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 😁

Love it, but…

It was honestly too good to be true when they offered unlimited photo storage. Sadly that came to an end. When it was unlimited storage, I literally made it a point to bring up in conversation to every single one of my friends. Funny enough, nobody believed me when I explained how good it was, and they missed out if they didn’t download it. The longer you put off downloading this app, the more you will miss out on. This app was everything (and more) before any other game company was doing anything remotely similar. And I’m confident everything uploaded won’t be hacked or leaked. If you are a criminal or take photos of yourself commuting a crime, maybe don’t do that, but also I would suggest not using this service just in case. The government can subpoena your Google data and although I haven’t ever seen Google Photos being a turning point for a case, I don’t doubt that the government could make Google give them access to every single photo you’ve every taken. But that’s one end of the double edge sword - the other end is that every single photo you ever take will be automatically uploaded to the servers so you don’t have to do it yourself and so you never have to worry that any of your photos will ever be lost. But, now you have to pay for storage so that is on you for not using this app sooner. I use this app more than the photos app on iPhone.
