Google Photos was announced today- a NEW, standalone version that is being separated from Google+.

 

Along with the split come several changes –

  • Free unlimited photo and video storage, as long as those photos are under 16MP and videos 1080p or smaller. You can store larger, they will just count toward your storage limits.
  • New organization system- a blend of automatic google smarts helping you stay organized and find what you want quickly

 

  • Easy share system – public, private and a mix along with sharing to popular apps like Twitter and WhatsApp.

The App will be available now for Android and iOS and your photos will be accessible via the web too.

  1. Hm, this probably goes without asking. But what about the story feature?
    It’s baked in here or still at G+?
    I ask in fear, because I love that feature and I would be sad if they removed/stopped supporting it.

  2. Hi Toby,

    Do you trust this company enough for this? Do you have any second thoughts about providing them with dozens, hundreds or even thousands of pictures…?
