What's New

Create and print photo books

Archive photos

• Move these to Archive to clean up your photo grid. Just tap the ⋯ icon after selecting photos and tap Archive.
• Archived photos remain visible in search (just search “receipts”, “documents”, etc) and albums.

More fun stuff
• Reduced amount of storage space used by the app.

• SMART AUTOMATIC ALBUMS: Automatically get new albums with just your best shots after an event or trip, then invite others to add their photos.

• SEND PHOTOS IN SECONDS: Don’t waste data texting and emailing photos. Instantly share up to 1,500 photos with anyone.

Note: Face grouping is not available in all countries.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Google Photos doesn't run GPS in the background unless you give us permission by turning on optional features that require this.
