One of the most amazing app I have ever used. Collages, gif animations are very easy to create. The videos which sometimes are done automatically by the app can be edited using a variety of design templates and songs. The album can be shared so you coud use the link and pass it to you family and friends without the necessity of up/dowloading the data. I found that sometimes the video maker crashes and there are some bugs when uploading the video to youtube directly but even with this its worth 5*. thank you
This is a great system for storing your photos. Plenty of cloud storage and easy to use. My only gripe is that it hammers your internet bandwidth when syncing to the cloud. Probably not so bad if you're on fibre but it totally kills my ADSL connection. I wish they'd put some kind of throttle on it. Other than that it's perfect.
I have been on "getting photos" since I activated this galaxy s8 plus. None of my pictures that I have taken or downloaded have been backed up. I have made sure the correct folders are marked,tried to clear cache, and uninstall updates as advised by the google help page. Made sure it is set to backup when charging and on wifi. Any help that proves fruitful appreciated. Edit: after all the above trouble, somehow the pictures started to upload. Don't know what happened really. Edit: now I have a Note 8 and still have the same issue. I have not had any resolution.
It's really a cool app. Few things like edit option, creating collage, saving edited file as a copy are really good feature. One good thing it is already connected to Google drive so backup is automatically taken. Many a times it offers some stylized photos. It is sometimes really good but sometimes it makes it black and white and doesn't give any opinion to change it as well. This is not good. Many a times it fails to locate and becomes bit difficult to contribute to Google maps. Overal it's really a good app from Google.
Love it, nice reminder of previous photos. Makes me smile every time I click on it. The stylized photos are fun! Great to locate by month and year. By far the best photo app and I have a few for comparison. Nice to know my shots arw ng backed up by Google!!! Recommend to everyone who listens....
Bring back "backup while charging only" feature. I take so many photos or my kids. Many don't always turn out so I'd delete them on my phone before charging and only the good ones ended up on Google Photos. And those would be the ones I'd use for our family scrapbooks. Which was perfect. Now all of them end up on Google Photos and I have to go through and delete them on there too.
