    Although it works great with syncing and backing up my photos, it doesn't do a great job of organising. There should be an option to backup and sync the albums(folders) just the way they are in my phone or SD card memory. So when I add a new photo to e.g., a 'holidays' album(folder), that photo should be uploaded to a 'holidays' album(folder) that is in google photos. Otherwise, great app. A must have if you want to sync your photos and have it back them up for you as you add them to your phone.

    I’ve had ALL of my photos and videos from the last 10 years saved ONLY on my computer up until I discovered Google Photos. I can’t even tell you how stressful it is having all of your memories, from my wedding photos... to my kid’s entire childhoods..everything from birth to current day - all reliant on a device that is over a decade old. I swear I have nightmares about my computer malfunctioning and losing every last record of these memories disappearing for good. I have found such relief in knowing that everything I cherish from my past is now safe and easily accessible with Google Photos! The feeling of security is priceless, (and free), but that’s just the beginning. Google Photos recognizes faces and is able to search for specific people throughout the many years. It knows my children’s ever changing faces from birth to now, which is amazing.. it puts together memories to look back on of this date from past years and has a super easy to use search system. I can search for events like “Christmas” or “Easter” and have every photo stored of those holidays from past years at my fingertips. For my Mom’s birthday I was able to put together a photo book by searching for photos containing - my Mom, my Mom and myself, my Mom and my kids.. This thing is a wizard!

  • Stores my photos as long as they are not 4K May 29, 2018

    By Auric Nova
    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.

    Well, I do love google pics. I dont care for how once you put a pic in an as album it's still in the "picture" section section. It's so messy. Plus it's always wanting to "archive" my pics of documents and screenshots. Just because it's not a person's face doesnt mean it's not important to me. Stop asking me. The suggestions to "clean up" make it too easy to accidentally delete/archive. I love how it backs it all up. It works great with snapbridge camera app. Transferred Samsung S9 easily.

  • Hands down best app for keeping & sharing life's most memorable moments Oct 3, 2017

    By MeghaMillie
    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.

    The new UI is great and has nice new features, but my biggest bugbear is that the Google Stylised Photo creations are now hard to find. One came up in my recent highlights but I didn't realise you had to save it then or it's gone, and now I can't find it again....really disappointing. Updated to 1 star....just edited a photo, saved a copy, nowhere to be found?!? Update...any edited photos saved locally in your phone files...not recognised by photos?

    I had previously given it 5 starts but changed it to 2 now. Did not like the new update. It was easier to navigate the app previously. Also when you click on the memories shown on top and select view all photos from this day, it doesn't do anything! The videos that are backed up and no longer on your device take way too long to buffer and play

  • No flexibility Dec 25, 2019

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

    I have never left my opinion on anything before. I am unhappy with the changes made to this app. I am not a fan of timeline setups. I think it is junkie. I do not want to have to search by date of when something happened. Losing the file folders system to move pictures to for work or personal makes me not want to take pictures. I have to have my phone for work and myself. This app does not let you separate that anymore.

    Seems to get worse with each update. Now it seems less user friendly. Pictures I take, screenshots, and other photo items sometimes never appear where they should. Photo editor works sporadically. Also discovered the app has been constantly running in the background, so my phone battery drains a lot quicker. Will be using an alternate photo app, and permanently disable this app. Very disappointing 😔.

  1. Extremely efficient & reliable! Instantly backup an unlimited number of images without losing quality
  2. Looking for that awesome sunset image you uploaded a long time ago? Instantly find the photo you want by simply typing what's in the image
  3. Make the most out of your creativity! Automatically create stunning collages, beautiful movies & panoramas

  • Google Photos is the only way to go! Aug 15, 2018

    By Angel8606
    It’s the only way to go, if ya ask me! I know, ya ain’t asking, right? Okay, well that’s just fine, because I’m just-a-tellin! What I’m telling is that I love this App, because of so many things I won’t be able to list em all! Totally impossible! But I can share a few reasons why I love it so much! One is because of the option of assistant! When you choose this it gives you an option to save or dismiss the Apps, altered & filtered or maybe, brightened & cropped, or maybe, actually I can keep going but you get the Jist of what I’m sayin, right? You won’t believe the things assistant can do to your pics to make them look better or make them look like a work of art! You just won’t believe your eyes, or that you even took the pic in the first place once you see what all it can and will do! Lol woo-wee! I love this so much! Don’t waste your time with any other App out there claiming to do this or that! This one doesn’t have to claim anything, just open it up and Vola! Lol Art, Beauty, Imagination & I can keep going..... you already know! I’m going to stop here and let you see for yourself! The App speaks for itself! Plus I’ve spoken way to much as it is! Jeesh! Lol Y’all will have a blast and enjoy! I know y’all will! Lol Chow!

  • Love Mar 13, 2020

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

    What can I say... It's awesome!!! Why? Because no matter where I go no matter what I use device wise I will always be able to access my photos or anything Google related. For example. I needed to finish a paper for class. The wifi down the street at a tavern was the spot. They had a computer to use. I went straight into Google my documents were right there Ready to continue writing. For that I got a good grade on my paper. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to enjoy photos.

  • Be careful what you upload and store!! Nov 21, 2019

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