    Dreaded "waiting for wifi" message. I've tried everything on the internet. I've even reinstalled this app. I pay a lot for google drive and to backup my photos and this does not work. It's sucked up a lot of my time and still doesn't work. Google just wants the money and doesn't care about it's customers. I guess it's time to look for alternatives.

    login other than it does automatically backup photos & videos, I completely agree with a previous comment stating, "Why does it change the date of the photos on my device? Why does this app completely ruin the system that allows me to see my photos in the order in which I took them? I have done a backup twice using Google photos, and both times the app started changing the dates of my photos randomly, so that certain photos from the past were brought to the day of the backup." This needs fixing asap!

    app This google tool is great in almost every aspect. But I wish that you could have more options when using the "freeing up space" software, so that you can chose how much space to free from your device. For someone in a third world country like me that doesn't always have access to the internet, it comes in really handy to have all your documents offline... If you could tweak that into the next update it would be awsome.

    search Terrible. Why does it change the date of the photos on my device. Why does this app completely ruin the system that allows me to see my photos in the order in which I took them. I have done a backup twice using Google photos, and both times the app started changing the dates of my photos randomly, so that certain photos from the past were brought to the day of the backup. Having cleared up storage already, I can only live with it, and never use this service again

    backup I love the photos app. The only thing I can think that should be different with it that i think i would do to the app overall is to not store the same photo more than once in different places, i.e. archive+library will have same photo in them. This can be confusing when trying to retrieve, or work with them. Makes it very difficult to find the ones you want if they can be found in several places and this has to use or affect storage somehow I would think.

    download Google photos is by far the best app I have experienced for storing photos and videos. 10 on 10. I mainly like all the features like styled, cinematic photos, animation, collage and movie. I Love the music they add to the movies, it feels refreshing. I also like the memory feature which makes me nostalgic. Great work team. Hoping to get more and more features to enhance many more experiences.👍😊

    sign in A few issues have come up. I cannot use the "free up space" option. The app just closes or freezes when I click on it. Also, I ALWAYS have things backing up. Once in a while I will open the app and it will say "backup complete" but then one second later it says it's backing up 600 items. I have the setting set to backup using data. I have unistalled and reinstalled the app twice.

  8. Michael Ciha-avatar

    desktop app Some time within the last few updates my photos STOPPED automatically getting uploaded from my phone. I changed NOTHING. I am constantly having to MANUALLY tell it to back up my photos. It still is NOT consistently backing up automatically. And Google Photos is chronically "forgetting" faces/people I have tagged. The same photos over and over again.

  9. Dan Paul-avatar

    backup and sync Does basic things adequately I suppose but lacks many features and the ones that it does have are clunky. For instance, rotating photos, a process that happens often with phone pictures, requires you to click edit, then crop(?), rotations then save. This slows you down considerably when editing. There's no option to flip on either axis and no filter to create a negative. I guess this is good enough for hasty pics on Facebook but if you want to do any real editing, then this app isn't much use.

    on iphone Normally I enjoy this feature from Google as it helps me see photos from years ago. As of late, my phone is filling up GB wise and the free up space option isn't working. I've Uninstalled the app multiple times. I've restarted my phone. I've force stopped the app, cleared cache, ect. Nothing is working and I have 22GB that need freed up, as it's already backed up. I pay every month for Google storage, so I don't see what the issue is.

    Great photo viewing platform. You can backup your photos so you don't regret it if you lost them somehow. Convienent if you want a platform of you're running out of disk space. But it lags a lot. I tried downloading it on my older phone; Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace which runes on android 4.4.4. By the way, it should include its own disk space and it should have a lite version. Anyways, thanks!

    Recently the app doesn't save the description typed in for some of the images. I have the latest version of the app, latest version of Android Software, I've tried rebooting my phone. So I'm guessing it's only a problem in the app.

    Good platform for storing photos which offers a back up in case your current device or storage breaks down. I like the albums and the assistant and sharing is an easy way to share selected photos without having to upload them elsewhere or attach them to emails Apr 2021: Google is now introducing charging. This was clearly and inarguably marketed as free. Google has lied to us all

    This app simply does not work. There is a major issue, known on several major forums for at least two years, in which the application is stuck on "preparing backup" or ""getting ready to backup"" and does nothing but draining the battery. On some websites there are many suggestions for fixing this problem (disabling battery saver mode, clear the app memory cash , reinstalling, updating app, rebooting, enabling cellular backup and some more), none of them works except for one - finding an old enough APK version and installing it. Now - go figure how old it should be. Once this problem happened on on my previous phone which was old enough I rolled back to factory installed version and disabled updates for the app which did the job. Very disappointing.

    Showing all photos older than a year under the wrong date. Update: After going to Contact Developer I've got email response - "You have emailed to an address that is no longer being monitored." And this is the app that is getting updated regularly! 🤔 Update 2: After few hours the application started showing proper dates, without any updates or changes. Not sure what was it, but the whole ordeal with inability to submit issue and a bunch of wasted time makes me very uncomfortable with Google. ☹

  16. Jules-avatar



    It sucks! I backed up my photos, they all suddenly disappeared from my gallery. I have to go to the website to use a singular photo. I cant select them all to download either, which i have thousands of photos. I can't unback them up so now I have to find an app to retrieve them all somehow! Also, stupid layout, honestly the homepage should be all my folders in one spot easily accessible.

    Could not find option to delete (move to bin) when a photo is selected from an album. Can only remove it from the album, which means photo stays in the collection. Is this an overlook from the developers? Or did I miss something?

    I love the app, but after the last update, when I open backup settings from my work account (paid) , the one I use for backup, it just shows the information of used space on my personal (limited) account... No settings or anything, and not even from the account I want to use... I toggled between one and other just in case, but still showing the same... No matter which account I choose... very frustrating.

    Very many problems. For almost two months now the app's Free up Space crashes. It never works. I had to buy a new SD Card just because the app is so bad lately. Was working fine until before then. I have almost two months' worth (almost 50) emails with Support, where they're saying, "We're working on it". "We appreciate your patience". "We understand". "Have you tried restarting the phone?". Everything else on my phone is working perfectly, as was Photos, until an update wreaked havoc.

    This app is good and all, but I wish that we could automatically and manually group similar faces. It doesn't group all similar faces. I wish you could add a person yourself, instead of waiting for it. And if you add a high quality video editor on here, fix those little things I mentioned, this app would be golden. 🥳❤️✨ (You should also improve the photo editing, this app has real potential and if you just fix a few things I'd use it for everything, and I mean it. Also, add more filters pls.)

    Now charging for years worth of "free storage" that I have accumulated... They are making you pay for google one storage now that the app is changing. I don't get why all the changes. Things we're just going too good for ya huh had to start hitting us in our pockets during this time. Awesome. Side note the review scale is so wrong I'm seeing much more 1 star reviews than 5 star like it states....

  22. Tracy Webster-avatar

    I am enjoying this app. One if the things I really appreciate is that as long as I use the same email, I can have allll of my photos from every phone I've had, saved on my Google drive. I only just realized that I'm a little rough on my devices. I'm klutzy. They usually end up falling in a bucket of water, the dog bowl, stuff like that. I love that my pictures are always backed up and safe every time that happens!!

    This used to be a wonderful app. The latest updates have all but destroyed it. I am no longer able to edit my photos since they've included the option to upgrade to premium on the editing page. When I was able to edit, It kept changing where it saved the edited picture. It used to save it to Photos Editor. Then it gave you two options: to save or save as a new file. Then it went back to Photos Editor after another update. The customer service link listed on this app in Google Play is not valid.

    Thank you. This app makes me happy whenever I open it. It's the best app created in my opinion. All the auto functions of sorting photos and making collages and showing the past years in relation to current date, always make me and my daughter smile. There isn't one bad thing about it. Everytime it improves I am amazed you could make something perfect, even better. Thank you app designers and engineers, for your expertise in making it so enjoyable.

    I always enjoy Google Photos. I especially love how they create a large flashback of photos in the proper timeline. It's also fairly easy to look back on photos from previous years. From time to time they also send me Stylized Photos. They are fun to look at and save me the hassle to filer out a photo myself. Never had any issues whatsoever. I would recommend Google Photos to anyone who is starting their own account.

    It's nice being able to access my automatically backed up photos from almost anywhere. The search capabilities and tags for people are great. The only downside is that the memories, automatic creations, and recent highlights are now in dumb Instagram-like stories at the top. I used to love those features when they had their own tab, now I don't even look at them.

    App offers many great features,user friendly. I've always loved photography & marveled at Its magical qualities how it cld snap! & have a moment IN time, frozen for ALL time. Have you ever Really thought abt that, past where we Take it for granted? It's one of the most amazing, wonderful moments of natural magic. Thanks for this assist! Less hard control only Google's.Why!? Don't like them having auto Control in any way over anything, that's my fun! Or want/don't want...... No AUTO organize+

    A lot of my photos and videos are not showing up on Google Photos. It always says Can't Play Video or Device Only. Most of the time, those photos and videos of very important events are the ones getting the error. I've been experiencing this since December 2020. All my efforts taking videos and photos are wasted. And the developer contact email is also not working. Who will I contact for help now?!!!

    Hi, got an issue with duplicates, I had few photos with wrong dates on my phone, sorted it,but after that gphotos decided to re uplot 13000 pictures, probably skipped few, but I still ended up with at least hundreds of them 2-3 times up. And it uploaded many of them as original quality. So I lost few GB for no reason as well. Changes to high quality after, but still a lots of space lost. When we Gona get duplicate finder ? You had it in Picasa, and it worked through gdrive as well. They are dead

    Update: Since I got a pixel, this hasn't been a problem. Now the only quibble is that I use the partner sharing with my spouse, and their view is not great compared to the standard experience. Otherwise quite a good app. Oruginal 1 star review: Its a really good app, except that half the time when I open it, it immediately crashes. It seems to be when its backing up on WiFi, but regardless it is really annoying.

    I have been using the Google apps for a long time, love how everything is in one area, and after all these years, haven't lost a thing. now with that being said, I find it crazy that u expect me to pay $1.99 a month of more memory, no option to purchase any direct only a monthly fee option (so you want me to pay for something that I will lose by the end of the month) Also I have tried a few times contacting the company/app but no response, (update a year later still no contact)

  32. Maxxis-avatar



    2 out of 5 stars. Considering who the program is developed by, you'd think Google would develop it to have more options. In Samsung Gallery, I can easily create folders and subfolders, but not in Google Photos. It's intuitive, but misses backing up photos everytime. Each time I check, there's a different album skipped. If the user is simple looking to keep a cloud-based backup, this is good but double check that everything is there and not skipped.

  33. J.E. Highley-avatar

    Functionally it works well, but it does not take your time into consideration. No option to turn off auto-generated albums; Placing those right at the top means we have to scroll past unwanted interface nonsense to get to the our own photos every time the app is accessed. No option to turn off. From a photo viewing app, I want quick access to my pictures, my way, not your way. At least offer a choice.

    Oh cool. I updated the app so it would stop telling me to every time I open it, and now all my photos are gray squares. Even better when you click on your new gray squares, it's just a black screen. Thanks so much. Hey they were just the pictures of the only people on earth I love, no biggie right. Maybe I can redraw them from memory using the edit function.

    So much basic functionality that just isn't. You can't select all photos in an album, you can't archive photos from albums, it doesn't back up folders as folders, so it just dumps everything into one big pile. But seriously, being able to "select all" is the most obvious function imaginable, and yet no one at google has bothered to incorporate it ever. Like a car that can't go in reverse. Wake up and incorporate some of the most BASIC FUNCTIONS expected of any storage program/app.

    I used 2 like this App but now (since recent Updates) I hate it and am currently looking thru the Google Play store 4 an alternative better photo management app (surely no other app could be worse - !) - ... The App is inherently unstable on my Mobile Phone (and not just on my current 1 but on my previous mobile ph's as well) - I currently can't even look at my photos or albums without the App closing down + constantly crashing - !!! - usually after 30secs or less - !! - No reply 2 complaint !!

    My photos app shouldn't advertise photo-related products that it wants to sell me. The photos app should be a basic utility of a phone. Not another opportunity for Google to get more money from me. And it's not intuitive. There's no one place to easily see all images on your phone, it's all divided up into album's based on apps, file type, screenshot, camera, etc. Which is fine, but that's the only way to see it. You can't look at all pictures on your phone regardless of type.

    Google photos is a fantastic app for organizing, editing, and sharing your photos. The suggestion aspect of the editing is very helpful to show you what's possible with your photos 📷 I also really like when I get a notification that Google did something fancy with one of my photos, very cool 😎 My only suggestion is a way to delete photos faster. I take a lot of pictures from my car every day and it takes a while to figure out what are keepers and which ones aren't. Overall I love this app!

    It is very good, there is good editing in it, it is available for free in everyone's phone and it also looks good editing the normal photo, but it really takes backup so I liked it This is a gallery, it is very good to save photos and it also has edits, it really keeps updating, so keep updating it, then you get to see new features and I like it too That is why I did not force stop it and I am using it, I would give it 5 stars but due to the lack of any more good features, I will start it only 4

    I love this app. Especially the animations. I've bought a canvas from the app too and it was better than I imagined it would be. Photo books are worth it too. They are fairly inexpensive for prints and they are delivered quickly. All reason why I love this app.

  41. Christina-avatar



    I cannot print my own albums. Google also tries to do too many things with my photos. I feel like the photos belong to google and not me.. I won't buy another google phone because I want to control my own pictures. A lot of them are gone wherever google saves them. They won't download to windows which is depressing. I like to do more with my photos but google photos won't let me.

    The simple Photos app is fine. Click the 'Order Photos' button for a very different experience. Difficult to use, totally not intuitive, and very buggy. It crashed on me twice losing what I had done both times. I'll come back to it when they have sorted it out.

    After the last update, Google Photos won't let me move pictures to different folders. I have specific ways I like to keep my media, and now I can't do it because the app won't let me. Edit they asked for: Whenever I try to move my pictures to a different folder, it asks for permission to modify them. No matter how many times I say yes, every time I try to move them, it says there was trouble moving them.

    Great and amazing app, but theres a few problems. Google Photos worked perfectly fine (the first few days ive got this mobile), but after a month or two, it started lagging for some odd reason. I have to re-open the app at least 3 times just for it to work normally. As i was scrolling through my photos, it immediately stopped running, and a pop-up notification appears on my screen. The next this is that the collage wont work properly, bit the lag is more important. Anyway, Amazing app, good job!

    New storage subscription model is a clear bait and switch. The app also has very poor UX. E.g. when downloading pictures from an album to my phone, they often won't appear in any of my phone's albums, or they'll be very hard to find if they do download properly. Sharing an album is often a pain. When trying to add a Gmail account to a shared album for example, it often says "No Google account found" and then I have to either make a public link, or try to download the images. Has gone downhill.

    I liked this app until I started to edit a few pics. Then I hated it!!! I do NOT fully understand how to edit a pic in this app!!! 🙄 its confusing and complicated! So hard to add good text to photos too. I still have my pics in there, but I got another app for editing. Sorry, but I don't lie & maybe a change or update would definitely help sometime soon. Maybe...? 1🤷‍♀️📱 📷 That is why I had to give you a low 2 stars. I'd be happy to change my rating in the future.

Over the past year, Google took away the benefit of original storage quality photos not counting against your storage with certain phones, but unfortunately count it against your storage now. A few months after, I received an update saying that I should install it to discover all the new features. There weren't any new features, but instead a notification that now the high quality photos will count against storage.

    The addition of tagging people was very big improvement, but it still lacks the ability to tag a person if Google says there are no people in the picture. During a pandemic, all my pictures of friends and family are not be recorded properly because Google can't find a face. 18 months and still nothing. At least Amazon photos asks who a person in a mask is.

    Was great, now not so much. You used to be able to keep all your photos backed up in original full quality if you bought a pixel phone. This was great, then they changed it to only high quality photos can be free and not count towards storage. Now you can't even store your high quality without it counting towards your Google drive, ridiculous. This is how they reward google pixel customers, I don't think my next phone will be a Pixel.

    The app used to download photos in the background making it easier to maintain space. Now the only time it downloads the photos is if the app is open and it has to be on the download page. If not, it just stops downloading. Also, it crashes everytime you try the free up space option. This used to work awesome. And why have the download speeds gotten slower with 5G. This just doesn't make sense for an app that used to be awesome

    This app has become useless as regards the "Edit" options, if you can call that editing. I get paying for the extra storage, and I would - but I won't because storage is the only good thing about Google Photos. The rest sucks. The editor used to be better about 6 years ago - it should be the other way round, I believe. Which is why I'm giving it the 1 star rating.

    Not nearly as good, as the Picasa editor, which can't be downloaded from a reputable source anymore. It doesn't have the support for the app. With an assistant to wipe my dripping forehead, I found a downloadable app flowing around. It works. I'm using it until it's wiped off the planet.

    I absolutely LOVE Google photos. I never have to worry about loosing my pictures. The ONLY thing I don't like about it... is if you don't send an email every once in a while, they will delete your account. That puts a risk on loosing all your pictures. I don't send emails alot so this sucks. Wish they wouldn't have added that or made it a separate feature....

    It's wonderful. Gets better every time I use it. Auto backups and all my pictures in one place do no matter if I'm at Walmart or Shutterfly I can easily access my pics. Thanks a lot. Well unlimited storage was nice while it lasted. Going to have a hard time keeping under my limit if they don't find a way to delete whole groups of email at one time. Still I love Google Photos best out of all the ones I've tried.

    I just struggle with the backing up my photos. Seems like the way to do it is constantly changing making it hard for me to know if I actually have all of my photos saved. It has left me with some photos in Google drive, some in the newest method. Then I'm afraid I'm running them due to the different saving formats. Lastly I am really tired of monthly fees for things. Google photos is now doing the same. Might be only a small amount but for the customer these type of charges add up!

    Wish the print store was a smaller button... it makes the interface ugly to look at. Also wish there was a way to hide the subscription options in edit, so I have to scroll less. Another annoyance, is that there's no way to switch a photo's folder location from an album. I have to go find the photo in its original folder and for older images that takes forever. Even worse when I want to move multiple from different folders. Otherwise decent, no major standouts. No bugs found.

    I love this app way too much to stop using it, it's the best Google photos has almost all the features I could ever want- Eg : It has filters, crop, rotate, stabilize, and it gives you many suggestions as well. It also shows you "old" pictures that have been taken long back in a feature called ' Recent highlights ' The storage is pretty good but since I take too many photos unlimited storage would have been more useful. You can delete as well as restore photos and sync your photos here too!!

    I use to love the app, now my storage is 15GB! I use to have 100GB and then you take it away and expect me to pay for something I ALREADY HAD WTAF??? Main accounts can not function with 15GB and clearly you know that google since 100GB was offered prior to this HORRIBLE nightmare... Not even that but the storage is a monthly subscription... If I stop paying I lose the storage... This is now a lifetime thing I have to fund for an app that was preinstalled on my device... Smh.

    For an improvement to "suggested actions" what about an option to turn them off completely? Update: Still nothing on this? You said you improved them, to me the only improvement would be to turn them off completely. Now you autoplay videos without an off switch? No one wants autoplaying ANYTHING, and would likely turn it off with a switch. But you don't have one here.

    It works, but does not have a lockable folder. Additionally, it is ofern hard to navigate to various folders such as the screenshots. The presentation is not consistent. Also, if you don't have signal you can be blocked from viewing the photos on your camera roll. Maybe there is an option to view resident photos, but I haven't found it. A major fail. I have to download a separate app to view photos that are stored in the memory of my phone. What the hell? Otherwise it has some nice features.

    Always got precious memories saved so even if you lose your phone, change it, etc your photos and videos are still safely saved. Super easy to use, you can even make your own home video from a collage of photos and videos in your library. You can even organize photos based on a specific person's face, making it easier to find specific photos. Sharing and sending photos and videos is pretty easy as well.

    I was really disappointed when I found out tagging is not allowed. This feature is really basic and all other apps have that. We have a lot of images and we need to find them fast. That's what tagging is for. Not a lot of time is spent on making the app. It's just made for money. :( Update: you cannot even email any photos by tapping share. It's getting worse. Update: you can't even copy a photo easily on this app. Very unorganized! Getting worse!

    Google photos is a nice and simple gallery for your photos. I would give it a 5 but does have a major flaw with it. When you enlarge a photo it will not let you move to the next photo until you return the photo to it's original size. Another prob I'm having is I don't see all my photos in other galleries. I just got a new Samsung Galaxy A51 G5 and since I changed phones I cannot see all my photos in other apps. I also can't see all my photos when I load an app to move them to my SD card

    My go-to photo app! I love the ways I can search and organized my photos and the auto creation of collages and videos!!! Wish there were some things I could tweak...

    After last update video editing is less precise. I used to be able to get to a certain frame and cut it there. Now when I get to the frame I want to end on it jumps forward or back after I lift my finger. Very annoying. Though I am glad you stopped emphasizing random videos. I edit a vids in sequence and when you'd make one larger it was hard to tell which videos was in what order.

    This is as good as it gets for an app and it could have been perfect if it still synced with Google Drive like before. Also, Google has all the tools necessary to enable users to make panoramas manually. Google Photos allows users to easily select several pictures and assemble them into a collage or animation. Why not a panorama?

    I came across this app by chance, after someone recommending it. I like having automatic backup and a format which orders according to date. Google lens technology also recognises many plants and animals, also places and so on. It is capable of turning photographs of text into text. This is used automatically and often used for browsing pictures. Oh and it generates albums which can be printed, collages, and panoramas,.. One omission. I can't edit the date stamp on photos.

    WHY. Is this the only default image app for a pixel? Why does this insist on updating weekly?? What is it updating? the notes are just an extra place to remind me that they're changing image backup, which was MOST of the reason I bought a pixel. The app itself is also garbage to use (I edit photos in Canva, now, because it's easier to quickly edit. This is an insult. Canva is also nightmarishly bad.)

    Overall a decent app, but pretty glitchy overall (something you wouldn't expect from a titan like Google). For example, in the new phone I got, it doesn't detect all my folders from library and therefore I can't back them up.

    *Had* two great functions: unlimited backup of photos & videos at high quality, and ability to search through all of them. Both are now neutered. Unlimited backups have been cancelled, ending 7/1/21, and the app continually grows it's thumbnail cache in a way that makes it unusable to access your archive. If you let it run rampant, it will take up your whole SD card. The iOS version has a "Limit Cache Size" feature, Android does not - likely as marketing to sell higher storaged Pixels. Avoid

    I hate how it splits up my photos and arranges them how IT thinks my albums should be. It's hard to organize correctly and it's frustratingly difficult to find one specific picture when I've got to look through 50 random albums I didn't even make to get to it. I like the date stamps it puts on everything. I also like being able to share things with a wide range of apps, but this app itself is a nightmare.

    Makes it very difficult when you don't want print. Sometimes you just take a picture, for the moment. make a correction, but you don't have time to do it immediately. I do not want these photos permanently they're just things. They may or may not, mean anything for example a picture from a yard sale I want to share with a friend. It is of no use, doesn't belong in the cloud, or anywhere else. I don't let her time I will decide if just junk. I well group and name it if I want it when I'm ready.

    I love that Google photos backs up new pictures and footage immediately. My partner and son's father passed away when my son was 4 months old. Shortly after losing him I lost my phone and had no idea whether or not the only thing we had left of him which was pictures, was backed up. Thank God that Google photos was backing up all along without me even knowing. I still have all of the pictures from our years together up until the day I lost the phone. So grateful for this tool.

    The App was great! The fact that we can no longer store pictures on Google Photos taken after June 2021 for free. Absolute greed! Google has so much money, that couldn't spend it all before he leaves this world. The plan to make more money that they DON'T NEED? Just take a service (app) that's been free for year's and charge people for a service that was free! You lack integrity and I'll be looking for another App and it won't be affiliated with Google! Storage fine & suddenly they charge $.

    There should be an option to enable or disable backup of videos only. Currently if you disable backup then both photos and videos stop getting backed up. Sometimes we go somewhere and take photos and videos. But videos are in size of Gigabytes which eats up all mobile data. Not everyone have access to wifi. They completely rely on mobile data. Backing up photos on mobile data is fine but not for videos. Google should take into consideration.

    I can no longer transfer photos and use for Wallpaper. Now there it has to be done through Gallery instead. And I seldom use my Gmail account so trying to send a photo has to go through that account instead of my preferred account and then people respond to Gmail which I seldom check. A perfectly great app was messed up and "improved" and now it's just confusing. Everything doesn't transfer to Gallery and why should it, we don't need both. I don't want the Library taking over and arranging thing

    I think it's ridiculous about the new policy that counts your high quality pics towards your storage. I've had to upgrade to the $10 storage plan. If I would've kept my $2 plan my storage would be filled. If I delete and go to another app, I lose all my photos from my kids growing up and forward. Aren't these greedy a- holes rich enough. I've seriously changed how I see Google. I might even go get an I phone so I'm not dependant on their cloud anymore. #pissed

After the last couple updates nothing works right, backup takes forever, doesn't recognize my phone albums, won't "free up space" ,constantly crashing, was online with customer service for hours, still no fix for issues. Hopefully next update will include bug fixes&some good album options like years ago. Then I will go back to 5 stars. Used to be the only backup app I used & trusted now it sucks!

Users have been reporting this since December 2020. What's going on? Why no fix? - - - Of course I'm using the latest app. It's updated automatically.

    Google photos can be amazing. It has the ability to generate collages and colour pop manually but unfortunately boomerangs only automatically. It takes an awfully long time to render a movie mostly 4 hours. Sometimes after days of waiting for the movie to process / render you give up and all your hard work is down the drain. It frustrating as hell. But if you empty the cache then you can avoid those problems. given the options available like apple photos, google photos is awesome.

    The editing ui is getting worse with every new update. At least allow users to rearrange the options so the least popular features don't have to be up front taking up all the real estate. I preferred the mobile app editing UI the way it was before the mobile remake (the way it is still in the desktop browser UI) now there is too much scrolling left and right to get things done. I'm actually going through the trouble of uninstalling the updates on my mobile to get rid of the new UI.

    This the worst photos app I've ever had. I can't find half my albums. You try to add a picture to an album and even though it says all albums only half of them are there.

    Classic bait and switch. They allowed people to store photos for free for years to get us hooked and now will start to charge once people are hooked. Plus they don't allow you to delete photos from their storage without also deleting it from your device. This forces you to use their storage. This is a sneaky way to force you to use their service for all pictures you take. Not just the ones you want to back up with their service.

    All pictures scrabbled together. I had them organized in albums on my phone, but when uploaded they don't end up in albums, just in one big batch. It's super hard to find things, albums don't exist, and there are a bunch of new shiny tools but none that I actually need. All a need is a clean and simple storage organization for my photos and trustworthy storage. This is a disappointment, I am a big time Google i user but this setup is pushing me to switch over to one drive.

    It is a great to backup photos. However I have an issue with not being able to use the photos from Google on certain apps. And then there is no select all function to select all photos so I can try to put them in my phone gallery in which still wouldn't work after selecting 4 years with of photos by selecting each date. Took awhile to download before I could share. So when it wouldn't let me share them to my gallery, the ones I selected didn't download and were unselected.

Growing up using film, I find it amazing how much technology has devoleped through the years. Now don't forget to print your best images.

    Nice app... would be even nicer with these features (Thus only 3-Stars) - 1. Ability to rename pictures. 2. When accessible from lock screen, I would like the option to set it as viewer-only (read-only), and the option to specify viewable folders for lock screen. 3. The app needs (currently completely lacks) the ability to bring back (un-upload; make them only local again and delete uploaded copies) the pictures synced to Google Photos (cloud).

    I enjoy having all my pix at my disposal online. However, I may not be clear re: the privacy settings as to whether or not I am allowed to use Google photos without giving them total access to all my photographs. I have seen this dilemma on other photo apps, where, if you don't give total access to your photos, they don't allow access to their app. SO, I find my photographs suddenly going from 5MP down to 15KB. I used to get PAID for my photography... 2121 they will be deleted by June!

    Google Photos has always worked for me, but there's one thing that bugs me. This app needs to not only back up the device's photos, but also register which apps they came from so that they remain organized in their designated folders. After you back up photos and delete them off your device, they all get grouped up into one place in Google Photos - the main page. Unless you manually make albums for each folder BEFORE you delete from device, it gets a LOT harder to search for specific pictures.

    The only photo editor I have found that can take a odd shape square and pull the corners in independantly of the other corners to crop a picture that isn't quite square or rectangle. Then when you have the corners where they belong, pressing Done will snap the picture into a square. I love this feature. no more cropping by moving just the sides.

    Great! I love it. I particularly like searches and the utilities, like how it creates panoramas from my various pictures. Only thing I'm missing, and maybe it's because the feature is not yet rolled out in Norway, is the ability to add or change people/face tags. If I could do that, it would be an easy 5-star rating.

    This used to be a great app. But nowadays it drains my battery heavily and heats up the phone like crazy. Please fix this. I tried turning off sync and auto backup but even that does not fix this.

    Recently, I don't know why. But my photos and videos haven't been backing up. I nearly have more than 400+ photos and videos that need to be saved so that I can clear up space. Photos doesn't really have a support option to help and I've tried everything I can. What to do? I don't know. My storage is almost full. I don't want to rid my photos, unless it's a scheme to get me to pay for storage after June.

    This app lets me choose photos to make great memories and things, and it helps me organize what belongs to me. Overall, it is a somewhat good app. But the new back up add-on in the next update I don't think is good, because it could use a lot of data.

    I take a lot of photos to inspire paintings, Google Photos has made this process really easy, photos are improved, the lighting is adjusted, and as a result my paintings really pop with bright, lively colour and images that I could never have produced without the app. It's so easy to use I take it for granted, that is how a really good app should work. Thank you Google!

    This is the only Photo app on my current tablet and it horrible compared to the other on my older tablet. It's cluttered and has alot of unnecessary things. It's also required to have account so I'm wary of what images I download on the browser. You can buy prints and frames which would be abused by copyright infringers. Please don't support this app until it fixed these issues.

    I don't understand the presentation of memories, i can't navigate backwards, can't zoom. Then, there's no structure of any kind, all photos are stored in one place, although the source (my phone) is organized ! Search function doesn't work in many occasions, so don't be so arrogant Google !

    Seems to lock ànd crash alot more than before. I love lens I use it daily. The new editing is not my favorite but I'm sure I will get used to it eventually. Overall I think the changes are ok. I take alot of photos it's probably the most important function on my phone. Have not found an app I like better than google

    I so wish this automatically saved all my. Pictures, like it use to. All my pictures from years were on my old Samsung. Well, it got busted and now I can't access my cloud due to 2factor authentication & I thought they'd all be on my Google photos account. Of course, they aren't.

    I kind of hate this app. It archives or does something to my photos so they can't be accessed by third party apps unless they're "restored" or "redownloaded". I've contacted google and they had me reinstall the whole app which worked until it hit whatever arbitrary time limit that's set and started archiving them again. It's really unclear how to fix this and is causing me a lot of frustration.

    The very worst app. that has taken 60gbts. of my pictures and Videos, when it said free up 28gbts.. of internal storage all these photos are safely backed up, not only did it delete all the photos but it didn't even reduce my internal storage by a megabyte. Now with the new update things don't even upload on Google photos. This application is the bane of my existence, along with the rest of Google's terrible applications. Monopolies, ie. google blow. Why do you need all the permissions?

    If you want backups of your "backup": Google Takeout, direct album download or direct photo download (both are accessible through website only). The longer photos are stored here, the more they are compressed, not all of them, but a lot. 2-year quality drop is almost 50% in some cases. Ones from GDrive are fine though. Service itself is ok but not your primary photo storage or gallery (go get proper gallery app for that). For editing there are other tools as well. 3* for now.

    Can't pick what I want to archive. The suggestion is what it will put in the archive. No matter if you say yes or no. Then there is no way to get into this so called archive to be able to see pictures or even delete the ones didn't want in there in the first place. But since I do not pay for the app that came with this phone. The app gets keep reaching into my personal life and taking whatever it feels like taking. Why would I pay for something I still wouldn't be able to control what it takes.

    Many bugs. Not intuitive. Organising pics like a time n date is no good. Try searching 😭😭. Frustrated to find old images 🙈. Picasa was much better 😃 gets even worse....make a shared album and you will see how hard it is to find it later ...the tick button to save is missing.... editing photos is a miss.... cropping tool and straitening tool is bad... Snapseed is not available for example..

    After the latest update, photos that I've downloaded from internet show in the downloads folder even after i move them to a different directory in the phone's storage. They are shown in downloads even after i move them to a folder starting with "." and the also the ones which have a .nomedia file(these folders shouldn't even be indexed by this app, should they?) This is just dumb... Expecting a fix soon.

    Disabled the annoying Lens "feature" in this app, by disabling Google app, an app which I very rarely use anyway. I kept hitting it by mistake due to it being located where it's easily pressed by mistake. Would prefer the option to toggle it off rather than having to disable other apps to get rid of it.

    Can't find any way to reverse/flip an image. Looked it up and apparently, as a result over four years ago, this is apparently not a feature on this photo app. Like, really? You can rotate a photo with no problem, but when it comes to flipping/inverting a photo, it's apparently the lost language of atlantis, so now I decided to remove one more star from my initial review while writing this. Made by google facebook page still hasn't read my messages, minus one more star

    I appreciate the veriety of things I can do with this app. I haven't fully experienced every item available with this program yet, but, as I get time I check things out. I appreciate having a program with this ease to use. Thank you Google Photos.

    Useful application, I'll give it 4 stars as now it is synchronising with my other devices again, which is great. I use this application a lot for printing from different devices.

    This app is very good 99%. All my photos from 2016 is still there. The left 1% is because I have a problem about deleting photo in my album, will delete my photo in my Google Photos too. I don't like it, I like it like before that even if I delete photo in my album, it's don't effect my Google Photos... Please fix that... And I will give you 5 stars.

    I As in myself LOVE Google Photos!!! All the options like creating an animation or collage. Or even better when the app surprises you and makes an automatic animation of your pics or Stylized photo enhancement. Plus!! I love the highlights it brings up almost every gosh dang day! 1 year ago, 2 years ago this week etc. Jeez I could go on all day. If someone doesn't have google photos I'm like What?!! You gotta get google photos it's simply just the best. Plus if you lose your phone you know all

  136. DE8 BALLZ-avatar



    A+!!!!!! The best photos application ever created!!! I love the automatic backup option and the automatic creations and suggestions.....Some of my all time favorite photos that I have captured were actually automatic creations edited by Google Photos' Artificial Intelligence engine!!!! I spend a whole day capturing photos and then by that evening and after charging and connecting to an unmetered wireless fidelity network I will receive anywhere from four to twelve automatic creations a night! A+

    Worst privacy deleted photos from both device and cloud are showing up in recent highlights of Google photos memories and you can't even delete it, all you can do is disable it which is not helpful at all atleast give us a option to delete it and zero privacy because how can photos which are deleted still be showing up in memories after getting deleted this is ridiculous.

    I love this app...the suggestions are great and the assistant actually assists. I dont need another app to create memories because this app does it all for me; collages, animations and it even shows you images from 'then and now'.....I looooove it. What's the best about it all is that if my phone is stolen or gets lost, all I need is my email address and information to regain everything....this app is absolutely amazing!💝💖😁

    God it's a disaster that the app is telling me I have all the photos to upload again (which almost all of them have been uploaded and can be seen in other device) It also show both the file on the app as well as the one on my phone at the display front page and so every single I have uploaded & kept on my phone has been displayed as a duplicate. What the heck is going on???

    I used to be able to easily access unsaved auto-creations that Google made. In case I didn't have time to review and save the creations right away. Now I can only find one or two recent creations and older ones are hiding or lost.

    You can use this app with, other apps. Which is PERFECT for someone like, Me. (Not actually, IT Savvy.) I recommend it for photographers who are just starting, out. You may not want to stop using Google Photos after, the first time.... Try ALL of the extra features that it, has. Play around with, EVERYTHING!!!.....

    The only feature missing is the "all photos" folder, where one can go through all the pictures at once without having to open separate folders. To check the whatsapp and instagram photos, I have to go to their respective folders separately. Please add the feature where I can view all of the photos at one place.

    4/7/21 Thanks alot google support for NO HELP. Crashes every time I try to use 'free up space' feature for a month+. Customer service has not been helpful. They asked for my playstore apps list & a list of pending updates. Not exactly sure how that's relevant when all of my Google apps are updated, I've uninstalled/reinstalled Photos multiple times, unlinked/relinked my account, double checked my phone & Photos settings, and reset Androidwebviewer. Don't think it's cuz Facebook isn't updated 🙄

    Yay, use Google Photos! I had not enough space left and they asked me to do a back up. I did it. Now, basically all my pictures are gone on my phone, and I can only find them in Google Photos, not even sorted in folders!

    If only you could open individual photos and videos after you've selected several (while keeping the selection) 🤗 Also, I cannot seem to find a way to delete a photo when viewed in an album. There's only an option to remove it from the album, not altogether. It is inconvenient when the photo was not made recently.

    This app is a wonderful addition to my phone. Your memories from photos you take over the years pop up occasionally to remind you of the good times, great places you visit, and people you share time and space with. You can also order photo books to have a hard copy of the great memories shared

    Removal of free unlimited storage and recently they have added paywalls to editing features in their image editor. Closed off to everybody but Google One subscribers. Google are milking absolutely every aspect of all their pieces of software, excessively so and it is pushing me away from more and more of their software and services. Over the years I have dropped many of Google's services. Hell, even Huawei's AppGallery is a viable alternative to the Play Store now. Rot in hell, greedy Google.

    The app was just wonderful..but nowadays it's not good😒..the videos that I've backed up nd saved into my Google account nd deleted frm my Phone's storage aren't playing Whenever I try to start the always shows "Can't play video" Idk what's wrong with it! B4 the app was just amazing but now It's a source of irritation!😡 I've even signed out nd again signed in..not once but twice.. even reboot my phone...But the condition is the same.Pls solve this issue,the videos are very important🙏

    If you have multiple accounts it is a bit confusing. Maybe you have a work account on Gmail as well and if you are not careful you may back up private files in the wrong account. I also hate that there are no easy editing tools. That needs to be upgraded.

    Everytime I want to edit, delete, move or do anything with a photo it asks permission now, adding an extra step. It also asks to resync every photo edit, as if it were done on a separate device. Overall the app which was a unifying point for Android is becoming more of a hassle than using whichever photo app comes with your phone.
