Google Photos offers free, unlimited high-resolution storage and backup for Android and iOS

Google has announced a new dedicated Photos app for Android, iOS and the web. Already hinted at, the new Photos app will still back up photos and videos to the cloud, but the company has revamped its offering, pairing it with Google’s excellent machine learning algorithms, allowing users to search for content based on activity, person and place.

Sharing has also been beefed up, allowing users to quickly select multiple photos with an intelligent gesture, and then create a link for public or private consumption.

The update will allow for free, unlimited storage of high-resolution photos up to 16MP, and videos up to 1080p.

The app is now available on Android, iOS and the web.
