Amazon Prime members have unlimited photo storage + 5 GB video storage. They can also share their storage with five others by adding them to their Family Vault, and search for photos by keyword, location, or the name of the person in the photo.

Your photos are easy to find, because the app organizes your photos automatically. Prime members can quickly find any specific photos by searching for the things in their images, like "dog," "sunset," or "Seattle."

Once your photos have been saved to Amazon Photos, you can access them from nearly any device. Finally move those family photos from your old laptop, your phone, and your desktop so they’re all together in one safe place.

No photos displayed since updating

Ever since running the recent update none of my photos backed up are shown within the app. It says that everything is backed up but all that is shown is empty frames. I have restarted my device, checked my internet connection and all routine things, I have even tried to re-download some photos but it tells me they’re already downloaded even though I can’t see them. Thank goodness I also use google photos otherwise it seems I would not be able to recover my pictures. Clearly there is a bug with this update that needs fixing
Thankfully the bugs are fixed and everything seems to be good. I still use alternative clouds ‘just in case’

Versatile App and Free with Prime

This App has really changed the way I use my phone. I have always suffered with limited phone storage so would hold off taking photos where I normally would, with the app it automatically uploads your photo library, then picks any new media when opening the app afterwards. I can then go back and delete my older photos on my phone to create free space, as the app has unlimited photo storage with Prime membership. It also has a desktop version which I’ve been able to upload my older photos from other phones and also a camera I own creating a centralised photo album of all of my photos ever.

The only issues with the app is it doesn’t have any way to sort or filter on albums, with places, dates, people, scenery etc which would be very useful as a search tool. Also having a limited storage 5GB space for video is also annoying, as it fills up much more quickly than you’d realise.

Very good 😊

Update - Nov 2017

Updated to 5* as not only have we now got editing features, but also People detection and Family sharing!
Now my Wife can upload her photos too and we can share photos in the Family Album section.

People detection doesn't seem to be quite as accurate as Google's implementation though, so it needs a way to 'untag' those that it gets wrong, I can't see a way to do that at the moment.


Very good service, really like the 'This Day' feature to remind of years past.
For me, to improve the uploading of photos, I use the brilliant PhotoSync app. This gives me more 'fine' control over the process, like renaming photos with my preferred date format & choosing which folder to upload to, which is great for separating different devices. It also triggers auto uploading by setting locations.
Would give 5* if some basic editing features were added.
