The official Google Photos app is made for the way that you take photos today and includes essential features, such as shared albums, automatic creations and an advanced editing suite. Additionally every Google Account comes with 15 GB of free storage and you can choose to automatically back up all your photos and videos in high quality or original quality. You can then access them from any connected device and on photos.google.com.
With the official app, you get:
FREE STORAGE: Back up 15 GB of photos and videos for free and access them from any device and photos.google.com – your photos are safe, secure and private to you. All photos and videos that you back up in high quality before 1 June 2021 will not count toward your Google Account storage.
FREE UP SPACE: Never worry about running out of space on your phone again. Photos that are safely backed up can be removed from your device’s storage in just a tap.
SMART AUTOMATIC ALBUMS: Automatically get a new album with just your best shots after an event or trip, then invite others to add their photos.
AUTOMATIC CREATIONS: Bring photos to life with automatically created movies, collages, animations, panoramas and more from your photos. Or easily create them yourself.
ADVANCED EDITING SUITE: Transform photos with a tap. Use intuitive and powerful photo editing tools to apply content-aware filters, adjust lighting and more.
SHARING SUGGESTIONS: With smart sharing suggestions, giving your friends the photos you took of them is painless. And they can add their photos, too, so you’ll finally get the photos that you’re actually in.
FAST AND POWERFUL SEARCH: Your photos are now searchable by the people, places and things in them – no tagging required.
LIVE ALBUMS: Select the people and pets that you want to see and Google Photos will automatically add photos of them as you take them, no manual updates needed.*
PHOTO BOOKS: Create a photo book in just minutes from your phone or computer. You can also see suggested photo books based on your best shots from a trip or period of time.*
GOOGLE LENS: Search the hard-to-describe and get stuff done, right from a photo. Copy and translate text, identify plants and animals, add events to your calendar, find products online and more.
SEND PHOTOS IN SECONDS: Instantly share photos with any contact, email or phone number.
SHARED LIBRARIES: Grant a trusted person access to all of your photos.
You can also upgrade storage for your Google Account, used for original quality photos and videos by subscribing to Google One. Subscriptions start at $1.99/month for 100 GB in the US. Pricing and availability can vary by region.
We are changing our unlimited high quality storage policy. From 1 June 2021, any new photos and videos that you upload in high quality will count toward your Google Account storage. All photos and videos that you back up in high quality before 1 June 2021 are exempt from this change and will not count toward your Google Account storage.
