Tech Bits: Use Google Photos to Store Your Smartphone Photos & Videos

Date

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Looking for a new way to manage and organize your smartphone photos and videos? Download the new photo gallery app from Google called Google Photos.

The app automatically backs up your photos and videos, allowing you to free up storage space on your smartphone. Choose a storage size: unlimited free storage (for phones and point-and-shoot cameras) or limited free storage (for higher resolution cameras).

The app also organizes your photos by the people, places and things in them. This allows you to find your photos faster so you can easily edit them or add filters.

To access your photos on your smartphone, use the Google Photos app. For other devices, go to photos.google.com. Keep in mind that when you delete a photo(s) on your iPhone or Android, it won’t be deleted from Google Photos. You have to do that directly in Google Photos.
