G+-Photo-app

Chrome OS devices typically run light on local storage space, but as a portal to the internet, they’re often tasked with managing a person’s media experience. So when your growing photo collection starts to outnumber your machine’s gigabyte count, you’ll likely want to move things to the cloud, but this can be a tedious task. Enter the Google+ Photo app. Weighing in at a lean 15.52MB, Mountain View’s new software automatically uploads photos from your SD card to a private Google+ folder, even when the app is closed.

Similar to Instant Upload for mobile devices, this new features pushes Chrome OS machines once step closer to being a viable alternative to more traditional computers. Coincidentally, it also provides users with a reliable way to protect their 100GB collection of silly cat pictures with minimal effort.
