it’s finalized so if I don’t like something I just do it again or have them do it again. Again,Thank you so much google developers. You’re the best!
Better than Apple Photos
by Lazziza on 2019/02/06 21:50
I am wondering why I never utilized this app BEFORE now? I love that it connects photos from my iPad and my iPhone IMMEDIATELY... unlike Apple. In real-time photos from my iPad, iPhone and MAC are all uploaded seamlessly without me ever thinking about it. Apple products can be connected to WiFi and not operate any where near that efficiently. Not to mention the fact that I need to pay out-of-pocket for iCloud storage to protect my precious photos on their devices. For years I’ve panicked if my photos weren’t backed up, hoping nothing would happen to my device until I could afford to pay for my cloud fees again. Now I never have to worry about that ever since Google has tons of storage! Google has me covered for FREE too! & *IF* it can get any better, every time I open the app there are new stylized pics, collages, and animated photos that Google has created for me! It makes my job easier and preserves memories in ways I may have never thought twice about. I highly recommend this app, and I consider it a MUST HAVE.
Amazing
by gator101gator on 2018/10/13 16:31
If you just use the “High Quality” upload size setting, you literally get storage for unlimited amounts of photos. And by unlimited, I really mean unlimited. I currently have over 5000 photos in storage and I’m constantly adding more with 0 downsides. Plus, being able to access your photos (as well as being able to download them) from basically ANY device that can access the internet is a huge benefit! Couldn’t recommend this enough for anyone that either has a ton of photos and videos and just want a backup for all of them and/or have storage capacity issues on their devices due to the amount of photos stored on it. All you have to do is have a Google account (i.e. have a Gmail account), log in to Google Photos, download the photos to it, and after it’s done backing up all your photos, you can then delete them all from your device and still keep all those photos and videos as well as be able to access them from basically anywhere! Amazing app and cant recommend enough!
Great App
by Audioxnant on 2019/03/25 20:13
I just hope Google don’t hold my life in pictures as some kind of ransom, later on down the track. Google can be bought and sold right? Along with all my data. Putting faith in a company like this is a huge deal but they are not a country. They have no governing body that is connected to the people so... when you hand over your life in pictures, your facial details and all of your friends faces, places and times are essentially owned. There will be AI that will find patterns in people’s experiences gathered from this data that will be used to manipulate people in ways that we can’t imagine and probably won’t notice. And I know all this and yet the app makes it easier for me to enjoy the thousands of pictures that I’ve taken in my life. It uses algorithms to sort and make use out of all these captured moments. It’s really wonderful. So google you can have my pictures and data and the ability to manipulate me in some kind of emotional bliss, in exchange for this awesome service! Game-changer.
Great with caveats
by kiwiyamagushi on 2018/09/05 18:10
The user experience in general is pretty straightforward and useful. Photos automatically get updated into google pictures and then they have a feature that helps delete photos on our phone. Great. I believe I could even teach my mom this, which is saying a lot. This is where they fall flat, all the suggestions with collages and animations cover the useful feature of cleaning up photos. It just confuses some users (for example, older adults) and makes them hesitant to press anything and turns them off from using it. Perhaps they should move that as an extra setting and not part of the mAjor automatic experience. Second, the shared album is separate from albums which also confuses older users. I think if they could clean up the “bells and whistles” they would reach a broader audience, but also if they have a broader audience current users would probably be more active since then they could really take advantage of shared photos. The logos without text can also be confusing for some users. So overall really great concept, but the user experience can be fine tuned to really be easy to use.
Fantastic way to liberate your iPhone
by publicrick on 2018/10/08 00:56
No room for the latest iOS update? You probably are like a certain friend of mine who takes pictures of everything and texts pics of every meal she eats when traveling to new places. Your photos are great, but they are hiding out in text AND photo storage. Why do you need them in both places? In fact, with this app you don’t need them on your phone at all! If you are cool with Google knowing almost everything about you, which it probably already does, then have no fear! This will solve your storage problem and make room for stuff you need on the phone. Set-up takes a while if you have multi-gigs of photos. Let it do its job and follow the Assistant’s guidance. Once done, install the latest iOS to see what you’ve been missing. One shortcoming I haven’t found an easy workaround for: if you are already in a text or mail and want to send an older picture, it’s not easy to browse through your photo library in Google from within the mail app.
Surprised how good yet not generally known by others
by TCMark on 2018/09/08 05:12
This app pretty much does it all, as the best backup app I’ve found and it’s creative Assistant. I’ve yet to run out of backup space and I have a ton of photos and videos. I don’t know how or why that works so well, but why pay for online backup space if you can use Google Photos? The Assistant suggests ready-made albums, makes movies, creates stylized copies of some of your beat shots, and even brings back memories from years past to see again. About the only thing I don’t like is how fast it backs up your photos if you leave that feature turned on. So if you haven’t had time to delete some of the photos you don’t want to keep in your phone’s Photos folder, Google Photos will have already backed them up. Then it’s a little cumbersome to synchronize what you want to save. It also backs up your media on multiple devices, which is very handy because you can view all of those photos and videos in one place. This is definitely a sleeper 5-Star app!
Review update 2019, don’t get rid of this app
by Itzazme on 2019/07/27 16:47
I don't know what I would do with out this app! I have been using google photos for over 12 years. (That's on three children and 10+ bdays a year.) In the beginning I uploaded my photos that I wanted to keep. So I did miss a lot of photos not uploading when I lost a phone, but ever since they started automatically uploading photos from my phone, if (when) my phone went bad, I didn't have to worry because my memories were already in google photos! Even better, now that you can give google photos permission to delete already uploaded photos, my phone has tons of memory. Plus my pics quality are good enough, I have been able to get some of my photos printed onto 16x20 canvases too. I can say so much. But I'll end with forget iCloud or Dropbox, why would you use anything else while Google offers Google Photos and so much more with goodie Drive? Literally I love it, I depend on google way to much to help me keep storage of all my data.
Brilliant!
by Larsenv on 2017/09/17 16:09
Google did an outstanding job at making a service where you can back up as many photos as you want and share them with your friends and family. In fact, this is the best service I've seen to do the job! Even though the picture quality isn't what it originally was, the photos are still in high quality. You can use the backup & sync app on your computer to sync your whole Photos library to Google Photos, which I've done and works well. I saved a ton of space on my iPad by syncing everything to Google Photos via this app, so if you're running low on storage this is an app that can save you. The awesomeness doesn't stop there! You can comment on photos, add locations, and best of all - you can use keywords to search pictures in your whole library! So if you want to find pictures of your dog in your library, you just search "dog" and a bunch of dog pictures magically come up! No tagging is required! Of course it's not perfect, but I've tested it with different keywords and it's still well done. One more thing, you can easily tag images by faces. Just enter the person's name and it'll automatically associate all pictures with them! The face detection is really good, and still finds photos with the same face if a kid is maturing. This service is a masterpiece, and it's a safe place to store all your photos. They pictures are automatically marked private unless you share them, so you don't have to worry about privacy concerns. Google Photos is a must-have app.
Excellent App, but Some Improvements are Needed
by samelnicomposer on 2017/12/11 18:00
I like how easily Google Photos backs up my photos from many devices, organizes them by person (and pet), gives suggestions for changes and archival, and for making photo books! There are two improvements that it could really use, though: 1) The movies are really bland and boring, especially when compared to the iOS Photos app. It’s just a basic slideshow and the music cuts off suddenly at the end. Automatic effects, panning, and music that at least fades out would be excellent. 2) More feedback for grouping people and pets. Much like how facebook works, being able to tap a face that hasn’t been identified and identifying it would be so helpful. It would help Google learn what faces it has trouble recognizing and make sorting the photos even better. Other than that, this app is absolutely incredible. It has a clean, easy layout and the free storage is perfect for everyday use. I would love to see this technology used with a digital picture frame to display photos because of how well it sorts and edits them.
let’s put a lock on it
by garrettpaulmoore on 2018/11/18 03:21
Seriously, the app is great and continues to store and store my pictures and videos and has for several years without any issues. One thing I would love to see in the very very near future are some locking features. Initially, a password/passcode that can be turned on to enter the app itself. And then the ability to lock specific albums without having to go through and hand select single items to archive them. The archive works great but if I want to keep multiple item together for easy access, it makes more sense for me to keep them in an album together, which is easily accessible to anyone with access to the app. If we could make the app and also the albums themselves password sensitive, this would change up the game for Google Photos. Also, facial recognition and face grouping have not been working lately on one of my accounts but work fine on another account. Weird. Love the app. Thanks for storing all my junk for so long. GooPho, you’re the GOAT
Love it. But one problem
by kittenzmeoww on 2019/09/02 05:02
I’ve been reading on a bunch of forums that so many people are having the same problem as what I’m having right now. It stopped backing up when it got to my videos. I’ve done EVERYTHING I’ve seen online to fix it. I’ve done everything that a google one personnel has told me to do. I even got my case sent to a higher management/tech person/people and I did what they asked me to do as well and nothing has worked. Out of the blue yesterday I realized that my videos are backing up maybe 5-10 a day. And I still have nearly 1500 videos left so that’s literally going to take me MONTHS to get these finished backing up and quite frankly, I’m over it. I need to get everything off of my phone so I can reset it and start over. And I refuse to lose these photos because they’re of my daughter growing up. So that is literally my only problem with this app. You guys need to fix the bug that causes the backup process to freeze. And apparently this has been happening for a year or so, maybe more. So please, PLEASE! Fix this problem!!!
Absolutely Essential!
by acapretto on 2018/06/29 13:01
Auto back-ups provide peace of mind, but that is just the beginning of why google photos is awesome. The ability to quickly organize photos into albums and seconds makes finding photos later easy. Sharing photos with friends is also amazingly fast. The auto assistant often makes great animations and videos from my photos, but I also have the ability to make my own custom animations and videos and the tools are intuitive and simple to use. Ability to find photos by searching for both thing and people is also quite impressive. My wife and I are also able to sync up our photos into a common space so that after any event pictures can be found organized by date and time. I also love that I have access to every photo I have ever taken because I have uploaded all the photos to Google Photos. I recommend it to everyone I know because I love pictures and this is the best tool to Save, share, and edit quickly photos and videos.
So many issues
by EBee1999 on 2018/08/05 23:17
I'm very frustrated with this app because I downloaded it to help me with the storage issues on my phone, but it's giving me separate issues of its own! The app says "backup complete" at the top of the page, but many of my pictures still have the white arrows going in circular motion. When I access google photos on the desktop, those items do not show up. I spent hours looking it up in forums and trying to fix it based on all the recommendations in forums, but nothing is helping. Only when I manually select the items and click "back up" do the arrows disappear, and it is irrational for me to sit there for hours selecting the items one by one when the app is supposed to do this automatically! On top of that, the app does not back up my videos. I really wanted this app to be worth it and to work for me and I'm very disappointed that it's not. Now I have to seek another solution and waste even more time worrying about this. At this point I'm not even sure if I should trust this app or continue using it, and I would not recommend it to friends with the issues I've been having! Save your energy and don't get this app!! -To Google: if I am contacted and the issues are fixed then I will change the review ..
Photo storage as it should be
by alanwill on 2019/07/16 02:42
I love this app for a couple reasons. 1) the Auto Awesome recommendations made my the assistant are brilliant. They take what is otherwise an ordinary picture and enhance it to be something much more special. They give life to pictures. No other service does this and for free. 2) the search capabilities. I have 10s of thousands of pictures and searching through them could be a nightmare until now. Google Photos categorizes your photos based on location and the subject of the photograph itself. It's accuracy in being able to detect the subject is rather uncanny. I can now search my pictures far easier than before. 3) I know I said only 2 reasons but this one is important too. Free! You can upload your pics for free! Enough said. Some improvements I would like to see would be an option to delete the originals once they have been successfully backed up. NB: I do not work for or am in anyway affiliated with google. Just a regular consumer of its products.
A beautiful way to keep life in your pocket
by Oxikane on 2018/05/18 05:43
I have used this app for 5 years to backup all of my photos and videos. It does so automatically, straight from your library, without ever getting in your way. The app has saved nearly every picture and video I’ve taken in that time. It just so happens that 5 years ago is around the time I met my wife. 4 years ago is when my first child was born. This means that every picture or video of my wife and my kids, all of the firsts and lasts and everything in between, they’re all here. There are so many beautiful memories here that I can hold onto forever because of this app. I love scrolling through the years and months and just watching life’s story. The app is designed in a way that makes this easy and puts a strong emphasis on your media, rather than clutter. It even helps you clear clutter such as unimportant screenshots, document images, and even blurry or duplicate photos, so that you can focus on the special things. The Assistant that is built into the app makes everything so convenient. It has created so many amazing movies, collages, and animations for me (without me even prompting it to) that perfectly capture the little wonders of life. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have all of the things Google Photos has captured for me. Half of the time I didn’t even know it was doing it, but I’m so grateful that it did. If you’re not already using it, you should start now. You’ll thank me in 5 years.
Amazing
by Zerg. on 2018/03/22 20:27
I have known google photos for awhile and recently PhotoScan. My hesitation to download it was totally relieved when my son visited me this holiday. Took old pictures with photoscan and send me back all of it. He send his album and now we have shared photoscan album. I'm over 70 year old and have old pictures colored and black and white. It's amazing to photo scan my wedding picture almost 50 years, old black and white. With the editing features, it transform it to a modern looking,clean brighter,pleasant looking,colored copy. I did 3 kinds of edited pics. For comparison. I'm very very amazed and delighted how google was able to do this. I'm very sure I'll be very proud to show this to all my friend in my forthcoming, 50th Wedding anniversary. Now l am looking for more antique picture to process nd it's keeping me busy. Thanks GOOGLE. AMAZING. 5 stars all the way. Improvements is continuous. Recently sending me reminders of things that happened a year ago. I'll try to order Album for my Anniversary pictures.
Slow and messing up original folders
by Kizombera ro on 2019/05/18 23:48
I had the dream that when I first click on free up soace the google pic appwill start transfering all my pics, of course keeping my original organizing pic in existing folders. To my disdain l am trying to make this app since more than a week and so far only 350 out ofmyover 4000 pics were transfered, and all done under a hidden criteria of course. I am unable to find my pics. I do not lnow where and how are my pics now classified, why some older are not taken versus some newer amd so forth. I am not an IT specialist but l assume that if l am reading some directions l have a good capacity to follow those directions. In the user "non friendly" directions found on google help l read press free up space than remove. Second step/ remove never shows up on my poor Iphone 6. I unable to uograde the IOS due to low storage and this one is impossible to be done qoth google pic app. Too sad! I am offered 15 GB but lam unable to take advantage and use it! Help!
Love this app!
by Lizwedgewood on 2018/05/12 01:53
My phone was running out of space. I was constantly having to delete pictures so I could take new ones of my kids. Thankfully, my SIL told me about this app. I was able to transfer my 4,000+ pictures to the app in about 24 hrs. It took so long because I had so many to transfer at one time. I had to keep going in to check and manually transfer some here and there. But it was worth it. Once they were all successfully transferred, I was able to delete the pictures off my phone. The used space on my from when we 16 GB to barely 9 GB!! Now I don’t have to worry at all about how many pictures/videos I have or if I need to delete some to be able capture priceless moments of my kids growing up. I love the album storage and face recognition. It’s easy to search for people and places. I also love that it makes little videos for me to share. And that I can access all my phones from the app or my computer. I recommend this app to everyone!
Best memories in a movie!
by kailey camila on 2018/04/15 14:29
I’m not one to write reviews...however this has been an amazing app which allows me to keep my valuable memories safe. I can store other items in my phone without losing videos or pics. I can change to a different phone or simply view to share with others, no matter where I am. It creates special albums and movies with the perfect title & music. It kindly reminds me about my “on this day” events..bringing me to tears at times. I can search by date or face recognition for specific memories. I simply love this app and am always recommending it to everyone. Absolutely free and absolutely great!!!!! Thank you so much google for touching my heart with all the amazing things you store and create for me. This morning I had a meltdown because of the movie you created “they grow up so fast”. Truly amazing...I literally cried...tears of joy. Being able to be transported to so many memories in such a short time it’s just the best feeling!!!!!! Thank you soooooooooo much again.
Fabulous and Fun
by Bnhnyhubunu on 2018/10/20 22:17
Photos are daunting. They accumulate and accumulate and take up storage. This App is worth every penny ( oh wait it’s free...hahaha!) Easy to use. Yes initial set up takes a bit of time, it’s like setting up your new phone for example. But you will not be disappointed. It automatically takes the photos from my phone ( I allowed it to do this) and now I have no storage issues. Love the “people, pet” thing it does where after the first few days it generates an individual face photo of almost everyone in your photos. You can then name them and when you click on that face photo ALL their photos appear. Amazing! It even recognized my 50 year old brother as an infant and put that photo under his section. It also comes up with these really cute collages and little videos of random photos. For example, a cute little video collage of our new little kitten set to music. You can save and voila’ you have a special keepsake to share. Good job Google!

Great app love the free storage. Wish there was a better way to backup from ICloud rather then through the phone. Uses up a lot of storage and bandwidth even if on Wifi still takes a long time to pull from ICloud to phone then up to Google Photos. Would be nice if Google Photos could retrieve the photos directly from iCloud and transfer across the web instead of using the phone as an intermediary device.

It’s too confusing
by Correlator's Experience on 2019/11/11 10:13
Where is my last photo I took? Or where is the last screenshot I just created? The navigation of the photos don’t help me much in real time cause I see it’s gonna take me a hot minute to figure out how the interface sorts and dates it all. Thanks for you trying to sort my photos I just want to have the Consoul to the control panel of how I want to find my photos. It makes me feel snooped up on. It irritates me when I can’t find my most recent pics quickly and easily.

Ability to delete Duplicate Photos
by Shopperolic on 2019/11/11 07:05
Google Photos is a great app for photo management but it needs to automatically detect duplicate photos and delete clutter in my library.

Yes, you should use this as your default for your photos no matter you OS. Plenty of storage, easily accessible, can easily share and the quality is top notch.

by Tubbs_1051 on 2019/11/11 06:11
Once you start scrolling down it loads and then unloads the pictures after a certain point which stops you from going any further. Otherwise it’s fine.
Thoughts on Google Photos
by AKay.. on 2019/11/11 05:56
Never had any issues, still trying to find my way around it completely to utilize every aspect of it, sharing, privacy,etc but for the most part, way better than paying for storage more storage on the cloud ea month.

by Jubu‼️ on 2019/11/11 05:51
Works great ! Only thing : pictures take a while to back up
Video playback is terrible
by GatorNation64 on 2019/11/11 05:48
I have an unlimited storage plan so videos are stored at original resolution. However the quality of video playback is complete trash. Videos shot in 4K look like they are 480p. A company that has the bandwidth to support 4K videos on YouTube can definitely fix this if they want. In the meantime I’m packing up and moving to OneDrive. Microsoft is superior in every way.
Google photos your the best.

Google Photos is the Greatest Of All Time
by Hoss_DeRoest on 2019/11/11 04:31
I’ve use Dropbox, iCloud, OneDrive, and so many other digital clouds to store pictures information etc. Google Photos was recently recommended to me, and I’m sold. It uploaded my 11k photos and 200 videos faster than any others by at least 4X the speed. In addition to that, the organization it enables you to have while all the cool collage and video features is beyond better than other apps or programs.

Backup your files, photos and videos!
by KingYashMusic on 2019/11/11 03:02
I save so much space on my outer using this service. I am able to access word documents, excel sheets and PowerPoints from my phone while at work. I enjoy looking back at photo I’ve saved over time from older devices. It’s been a pleasure using this device. It’s important to set privacy settings to ensure files you don’t want to be seen is hidden. Using this software allows you to share your files to people in your contacts but the optimizations renders better for other google drive users. I am slowly gauging my other friends and fan support to create a gmail account to use google drive and google photos better.

Phenomenal
by MoltenWater on 2017/10/27 05:59
This is the first review for an app I have ever wrote in my 9 years of using Apple products from iPhones to iPods. Genuinely this is the absolute BEST solution to modern photo issues on mobile devices to date. I have all my photos downloaded to my phone, and they all download to my other devices as well. When I delete it on one device it does it on the other too. All my photos are fully HD and even Live Photo’s show up as videos/gifs. When the hopefully not inevitable day comes and I break my phone, I will never have to worry that I lost my photos, the biggest fear for first world citizens of the world nowadays, because there will always be a copy saved somewhere. On top of the convenience of this app, with it not only being full compatible with everything, but just overall simple and easy to use. It completely devours it’s competition due to its unlimited storage and functionality. Never again will I receive the obnoxious notification that my 5gb iCloud storage is almost full on a phone that has 128gb. With APPLE telling me that I have to PAY for more storage that is NOT even UNLIMITED and not nearly as compatible across non-Apple devices as google photos. Google has always been the go-to for tools online, and they outdid themselves on this one. Hands down to them. 5/5.
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.
New Favorite Storage App!!!
by Fdenneyy on 2018/09/08 10:39
I am constantly taking pictures everywhere I go of everything I see. I also have a terrible habit of hoarding screen shots. I use to have to connect my phone to my laptop just so I could clear up space. Which then took up a lot of space on my laptop. Then I would spend so much time & money going through my pictures deciding which to delete and which to print off. I’ve tried many other online storage websites but they usually have a limit for the free account or they will delete your photos if you don’t log in often enough. This app not only makes uploading easy, it also hardly takes up any storage space on your phone, the upload is quick, it ask if you want to clear your phone storage once upload is complete, you can still access ALL of your photos by simply opening the app, you can access and upload your computer photos to your account easily, it has awesome tools you can utilize(collage, movie, gif, filters, etc), & if you’re like me you’ll love that you can still organize everything into albums!! Oh and did I mention it’s FREE unlimited storage with high definition?! Just finished uploading 6,038 photos/videos from my laptop & 949 photos/videos from my phone!! Download this app! You won’t be disappointed!! ♥️😍

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.
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!
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!
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.
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 "EDIT" tab, where I could add text or be able to write on the actual photo and be able to pick different colors, fonts, size of fonts and also underline, bold or put the text in italics. Also, my email is also linked to my son's phone, since I don't want to set him up with his own email account, until he gets a little bit older, that means that the Google Photo app is also linked to his phone, since he takes photos too. It would be nice to have an option to put a password protection on the albums that photos of each person is under. For example, if the album is labeled "ME", I wouldn't want him clicking on the tab and see photos of his mother that he shouldn't be looking at and scar him for life. Lol! Also, it would even come in handy when parents let their children play on their phone and they stumble upon photos that their parents didn't want them to see. Since my son also takes photos, one other idea that I had would be that anytime he takes photos and Google Photos downloads them, that the photos would be categorized by the device it was downloaded from, but you would still be able to organize the photos into albums later. Thank you!
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! :)
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 "upload in background" setting is not available to me so the app runs in the foreground. I had to upgrade storage size at Google -- for a fee -- because I wanted to keep original resolution and now I am curios about how Google Drive may be useful but don't know if Google Drive and Google Photos "play nice" with one another.
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.
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.
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 😊😉😎
Very good
by DiDeTu on 2018/12/15 13:26
Very nice photo storage app, easy to use, and offer many options of pictures layout and searching. Ive got it a month ago, and between my iPhone and the windows google photos app I'm still finding new things I can do. But one thing I cannot do (or maybe I didn't discover it yet) is to check what pictures belong to an album. The pictures' description doesn't show it. All my 25,000, and counting, pictures are organized in albums. If I don't place my photos in albums every time I take them, there's no way I can find out which picture was last that I placed into an album. I used Flickr before and it was very easy to check this, not only from the description (that shows you exactly if a picture belongs to an album or not, sometimes I discovered I had pictures belonging to 2 albums so I removed it from one of them), but when you take new pictures, they are placed, by default, into an album named "auto upload", so that you know exactly what pictures do not belong to any album. I wish Google had this feature.....at least let us know from the description. Otherwise, very happy with 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!
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.
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.
Organizes your visual life impeccably with little to no work on your part!

Google photos does a very good job of backing up unlimited amounts of photos and videos for free. It doesn’t end there! Google photos does a great job of recognizing faces places and objects on demand. Another great feature about this app is the fact that one can go on a trip and within a day or two of returning, google photos has prepared a photo album that you can edit, caption, and add to based on the geo tag of each photo. As if all of that wasn’t enough, google photos allows you to edit your photos and videos within the app, save them, and then share a single photo/video or groups of them with friends or family via a web link. This gives you total control of what others see. The fact that google photos is secured with your Gmail address and password, means that you can login to view your photos practically anywhere you have an Internet connection. Best photo and video software I have ever used...in fact, everyone else is rushing to copy features already perfected here. Try it. You'll like it. Promise.
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)
Solid photo app
by Shurman292 on 2018/04/23 22:12
I’ve been using google photos for over two years now and it has been an innovative, reliable way to backup photos and videos. The search feature is magic. There’s no other way to describe it. I searched for “headset” and a picture from five years ago popped up with me in the front seat of a small airplane with a headset on...it also somehow correctly recognizes people from birth to adulthood. I don’t know about you, but I look nothing like I did when I was two years old. There are a couple improvements I would suggest though. First, editing photos could be significantly more robust. It currently has all the basic editing features you would find in most default phone photo apps. Second, a more clear, innovative organization method would be very handy. As it stands, I have tens (maybe hundreds) of thousands of photos all arrayed in a vertical flow with the months/years denoted along the side. Perhaps the option to automatically organize/rearrange into (gasp) folders by year, event type (wedding, vacation, etc) or person and other categories. Just a thought.
Features break over time + no support
by RawwrBag on 2018/10/31 17:45
I’ve used Google Photos since launch. It works fine at first but as the amount of metadata builds up, features start to break. First it was “sharing in progress; keep app open to finish” that would last for days at a time despite it appearing to complete immediately. Then one day it just stopped syncing edits, at all. Next it started failing to show new photos that had been downloaded locally and not yet uploaded. Around this time it also started uploading duplicates of things. At some point during all of this, assistant creations began failing to save. They would show up again every time I opened the app. Shortly after, it stopped showing new assistant suggestions and only the old “stuck” ones that I couldn’t clear or save. Somewhere along the way, it halved the number of photos it was tracking for backup from 3,000 to 1,500 without me deleting anything locally or freeing up space. Reinstalling the app fixes some but not all of these issues, and only for awhile. Buyer beware. You’ll get hooked by all the cool features and then it’ll start to fall over. Also, there is absolutely no support whatsoever, which is sad because I actually bought extra storage for the service. I’m a paying customer and there is literally no way to contact Google about any of my issues.
Great but VERY SLOW
by LilGohan on 2018/11/29 00:20
I cannot think of a more useful app like this day to day. I have a 64GB iphone and my friends always flex on me because they have 256 GB or whatever. Now i flex on them because i have UNLIMITED STORAGE!!! I can truly say this app is a miracle worker, because otherwise, I would have to upload my photos to icloud where my ENTIRE family could see, but now there is this. The app is great but it is VERY slow. I have about 3000 photos to back up, and I expected it would take maybe 1-2 days. I even tried to not take anymore photos until it backed up fully so I don’t overload it or anything. Boy was I wrong, it has been 2 WEEKS!! AND I STILL HAVE 300 photos to back up. For some reason, the number keeps glitching, even though I’m not taking photos, the number sometimes keeps going up. One day I’m down to only a 150 photos to back up, a minute later, I have 291 photos to back up. I understand it may just me my slow phone, but this should be compatible with all users. I decided to upgrade just for this reason, and if it doesn’t work then, I will give it a 3 star rating, if it works, I will change my rating to a 5! Thanks Google!!!
Great Over 50 App
by Kit-Kat Tunes on 2018/04/22 15:11
Generation X and Baby Boomers have some say in this World of Technology! Typically we purchase the iPhone with less memory space available because let’s face it, “we’re not that techie”. What we fail to realize we’re going through that stage of life with the plastic pull-out wallet photo album our grandmothers use to whip out on everyone, strangers on public transit included. The only difference, our whip-out photo album is on our cell phones. Suddenly you realize with all those photos and videos of the family, and your memory capacity notifications have you wishing you had bought the phone with more memory! THANK YOU GOOGLE PHOTO APP! You have saved the day! I can store my plastic photo flip-out album now on my Google Photos and have memory to spare! The navigation on the app is so simple for all us “not so techie” 50+ people. The document archive is a great feature too. No more searching through photos for those paid bill screenshots. I also love the photo editing suggestions, considering I’m not a professional photographer. This App is a must for all 50+!
Collages are easy; make them better
by Judy Kotar on 2018/10/07 06:46
I'm preparing educational collages of many species of trees: full height, and closeups of leaves/needles, flowers/fruits or cones. Examples are larch, basswood, katsura. I choose the same 3 photos or 4 photos repeatedly in hopes of getting the specific arrangement I want. If there are 3 views, I want the full height of the tree to be the full height of the collage. Sometimes the app won't give me that. I wish I could see a set of diagrams. Suppose I select a diagram with 3 vacancies. I want you to label them first, second, third. The first photo I select goes in position #1, then #2, etc. If I want the biggest picture verticle on the left side, all I have to do is choose the right diagram, note the number in the tall box, and tap the tall tree when I get to that number. I think it's logical to name the biggest box #1. I'm not asking for ability to select the dimensions of the boxes; I like what you have now. I'm not asking for new diagrams; you already offer a full set with 2, 3, or 4 photos. If someone selects more than four photos, they should accept whatever arrangements the app currently offers. The permutations & combinations are too numerous.
Serves it purpose
by TLesiak on 2018/12/04 16:52
I ran out of space in my iCloud and had to find something to back up my photos. I use Google for most everything else so it made sense to use it for photos. I like that you can access the photos, along with all the other Google products, while logged into my google account. It automatically uploads pictures I’ve taken onto my phone and when I need to free up space on my phone I can choose that option in google photos. It’ll send all of the pictures uploaded to the deleted file on my phone. There are a lot of photo products out there that have an option to upload photos directly from Google Photos like Shutterfly or even choosing pictures to have printed at your local Walgreens. The only complaint is that I wish it didn’t take so long to load the pictures and when you first click on the photos, it’s a bit pixelated so it takes a while to clear up. Although, it does hold a lot of pictures for free so I’d rather it continue to be free than those complaints be corrected and pay a fee for faster/more storage.
Does the work for me
by Ditjk on 2019/03/12 15:43
My family and I started using Google photos as a way for us to share all the pictures we capture when we’re together and soon realized it’s a great way to share photos from when we’re apart as well. I love how easy it is to share photos and albums. Works really well with my iPhone and allows me to keep my storage space on my phone freed up for more photos! Another cool advantage to this photo sharing platform is the stylized photos and movies it randomly makes and suggests. I only wish I knew how to make a stylized photo or action photo on my own. Google photos allows you to save and search by faces and places. This includes even searching for your dog! It’s a little scary how it makes a movie of “They grow up so fast” which is a compilation of photos of my baby from infancy to toddlerhood - how does it know it’s the same kid? Incredible and freaky. In summary; I recommend Google photo to everyone that’s looking for an app to save and store photos. It’s incredibly simple to use and does the work for you.
The BEST. It does all the hard work for me
by Twestaz on 2018/09/24 00:26
Im adding tis later, it also does auto backups, allows you to decide what to take off the device, but keeps it safe in the cloud. Awesome..i just keep smiling —————— The best thing about this app, Google Photos, is that it does complicated things, Things I could figure out but would struggle with and take time, it makes albums, collages, searches for all pics of an individual, etc and offers it for my approval. Truly makes me look smart when I give them as gifts to my family. LOL truly it does make it so easy to group photos, Mix them around in a different format, do albums targeted to different people all with the Ease of touching the screen. ..... And of course ,the fact that it on its own . Goes out and find a way to mix up the Photos, taking your photos and turning them into a video is just awesome. And of course I review everything before it’s finalized so if I don’t like something I just do it again or have them do it again. Again,Thank you so much google developers. You’re the best!
Better than Apple Photos
by Lazziza on 2019/02/06 21:50
I am wondering why I never utilized this app BEFORE now? I love that it connects photos from my iPad and my iPhone IMMEDIATELY... unlike Apple. In real-time photos from my iPad, iPhone and MAC are all uploaded seamlessly without me ever thinking about it. Apple products can be connected to WiFi and not operate any where near that efficiently. Not to mention the fact that I need to pay out-of-pocket for iCloud storage to protect my precious photos on their devices. For years I’ve panicked if my photos weren’t backed up, hoping nothing would happen to my device until I could afford to pay for my cloud fees again. Now I never have to worry about that ever since Google has tons of storage! Google has me covered for FREE too! & *IF* it can get any better, every time I open the app there are new stylized pics, collages, and animated photos that Google has created for me! It makes my job easier and preserves memories in ways I may have never thought twice about. I highly recommend this app, and I consider it a MUST HAVE.
Amazing
by gator101gator on 2018/10/13 16:31
If you just use the “High Quality” upload size setting, you literally get storage for unlimited amounts of photos. And by unlimited, I really mean unlimited. I currently have over 5000 photos in storage and I’m constantly adding more with 0 downsides. Plus, being able to access your photos (as well as being able to download them) from basically ANY device that can access the internet is a huge benefit! Couldn’t recommend this enough for anyone that either has a ton of photos and videos and just want a backup for all of them and/or have storage capacity issues on their devices due to the amount of photos stored on it. All you have to do is have a Google account (i.e. have a Gmail account), log in to Google Photos, download the photos to it, and after it’s done backing up all your photos, you can then delete them all from your device and still keep all those photos and videos as well as be able to access them from basically anywhere! Amazing app and cant recommend enough!
Great App
by Audioxnant on 2019/03/25 20:13
I just hope Google don’t hold my life in pictures as some kind of ransom, later on down the track. Google can be bought and sold right? Along with all my data. Putting faith in a company like this is a huge deal but they are not a country. They have no governing body that is connected to the people so... when you hand over your life in pictures, your facial details and all of your friends faces, places and times are essentially owned. There will be AI that will find patterns in people’s experiences gathered from this data that will be used to manipulate people in ways that we can’t imagine and probably won’t notice. And I know all this and yet the app makes it easier for me to enjoy the thousands of pictures that I’ve taken in my life. It uses algorithms to sort and make use out of all these captured moments. It’s really wonderful. So google you can have my pictures and data and the ability to manipulate me in some kind of emotional bliss, in exchange for this awesome service! Game-changer.
Great with caveats
by kiwiyamagushi on 2018/09/05 18:10
The user experience in general is pretty straightforward and useful. Photos automatically get updated into google pictures and then they have a feature that helps delete photos on our phone. Great. I believe I could even teach my mom this, which is saying a lot. This is where they fall flat, all the suggestions with collages and animations cover the useful feature of cleaning up photos. It just confuses some users (for example, older adults) and makes them hesitant to press anything and turns them off from using it. Perhaps they should move that as an extra setting and not part of the mAjor automatic experience. Second, the shared album is separate from albums which also confuses older users. I think if they could clean up the “bells and whistles” they would reach a broader audience, but also if they have a broader audience current users would probably be more active since then they could really take advantage of shared photos. The logos without text can also be confusing for some users. So overall really great concept, but the user experience can be fine tuned to really be easy to use.
Fantastic way to liberate your iPhone
by publicrick on 2018/10/08 00:56
No room for the latest iOS update? You probably are like a certain friend of mine who takes pictures of everything and texts pics of every meal she eats when traveling to new places. Your photos are great, but they are hiding out in text AND photo storage. Why do you need them in both places? In fact, with this app you don’t need them on your phone at all! If you are cool with Google knowing almost everything about you, which it probably already does, then have no fear! This will solve your storage problem and make room for stuff you need on the phone. Set-up takes a while if you have multi-gigs of photos. Let it do its job and follow the Assistant’s guidance. Once done, install the latest iOS to see what you’ve been missing. One shortcoming I haven’t found an easy workaround for: if you are already in a text or mail and want to send an older picture, it’s not easy to browse through your photo library in Google from within the mail app.
Surprised how good yet not generally known by others
by TCMark on 2018/09/08 05:12
This app pretty much does it all, as the best backup app I’ve found and it’s creative Assistant. I’ve yet to run out of backup space and I have a ton of photos and videos. I don’t know how or why that works so well, but why pay for online backup space if you can use Google Photos? The Assistant suggests ready-made albums, makes movies, creates stylized copies of some of your beat shots, and even brings back memories from years past to see again. About the only thing I don’t like is how fast it backs up your photos if you leave that feature turned on. So if you haven’t had time to delete some of the photos you don’t want to keep in your phone’s Photos folder, Google Photos will have already backed them up. Then it’s a little cumbersome to synchronize what you want to save. It also backs up your media on multiple devices, which is very handy because you can view all of those photos and videos in one place. This is definitely a sleeper 5-Star app!
Review update 2019, don’t get rid of this app
by Itzazme on 2019/07/27 16:47
I don't know what I would do with out this app! I have been using google photos for over 12 years. (That's on three children and 10+ bdays a year.) In the beginning I uploaded my photos that I wanted to keep. So I did miss a lot of photos not uploading when I lost a phone, but ever since they started automatically uploading photos from my phone, if (when) my phone went bad, I didn't have to worry because my memories were already in google photos! Even better, now that you can give google photos permission to delete already uploaded photos, my phone has tons of memory. Plus my pics quality are good enough, I have been able to get some of my photos printed onto 16x20 canvases too. I can say so much. But I'll end with forget iCloud or Dropbox, why would you use anything else while Google offers Google Photos and so much more with goodie Drive? Literally I love it, I depend on google way to much to help me keep storage of all my data.
Brilliant!
by Larsenv on 2017/09/17 16:09
Google did an outstanding job at making a service where you can back up as many photos as you want and share them with your friends and family. In fact, this is the best service I've seen to do the job! Even though the picture quality isn't what it originally was, the photos are still in high quality. You can use the backup & sync app on your computer to sync your whole Photos library to Google Photos, which I've done and works well. I saved a ton of space on my iPad by syncing everything to Google Photos via this app, so if you're running low on storage this is an app that can save you. The awesomeness doesn't stop there! You can comment on photos, add locations, and best of all - you can use keywords to search pictures in your whole library! So if you want to find pictures of your dog in your library, you just search "dog" and a bunch of dog pictures magically come up! No tagging is required! Of course it's not perfect, but I've tested it with different keywords and it's still well done. One more thing, you can easily tag images by faces. Just enter the person's name and it'll automatically associate all pictures with them! The face detection is really good, and still finds photos with the same face if a kid is maturing. This service is a masterpiece, and it's a safe place to store all your photos. They pictures are automatically marked private unless you share them, so you don't have to worry about privacy concerns. Google Photos is a must-have app.
Excellent App, but Some Improvements are Needed
by samelnicomposer on 2017/12/11 18:00
I like how easily Google Photos backs up my photos from many devices, organizes them by person (and pet), gives suggestions for changes and archival, and for making photo books! There are two improvements that it could really use, though: 1) The movies are really bland and boring, especially when compared to the iOS Photos app. It’s just a basic slideshow and the music cuts off suddenly at the end. Automatic effects, panning, and music that at least fades out would be excellent. 2) More feedback for grouping people and pets. Much like how facebook works, being able to tap a face that hasn’t been identified and identifying it would be so helpful. It would help Google learn what faces it has trouble recognizing and make sorting the photos even better. Other than that, this app is absolutely incredible. It has a clean, easy layout and the free storage is perfect for everyday use. I would love to see this technology used with a digital picture frame to display photos because of how well it sorts and edits them.
let’s put a lock on it
by garrettpaulmoore on 2018/11/18 03:21
Seriously, the app is great and continues to store and store my pictures and videos and has for several years without any issues. One thing I would love to see in the very very near future are some locking features. Initially, a password/passcode that can be turned on to enter the app itself. And then the ability to lock specific albums without having to go through and hand select single items to archive them. The archive works great but if I want to keep multiple item together for easy access, it makes more sense for me to keep them in an album together, which is easily accessible to anyone with access to the app. If we could make the app and also the albums themselves password sensitive, this would change up the game for Google Photos. Also, facial recognition and face grouping have not been working lately on one of my accounts but work fine on another account. Weird. Love the app. Thanks for storing all my junk for so long. GooPho, you’re the GOAT
Love it. But one problem
by kittenzmeoww on 2019/09/02 05:02
I’ve been reading on a bunch of forums that so many people are having the same problem as what I’m having right now. It stopped backing up when it got to my videos. I’ve done EVERYTHING I’ve seen online to fix it. I’ve done everything that a google one personnel has told me to do. I even got my case sent to a higher management/tech person/people and I did what they asked me to do as well and nothing has worked. Out of the blue yesterday I realized that my videos are backing up maybe 5-10 a day. And I still have nearly 1500 videos left so that’s literally going to take me MONTHS to get these finished backing up and quite frankly, I’m over it. I need to get everything off of my phone so I can reset it and start over. And I refuse to lose these photos because they’re of my daughter growing up. So that is literally my only problem with this app. You guys need to fix the bug that causes the backup process to freeze. And apparently this has been happening for a year or so, maybe more. So please, PLEASE! Fix this problem!!!
Absolutely Essential!
by acapretto on 2018/06/29 13:01
Auto back-ups provide peace of mind, but that is just the beginning of why google photos is awesome. The ability to quickly organize photos into albums and seconds makes finding photos later easy. Sharing photos with friends is also amazingly fast. The auto assistant often makes great animations and videos from my photos, but I also have the ability to make my own custom animations and videos and the tools are intuitive and simple to use. Ability to find photos by searching for both thing and people is also quite impressive. My wife and I are also able to sync up our photos into a common space so that after any event pictures can be found organized by date and time. I also love that I have access to every photo I have ever taken because I have uploaded all the photos to Google Photos. I recommend it to everyone I know because I love pictures and this is the best tool to Save, share, and edit quickly photos and videos.
So many issues
by EBee1999 on 2018/08/05 23:17
I'm very frustrated with this app because I downloaded it to help me with the storage issues on my phone, but it's giving me separate issues of its own! The app says "backup complete" at the top of the page, but many of my pictures still have the white arrows going in circular motion. When I access google photos on the desktop, those items do not show up. I spent hours looking it up in forums and trying to fix it based on all the recommendations in forums, but nothing is helping. Only when I manually select the items and click "back up" do the arrows disappear, and it is irrational for me to sit there for hours selecting the items one by one when the app is supposed to do this automatically! On top of that, the app does not back up my videos. I really wanted this app to be worth it and to work for me and I'm very disappointed that it's not. Now I have to seek another solution and waste even more time worrying about this. At this point I'm not even sure if I should trust this app or continue using it, and I would not recommend it to friends with the issues I've been having! Save your energy and don't get this app!! -To Google: if I am contacted and the issues are fixed then I will change the review ..
Photo storage as it should be
by alanwill on 2019/07/16 02:42
I love this app for a couple reasons. 1) the Auto Awesome recommendations made my the assistant are brilliant. They take what is otherwise an ordinary picture and enhance it to be something much more special. They give life to pictures. No other service does this and for free. 2) the search capabilities. I have 10s of thousands of pictures and searching through them could be a nightmare until now. Google Photos categorizes your photos based on location and the subject of the photograph itself. It's accuracy in being able to detect the subject is rather uncanny. I can now search my pictures far easier than before. 3) I know I said only 2 reasons but this one is important too. Free! You can upload your pics for free! Enough said. Some improvements I would like to see would be an option to delete the originals once they have been successfully backed up. NB: I do not work for or am in anyway affiliated with google. Just a regular consumer of its products.
A beautiful way to keep life in your pocket
by Oxikane on 2018/05/18 05:43
I have used this app for 5 years to backup all of my photos and videos. It does so automatically, straight from your library, without ever getting in your way. The app has saved nearly every picture and video I’ve taken in that time. It just so happens that 5 years ago is around the time I met my wife. 4 years ago is when my first child was born. This means that every picture or video of my wife and my kids, all of the firsts and lasts and everything in between, they’re all here. There are so many beautiful memories here that I can hold onto forever because of this app. I love scrolling through the years and months and just watching life’s story. The app is designed in a way that makes this easy and puts a strong emphasis on your media, rather than clutter. It even helps you clear clutter such as unimportant screenshots, document images, and even blurry or duplicate photos, so that you can focus on the special things. The Assistant that is built into the app makes everything so convenient. It has created so many amazing movies, collages, and animations for me (without me even prompting it to) that perfectly capture the little wonders of life. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have all of the things Google Photos has captured for me. Half of the time I didn’t even know it was doing it, but I’m so grateful that it did. If you’re not already using it, you should start now. You’ll thank me in 5 years.
Amazing
by Zerg. on 2018/03/22 20:27
I have known google photos for awhile and recently PhotoScan. My hesitation to download it was totally relieved when my son visited me this holiday. Took old pictures with photoscan and send me back all of it. He send his album and now we have shared photoscan album. I'm over 70 year old and have old pictures colored and black and white. It's amazing to photo scan my wedding picture almost 50 years, old black and white. With the editing features, it transform it to a modern looking,clean brighter,pleasant looking,colored copy. I did 3 kinds of edited pics. For comparison. I'm very very amazed and delighted how google was able to do this. I'm very sure I'll be very proud to show this to all my friend in my forthcoming, 50th Wedding anniversary. Now l am looking for more antique picture to process nd it's keeping me busy. Thanks GOOGLE. AMAZING. 5 stars all the way. Improvements is continuous. Recently sending me reminders of things that happened a year ago. I'll try to order Album for my Anniversary pictures.
Slow and messing up original folders

I had the dream that when I first click on free up soace the google pic appwill start transfering all my pics, of course keeping my original organizing pic in existing folders. To my disdain l am trying to make this app since more than a week and so far only 350 out ofmyover 4000 pics were transfered, and all done under a hidden criteria of course. I am unable to find my pics. I do not lnow where and how are my pics now classified, why some older are not taken versus some newer amd so forth. I am not an IT specialist but l assume that if l am reading some directions l have a good capacity to follow those directions. In the user "non friendly" directions found on google help l read press free up space than remove. Second step/ remove never shows up on my poor Iphone 6. I unable to uograde the IOS due to low storage and this one is impossible to be done qoth google pic app. Too sad! I am offered 15 GB but lam unable to take advantage and use it! Help!

My phone was running out of space. I was constantly having to delete pictures so I could take new ones of my kids. Thankfully, my SIL told me about this app. I was able to transfer my 4,000+ pictures to the app in about 24 hrs. It took so long because I had so many to transfer at one time. I had to keep going in to check and manually transfer some here and there. But it was worth it. Once they were all successfully transferred, I was able to delete the pictures off my phone. The used space on my from when we 16 GB to barely 9 GB!! Now I don’t have to worry at all about how many pictures/videos I have or if I need to delete some to be able capture priceless moments of my kids growing up. I love the album storage and face recognition. It’s easy to search for people and places. I also love that it makes little videos for me to share. And that I can access all my phones from the app or my computer. I recommend this app to everyone!
Best memories in a movie!

I’m not one to write reviews...however this has been an amazing app which allows me to keep my valuable memories safe. I can store other items in my phone without losing videos or pics. I can change to a different phone or simply view to share with others, no matter where I am. It creates special albums and movies with the perfect title & music. It kindly reminds me about my “on this day” events..bringing me to tears at times. I can search by date or face recognition for specific memories. I simply love this app and am always recommending it to everyone. Absolutely free and absolutely great!!!!! Thank you so much google for touching my heart with all the amazing things you store and create for me. This morning I had a meltdown because of the movie you created “they grow up so fast”. Truly amazing...I literally cried...tears of joy. Being able to be transported to so many memories in such a short time it’s just the best feeling!!!!!! Thank you soooooooooo much again.
Fabulous and Fun

Photos are daunting. They accumulate and accumulate and take up storage. This App is worth every penny ( oh wait it’s free...hahaha!) Easy to use. Yes initial set up takes a bit of time, it’s like setting up your new phone for example. But you will not be disappointed. It automatically takes the photos from my phone ( I allowed it to do this) and now I have no storage issues. Love the “people, pet” thing it does where after the first few days it generates an individual face photo of almost everyone in your photos. You can then name them and when you click on that face photo ALL their photos appear. Amazing! It even recognized my 50 year old brother as an infant and put that photo under his section. It also comes up with these really cute collages and little videos of random photos. For example, a cute little video collage of our new little kitten set to music. You can save and voila’ you have a special keepsake to share. Good job Google!
