Google Photo Update Helps Save Space On Your Device
Gareth Andrews / 5 years ago
We all love taking pictures, first it was that camera you took around and wound up after every shot. These days though you either have that high-definition camera or if you are caught unprepared for the moment you use your mobile phone. The only problem with using your mobile phone to take all those life changing moments on camera is that you often store other things, such as your music or apps on there too. With so many things on your phone, Google Photo hopes to make keeping those memories slightly easier.
Stated in a post on Google+, Google Photos gets several new features in an update released today. First up is its ability to “Free Up Space” via a new button on the settings screen. This button starts to bulk-delete copies of photos, but don’t worry, it only does this to photos that have been backed up.
Users can now also downgrade their photos from “Original Quality” to “High Quality”, a process which will create a smaller file by compressing your photo, this means you can store more photos, as long as you don’t want to view them in their full glory all the time.
How often do you find your space running out on your phone or tablet? Are these changes welcome additions or just options for those holidays pictures you might take next year?
