This app is the best picture gallery that I have used. The auto backup feature is perfect for those who take a bunch of pictures but can't keep them on their phones and don't want to allow Facebook to have access to everything. Just used the auto-rotate feature and it flipped 10 photos for me at once... What a time saver and a great preventative when you are showing off your pics to your friends and family. Full Review

Great app to backup and organize preservable quality photos even with the free storage option. This is the only place where I backup my photos taken with my phone. I also backup photos from my desktop taken using my DSLR. The desktop uploader needs improvement though. It often fails to backup some photos. Also I use Lightroom to edit my DSLR raw photos, but there is no ways to upload the photos with Lightroom edits, the unedited raw photos get uploaded and you have to either edit those again using the photos app or you have to export edited photos from Lightroom and then upload to Google photos. Lightroom integration would be great. I love the auto organization, album and gif generation features of the photos assistant. Overall like the app. Lightroom integration will make me love the app. Full Review

I absolutely adore this app. It takes random photos and stylize them for me, photos that I might have overlooked before then. It takes photos and puts them into a collage, photos that I didn't even know what goes so good together. It also randomly reminds me of the past by showing me photos of the yesteryear!! Heck it even takes my receipt photos and puts them in its own folder for me because it knows, it really really knows! This app is okay good at what it does that it's almost creepy! I love it and I'm so glad to have finally started using it! Full Review

In general very useful and I really enjoy using it. However, very recently the app has problems opening shared photos. It just keeps loading forever but does not open the photos. It also doesn't show me the shared photos in the respective category within the app. Also, if I apply changes to my own pictures it does not save those changes but keeps on loading... This is not an issue in the browser app, but only on my smartphone. Using Nexus 5x with the most recent Android 8.1 update. Full Review

I no longer worry about losing pictures! They are all backed up, and can be accessed from any device! The app also makes fun animations, videos, and collages. You can search for pictures with keywords. The only thing that would make this better would be some type of face swap--taking a person's face from one picture and inserting it in to another. I have a big family, and it is hard for us to get a great picture where everyone is smiling and looking at the camera at the same time! Full Review

I wouldn't know what to do without my photos. My life is told and people tell me theirs when we share photographs. The assistant helps me to do practically everything. Really! I just give direction. Assistant does everything else. Don't forget! Free storage! I simply cannot say enough great things! Check it out and rest easy because its taken care of. My photos are safe. Full Review

I really do love that my pics are safe in one place! #1 rating its unbelievable how they make great moments out of your pics into either videos, collages, and or animation pics . Google really has made photos a whole new experience. Now if only I can get internet in my home I'd be set to print instead of paying Walgreens. Just love it would give them 10 stars..Thank you so much for making kewl video shorts, animations, Etc. Etc. for me especially of my pups..I love them all ! Full Review

Anything made by Google is going to be top notch. Especially on a Nexus device if the rumors are true about full resolution backups at no charge (for Nexus devices) Update several devices later. Even better on Pixel 2. Google is amazing with image intelligence. It creates awesome collages, movies and stylized additions to your photo library. When I look at a group of pictures, Google always picks the same ones I would have. Google sees smiles and eye contact in photos. Full Review

Perfect if you use your phone to take pictures...so basically ANYONE with a smartphone. Doesn't matter if you have an iPhone (heaven forbid) or the master race Android phones it just works. This will automatically make animations and stylized photos from pictures you've taken and help you organize your pictures better than anything else. It's a no brainer if you have a phone that you take pictures with!!! Full Review

I absolutely love google photo's. Where were you 30 years ago when i took all those pictures that i had to get developed and then put all those pictures in a album or box stashed somewhere. Mercy at the money you save me today. Please never leave me. Sounds like a marriage! Ok with me, till death do us part!!!! Full Review

They've made a couple large steps forward recently in my opinion. And since I have a pixel device I get unlimited storage at full HD. This is what I use instead of quicpick nowadays. The one thing I think that could be improved on is when photos are added is to have the ability to run the facial recognition feature as a utility on demand. And to be able to help train the AI by setting examples for a person's face. Great app though. I use it daily Full Review

I appreciate that you can log in anywhere and never have to worry about losing photos and video's. Only way it would be better is if it only allowed one copy of each photo. Could you apply a version of facial recognition to recognize copies and prevent the app from backing up multiple copies? I run into the issue of having to delete copies after I put the photo onto a new device and the app backs up the photo as a new one. Looking forward to a response from Google or an update either way does not change how I feel about the app. I still give it ???????????????????? Full Review

Dear developers, please add features of android gallery specifically creation of folders instead of album in the application without which it is very difficult to organise the photos. Creation of album doesnot make it search friendly it places photos in the same location originally. Then we need to do the sorting and organising work again what we had already done in gallery. Moreover, whenever new photos are added, the same doesn't assigned to the album automatically for which it was intended. This is complete waste of energy and patience. It will be better to copy the photos in the same way as it appeared in adroid gallery. Your album should be named automatically based on the folders of the users as they were appearing in their adroid gallery. Any new additions of photos then should be automatically assigned to the respective album to which it was added in the gallery. This will lessen replication of works. Full Review

AWESOMMMMEEEE!!!! THIS IS SO FREAKING CLUTCH TO HAVE OMG!!! I remember having my photos take up all of my phone's storage, and I never knew about it until this year actually. I remember 2 years ago when I had an iPhone 4 before making the switch that my photos and video wouldn't let me download apps anymore because of my storage(no offense to Apple). My phone broke and even though I had iCloud back up on, I lost about 1500 photos and videos. Having this, I can easily save my photos and videos without any worries. I personally love this app! 5 star! Full Review

Great app! Google has done an outstanding job with this one, and respected my privacy in the way it conservatively handles pics.....i.e., not plastered them all over Facebook or Hangouts, unbeknownst to me like other photo apps. Do people even realize how other apps "grab and plaster!!" their pics, all over in the most unintended manner, to everyone in contacts, bosses, co-workers, all Facebook friends, etc, and don't realize it? Nope, they sure don't! Lol. This app allows you to at least adjust who you share with. Full Review

First of all need to be faster on starting, I don't need to see its welcome page. Also I need more tools to edit photos such as resizing photos and add texts. And at the end I need more viewing options in different kinds of view albums. If these things be added to this app then I don't need any other photo galleries or editors. Full Review

The editing software on Google photos used to be great, now it's almost non-existent. They only provide the most basic editing functions. I hope that this is only a temporary omission. Is love to see Snapseed integrated into this app. Also, you need to include a way to make pictures private (and not the archiving feature)! Full Review

I am constantly breaking phones and losing pictures. Thanks to google photos I never loose anything. The assistant feature is awesome! And the panoramic with multiple pictures is very cool. Easy to use and free! You think it would be a cheap app with its freeness. Never had a bug and always runs perfect. Full Review

It's pretty easy to use. Makes animations, collages and albums out of the pictures its self. It does a good job! I look forward to seeing what its going to come up with next. Also let's you back up the pictures and videos easily and even automatically if you want. Then you can take them off your phone if you want. Full Review

Itsthis feature was a struggle for me at first not being a women who mingled with technology often period. However something changed in its features recently that have captivated me in a most extrodinary way.. I discovered there is no requirement of infinite knowledge to enjoy the perks and pleasures of Google photos. You can't go wrong with this app. Thanks! I love it Full Review

Love it, aside from two things. It would be lovely if there were an option to automatically archive pictures after adding them to albums... And the back up feature is a little sloppy. I have to go through and delete duplicates constantly. Other than that, I guess you could say I'm a Google convert. I use somewhere around 60% of the apps Google offers. Oh and video editing would be awesome, too. Full Review

I know this helps keep All my photos synced to my device. This app stores all my memories, also for any changes to all photos, collage (needs improvement for putting together) while these photos are used, I would prefer the collage, then put together in as a video. This is the only thing about the app I Don't approve of. As for Editing them is an issue, also. Otherwise, I do (approve the photos app) Could you please have Music available for these. That would be nice. The app could use And needs different styles of music to be offered for these videos. Is there a way to add our own music to them? This fix would be a Huge plus. Also video with so much more! Thank You! I enjoy using it while your improving to Be better. Google photos has many options to choose from with 15 GB FREE storage! I did remove the Old storage. All cleared up. (BTW, I am smarter than the app) ???? Full Review

This is a really superb app for me to free up space and securely back up all of my media on my phone. Only thing that you need to improve is the management of the albums. Please remove the image on photos tab once I move it on an album like it does on archive. Full Review

Google Photos has come a long way since day 1. I would say it's one of Google's best products in a while. Unlimited high quality photos is fine for just about everyone, and Pixel users get a couple years of unlimited full storage. It's enough to get me to buy a Pixel again. But the biggest benefit is the AI. How well it works finding things by context, in addition to the nice touches like "remember this day". And it is cross platform with iOS. Granted, there's a scary AI aspect of identifying things by computer.... Full Review

Who doesn't use this app?! It's amazing, it saves you time and it's A.I. has amazing capabilities (although I predict it will be better in the future). I can get my images from my laptop, from my phone, from my iPad; making it varsatile as the app allows you to access all your information from any Operating System. Full Review

Edit: Newest review, much improved editing features. I still wish it had all of Allos features. _____________________________ Old Editing photos is not only difficult now, but missing features. Google wants you to download a different app for that I guess... but I don't want to open up 5 different apps just to adjust colors or add text. Full Review

I can not express how grateful I am for this app. Especially when one phone stops working completely and you have to get a new phone.

It uploads all my photos. Never skips any. I also actually really enjoy the assistant showing me photos from today on years past. It's fun to relive memories. My only very small gripe is that sometimes there are duplicate photos shown in the app: one that is still on my device storage and one that has been backed up to Google photos already. Not a huge deal, but if my memory serves me right, Google claimed to deal with the duplicate photos issue with its AI. So just one star off for not delivering in that respect. Otherwise, GREAT app!

I love how they edit things for you and also create movies with the photos you've taken along with adding music into the background. Additionally they also make it really easy to share you photos, movies and videos with other people. You can even have a partner account to share photos between the two even easier than before.

I love this app! I definitely rely on this app and my Google Drive. Without them I don't know where or if I would even still have all of my pictures. Now sometimes they duplicate themselves and that's pretty aggravating especially because I have somewhere around 4,000 pictures and videos saved but in general I enjoy this (these) app(s) because I can access my photos from almost anywhere and from any internet capable device!
