Top Google Photos features you're not using (probably)

If you're reading this article that means you already know about Google Photos, if not let's see.

What is Google Photos?

Google Photos is a FREE service by Google that helps you store, share and search your photos on unlimited online storage aka cloud.

How to get Google Photos

Google Photos is available as


1. Unlimited Storage

Google Photo gives you unlimited storage on the cloud for your videos. But to use this, you need to upload your photos in "High Quality" instead of "Original Quality".

Now what the heck is this High Quality?
  • Photos are compressed to save space. If a photo is larger than 16MP, it will be resized to 16MP.

  • Videos higher than 1080p will be resized to high-definition 1080p. A video with 1080p or less will look close to the original.

What about Original quality?
  • All photos and videos are stored in the same resolution that you took them.

  • Limited free storage that uses storage in your Google Account.

  • If you have a Pixel phone, you get free unlimited storage at Original quality. You won’t be able to use “High quality.”

2. Search by Anything

This unique and awesome feature lets you search your photos by place, object or occasion.
E.g. Search Horse and all your photos with horses in them appear; amazing, right?
And the important part is you don't have to tag or categorize or anything special for this.
