Description of App

“The best photo product on Earth” – The Verge
“Google Photos is your new essential picture app” – Wired
“Upload the pictures, and let Google Photos do the rest” – The New York Times

Google Photos is the home for all your photos and videos. Automatically organized and searchable, you can find photos fast and bring them to life.

• VISUAL SEARCH: Your photos are now searchable by the people, places and things that appear in them. Looking for that fish taco you ate in Hawaii? Just
search “Hawaii”, “food”, or “food in Hawaii” to find it – no tagging required.

• UNLIMITED FREE HIGH QUALITY STORAGE: Backup all your photos and videos. Access them on any device or on the web at Your photos are
safe, secure, and private to you.

• BRING PHOTOS TO LIFE: Google Photos can automatically create montage movies, interactive stories, collages, animations, panoramas, and more from your
photos. Or you can easily create them yourself – just tap +.

• EDITING: Transform photos with the tap of a finger. Use simple, yet powerful, photo and video editing tools to apply filters, adjust colors, and more.

• SHARING: Instantly share up to 1,500 photos with anyone – no matter what device they’re on – just by sending a link. Just select photos, tap the share
icon, and then tap Copy Link.

• REDISCOVER: Be reminded of your memories from the past. Look back at what you did a year ago, or two, or even 10 years ago.

Note: Face grouping is not available in all countries.

This is a very Voiceover accessible way to label people in photos, search for people/place/thing, and cluster photos into different collection types. Basic editing of photos an album sharing are intuitive and usable.
