By all accounts, the newly released photo service comes well in-handy with users looking to timely and coherently collect their photos and easily stroll through their thus collected memories.
The photo and video storage is both unlimited and as long as the photos are each 16 megapixels or below.
Higher resolution photos come with a different price tag after the free 15GB are filled with your memories. It might sound similar to the previous photo service powered by Google, only it is not.
The connectivity to Google+ has been slashed out. This entails users don’t need an account on the Google social network anymore in order to download, share or edit their photos and videos.
According to some tech columnists and bloggers, the revamped Google Photos fares better than Apple, Amazon or Dropbox and Microsoft photo services, yet it is not the perfect team up of features.
By making clever use of machine learning, the new service searches through untagged images with a real ease by simply having a keyword provided in the search bar. The photos, automatically send to the cloud are automatically grouped according to generated tags. They also remain private.
Image progression recognizance also features as a characteristic that might convince many of how clever the Google Photos is. From baby to teen, Google Photos will group photos of the same person easily, without users needed to put in any private data.
Some of the users who have already tried the service commented that Flickr for that matter does a far better job at allowing users to view their images by category, keywords or recognition. While it lacks free storage in comparison with Google Plus, Flickr does provide one TB of uncompressed storage.
One less hailed feature of Google Photos is the fact that when it automatically downloads the photos into the cloud, it also creates movies, collages or GIFs with those respective images. Just in case you might need them.
Nonetheless, Google Photos which has been released for iOS and Android both, and in the web version for Mac and Windows, ranks best at allowing users to display photos from the cloud on the small screens of their phones.
Zoom in and out without losing quality of the image and look at classification by both year and month when the image is fully zoomed out.
Great way to navigate through what is most surely a jungle of uncategorized memories that almost all have stocked up on our devices.
