The online storage is already awesome. Add the organization of photos, the animation made from multiple shots, slide shows, Google just made life a little bit easier for me. Thank you.

My phone reset and I thought I lost all of my pictures 😪Google photos had me covered because they automatically back up any photo or video.
LOVE Google Photos!!!
MMMD1313 on 1/23/2018
Not only are all of my photos and videos backed up automatically when I open the app, but it makes me collages and animations with my photos and so can I! I can tag a face and it remembers who it is, or I can have location on and it remembers where pictures were taken! I can search with keywords to find old ones, it’s just got everything I want and need!
Photos forever saved

Lost photos
Girl1455 on 1/22/2018
I’m pretty upset with google photos. I’ve been using this app since 2011 and I was loving it but I recently changed phones and google photos didn’t save a ton of my pictures. It jumped around from today to December 30 2017 to August 8 2017 with nothing in between. I was devastated... many memories lost. Just sad 😥
Great Storage + app

Time stamp issues are infuriating
Paula & Kelly on 1/22/2018
I’m really tired of the time stamps changing in my photos and it screwing up the order in which things appear. This has been going on for many people for a long time.

Wonderful photo app
Bschrib on 1/22/2018
I’ve been using this since it came out, first on android and now on iOS. It’s always been terrific and somehow it keeps getting better. I’m sincerely thankful to all of the wonderful developers at Google who make this app. It’s been wonderful having it intelligently modify and create various photos and videos all automatically.
Love this app!

clisindeals on 1/22/2018
Easy to use. A great free google product. Would like to have a duplicate purge option also when pics are added to a folder would be nice to have them removed from general photo storage.
