Google Photos is live with unlimited photo storage

Google on Thursday announced Google Photos, and the company’s revamped website is now live. We can’t find the new iOS and Android apps just yet, though we assume those are coming soon.

To get started, simply navigate to http://photos.google.com. If you already have an account, you’ll see your existing photo library, though with a few new options. The assistant shows you some of Google’s auto-created and auto-edited images, if there are any new ones. Additionally, you’ll see all of your existing albums, and this is where Google will begin to auto create albums for you. There’s an improved search option, too, which should allow you to search things like “snowstorm” to find photos you’ve snapped in the snow, though this didn’t work for me when I searched for a blizzard I drove through in Vermont this past winter. Searching for Vermont worked, however.

The best feature, perhaps, is that Photos now provides unlimited storage of photos and videos (up to 16-megapixel and video recorded in 1080p). That means I might finally be able to cut down on my Google Drive subscription, and that I don’t need to worry about adding to my already massive library of more than 30,000 photos.
