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.
NO ADS: Google Photos doesn't sell your photos, videos, or personal information to anyone and we don't use your photos and videos for advertising.
FAST AND POWERFUL SEARCH: Your photos are now searchable by the people, places and things in them — no tagging required.
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.
ADVANCED EDITING SUITE: Transform photos with a tap. Use intuitive and powerful photo editing tools to apply content-aware filters, adjust lighting, and more.
AUTOMATIC CREATIONS: Bring photos to life with automatically created movies, collages, animations, panoramas, and more from your photos. Or easily create them yourself.
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.
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.*
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.

Safety starts with understanding how developers collect and share your data. Data privacy and security practices may vary based on your use, region, and age. The developer provided this information and may update it over time.
Auto HDR is now a feature when viewing pictures in this app with the latest Android and Samsung operating systems. There appears to be no way to turn this off. In the last version this did not occur. It is VERY distracting to see the colors and brightness of a photo completely change while looking through your pictures, and never for the better. Please allow us to turn this feature off.

Your able to use pic's for sharing links. It helps you for starting chats. You're able to add people to see, comment,copy,share and add their pic's. Make sure you trust the people. Use pic's in google maps and other apps as well. The pic's could be better some don't look right. The faces are blurry. Deleting duplicates and managing pic's could be easier. I've had this app for years but needs a few adjustments. The app is free and without ads so that's amazing to me.

The Photos App breaks with the most recent software version on Pixel 7. I couldn't delete or edit any photos and had to uninstall the app for it to function. This app is made by the same company that makes both the OS and the phone itself. Otherwise a great app, but I wouldn't recommend a car if it didn't come with wheels so I won't recommend an app that doesnt work.

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.
