Google Makes Google Photos Available On iOS and Android


GOOGLE PHOTOS

Google is still trying to play catch up with both Facebook and Instagram. It is now offering its Google Photos service as an app for both iOS and Android.

Do you remember Google+? That’s OK, no one does.

How about Picasa? Does anyone use it.

As Google explained in a blog post, “We wanted to do better. So today we’re introducing Google Photos—a new, standalone product that gives you a home for all your photos and videos, helps you organize and bring your moments to life, and lets you share and save what matters.”

Google Photos offers unlimited storage space for all of your pictures that are no more than 16 megapixels. It will also automatically catalog all of the pictures that you take with your mobile device.

The company promises that users now have the choice to share their photos and videos however they want across any service that they choose, “from Hangouts to Twitter to WhatsApp. But even then, it’s still remarkably difficult to share a lot of photos just with friends and family and keep the ones shared with you—it usually involves a lot of downloading and re-uploading across a number of different services. We wanted to make sharing much simpler and more reliable.”

With Google Photos people can now take any set of photos and videos, or any album, simply create a link to share hundreds of photos at once. The recipient can see what a user shared without a special app or login, then immediately save the images to their own library with a single tap.
