  • Google Launches New Cross-platform Photos App, Available Now for iOS


    On Thursday, Google announced a new Google Photos cross-platform application at its I/O developer conference.

    The application is now available free of cost in the App Store and allows you to store your photo library in the cloud via Google Drive rather than on your device, saving you from having to waste local storage space. It competes directly with Apple's iCloud storage system, although Google has a very big advantage in that it's offering the online photo storage space absolutely free with a Google account.

    Google Photos includes a variety of useful features for finding photos that you want to look at and sharing them with your closest friends, including visual search, automatic photo backup, editing tools, and animation/movie creating functionality.



    Because it's cross platform, you can see all of your photos from all of your devices, whether they're iOS, Android, or another operating system viewing your images from the Web app.

    Google's promo video can be seen below:



    To download and use the new Google Photos app, you can head over to this App Store link.

      Is this to compete with carousel from Dropbox or is there a difference? Has anyone used this?

      Sounds like the same thing, but Google generally offers more space, I believe. My Google account is like 10 gigs but my Dropbox account is only like 5 gigs.

      If i can use Google's program on Windows to view and edit all my saved media then I won't think twice about switching to Google.

      I'll wait until I fill up my Carousel account first, though. So far it hasn't let me down!
