• 15 GB OF CLOUD STORAGE: Every Google Account comes with 15 GB of storage and you can choose to automatically back up all your photos and videos in Storage saver quality or Original quality. Your photos are safe, secure, and private to you. All photos and videos you backed up in Storage saver quality before June 1, 2021 do not count toward your Google Account storage. *Storage is shared between Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Photos.

• 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.

• ADVANCED EDITING: Transform photos with a tap. Use intuitive and powerful photo and video editing tools to apply content-aware filters, adjust lighting, and more.

• MOVIES AND GIFS, MADE FOR YOU: Get automatically created movies, collages, GIFs, and more from your photos. Or easily create them yourself.

Great Way to store (backup) your photos

If you opted for high quality photos, the app provides unlimited storage for your back up photos, definitely recommended it to install on every smartphone. Thumbs up from me!

Okay that part definitely isn’t written by myself, anyway it’s basically what I would express, if you’re like me, like mostly of us using smartphones to capture great photos, technically quality without exceeding 16MP almost make minor different with the original pictures taken on phone. Good alternate way to back your photos. kudos to that

Create face recognition album past 20,000 limit

After reaching the folder cap of 20k using facial recognition, photos are unable to be automatically uploaded to a new photo album. Can you please add a date parameter to the album settings we can continue using facial recognition for auto uploading to an album.

The goal is to continue using facial recognition to automatically add photos to the album. Is there a possibility to use the facial recognition from a certain date or automatically create a new album to place photos in? to manually upload to a new album without the automatic upload. When trying to re-scan with new images, it accounts for photos that are already in the previous album and fills the folder with the older images.

The goal is to continue using facial recognition to automatically add photos to the album. Is there a possibility to use the facial recognition from a certain date or automatically create a new album to place photos in?

Ever since I started using this Apps my time spent in managing my photos, albums from 2-3 cameras has been greatly reduced. It is a great way to manage and share photos/album with family and friends.
However, if there is one feature that I need from this Apps will be the ability to do slides show from the photos/albums. I know this can be done via the Movie function but it is just not as good as having the slides show button available in the Apps.
Thank you Google Photos. You are great!
