Yesterday, during its annual I/O conference, Google has unveiled its new Photos cloud storage service which puts to danger its competition. Available for iOS, Android and through a web app, as well, the new service lets users upload as many images and videos as they want, totally for free. So, this means that you get free unlimited storage, which is quite a feat!
The single restriction is that Google Photos will only allow images up to 16 megapixels to be stored at full resolution while those taken in higher resolutions will be compressed, without affecting the image quality. The same goes for videos, and you can upload clips up to 1080p, while those with a higher-resolution will be downsampled. Those who have a paid Google Drive account can choose to store their photos and videos in full, original resolution.
The service also comes with new search features which will automatically analyze and tag uploaded photos or videos. The same editing tools which are available with Google+ will now make their way to the new Google Photos service.
If you're interested in the new Google Photos service, you should know that the app is now available to download from the iOS App Store on your iPhone or iPad. Just follow the link from below to get it and start uploading all those pictures and videos which are eating up precious storage space on your device.
