Dee Hawkins on 9/25/2017
This app is the most valuable one in my phone because I can delete all the photos out of my phone and they will still be available in google photos. Great job guys you really did it with this one 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾🎉🎊🎉🎊
Functionality and automation and organization
UPLIFTI on 9/25/2017
If you need those things get this app. Plus the do all this cutesy collages and movies once you label people and places and stuff. Really fun.
Second to none and completely free!

I love the app. It's way better than google drive. I have unlimited storage and my phone never gets full. Soon as I take a pic it automatically backs-up to my google photos app. Can't complain at all.

If I had to delete every other app on my phone this is the one I would keep (plus camera. Ok, two apps). Anyway, this app is the best. It sent me the sweetest video today called "they grow up so fast" with random video highlights of my child over the last few years. a+++
Is this real?
Jsbckamfvjslrhcbc on 9/25/2017
This app is super cool and works quite well. Also it’s FREE!

Awesome app! All my pics and all memory awesome!!!
Videos and pictures don't always upload
bnc620 on 9/25/2017
I often have to uninstall and reinstall the app, and some pictures and videos still will not up and download. Pictures that were loaded disappear or do not appear on other devices. Be careful.

Nowak Jakub on 9/25/2017
Always been great but as of the last update it seems the ability to share photo via text message has been removed????
Awesome instant albums and animations

I love it! Its very helpful with storage 😅
Great Pic Storage
RavenCpu on 9/25/2017
I use this app to access all of my pictures from any device. It also allows me to keep my phone memory low since I don’t have to keep pictures and video on it. All of my nee photos and video are automatically uploaded to Google Photos once I have access to wifi.
F4t4LisS on 9/25/2017
No complaints really. One of the best app made by google. Useful, easy to use, free. Great.
Love google photos!
LHGinWC on 9/25/2017
Awesome app!
Joseph84829355 on 9/25/2017
So on iOS 11 if I use "Full Size" then my HEIF photos will use less space on Google's servers and that will count against my Drive quota, but if I use "High Quality" then my photos will be converted to JPEG and end up using more server resources and yet they will not count against my Drive quota. Rite?
Love it!!
Sea-Chele on 9/25/2017
So easy and i love sharing photos!!
Still waiting
Marie0806 on 9/25/2017
I downloaded this app 2-3 days ago and it's still backing up my photos.. why the hell is it taking so long!!!
Unlimited Free Storage with Intelligent Search
Aaron J Garcia on 9/25/2017
Google Photos sets the standard for what a photo app should be. Unlimited free storage for compressed images and a spot on perfect intelligent search feature; can’t beat it. I’d like to see more shared library options, auto archive receipts & ex-girlfriends and direct posting to Facebook & Instagram.
Effective Storage
Fandengo on 9/25/2017
User friendly, collects all the photos I want in one place, and easy to access from anywhere with internet access.
Sometimes explaining something clearly is not explaining it nearly clear enough…
Clinkerkid on 9/25/2017
You know that message that pops up when using Google Photos, “Moving this item to the trash will also remove it from Google Drive?” Actually, I think it used to be even more sweeping than that, like “deleting this picture here will delete it everywhere.” Yeah, well, Google should also have said something like “if you move photos from the ‘Google Photos’ desktop folder into other desktop folders managed by Drive, those moved photos WILL STILL BE DELETED if trashed in the mobile app. go find those photos.” I gotta wonder how many memories I accidentally erased thinking they were safe because they had been moved out of the photos folder... Do you find this review kind of confusing and hard to understand? Good, then I’ve made my point.
Awesome way to keep up with memories!

The best I've used
Vow2LivHoly on 9/25/2017
With the age we are living in, having a surplus of photos is inevitable! So I love that I can store as many as I have, for free, with easy access! You captured my heart forever with this! Thank you! The easy share features are a plus as well! I am constantly referring others to use this app when they confront storage issues with their photos! M. Lake

Must have! Easy to use and reliable!
