Google introduced its brand new Google Photos service on Thursday, a new home for your photos and videos. It makes things such as sharing, organizing, searching and more much, much easier. Perhaps the best announcement, however, is that the application will now allow users to store unlimited photos for free.
There’s a small caveat: resolutions are limited to up to 16 megapixels, and videos up to 1080p, and Google said that there is going to be some compression. We also can’t tell if it means you’ll be able to download the original uncompressed image ever, but it seems like maybe not. Still — for a lot of folks that’s huge news, and you won’t have to worry about how much space you need for large libraries.
Google Photos will launch for Android, iOS and the Web today.
