Google Photos problem? Now, you can for Gallery Go
Google has introduced an alternative to Google Photos called "Gallery Go" that is merely 10MB.
In a bid to help users to store their photos on handsets having less storage and unreliable Internet connection, search engine giant Google has introduced an alternative to Google Photos called "Gallery Go" that is merely 10MB. In a blog-post on Wednesday, Ben Greenwood, Product Manager, Google Photos, wrote that it will help first time smartphone owners easily find, edit, and manage photos, without the need for access to high-speed internet or cloud backup.
According to Ben Greenwood. "Gallery Go automatically organizes your photos by the people and things you take photos of, so you can easily find your favorite selfie, remember where you had the best puff puff, and keep track of important documents. You don’t have to manually label your photos and all these features run on your phone, without using your data. You can create folders to organize your photos, and Gallery Go works with SD cards, so you can easily copy them from your phone."
Talking about simple-to-use editing tools, he said that it's easy to get great looking photos in just a few taps, adding "Use auto enhance—one of my favorite editing tools in Google Photos—for instant fixes. You can also choose from a variety of filters to get a new look, and easily rotate and crop, so your photo looks just right."
Since Gallery Go is light and offline by design, it is said to have been designed to work offline, to help you manage your photos using less data. "And at just 10 MB, the app won't slow down your phone and leaves space to store more memories," he said.
Notably, Gallery Go is available in the Play Store for devices running Android 8.1 (Oreo) or higher. While the app is available worldwide, some features such as organizing photos by people aren’t available in all countries.
