Google Photos

Photo storage and sharing service

Google Photos is an intuitive photo storage and sharing service known for organizing and syncing your pictures and even videos, animations, collages, and albums with ease.

More precisely, it automatically backs up all images and videos captured with your smartphone. You just need to install the app to be given two backup quality choices: optimized and original.

Then, feel free to search for People, Places, and Things. After all, Google Photos recognizes the faces of humans and pets too, geographic landmarks, buildings, food, and more.

Besides enjoying it on Android and iPhone, there’s also a web-based version of Google Photos for uploading pictures and videos from PCs and Mac OS.

However, there are caveats you need to consider. This version provides only online previews of what you’ve stored in Google’s cloud.
