Good app

The Time Traveller 777

I’ve been using this for quite a while and haven’t faced any issues. As a developer I tend to judge how the apps are designed and I think this is a really well-made app. Hats off to the google team on this.

The only reason I reduced one star is because the support isn’t good. I had an issue with the app on my dad’s phone where it says storage full but his google drive is actually empty and I had even changed the setting in his photos app to optimised (unlimited) mode. It’s even buggy as it shows the files have 0 byte when I used drive to sort them by size (high to low) and the highest file showed zero but that doesn’t reflect back and he keeps getting an error that the storage is full. I have make queries to google twice from his account with no response yet. I hope these issues get fixed eventually.

Modification Required

Google photos is the best thing to happen till date but the main big issue is this only that it takes soo much of our internet for playing videos so plz make videos playable on average net speed also . So that it can we more easy to watch without downloading & Make the app so updated that it can upload photos and videos while the phone is locked in background ...when the phone screen is off google photos does not correct that thing too make some tab to see that how much file has been uploaded on google photos..... kindly take these suggestions seriously developers.

Best app


Real scenario - bought new phone, my iCloud account memory was full, installed google photos on both phones, and simultaneously applied for synchronisation at both phones. In just 12 hours, all my I cloud data as well my phone pictures were on google photos & all due to unlimited storage feature.
Lifesaver - After photos backup completion, I was able to delete pics/videos without a thought from phone & iCloud account. And can access my pictures anytime/anyphone without thinking about memory.
