Just need to ask what kind of memories you want Need a map with all the pictures like iCloud Otherwise perfect A must have
fabulous and great

Most convenient way to securely back up all your precious photographs and video and saves on your google drive. I have chosen to go unlimited but that means my image quickly will be downsized however if you choose you want the same quality that’s easy they can do that tell a d automatically all photographs will go without a needed reminder immediately synced to your drive
Two thumbs way up for storage
iluv2sing401 on 2/19/2018

Suhyeong on 2/19/2018
This is one of the best photo apps I have ever used. So cool! You don't have to worry about the capacity of your smartphone.
Credo12 on 2/19/2018
We would like the freedom to arrange our albums the way we want to weather alphabetically randomly or by date. The by date system is too confusing and too much of a waste of time to think about and to use to my benefit. You must river to the pic casa system of allowing someone to list their albums the way they want another pre-determined way that Google has decided.
Great alternative to iCloud!

Best app ever.

Use this app to store, organize and share all my pictures, no matter which camera I use.
Easy way to keep your phone memory clear
hd711 on 2/19/2018
There's a lot of things I like about the iOS app and the Chrome experience on desktop, but my absolute fav part of the mobile app is the "free up space" option from the menu.

Me parece buenísima
Not good for videos
SGtoday on 2/19/2018
When try to watch the old videos again, I see it downloading for a long time and never starts. Even 1 min long videos. It makes it useless for videos big I cannot watch them again

Great app
jimmythecdawg on 2/19/2018
Love the ability to group by recognized faces. Still trying to figure out what device I should run it on. My iPad haslimited storage and I also have a folder in my Google drive for photos and wondering if I need both.
So great

The assistant feature is so fun! This app is my new go-to for photos-storage, editing, movie making, and animations.

Photo input
Gunny Dillon on 2/19/2018
This app has been getting my photos only when I am in the app. Six thousand plus to go! This will have to be completed when I’m dead and gone at this rate.
Share button is dismissing / removing cards
herbieenos on 2/19/2018
I just noticed the current version is dismissing / removing cards when I click Share icon. This just wiped out a great collage which I had not saved to my Library. It also wipes out a cool animation of my son’s soccer goal shot. Please help to fix.
Stop sending me notifications

Nice app for backing up photos but it sends nonsense notifications just to get me to login
Amazing app

Haven’t had not one problem with app and the interface is very well designed, no problems at all.
Sharing Photo’s Suuuuck!
Dumb app1234 on 2/19/2018
I have to constantly reset my network, power phone on/off or delete app and reinstall to add photos to existing albums or to make album to share. Even if it’s only “ONE” photo! 😡 Exhausting and frustrating. I don’t have these issues with other photo apps as I need to share albums on a daily basis for work. Plus I have a strong connection to internet couple with a new iPhone 7plus which I test the speed and still won’t upload without the above noted. Thumbs down!!🙄
Brings joy and organization, peace of mind!
CCH on 2/19/2018
I’m so grateful for this app. Not only does it automatically back up my photos (for free?!), but also reminds me of memories in the past and automatically puts together awesome collages and movies from my collection. Also has impressive face recognition!
Magical Effects
ARodriguezSoto on 2/19/2018
Reluctant to give Google more of my info, I finally launched Google Photos and discovered that my plain old photos turned into magical memories. Given that google already knows everything about one’s life, having the result was just great.

Love it! So easy to use and share photos!
So far so good!
Snhlive on 2/19/2018
As long as I can always access my photos I will be so happy. My phone is always almost out of room and I never have enough space in the cloud. This gives me a reason to finally be able to leave apple :) UPDATE: 4stars: It takes so very long to download photos. The app has been at average of 500 photos behind in downloading photos since I installed the app. (6 months)
Love it
onland11 on 2/19/2018

This is a must use app

Best photo app for organizing.

Useful when it works
chaseinaustin on 2/19/2018
Was working like a charm for a while, then one day after the backup was complete I went in to ‘Free up space’. It just sat there saying ‘Finding items already backed up’ then just stops without deleting anything. Tried multiple times without success. Now I have to uninstall and reinstall the app once a month to allow me to delete the images. While useful, it’s not very practical.
Nabilah Simat on 2/18/2018
It’s quite slow when i upload videos. It’s been like 3 days all of my videos haven't been fully stored in google photos. Am i doing something wrong?
