I’m sure you guys have ever heard the Google Photos specially if you use an android phone, because I believe that it is pre-installed app. I believe 😃 . This app(or site… or service) is one of my favorites. It’s not only for android users you know. It can be used across almost all platforms. Since I’m sure you’re all familiar about it I’m not gonna explain too much on what it is. I’m here to actually share the features I love and the things I hate(although I haven’t thought of any thing I hate about it, I’ll try to figure it out later).
I registered for Gmail years back. All gmail accounts are granted of free 15 GB storage on Google Drive which is also connected with Google Photos. It’s the largest free cloud storage capacity being given online(as far as I know), because with iCloud you only get 5GB while OneDrive it’s 10 GB. Imagine the difference right?
I started loving the Google Drive prior to Google Photos. But in 2013, I had an android tablet. Most of my photos were on a microSD card that time. I opened all the apps of the device to know what they were for, until I tapped the Google Photos. Of course on startup it shows how it works and asked me to choose if I want to sync the photos in original quality or high quality. I opted for the high quality because it gives me unlimited space for all my photos AND videos. If you opt in for original quality it would use your storage capacity. Anyway the high quality option is good enough for me. I mean it doesn’t make the photo look terrible it’s still nice and decent so it’s fine.
I’m quite lazy in doing edits on my photos and that’s exactly the reason why I really really like Google Photos.
