One Drive, Drop Box, iTunes are all platforms that offer photo sharing services but perhaps one of the most popular especially amongst Android users is Google Photos. This photo sharing service provided by Google itself is exemplary to say the least. Google users can quickly backup all their media data and access it on any device as they please.
Google Photos conveniently backs up your photos and produces an organized photo gallery on the app. This organization is chronologically placed but there’s also an option of making custom albums to organize your gallery the way you want it.
The photos that are backed up and stored on the Google Photos app can be retrieved, deleted or shared whenever you want. These photos are now directly uploaded through the internet on your Google Photos account so that even if you delete the original photos from your phone media gallery, they will still be available to retrieve on the Google Photos app if you have backed them up.
Google Photos offers massive unlimited storage that is totally free so that you can delete original photos from your phone and free up space but still be able to use the photos uploaded in your Google Photos account. The account can be accessed from any device and it is completely private and secure unless you choose to share a particular item yourself with your friends.
Not every photo needs to be backed up though. If you don’t want photos to be backed up automatically, you can always turn off the automatic option. Similarly, you can choose to backup only on WiFi and not on mobile data.
The app offers an intuitive UI design which makes it fun and easy to use. Users can rapidly scout for the image or video they’re looking for by an intelligent visual search system. This means that the app can detect and memorize faces of people, places and things and help you filter through thousands of pictures easily without tagging.
The photo gallery on Google Photos is much more than a simple storing space. On the app you can also build slideshows, albums, collages, movies, animations and panoramas by putting together your favorite photos and videos together. These albums and collages can be viewed and shared with people you love. There’s an option to partner your account with someone else so they can view our photo gallery as well. Moreover, you can also view your photos and videos directly on your TV that has Chromecast support.
Additionally, Google Photos provide a decent editing service as well. Although it’s not really an editing application, it does have impressive editing tools to change up the lighting, brightness, contrast, warmth and more of your pictures. Furthermore, you can also throw in a filter of your choosing from a list of 14 different photo filters. These filters, however, might not be amazing and will hardly come to use.
Google Photos has a mind of its own – not only does it support visual searches but it can also sort our albums automatically. The app will suggest a particular album and choose photos for it from your gallery smartly. Google Photos also reminds you of nostalgic memories by bringing up albums and pictures from a year or two ago. This ‘rediscover’ memories option is unique and great to experience memories from your past again.
Google Photos is an impressive photo gallery and sharing app that you should have on your phone. It allows for easy organization, back up, editing, sharing and – above all – unlimited storage space.
