Google Photos (unlimited storage) launched at Google I/O developer conference

I have been waiting for this for quite some time now. Google has finally launched Google Photos at their developer conference today. It’s a new standalone product that gives you a home for all of your photos and videos.  (That’s right, no more registering/creating a Google+ account to store/backup your photos!)


A home for all your photos and videos
Google Photos gives you a single, private place to keep a lifetime of memories, and access them from any device. They’re automatically backed up and synced, so you can have peace of mind that your photos are safe, available across all your devices.

And when we say a lifetime of memories, we really mean it. With Google Photos, you can now backup and store unlimited, high-quality photos and videos, for free. We maintain the original resolution up to 16MP for photos, and 1080p high-definition for videos, and store compressed versions of the photos and videos in beautiful, print-quality resolution.

Beside unlimited storage from Google Photos, you can share your photos to your Google+, Facebook or Twitter account. Another handy feature is you can create a link for any set of photos and videos and share the link by emailing it to your family and friends. They will be able to view what you share without logging in and without having Google Photos themselves.

I recommend that you try out Google Photos and start backing up your photos. Plus, I also recommend that you have another backup in place and not just rely on Google. The ‘cloud’ solution is definitely a great and easy solution for backing up your photos or data. However, you must consider what will happen if Google servers get hacked or maybe your account gets hacked? It is something for you to think about…

Get Google Photos now, it’s available on Android, iOS and the web.
