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.

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.

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.

Opened the app and got the normal almost out of storage stuff, but saw a new "Free Up Space" option, right underneath where it shows storage info. I hit ok. The app then took the photos off of my device because they were "safely backed up", did not keep the albums they were in, and now it's all scrambled in the drive. It can't even find cat photos correctly.

Quality changes when you edit photos or share them outside of the app. If I want to "unblur" a photo (which I pay extra to be able to do) it immediately darkens and changes the overall photo. If I share photos to an external app, the same thing happens. I want to see what my photos will look like accurately in the app, not something that looks okay until I want to do something with it. This app just keeps getting worse and worse, honestly.

The "backup your photos automatically" pop-up is getting more and more invasive, annoying, and forceful. It's a fine reminder to have occasionally, but not every single time you open the damn app. There should, at the VERY LEAST, be an option to "snooze" the reminder and not have it asked for, like, at least a month. Otherwise, the app is fine and gets the job done. I don't need anything fancy, just an easy way to access my photos.

Hi Kaels. Make sure you have followed the steps in this article: goo.gle/3985Zxw to disable back up. Also, feel free to share feedback with us here: https://goo.gle/3gaHLEz. Thanks.

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.
