Google Photos is a relatively new service from Google, but certainly one of the best and most popular. With an application for Android and iOS, in addition to web interface, the storage platform offers unlimited free backup for any user, something unthinkable a few years ago. And now, it removes one of the few limits it has.
The service’s photo albums removed a restriction that previously prevented the user from organizing more than 2,000 photos in one place. According to several Reddit users who have already tested the change, the albums now support 3,000 images.
The advantage, however, is hidden: you have to upload the images inside the album. This means that it is only possible to drag images manually, sending from the main gallery, up to the limit of 2,000 items. For simultaneous transfers, on the other hand, the restriction is still 500 photos at a time.
The news is already working on Google Photos for the web and should arrive soon for the versions on Android and iOS.
Google Plus will gain news and open beta program
While Facebook, Twitter, and other major social networking platforms vie for user preference, Google+ continues to try to position itself as a favorite. Unfortunately for the search giant, its social network has always had low access rates, even after being remodeled a few times.
Still, Google+ is very much alive and has its loyal users, enough to not only keep everything running, but to invest in news. The company is working on new additions and improvements, and invites users to sign up for a beta testing program on Google+.
The company says “If you’re as passionate about Google+ as we are, sign up to become a beta tester of our product. We are looking for people who want to test new features as well as discuss with our product team and other beta testers how to make Google+ the place to share their interests.”
Google has also outlined the key attributes it’s looking for in potential beta testers:
- Be a user who actively posts on Google+
- Motivated to learn more about Google+ and contribute to product discussion
- Attitude to provide high level feedback on our product
