About this app

Google Photos is the home for all your photos and videos, automatically organized and easy to share.

- “The best photo product on Earth” – The Verge

- “Google Photos is your new essential picture app” – Wired



The official Google Photos app is made for the way you take photos today and includes essential features like shared albums, automatic creations and an advanced editing suite. Additionally every Google Account comes with 15 GB of storage and you can choose to automatically back up all your photos and videos in High quality or Original quality. You can then access them from any connected device and on photos.google.com.



With the official app, you get:



15 GB OF STORAGE: Back up 15 GB of photos and videos and access them from any device and photos.google.com—your photos are safe, secure, and private to you. All photos and videos you back up in High quality before June 1, 2021 will not count toward your Google Account storage.



FREE UP SPACE: Never worry about running out of space on your phone again. Photos that are safely backed up can be removed from your device's storage in just a tap.



AUTOMATIC CREATIONS: Bring photos to life with automatically created movies, collages, animations, panoramas, and more from your photos. Or easily create them yourself.



ADVANCED EDITING SUITE: Transform photos with a tap. Use intuitive and powerful photo editing tools to apply content-aware filters, adjust lighting, and more.



SHARING SUGGESTIONS: With smart sharing suggestions, giving your friends the photos you took of them is painless. And they can add their photos, too, so you’ll finally get the photos you’re actually in.



FAST AND POWERFUL SEARCH: Your photos are now searchable by the people, places and things in them — no tagging required.



LIVE ALBUMS: Select the people and pets you want to see and Google Photos will automatically add photos of them as you take them, no manual updates needed.*



PHOTO BOOKS: Create a photo book in just minutes from your phone or computer. You can also see suggested photo books based on your best shots from a trip or period of time.*



GOOGLE LENS: Search the hard-to-describe and get stuff done, right from a photo. Copy and translate text, identify plants and animals, add events to your calendar, find products online, and more.



SEND PHOTOS IN SECONDS: Instantly share photos with any contact, email, or phone number.



SHARED LIBRARIES: Grant a trusted person access to all of your photos.



You can also upgrade storage for your Google Account, used for Original Quality photos and videos by subscribing to Google One. Subscriptions start at $1.99/month for 100 GB in the US. Pricing and availability can vary by region.

Overall it is a great app. Though, like other people, I have been experiencing problems. One, even though all my photos are backed up and synced, it doesn't show some of my important photos and videos. Next, my photos and videos are scattered, and not in order of how it was in order. I have a couple of other bugs, where it kicks me from the app, just shows a white screen, etc. I still like this app, though it can be better.

I love using this app and it has proven itself very useful on many different occasions. It has a lot of great features, but at the moment I'm dealing with a giant bug I've read other users are having that the Internet can't seem to help with. The dates shown for different photos have been completely jumbled. If I look under info for a particular photo it will show the correct day, or in an album, but just on the main screen it's made it very confusing trying to find anything. What should I do?

I love the platform and all of it's features I just wish they'd allow you more options to categorize and edit photos yourself. Like if I create a collage I want to be able to arrange the photos or center them better than the auto generated collage that will not allow me to reposiston the photo. The facial recognition only allows the system to pick faces but will not allow you to identify a person in a photo so that it will show in that individuals folder. But other than that I think it's 👍🏽.

What's new

We are introducing a new storage management tool to help you easily manage the photos that count toward your storage quota. This tool will surface photos or videos you might want to delete — like blurry photos, screenshots and large videos.
