Google has taken the wraps off its new Google Photos product at its I/O conference today. Google says Photos is a private single home for your personal photo and video collection that you can access from any device. Photos boasts the ability to automatically organize your photos for you as well as built-in sharing capabilities. Photos can automatically back up your photos and videos from phones, tablets, computers, and memory cards from cameras. Your photo collection is then synced across your devices with Google Drive.
Google demoed the new Photos app at I/O showing the ability to browse current photos all the way back to the earliest captured shots in a swipe. The app organizes images and videos by days all the way to years for drilling down into a large collection. Photos are stored on the cloud, as well, so you can store you whole library without using local storage.
Google’s Photos service will store unlimited photos and videos, maintaining quality up to 16MP and 1080p, for free on all your devices. Photos is available starting today on Android, iOS, and the web.
