New experience with Google Photos
Nifdoow on 11/19/2017
Am enjoying learning this app as I upload photos from my computer. The face recognition is a lot of fun; so are the suggested features in Assistant. I’m new at it, so time will tell.
Changed my road trip for the better
happyroadtrippertab on 11/19/2017
I was having to delete photos I thought I could live without while on a road trip from AZ, UT, to NV and back because I kept getting the "storage full" message and my iPhone wouldn't let me take more pictures. Luckily a friend told me about the app and it saved my pictures without me having to sacrifice deleting photos I would have rather kept. So happy to have found this cloud based app. Once photos are uploaded to this app I could safely delete the photos from my phone (the app actually can take care of that process for you so you don't spend hours picking out which ones were already backed up and which ones aren't yet. 5 stars hands down.

Good app.
Kalista Marie on 11/18/2017
It is really nice to be able to have a place that will allow you to have all of your photos backed up to google while also being able to delete photos from your phone.
Keeps trying to back up old photos
Kalerohn on 11/18/2017
The app continually runs in the background and drains battery attempting to back up photos that are already backed up.
Use it for work and personal

Squirt206 on 11/18/2017
This app is amazing! Getting ready to teach it to a group of grandmothers who have lots of pictures on their phones. So many wonderful changes. I have to keep up!

This app will instantly save your photos to here. It’s a life saver because, you don’t have to keep deleting your photos because of storage! ❤️
anonymous934 on 11/18/2017
Would rate 5, but I can't make a photo my wallpaper within the app - I have to go back to the stick photo app.
Best photo app I’ve seen.
Ajbutterfield on 11/18/2017

Petzoldt_pride on 11/18/2017
Can't believe how much I love this app. I use it everyday!! It's like no other. The only thing I would like to see different is that I would be able to print from here! Otherwise it's AWESOME 👍
Best thing that ever happened to photos
ChandranPaul on 11/18/2017
We take lot of pictures and I was always worried about losing them. Thanks to this app they are safely backed up. Also they are tagged which helps in quick search by person, time, place or subject. The AI is apparent in the movies it creates(gives the shivers). Overall a great product. Hope google keeps the product(big concern as lot of products have been sunset).
Picture enhancing at its best!
Chan0101 on 11/18/2017
So many styles and ideas to add life to your photos!
So easy
Sfrechette on 11/18/2017
Love that I can easily share photos with people individually or in bulk without being restricted to an album. I also love the Google Assistant feature.
Unlimited space ‼️‼️‼️
Di-007 on 11/18/2017

Great app!
MuzzacLover on 11/18/2017
Google Photos: Thanx Google!

4untico on 11/18/2017
Love how it constantly updates all my pictures and backs them up. Nothing like having something go wrong with your phone and loosing all your pictures. Amazing peace of mind .

Love this backup app, and I love Google for the free storage and features. Makes a nice addition to my piece of mind!
Phenomenal app for cloud storage of your photos
Mistir.b on 11/18/2017
All skepticism and conspiracy theories aside about having your personal data in the cloud... It’s incredible how accurate the facial recognition is not just in photos but your videos. It makes looking back through your photos for specific memories so easy and on that note makes it so easy to make photos books, which google offers, and share memories. My wife uses Shutterfly to make photo books and this still makes it fairly easy to just find the photos we want, download them to our smartphone or computer, then upload to Shutterfly via the web browser or their app. This app does so much more than just recognize faces and organize by date; google photos recognizes (types of) places and things which gives even more granular way of finding memories.

Great App To Use To Free Up Space On My Phone!!!
Love this app!
itsbrittneylyn on 11/18/2017
This app makes it so easy to free up the storage on my phone. It prompts me to delete the items out of my albums that have been safely backed up. Very easy to use and access your photos from a computer.
Clawnsby on 11/18/2017
Incredible app-- very useful and fun!
Love it!!!
Musicgirlsb on 11/18/2017
I love you this app!!! They organize my pictures, create wonderful videos, archives anything at a touch of a button. Backs up my pictures automatically from my phone!!!
Tops all photos apps
Cat_napper on 11/18/2017
Keeps everything off your device safely in the cloud. No reduced size photos are left on your device that would still take up precious storage space on your phone. Best of all its free with unlimited cloud storage.
I never write reviews

I love, love, love google photos! Didn’t know how much until I finished looking at the movies and collages that automatically created for me. Best application ever
Love it!
doglover9754 on 11/18/2017
Personally, I love the app. It allows me to have all the photos I want on my 16 gig phone without having to run out of space. Most of all, I love how you can still access all the photos even without WiFi. I would recommend this to anyone who runs out of space on their device very often and fast.
Getting better
LadyMahan on 11/18/2017
I'm a Google fan. I've been using everything google since they started. I have seen great improvements in this app! I use it everyday for my work.
Reinkejohn4 on 11/17/2017
How is this average 5 star rating??? This stupid app automatically removes random photos from my albums and sometimes the name of some albums randomly disappears... This happens even after I delete photos off my phone.. Thanks for nothing! I trust this app when I should not have... Nice work google! What do your code writers really do on the clock at work??
Best app

I am just now exploring Google Assistant and all the bells and whistles, so far, I’m sorry I didn’t start using this sooner! Where have you been all my life and I’m no spring chicken either. Thanks for always bringing easy to use applications I love.
