  1. Sheana Coss-avatar

    I have always had pretty good luck with Google photos and not loosing them. I absolutely love my pictures and I am able to take all the pictures that I want and just automatically back them up in my Google photos with my Google account. I am always breaking my phones and having to get a new one, so by backing them up right away, I never loose my photos. So that's a huge deal for me!!

  2. Woody 404-avatar

    app I mean, i love it, i love the ideas with the faces and all and the feature that faces and dogs get automatically put together, but it doesn't work properly, like some faces work, there are a few pictures of them in it, but it skipped a lot of pictures and it doesn't even update if i take ned pictures it's really not that good, come on google i know you guys can make this better, google photos could be a great app! And when it works like sit should be working i'll change this to 5 stars

  3. Cándido González Rodríguez-avatar

    download I absolutely love it. The way it merges the photos by face. Amazing! I just want to know is why you all haven't put a "Select all' options. I have an album that I don't want to have and want to remove all its photos out of it and organize it on another one but I cannot do it... Plus, I don't know what to do to make the app recognizes similar faces. Please, help.

  4. Julie Rose-avatar

    löschen One Plus 6t Android 10 - "Add a Description" is buggy. Sometimes you can access the field. Most of the time it is not even visible. Sometimes a Description on one photo duplicates to other photos. When I attempt to delete the incorrect Descriptions Google Photos crashes. Searches on previously input Descriptions aren't working. Previously input Descriptions have disappeared.

  5. Dwain Gurley-avatar

    login The people section is a joke. Constantly asking for confirmation that doesn't change anything except my blood pressure. In two days it's right back to the same thing. A suggestion: Do away w/ people, things, and every NEW idea you geniuses dream up. Go for the basics, get them right and see if anybody misses any of the bs someone thinks is entertainment. Constant upgrading means failure. Not success.

  6. Clarence del Rosario-avatar

    Clarence del Rosario


    download all Thank you Google for making this app and letting us use it for free. I mean, the free backup of the photos as long as it's in its high quality is very generous of you guys! I'm so thankful as a person and as a consumer of your products. Can you add a feature where the photos that are taken each month will automatically turn into an album? (e.g. Dec 2019 Photos, Jan 2020 Photos) So that we don't have to search one by one and scroll through hundreds of photos just to find for a specific one. :)

  7. Eranga Herath-avatar

    kosten I love most of features with Google Photos such as anual reminders, GIF animations, creative photo editings. Sorting in albums make much convenient to see the past photos. I'm having 3 children and the video animation "They grow up fast" impressed me to see how the things are changing very fast. Google Photos - Simply the best !! 💞💞💞

    backup This app is really amazing! I have loved it but had a few problems, I'll update in a week if fixed or better. (If my photo is in an album and I want to export it, I need to be connected to WiFi, however if the photo should be kept on the phone so it loads, because most of the time, even on wifi, it is just "downloading" the picture for minutes until my patience runs out. Fix these sharing and saving issues. Especially once I retouch photos, I would want them to save rather than disappear.

  9. Ryan-avatar

    herunterladen I use this app on the regular and when it functions, it really is a great tool. I've recently noticed that there are glitches when connecting multiple pixel devices to the same Gmail account. Which doesn't allow devices to backup and view videos properly. Google support suggested I write a review noting this.

  10. Laurentiu Veliscu-avatar

    Laurentiu Veliscu


    alternative I pay a lot of money and the backup is very slow or on hold most of the time comparing with years ago when was immediately.I can't take anymore pictures because my phone is always full, I have to wait for days to backup the photos and empty the storage.I pay for the cloud but is not efficient in this way.Sometimes I prefer to discard the pictures on the laptop because I have to use the phone with no backup to the cloud.

  11. Matthew Steven-avatar

    I wish they made Google Photos more like Samsung Gallery. The photos are too jumbled and mixed together. If you upload a group of new photos that you wanted separate, then you open Google photos, there should be a folder that allows you to separate the old from what you just uploaded. Currently there is not, and it mixes all photos new and old together, making it a very long and tedious process selecting one at a time to get the photos you just uploaded to a separate folder.

  12. Abhay Kumar-avatar

    Never ever an app can irritate and dissappoint like this! Nothing is better than this, amd nothing is worst than this app. It's been a whole month and I still can't backup simply woth this app. Always "getting your photos", or if lucky, app will stop showing images that should be backup (talking about camera photos).

  13. James Wong Wei Loon-avatar

    Not useful at all.. Even though back up and save to the google photo then when i delete the photo from my device the copy of google photo will delete as well, means i had to keep a copy on the phone at the same time, then how am i gonna free up space for the phone. Plus still not functioning well, as when i click on the so called new photo it just went blank. The upload speed also slow.. Really useless..

  14. Vladimir Tonkonogov-avatar

    Photos & Library tabs are essentially the same thing. Why confuse people??? With the new update, I can no longer say or share rediscover this day album collage cover photos. What a shame. All I have is a google lens button. To help me do what? Discover where I can buy again the things that are shown on those photos? Pathetic attempt to gain more money that's what it is. Edit: with new redesign the product is getting harder and harder to use. Minus 5 stars.

  15. tap burnham-avatar

    Over the years I've stored a lot of photos in this app. I was looking looking for one a while back, and it wasn't there... did I panic? No I asked Google... and Google's server spit it right out. It's nice to know that there's a bunch of Smart Guys sitting in an office "or maybe at home during these times!" Whose job it is to keep old idiots like me from screwing everything up. I've been to the end of the simulation. And I've seen the source code... it had the Google trademark on it!

    Whenever I download or anyone sends me a pic or video, it goes and gets saved on the day it was created by the third party. I mean it should be latest in mine as I just found and got it. I'm having to go around and search for them. Sometimes 2 year's back . Please make it to take the day I got it on my phone. This is ridiculous. Or you can avail an option where its up to the user to keep a setting that way...

    beautiful experience on android phone (been using this since 2016 early i guess). uploads are seamless and does not shut down when i switch apps. uses this mainly to store my photo and, my world, it has advanced tech to detect face (i dont mind tho, its free!). would be nice if can tag someone even if app cannot detect their face.

    Hello guys great app but there's just one flaw for me. It is impossible to access the albums I create whenever I want to select a picture from that album. I'll need to go through the long process of trying to remember which I saved the picture and that's not good for me. If there is a way you can allow albums saved on web to integrate with device folders that would be a huge plus. Think about it. Thank you.

    My wife has an iPhone and I am an Android user and we can't share photos or videos without losing a significant amount of pixels in quality though our respective messaging apps so we figured we would use Google photos. I tried to share with her and it says a Gmail doesn't exist for her email. She signed in and her personal info has her phone number and correct Gmail. Tried by phone number and still couldn't get it. She tried to share with me and the same issue occurred.

    Unreliable. Descriptions constantly disappear and are unsearchable. Auto-tagging abysmal. Face recognition inconsistent with no "real" manual face tagging. Doesn't distinguish between sub-folders in the DCIM folder so can't stop uploads of Facebook, screenshots, etc. The biggest problem though is how slow it is - when searching for something it only provides the cloud backup version and not local so when sharing it REDOWNLOADS the content already locally stored. That's insane..

  21. Urmila Sharma-avatar

    I really enjoy this aap but I think this app should have one another facility , Sometimes I need to create a playlist in this app But sometimes my playlist gets mess up Because there is modified by time and I want modification by alphabets… I thought many peoples facing this problem ,Therefore I requesting you of adding this feature for us

  22. Olga Pavlova-avatar

    I turn the backup off and still it's uploading photos from my phone. I don't want that. I just want to see the photos I specifically upload to Google Photos (and I don't see them!), not all random pictures from my phone. Ridiculous app. Shame it can not be deleted from my phone.

  23. Martin Zakes-avatar

    The Motorola Gallery that was removed from my phone was a lot easier and more intuitive to use. My previous rating for Google photos has also disappeared for some reason, but I still find it to be pretty awful. For example, the steps it takes to rotate a picture takes a ridiculous amount of effort/time; or when moving a pic into a gallery, in google photos the pic stays in the original camera roll. I shouldn't even have to rotate most of my pics, but for some reason Google rotates them.

  24. Steven-avatar

    Can't delete photos from the app/cloud without it deleting them from your phone. I want to clear out photos that aren't important enough to back up but that I still want to have on my phone, but they don't allow it so that you are forced to buy more storage for a monthly fee. Such a dumb setup

  25. Mohd Danish-avatar

    Photos was working fine on my phone till January but after that images won't backup & the "getting ready to backup" is showing everytime...cleared cache, storage but after that the "getting your photos" isn't going away...tried god knows how many methods but still it's like this everytime...has to eventually stop backup/disable photos coz it's hugely draining the battery (upto 40%)...Very poor performance 😔

  26. Sebastian Scott-avatar

    Sebastian Scott


    Best photo storage service I've used. Integrates nicely with my device and allows for unlimited photo uploads if you select the "High quality" option. If you need to save your photos at their original resolution it'll work fine but it will count toward your data quota.

  27. MARY CATT-avatar

    Nothing beats this; it's really awesome! I wish there was an easier way to make copies of my photos off of my phone without going to Walmart, bc I have no way of going. I'm an elderly lady with chronic health problems & my M.D. told me to stay in, since I'm in fragile health. Stay safe & God Bless.

  28. Rajesh Kumar-avatar

    This app has so many bugs. And this app works very slow even when Internet is good. Idk why this is happening but when i reset my phone, i used to log in as usual in Google and when i open this app it only shows "Getting your photos". Please fix this and make this app a little bit fast man.

  29. Ian Vergel Cuevas-avatar

    Ian Vergel Cuevas


    Great app, there so many tricks, tools included, powerful software functionalities under the hood, plus you can actually store your photos in a cloud and this is game changer for me. Plus I really like the auto-update album feature of it. It's make your life a lot easier 😉

  30. Richard Kimble-avatar

    This app is horrible! The app I had on my other phone was much better! Here are the main reasons: (1) The photos are not in ABC order in the album just randomly placed where you have to scroll all over to find it (2) The number of images you have in an album is not shown (3) When you export files from another source it doesn't keep the same name for most of them. Why? (4) You are not given the option of changing the name of the photo is you chose to. DITCH THE SCREEN MESSAGE! F- grade given!

  31. NT786-avatar

    Stop with the Fake Updates DAMN! Are you kidding me?! 3 updates Back to back in 5 days Yet No Fix?! READ THE FEEDBACKS UGH! Broken and Buggy since February. Fix it for real Now Please... Pictures Get out of the album. Album Creation not working. Slow Upload Speed. Editing not Working. Even after manually Keeping pics in album. they get out of it! PATHETIC- i feel like a Dog now... you are making me bark so much.

  32. Robert Mathieson-avatar

    Robert Mathieson


    A new issue one has emerged. Since the last 4 updates I can not always edit photos in the app. This is a serious issue for me as I use it frequently each day. The dreaded circle of death arrives when I press Save. The editing and saving processes are inconsistent and either freeze, slow down or fail to work. At other times they may work as designed. This is enormousley frustrating so i'm going to be examining other photo apps. Hoping to find a more consistently performing app.

    One feature we all would like is the photographed memories that appear suddenly making us nostalgic & take us a few years back....we would even not find such moments in the current gallery of our present mobile... It is really an awesome experience portrayed perfectly with our emotions memorized by Google photos... Great one & Thanks

  34. Charlie-avatar

  35. Monica S-avatar

    For example, if you want an OLD picture as a Facebook profile picture, it's very difficult to do so using Google photos. If you go through Facebook, it's hard to find such an old picture, since everything is sorted by date. If you go through Google photos, it gives you can option to share directly to Facebook as a new post, but not as a profile picture. That's why there should be a option to "promote" pictures to most recent, so that they are easier to find.

  36. Kayleigh Culbert-avatar

    Kayleigh Culbert


    This app has been pretty awesome as far as accessing photos, organization, and the creative aspects! Some of the suggested edits are goofy, but overall there is a lot of cool stuff you can do to photos. I also enjoy the "rediscover this day" feature. It's fun to see what you've been up to on a specific date in the past without scrolling endlessly or searching folders. I haven't gone too in depth, but the stuff I have come across is neat!

  37. Mathews George-avatar

    This is my go-to for backing up photos.But 3 stars for there is an issue when saving the edited videos. I chose the stabilization and it showed me the stabilized preview but it shows 'unable to save changes' when I opt to save it. Kindly,do fix this issue. And you guys did a good job making this a viable backup service for android phones.

  38. Tania-avatar

    It's the first time I'm giving an app 5 stars, so well done Google! 😃 It's great to be able to create cool effects, gifs, videos with your photos. Also amazing how you can quickly find photos by location or keyword. I know, Google knows everything now. Let's just hope they keep the security measurements up. Oh, I particularly like the assistant in Google photos.

  39. Mandeep Singh-avatar

    I have dual audio movies and I wanna to change audio but they is no any option for audio track. So I can't change audio language. Please fix this problem as soon as possible. Wanna multiple accounts in sharing library also. Wanna colour pop In photos editing time. Getting photo take too much time. Wanna fingerprint to unlock the App. Wanna dark mode

  40. Claudiu Blajan-avatar

    This application is terrible. It is the 100th time I delete a photo (also from trash) and it reappears. Not to mention how sluggish this app is. The only reason I still keep it is because the Photos service is relatively reliable (or at least so far).

  41. ZayZay Prinxs-avatar

    The best! It even lets me make movies, animations colleges, etc! I love how you can edit your photos with text, marker and more! I just wish you dont need Wifi for some features, cause i travel alot. But its ok ill install a wifi hotspot app!Good job!

  42. renju varghese-avatar

    Very good app, but I have two suggestions. 1. Kindly make an option to save audio files also. 2. Can you give an option to MOVE files to a folder (as in Gmail, when we create a new folder, and move the email to it, the original email will not be seen in the INBOX). The current option available in Google photos now is COPY. So we find the images/videos in the newly created folder and in the main folder.

  43. Gina Whitney-avatar

    Very confusing. Edit options minimal. I was able to create all kind of wonderful things using my photos and edit, create options. Now I can't. Can barely find what I want and then can't make the simplest of options. And forget about adding. No way to be artistic at all. Wish you'd have left mine alone. Google updates have progressively taken over and eliminated user choices. In everything they have access to. If my phone begins experiencing any problems after I send this, I will have my proof!

  44. Camilla Thomas-avatar

    It's very convenient, and the photo ID and search is pretty impressive. However, I desperately want to label my photos (both in groups and individually), a feature that was supported by Picasa. The only way to label your photos currently, is to sort them into albums. This produces a glut of albums. It would help if you could sort albums into folders, but you can't. Finally, I don't like how hard it is to edit a photo and find it again, since the edit is saved in a different location.

  45. andrei breazu-avatar

    Although it was usefull, for some time, now, the backup it's very slow and even though it is finished/not uploading anything, it's a huge drainage for my battery, on a Samsung S7 Edge. I have to recharge my phone at least 2 or 3 times a day, and usually it's battery it's very hot. Once or twice a week I find it turned off with the battery empty... I have to uninstall it...

  46. Ryan Garza-avatar

    From the clean interface, to the storage capability, ease of sync across multiple devices, I could go on forever - this app is ever-evolving itself to become more personal and capable, if you're in the market for photo storage/organization/backup destination, your car washed (not yet), anything... this is the app!

  47. Rifat Al Mahmud-avatar

    great app to backup photos and manage photos. i can name a person and then search his/her photos only by their name and google will search the persons photo then show it to me amd take no time all most. and it will show my past photos and remember by special event and show photos from the event.

  48. Leael Lobo-avatar

    I've found it really good as it helps me store things which can't be stored in the first I thought what if the phone memery gets full...this app has helped me save a lot of space...which I didn't even know when it was overcrowded...thanks!!❤😄

  49. Shaam Niyas-avatar

    Over the last few months the app does not backup any photos like it used to. I stumbled on this issue about a week ago and noticed montus and months of my pictures were missing. There was an update for the app, but it fixed nothing. I've been trying to get in touch with Google, which no response. I noticed the photos backup when the display is on and the app is the first thing you see. So through the developer options I have enabled the phone to stay awake while charging, that'll no be good for

  50. Sabah Mehmood-avatar

    Loved this app. As it allows me to save my pics of years ago, even if it is deleted from my gallery. And also the best part is, it gives you a flash back of years ago with cute titles. But one thing I didn't like that there's no privacy to hide the photos, anybody can excess the photos and videos without any lock. Any which ways the app is awesome.

  51. Dave Walsh-avatar

    I have used this app for a number of years now and my photo album collection has grown to a stage that they are beginning to get unruly. The thing that I would like to see is the adoption of folders (eg by year) and the ability to sort photo albums alphabetically by title. I have been scanning old photo albums and putting them in Google Photos. Unfortunately, although I date them by title and year, they show up in Google Photos by uploaded date which is not how I would like them to be sorted.

  52. jessery-avatar

    Cant sync to windows. Loved this app but this is just a stupid apple style move from google. Have you considered we dont all use web apps for everything? If i want to edit a photo in lightroom or photoshop you expect me to open the browser, download the photo to my pc edit it and re upload. Just give me a folder on my desktop where my photos sync to like we used to have. Isnt the point of the cloud to be seamless? I will be moving everything to onedrive over this issue. Mind boggling error.

  53. Furrball McDuff-avatar

    Furrball McDuff


    Too much simplified, especially in that it lacks cropping while editing, and some kind of simple marker to get rid of data you can't reveal in part of a screenshot. Ok there may be apps for that, but come on, move your bottoms and stop selling toy systems. We need options. -- edit: ok now we've got markers and croppers, but still need sorting options for files, such as sort by name. We dont give a f* about privacy options, we need REAL functionality, you dorks!

  54. Bleik Monroy-avatar

    Since my last review, google photos has evolved into the most powerful photo cloud and organizer. I love the face recognition that allows the user to view any desired individual in my memories. The user can select any day month or year or even search for specific keywords such as "mountains" or "flowers" or "dog" etc. Just imagine how specific you can get and be able to pin point your memories with one keyword. Thank you google!

    It'd be great if it didn't remove photos from my device for no discernable reason, to only be accessible from the (thankfully) in-app cloud storage. I have no idea how it's decided which photos go, but you don't get to choose and there's no way to undo en masse. You'd have to go through each individual photo to see where it's stored, and download it again. Ridiculous. I didn't download photos so I could be denied them when outside of wifi. Very frustrating "feature".

    I wouldn't give this application 1 star, but there's no negative stars for one to choose. Why? 1.Lost & missing Photos and Videos, I mean over 20 gigabytes. 2. The " Save internal memory, all pics are backed up and safe". Really! Not only did I lose thousands of photos and videos, many of my Daughter, and Sabrina, and Luna, my other children that happened to be Siberian Huskies and are now dead. To add insult to injury, not a megabyte in the reduction of internal storage.

    I really love when my sdcard don't get no attention and I get asked to buy more data or storage space. On an bottomless pit account. Please make it work Google I've lost enough favourite memories already being in prison. I don't hack you. Don't jack and hack me. My apologies if it's because I'm an developer. Then I'm market.

    It's a pain to alter files. Rename a file? Good luck. Taking a photo of a receipt, and you want to crop it, rotate it, rename it, and send it? Those options are sometimes presented to you as a blue pop-up offering those types of options, other times not offered. Sometimes when you save your adjusted image, it seems to overwrite the file, sometimes it saves a copy in a mystery location in another folder elsewhere. Its really inconsistent.

  60. Ambi-avatar

    After the recent updates, the app has trouble moving / copying / deletingphotos. It creates multiple files instead, but if you delete the original file, the copy is deleted as well. Very non - user friendly, and nothingicould do to fixit. At first everything worked fine. Other features feel like they're too much, and user control on photosare getting diminished every update. We don't need extra features. We need control on what we want to do with our photos. I can see in Album difernt Face

  61. Matt Archibald-avatar

    Recently I've had trouble adding photos to albums. I'll select say 60 pictures to create an album from and they appear to all get added, but later I find out some got removed. I then go in and add the missing ones, and again all look to be added, but eventually some disappear. This is especially irritating when sharing albums with others. Note that when I add pictures to the album using the Google photos website, I have no issues.

  62. Helena Titus-avatar

    It's really annoying. When you save a photo/video it automatically makes multiple folders. And when you delete and want to just keep the photo in one, it deletes it from everywhere. There's also frame capture folders that are created all the time. Even when I send a video to a friend and they watch it, a folder is made with a bunch of pictures from the video. This app has lots of trouble moving photos from one album to another. I don't like this app

  63. Edwin Sisson-avatar

    In a file manager there seems to be a folder named Google Photos which is a remnant of the removal of the old Google photos from the old Google drive. This folder appears from time to time and confuses me. If the entire file structure were more clearly explained, both on the phone and on the cloud, then I think it would eliminate a lot of confusion for everybody.

    I love Google photos because it keeps your pictures in order. It separates and tells you the date and where it was taken. I also love the way they do your pictures. I could go on and on but everybody would get tired of reading.

  65. Chris Leone-avatar

    I was writing and it got lost. So again I will say I just updated Google Photos app. I love how they have used my photos. Very nice. I must learn how to do things. I do not know yet. But I do fix my photos because they have things to lighten, make large, small, etc. And backupy photos. I love Google Google is so good. I just updated. And I can have all my photos private, storage is HUGEEEE. Make albums, make photos look excellent. Google has much on this app. And I am glad I have it. 👏💕😀👍

  66. Toasbi Havkil-avatar

    Excellent app and all I use for storing pictures. Easy to use, plenty of options for all sorts of things, great to use free and the subscription isn't bad at all. The high quality storage is worth the price to me, but honestly it's pretty tough to notice a significant difference even with my pixel 4 pictures. I'm just picky, so I get it. I wish there were a little more folder options, or something like a private folder/album. This app gets all the basics down perfectly with plenty of extras

  67. Hailey Tait-avatar

    I LOVE this app 110% It's a GREAT way to keep your phone storage clean. Because all you have to do is go to settings and make sure that if you delete something it goes to your trah and your amaze google photos. You should definently get this. Plus you can select up to 50 photos and videos to make a little mini movie. How cool is that!? And, it even adds little catchy music to the movie!! #bestphotokeeperever!

  68. AsIM AsUR-avatar

    I was surprised how much easier it made keeping track of all of my photos & videos. I take lots of pics. I also love to download pins from Pinterest. It's perfect for getting & staying organized. You can swiftly scroll through all you've saved & organized, with little effort & time involved. When you have a kazillion pics & videos, it could take forever to find what you're looking for. Thankfully, with this app, you can access your precious memories on the go! ♥️ Lov!!!

    Helped me a lot. It's nice being able to back up pictures and free up space on my phone. Very useful when sharing pictures and videos between devices. I recommend buying a plan. If I didn't have this I would have 100gb worth of pictures on my phone. It's also very fun to see random old pictures/old memories. Puts a smile on my face.

  70. Avery McIntire-avatar

    I got google photos because I had too many pictures and was running out of storage and oh my goodness it is amazing! Most of my friends have it, so it was easier than ever to share photos and large videos that would otherwise not send over text. I have many shared albums with people and therefore memories that I'll never forget and I love the amazing face and object recognition that it has. Highly recommend by this happy customer! Thank you, Google Photos :)

  71. Anil Ram-avatar

    Useless app the user has no control over what to save and this app works in a very false way. In a collection of photos it saves some of the photos and leaves behind other images.One can't even download or remove the useless pictures if they are not present in your phone's internal storage. Very bad work Google.I never expected this from you.

  72. Tirru Sharrma-avatar

    Please add fingerprint touch as a security measure. Too many photos and videos are being uploaded. To protect the privacy it should be there. Don't know why Google has not added this. If not added in next update unfortunately have to find another photos app.

  73. Justin Lindsey-avatar

    Worst app EVER!! Google makes it so hard to understand, they do not describe anything in enough detail for even tech savvy people to know everything it does with your photos, and once you start to use the backup feature, it DELETES your images off your phone and then backs them up to the cloud. If you have any images that you don't want everyone you know to see, i am warning you now DO NOT EVER USE THIS APP, do not allow it to "sync" your data.

  74. Sharon Greggs-avatar

    I have finally learned how to make albums. It's great that I'm able to be able to take photos and crop and alter them, and THEN save them! It's even better that I can take my phone to the drug store, and copy any picture I've wanted! Folks can use different programs to get the effects that they want, for their own types of work, BUT, I find Google Photos. It's easy to use and navigate, and pretty much explanatory. Thank you, Google, once again!

  75. I s-avatar

    I can't choose what I want to save anymore, it just backups everything and I need to delete them by hand, for example, I don't want to save every screenshot I ever take on my phone or stupid whatsapp things people send me everyday. If I could select the pictures I'd like to save one by one in my gallery and them upload here it would be easier.

    Can't believe I never rated Google Photos! I love Google Photos! You keep getting better and better! Thank you for making this one of the most easiest, generous apps. From the assistant, sharing, making videos of pictures you collaborate for me, storage, to managing my photos, all the albums I can create, the list goes on and on! Thank you!!!

  77. Logan Brist-avatar

    ATTENTION: If you change your mind about saving a picture on Google Photos, you CAN NOT delete it from online storage without it being deleted from your device as well. That's right. It is automatically removed. This is an unannounced feature meant to make the user app-dependent and it is disappointing that it is not made more clear. If you ever want to leave Google Photos, you will need to download your photos to a computer independently and re-transfer them to your device. Beware.

  78. Mo Mo-avatar

    1) Bug fix required: whenever I try to edit photos (flipping or tilting them), it doesn't save, and the app just crashes and closes. 2) the solicitation to print pictures or order frames takes up too much room and is intrusive. 3) I once uninstalled and then reinstalled the app. All the photos that were previously archived, were not archived; they were showing up in the main feed. Although on the site version they were still archived.

  79. Chinmay Tiwari-avatar

    It's smooth and I didn't notice any bugs. I can say it's stable and optimised and I love it. I might have given 5 stars but there is a thing that I didn't like. Well if you turn on the backup feature then by default it uploads everything inside the DCIM folder. The DCIM folder has Camera, Screenshots, Facebook and alot more. I only want to upload and sync Camera stuff nothing else but there is no option to do so. This has become a bummer for me. Everytime I take a ss it gets uploaded. Hate it.

  80. Staly Mahaur-avatar

    The Google photos app is a mess now since the last update ...when downloading the Google photos data from Google takeouts ..The downloaded data consists of too many unnecessary folders, Like Previously they used to have the data in a well organised manner like YEAR>MONTH and all your photos be In that month...But Now it is creating 365 days of folder and In a mess way !

  81. Melissa Mersey-avatar

    I hate that it is difficult to gety pics on my computer. The Google pics app doesn't allow me to save pics to my desktop and when I connected my phone to my computer via USB cord it doesn't work most of the time. Can't wait to go back to an apple iPhone.

  82. Sai Geetha-avatar

    Before I download this app,my phone was stuck with my photos, but when I downloaded this ,I was free of my storage prblm and It was easy for me to get my old photos by searching. The main advantage of this app is that we don't want to delete the photos or videos for getting space.Great thankss for this app

  83. simonali6819-avatar

    Adds location data to the gallery even though I have set all my privacy features to not record this data. Also keeps jumbling up the photos so the dates are wrong e.g. it will put photos from 2016 under 2014. This makes them harder to find. Also the For You tab seems to have no purpose. It's always a blank page and there is nothing in settings pertaining to it. If it doesn't do anything get rid of it!

  84. Chandan Gowda-avatar

    Even though I've opted for automatic backup via mobile data or wifi, backup process happens only when the app is open and the display is on. Once the screen locks, backup pauses and resumes once screen is unlocked. Also backup stops when the app is minimised

    I love the Google app for all my pictures! The app not only helps me keep all of my favorite memories organized but I can also know for sure that nothing will ever happen to them because I keep my photos backed up and stored! Thank you Google!!!! I also love the suggestions for collages and other things the assistant brings to my attention! Really on a scale of 1to 10 I would go with a 20!!!

  86. Kylie Greeno-avatar

    Was really good app but did an update and now it will not let me edit any photos try amazon instead. I wrote the above in an earlier review but I need to add to it as this app is now appalling. It will not back up . Photos keep duplicating. My phone is now totally out of space because what was once my back up no longer works. It still wont let me edit any photos. Just loads for hours. All the features have stopped working and just load including free up space etc. Google do something!!!!!!!!!

  87. Robert Greig-avatar

    Google photos worked great for me until my photos stopped being backed up for some reason several weeks ago. I now have over 5,000 photos waiting to be backed up!!! I have tried all the fixes without success and and as a Google One member I tried to get help online but just got copy/paste emails back from a different person every day with no success. My photos used to be backed up onto my pc and amazon kindle but that has stopped aswell. So it's a frustrating time. Can anyone help me?

  88. Simeon Chavel-avatar

    App used to be great. Important things broke. App is organized intuitively. Makes it easy to keep track and access pics from anywhere on the phone. Editing tool is great too. I get tons of pics on WhatsApp, put them into Photos albums directly. At some point, App albums can't show pics from WhatsApp correctly. Pics are in the wrong chronological order, or repeating themselves like a warhol. Also, can't edit them in the album anymore, must find them in the complete set.

  89. Sonya Heath-avatar

    I love the idea of having all my photos from all my devices saved to Google Photos. Only problem is that it just doesn't happen. There were photos from multiple devices that were all supposed to save to Google photos but didn't. Maybe the capability is there but, as someone else mentioned, horrible user interface/options.

  90. Morgan Willis-avatar

    While I love the functions of this app, I have always found it really upsetting and irritating that some of my photos don't move to the folders I tell them to, or if i save photos to the cloud, I can't delete them on my device bcc then they are deleted from the cloud. This is very annoying to me, which is why I give this one star

    I love it I cannot resist it! It's Soo better than I thought it's beyond my expectations!!! I have an old mobile, and there is only 2 gb ram,so my gallery cannot handle too much photos, but,,,!!! Google photos back ups all of them and my gallery becomes empty to click more photos but actually my photos are all backed up in google photos!! So I don't have any tension 🙄 .and whenever I need to show any photo to my friend I can show them from Google photos and keep backing and clicking the photos!

  92. Vineet Limaye-avatar

    Not able to view High Resolution Photos properly in the App. While zooming them, the result is a pixelated image & all details from the photo seem lost. But after opening the same image through a different gallery App, all details can be seen. Please fix the issue. Also, there's error in preview of wallpapers for 4k, 8k images. PLEASE fix the issues.

    I just ran into a ridiculous issue. I by mistake turned off the backup. I again switched it on and after that the already backed up photos started backing up again. They are about 4000. There's just no way to turn it off. My daily data got over and I just kept wondering what's wrong. The backup (of already backed up photos)isn't stopping whatsoever( except when I switch off the backup). Pls do something to fix this. Pls use your software magic to know which photos to backup and which not to.

    Generally awesome, but it sucks you cant delete photos from albums. I put them there to organize them, but if I want to delete one I have to search through my whole main photos list?? Also wish I could rearrange the order of photos In albums. These are simple features that exist in gallery and other apps. Why not photos?

  95. Jay Daisuke-avatar

    Very Excellent gallery saver! I know this app from my brother Haniff. This app allows me to save a lot of space in my phone storage with high quality, and furthermore, it's free! and you can also optionally save full quality media with 15GB limit fair enough. It's very organised and space saving, its smart and automatically sort images accordingly. I really like it. 5/5

  96. Humayun Kabir-avatar

    This app is one of the finest app i have ever seen! Thanks to google for such a fine app. It brings back all the photos of different timeline & eventually brings back my memories. Moreover you can save photos in this app for quite a long time and also edit & customize the photos. I give my heartfelt thanks to Google for making this app. Thanks Google!

  97. Mike Snyder-avatar

    Great photos app. Better then the stock gallery app. Awesome features, grouping by face, also once backed up to the goggle cloud you can delete the photos from your device to save room. Only thing I don't like compared to the regular gallery is my screenshots don't save to this. All the other albums do like downloads and etc.

  98. Heliana Drakonaki-avatar

    I love very much this app because it shows me all my photos from the time that I took the first photo that was uploaded to my account. And it also has cool features with creating animations and movies (short videos) with your photos and videos! The one downside is that in my device, restore doesn't really work. 9.9 recommend

  99. Anisa Koni-avatar

    I was very happy with this app. This can keep all my photos and videos. It used to back up those without any problem. Nowadays i just have to wait for my pics and videos to be backed up. They don't back up if I am not using this app. Please fix this or i will find for another app. I don't have time to back up my photos every single day. I need them to be backed up even if i am not using the app. :/

  100. Steph Bolton-avatar

    Nearly 4/5 stars Google. Not a very easily "accessible" app.... Nor do I feel it's an app that's ready to kick all other photo organizers to the curb... for using as an app with Chromebook or what-have-you I believe it's in its infancy... I am happy with it but I'll lie in-wait. I only see such great intuitive things to come!
