Google Photos will soon solve all your storage needs

May 28, 2015

Google is ready to store your personal photo stash -- and you won't have to log into Google+ to make it happen.

Google Photos, as the new service is called, will premiere today at the tech giant's annual developer conference in San Francisco, according to TechCrunch. The new digital photo album has been rumored for weeks.

Here's what TechCrunch has been able to glean so far:

  • Google Photos will take over the photos.google.com address that currently directs to Google+.
  • It will have unlimited storage, though it's unclear if there will be any exceptions to that promise. Previously, if you've been storing photos on Picasa or Google+, it ate up a portion of your Gmail/Drive storage limits.
  • Photo sizes will likely be capped at 16 megapixels. Video resolution can be as big as 1080p.
  • Google (goog) will also debut a new Photos app for Android that has better photo sorting capabilities.
