We’re taking more photos and videos than ever before. But the more moments we capture, the more challenging it becomes to store, organize, and share those memories.
Photos and videos are littered across old devices making storing and organizing very difficult. Plus it’s almost impossible to find the one photo at the moment you need it, and sharing a bunch of photos and videos is frustrating, often requiring special apps and logins.
We wanted to do better. So we made 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.
A home for all your photos
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 store unlimited, high-quality photos and videos, for free.
Organize and bring your moments to life
Google Photos automatically organizes your memories by the people, places, and things that matter. You don’t have to tag or caption any of them, and you don’t need to laboriously create albums. When you want to find a particular shot, with a simple search you can instantly find any photo — whether it’s your dog, your daughter’s birthday party, or your favorite beach in Santa Barbara. And all of this auto-grouping is private, for your eyes only.
Easily share and save what matters
With Google Photos, you have the choice to share your photos and videos however you want across any service you choose, from Hangouts to Twitter to WhatsApp. But we also wanted to make sharing even simpler and more reliable.
You can now take any set of photos and videos, or any album, and simply create a link to share hundreds of photos at once. The recipient can see what you shared without a special app or login, then immediately save the high-quality images to their own library with a single tap. So now it’s easier to hang on to the photos you care about even if you weren’t the one holding the camera.
