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.

It appears there is a problem with the latest update. I keep getting the message "photos keeps stopping" repeatedly. It is very annoying! Just received a new update yesterday and now it appears that photos is working properly again. Thank you for whatever you did. The only little issue that I still have is that you cannot select and download multiple photos for Facebook or Instagram. You have to choose them one at a time and download them to your file manager first.

It used to be so easy to capture photos, edit them and everything stayed in order. Now its impossible for me to keep a decent inventory without wasting so much time deleting copy and finding my place in line again after each edit. It should be a choice the user makes for our purpose and needs. Even if the majority finds it fit as is. Why did you remove "save"? What a mess. Can you refer me to an app that doesn't have mandatory "save copy"?

Customisation options for back up & sync are too limited. I'd like to be able to back up certain device folders without backing up my camera, and I'd like to be able to delete things from Photos without deleting from my device. Both so Photos isn't so cluttered with junk I don't want. Wish this made file management easier, but it just makes it more of a headache! Nice to have cloud storage but please make it more intuitive.

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.
