Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is all set to emerge as a top player in the cloud computing world. As services like iCloud and Dropbox charge hefty amounts for storage space, Google charges nothing. The newly launched Google Photos feature moves away from Google+ and will offer free storage across all platforms. Announcing Google Photos, Google’s Director Anik Sabharwal said that the feature would help the users in organizing, storing, editing and sharing photos and videos.
Remembering every big or small moment in life is very difficult but Google Photos will make this easier. Sabharwal said that in Google Photos, users can set up photos according to events and instead of scrolling through multiple files and folders, just search the event and easily access their photos.
Great New Feature
With unlimited free storage feature for users, the only requirement is that the each uploaded picture should be lesser than 16 megapixels and videos should have a maximum resolution of 1080P. For sizes bigger than these, Google will automatically compress the photos, and the visual quality would remain intact. The users do not have to remember to save their photos as there is an auto-save option.
Even services like Flickr offer 1TB free space for storing photos, but the users have to waste time in viewing the full page ads from Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO). Even with Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) service comes free but with a conditional $ 99 Prime subscription.
Benefits of Google Photos
Additional benefits like an Assistant feature that helps in editing and curating of the photos. Creating overexposure balance, converting images into GIFs and making personalized videos are all part of the application. Google VP Bradley Horowitz said that the key to getting the last percentage in the computer clarity platform was just around the corner.
Google Photos is just what a casual photographer needs. They have just to edit the photos and get professional quality images without much effort. With this innovation that is yet to face any competition out in the market, Google seems to have made a smart move. The feature is sure to grab users.
