Google Photos is a photo and video sharing and storage service by Google. Its core features were previously embedded within Google+, the company’s social network. The new Google Photos includes unlimited photo and video storage, and apps for Android, iOS, and the browser.Users back up their photos to the cloud service, and become accessible between all of their devices connected to the service.
1. A Whole New Level of Organization
The layout and streamlined view that you get with Google Photos is extremely handy, as it sorts your pictures by the months you took them. The days of searching tirelessly through your massive amount of photos is over.
2. Auto Backup for Photos and Videos
You can now download this app on all of your mobile devices and also your computer. It’s possible to set up an auto backup program which photos automatically back up to, thus saving your precious mobile storage space.
3. Find Photos By What’s Actually In Them
The new searchable function that Google created allows you to search for photos by what’s actually in them. The science behind Google search is well established, and while this new feature may see some slight bugs and issues at first, image recognition will only continue to improve. As always the standards of Google are pronounced and held in high regard.
4. Add Movement to Your Life
A new feature of Google Photos allows you to snap a few photos in succession and create an animated GIF. I personally enjoy the app Photo for this reason, but now this feature is integrated into the most smoothly running photo organizing app ever.
5. Interactive Timeline
Who doesn’t love a good animated timeline? Especially when the timeline features all of your favorite photo and video memories. You can look back at those events in succession, and relive your past with this feature.
The revamped panorama feature allows you to effortlessly combine multiple images into amazing auto-stitched panoramic photos. Get a detailed shot of everyone at a party, or capture that amazing once in a lifetime mountain top view as it’s happening without the stress of perfectly setting up a panoramic photo.
7. No More Storage Restrictions
Google Photos now allows you to upload literally as much content as you want, for free! The new feature lets you choose to upload and compress your images and does so in an exceptionally user friendly manner.
8. Beautifully Easy Google Photos Image Editor
The new look and feel of the Google Photos image editing software is incredible. It allows side by side comparisons of your editing efforts so you can see what it looks like compared to the untouched photo.
