Google’s was one of the most cluttered and confusing photo storage system till date. Why? you might know if you are a Google user since long. Picasa web, Google Drive, and Google+ Photos, all of these were separately used by me and it was a task to make it a single folder for having an organized folder. Google just made it all easy, with the introduction of Google Photos, a photo organizing and storage service for smartphone users, with quite a lot of features, and most importantly, allowing unlimited storage of photos and videos.
A single, private place to keep photos and access them seamless across different devices, Google Photos automatically uploads and saves the pictures in the drive, and organize them based on the time of capture. The good part is, that Google Photos allows pictures of up to 16MP resolution, and videos of up to 1080p resolution.
The pictures and videos can be stored by the people, places, and things that matter. Apart from organizing, Google Photos allows the user to enhance color, lighting, and also adjust them to make the photo better. A Plus button allows users to create collages, animations, movies with soundtracks, and more.
Assistant View: Google Photos has a view that can be opened by swiping from the left, and this is where the new things are suggested by the app, based on the photos and videos. For example, if there is a bunch of photos from the user’s recent trip, the assistant view suggests to create a collage or story using them.
Selecting and Sharing Photos: Now, using Google Photos, users can select multiple photos and create a single shareable link. The users who are to view it, don’t need to use an app, or don’t even have to login to their account to view the photos. Selecting a group of photos is now possible by tapping and holding, dragging down to selecting all, instead of tapping on each photo you wanted to select.
Google Photos is going to be available today, for both, Android and iOS users. The same will be available on the web platform as well. At the I/O 2015 event, Google also introduced Android M.
