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 most of the app. Photos can be nicely organized and saved in albums. It syncs with your phone's gallery. The one thing I've discovered to watch for is that if you delete an album in the shared section it will delete that album entirely. I lost 3 extremely valuable and sentimental albums full of pics that weren't saved anyplace other than Google photos. So just be careful, it's easy to do and there aren't any warnings.

Usually a great app to keep track of all my pictures but here lately I have been having problems. All my pictures are out of order and when I click on the photo it still shows the correct date but when I'm scrolling through my pictures they are off by days or even years. I have tried searching how to fix this, Uninstaller and reinstalled and cleared the cache and storage. Nothing works! They are still viewing correctly on the web version though. 5 stars if I can get this issue fixed.

I am experiencing major problems with this app. It never shows the photos I just took in the photo app and for some reason the backup feature turns off. I have taken several photos that are irreplaceable that never appeared. This is unacceptable. When I look up how to fix this problem I'm told to clear the cach in the photo program but how am I supposed to do this every time I go to take a picture. I've lost a couple very good photos that I'll never have again because of this malfunctioning app.

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.
