Google announced multiple updates and launched new services at its I/O 2017. Google Photos now comes with a host of changes and there are three major updates Google announced. The new updates will be applicable to Android, web as well as iOS users and will slowly roll out in the coming weeks. Google already offers free, unlimited cloud storage to Google Photos users.
Google Photos is one of the more interesting apps available on Android and iOS devices. It s a multi-purpose app that serves as a gallery, lets you organize your photos and videos, and also lets you edit them. Now, the Android version of the app has been updated with interesting features, such as new photo editing tools, electronic stabilization for videos, and more.
The biggest issue most users have had with Apple iPhones is their restrictive nature when it comes to storage expansion options. If you have ever used an 8GB or 16GB iPhone, you d know what we mean. The sheer sense of exasperation you feel when your iPhone pops a Storage is Full notification on your screen, right when you are in the middle of a perfect video or a shot. Quite tactfully, Google s latest commercial for Google Photos targets the exact painful spot.
Earlier today, Google announced on its blog post that it will stop supporting its photo storage service Picasa in March. To begin with, Google will discontinue the Picasa desktop app on March 15, followed by Picasa web albums in May 1, after which photos and albums will no longer be editable.
Google has updated its Photos app which brings shared photo albums, bug-fixes and more. As the name suggests, the feature allows users to share photos with other users via a link. The recipients can then open the link directly on their photos app or in the web browser. They can then open the link and click on join the album.
Google launched its standalone Photos app at its I/O 2015 event, which includes social-media friendly features, improved search functionality and new editing tools. Google also added unlimited storage for save photos and videos on cloud. Now, the latest Android update that is being rolled out today, adds some handy features to reclaim storage space on your smartphone.
Earlier this year in May, Google launched the revamped Photos app along with unlimited cloud storage to backup photos and videos.

Unlimited cloud storage is a great feature that came with the new Google Photos app. But what is surprising is that Google does not stop backing up your media content on its cloud service even after uninstalling the app. David Arnott, the editor at the Nashville Business Journal, recently found out that Google continues to back up photos in its cloud storage even after you uninstall Google Photos.
Google recently rolled out its revamped standalone photos app at I/O, featuring unlimited storage and amped up search.

For a photographer in India nothing could be more biblical than an interaction with legendary photographers like Raghu Rai and Prashant Panjiar. The Delhi Photo Festival offers this opportunity to many budding shutterbugs, but the stark reality is that not everyone can reach the capital city. Google is doing its bit and will conduct Google Hangout sessions so that budding photographers in the country can interact with the likes of Prashant Panjiar and it will also showcase some off the best pictures on the official Google+ Delhi Photo Festival page. It wants Google+ Photos to be the go to online product that people use in India for showcasing, editing and sharing photos, if not the world over.

This would mean that you will now get a total of 15GB of free space to store your content, photos and more across these Google services till you reach this maximum free storage limit.
