Google photos opened a whole new world for me many different things that I never even imagined possible to do and my phone with so many different choices how to stylize a photo how to send a photo easy to choose the photos you want to send to friends and they get it in and they just love receiving the photos to Google Photos and I just can't say enough about it I love it, if you haven't got it yet you need to get it because you're missing out on a bunch of beautiful options to do with the photo

I was able to save an embarrassing video of my brother singing eye of the tiger with a stretched out ball of dough over his eyes

Phenomenal picture app!
App crashes
Kayydub on 7/21/2017
I have used this app with absolutely no complaints since I first heard about it. Now I can't even open the app to look for an old photo without it crashing. Every. Single. Time. Can we get an update with bug fixes so I can actually use the app again? I'm pretty disappointed at this point.
Fantastic app
Hossain Monir on 7/21/2017
This app is very much useful, hassle free and easy to use. Your most valuable photos can be aligned here .
So easy to use and platform independent
Steven_Kapcoe on 7/21/2017
I enjoy using it and i like the stylized photos. Sometimes it is amazing, sometimes not so much, but the option of seeing your pictures in a different motif is really cool! I like it!

Love it
Good app for backing up photos - Movie Options Need Help
Jmam7642 on 7/21/2017
Great app for backing up and centralizing photos. "Assistant" features for movies are far behind of other apps such as Facebook and the iPhone's Photos app.
Tcarli on 7/21/2017
App excelente
Wen Griffin on 7/21/2017
Year in, year out, this app never fails me. Stores all my pics, shows me this day last year. The assistant makes some great stylized versions of my shots.
daddurl40 on 7/21/2017
Great app
Good but needs help
Apple7446 on 7/21/2017
I really do like Google photos and I am very reliant on it to save room on my phone. I like the functionality and really do love the assistant. The problem is it takes up too much space on my phone. I have to keep deleting it and then getting it anew. They need to figure out some better caching method so the app takes up less room on the phone.

Love google photos all I use now

Jason3647 on 7/21/2017
Everything works as expected. Not sure if sync happens when the app is closed tho. Could be nice if that was clearer.

Top !!! bon travail
Best photo app
Rocky Justice on 7/21/2017
Most photo viewers are all the same. Click a photo open a photo blah blah. This is amazing because the assistant makes videos and collages for you! It reminds you of special days like Facebook and it's overall just a great app. All my friends ask how I keep making movies and now I tell them
The absolute best photo app.

Takes forever to back up
Great alternative for photo backup
Anxious momma on 7/21/2017
Love that all my photos and documents link to my email account! Always works well and is quick. Extra bonus is it does almost all the work for you when it comes to freeing up space in your phone (in regard to photos and videos)
Coolest app!
Santasha on 7/21/2017
Love this app so much, thank you, Google! One wish: if I dismiss a clip, please don't suggest it (the same one) again:). Natasha
Love it!

Makes my photos even better
That computer guy 1212 on 7/21/2017
Google Photos' effects make my photos look even better than me the originals. It also makes it a breeze to organize them and make movies and collages out of them. It is easier to use than Apple Photos.
ky-ka on 7/21/2017
Love love looooooooove google photos!!! It has saved my life!!
LMSM2015 on 7/21/2017

Love Google photos
Retired 51 on 7/21/2017
Google photos is great. No need to clutter phone because pictures are automatically backed up to all my devices. Ordered photo books too they're great.
Basics, just the basics.
PoorDan on 7/21/2017
Google again does a pretty good job with delivery if the basics in a solid and useable way. The UI makes more sense to me than the apple product equivalents. But Google always leaves you wanting for a few more "should have" features.
Best Photo Storage App
Chellycollins on 7/21/2017
I love Google photos! Love the animations, movies and collages! It's even made me some amazing panoramic photos out of multiple photos I've shot that are pretty amazing. It is by far my favorite app.
free storage yes!
JAYNENYAMNYAM on 7/21/2017
i love it ! it saves all your photos and it's great because you'll never have to run out of storage in your phone!!
Freaking Amazing & FREEEEEEE!!!!!!!
zrevai on 7/21/2017
Freaking Amazing & FREEEEEEE!!!!!!! The included feature set is amazing, the Animations, Videos, Collages, and Albums the Assistant can build automagically are better than most things I have spent hours or days editing!!!!!!! Oh and if you let Google store your photos in a high quality mode you get UNLIMITED FREE STORAGE!!!!!!
