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.

Google photos is the default photo app for my new phone, and for the most part since I've adjusted, it's been great. However, one major issue I'm having is with the facial grouping. Many of my pets aren't able to be added, as the app doesn't recognize a face in the image. I think it would be helpful if you could add a square to mark where a face is in an image even though the app hasn't marked it already, and add it to a pet or person folder from there.

A good app, and I like the backup function. The option of deleting photos when the app suggests backing up would be fantastic! Update: One less star since they're isn't an option to delete the daily highlights when they are being shown. I don't know why the interface is so clunky, I assume they want to sell more storage instead of having a fantastic product.

The app generally tries to be "too smart" with a bunch of "helpful" features that really just get in the way of usability. For example you're bombarded with highlights and editing suggestions. The AI also randomly picks out some "interesting" photos and makes them really big in the library view, but it does a really bad job of choosing those photos. Many of these there is no option to turn off. There is also an annoying amount of advertising to get you to buy canvases of your photos.

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.
