Best photo app out there, by far.
I really do love this app and I find that impressive because I hate photo albums. It makes photo keeping and use SO easy because it automatically uploads all my photos behind the scenes to the cloud and then I can organize them into albums to use on any device. It also automatically does some cool and strange styling tweaks and video collages you can view and keep or just ignore. That's more fun than it sounds :). Overall excellent and would recommend to anyone.
Reducing to 2 stars. Can no longer set backup to happen only when charging so now I have to turn off backup and hopefully remember to turn on while charging so it doesn't eat up my battery. What was Google thing?!?!? Excellent. Doen't put animation in correct order or let me manually pick order. Wish app had unique upload icons to show which photos were backed up as Original resolution and which were backed up as optimized resolution... Doesn't have access to delete from my sd card but it shows picts from my sd card - major annoyance. Doesn't seem to backup in background very well - I have to bring up app and leave it up for it to start backing up sometimes...
Very good app for organising and backing up photos but it is not detecting duplicate photos as my mi cloud account automatically downloads photos in full resolution and when space is low it automatically deletes full size image and when space is good it again download full size images but in google photos it backup up same image everything again and again. Fix this. Add features to identify duplicates and we should have folder there is only albums not folder in cloud storage its making me hard to organise my 15000 pictures.
It would've been a good app, but it has a huge flaw. It has unlimited storage for photos in "high quality", but in reality it's only 1600px on the long side. The app doesn't warn you about it. We upload photos to the cloud, free up space and real high quality is gone. All your photos now in 1600px. The app should warn about it!
This app is easy to use. Plus if you choose to upload your photos in high quality you can upload as many pictures as you want in high quality without taking up any cloud storage! The high quality is great! I can barely tell the difference between the original quality and the high quality. You can set it up to automatically backup your photos, videos, gifs, etc over WiFi and cellular data. It's worry-free knowing that my pictures are automatically backing up on WiFi so if I accidentally delete an important picture on my phone, or if the picture was on my old phone, I just go to my Google Photos app and look for it. Plus you can name pictures so they become easier to search for.
