Google Photos: A New MUST Download App!

June 1, 2015

A few days ago, Google announced its new much-needed app for iOS and Android phones: Google Photos. And, you must download it!


The main goal of the app is to offer you unlimited storage (if you choose high quality rather than standard) to back up all your photos and videos on your phone. And, it does it automatically. All you need to do is download it and let it go!

If that’s not enough, you might also be interested in its auto-tagging features. That is, it automatically identifies locations, objects, persons, anything that it can identify in a picture, which makes it a lot easier for you to search for something and/or browse. From that, it also creates nice “stories” or collages based on similarities in pictures (same location, same date, etc.)

Oh… and it’s for free! And, many other features.
