Awe Great Google!

I’m a picture loving individual and that’s an understatement at best! I must own millions of photos! And I’ve probably over the years lost thousands I’ll never get back from having stored them on the hard drives of computers that died and took my photos with them to their graves! Precious memories I’ll never get back! So when my Son hooked me up with the Googles Photo App and walked me through it I’ve found it to be basically THE BEST way of storing and accessing my photos PLUS being able to automatically share ones I want to directly from the app itself! No more of this having to go into my photos and selecting the ones I want to share; then having to drag-n-drop them into another app or my email so I can send them! Also as I understand it, I no longer have the worry issue of “what if my computer crashes or just dies and I lose all my pictures—a-g-a-i-n!” Now with them being stored in Google Photos, I’ll always have them at the ready so I can get to them from any device anytime and anywhere I go! I have to say I’m loving this concept and I’m really enjoying this service! It’s truly unbelievable how much freedom from worrying and stress it has given me. And really; couldn’t We ALL use a little less worry and stress in our days? I know I could and thanks to the Google Photo App one less worry and stressor has been eliminated from my world! THANK YOU GOOGLE PHOTOS! Keep up the Great work!!!

Love it but not enough free storage

I used to recommend to EVERYONE to get and use Google Photos because automatically across all devices you can have ALL your photos in one place and you can free up the massive amount of space they take up on said devices. Plus the little Memories and fun little albums and things they make are cute especially when they do it all for you. The only problem is now the storage issue not very long after they started making you pay for storage after 15gb I surpassed 15gb. It would be nice if my email wasn’t also part of what makes up the amount stored. Now I either have to clean house which is why I got this app to begin with space and the work to maintain space somewhere being a burden. Or pay. And I just hate paying for apps and hate paying for stuff that was once free and also hate paying because I’m basically being forced to pay. Separating my emails (the thousands on my account since I’ve had gmail for yrs and yrs) from the allotment of space for my photos I think would be a good alternative to consider. That way it’s 15gb free solely for photos and after that pay. But with everyone and their mother sister aunt cousin and all their third party blah blah blah emailing me 3x a day like come on. I’m seriously considering not even keeping a Gmail any more Because of this space issue but again SOO MUCH WORK. I want big tech to make my life simpler not more complicated and aggravating. But if space or paying isn’t an issue then 100% recommend 😁

9/10 read review- last sentence explains why it’s 9 not 10

Pretty solid app. Downloaded it because Apple iCloud got full and had less space plus I’m able to use this on any phone unlike Apple photo app I can download google photos on any device and have all my photos no matter if I break a phone or get a new one I’ll always have my pictures. Google photos app also has some really cool features on it. I love that every time you open the app it downloads all new photos you’ve taken sense the last time you opened the app and not only that but it also works in the background if you don’t cancle the app out so you can literally click on the app and go onto Facebook and your photos will still upload. And it also has a feature to where the app asks you if you want to delete the photos on your phone that are in the google photos cloud so you can free up space on your phone which saves so much storage. And not to mention that you have so much space for a ton of photos and videos (and when I say a ton I mean it, bcuz I normally have any where from 1,000 to 5,000 photos on my phones. I’ve had 5 phones over time that are/ were linked with the google photos cloud app so that’s somewhere between 20,000 photos and I still have a lot of space left for 20,000 more. 10/10 stars. My only complain is I Just wished it worked better for offline use
