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.

I love the platform and all of it's features I just wish they'd allow you more options to categorize and edit photos yourself. Like if I create a collage I want to be able to arrange the photos or center them better than the auto generated collage that will not allow me to reposiston the photo. The facial recognition only allows the system to pick faces but will not allow you to identify a person in a photo so that it will show in that individuals folder. But other than that I think it's 👍🏽.

Hi Monestime. We recommend that you take a look on the "About models of faces" of this article: goo.gle/2GK3KBD to know how the grouping by facial recognition works. If you wish, you can share your feedback with our team here: goo.gle/3sPwq2I. Thanks.

I am not impressed. Ok, it backs up your pictures. That's good, except that capcity for that is limited unless you pay extra. And it has very limited editing, which again doesn't do much unless you pay extra. One of the only features that distinguishes it from a simple gallery app is that it recognizes faces and lets you name them for later searches. But time after time it has simply tossed out entered names and faces, making the "feature" virtually worthless and frustrating. I hate it.

Overall I like the app. Tons of great features and options. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to move photos to specific folders and hide said folders. Yes, you can make folders for things, but all those photos are still displayed in the "photos" tab where I don't want them to be. Locked folders are limited in that they are no longer backed up and won't transfer to new devices, which is why I won't use the feature. Wish my phone had a built in gallery for this purpose.

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.
