Personally, it’s something I’ve asked myself several times. Taking into account that we all automatically make a backup of our gallery in the Google application, what is the limit of images and videos that we can upload to Google Photos ? The space in the cloud is unlimited, but it does not happen the same with the albums that we can use in the application.
The commercialization of smartphones with increasingly larger storage space means that we make and share photographs and video in large quantities. without realizing it, in less than half a year you can count on thousands of photographs stored on your iPhone or on your Android mobile, with its consequent support in Google Photos . However, you should better organize everything you upload to the photo application because, as soon as you reach 10,000 photos or videos, notify you with a message that the storage limit within a private album has been exceeded.
Limits on Google Photos albums
Last week the Google photo app received a new feature in the form of , a new Google Photos tool that takes advantage of the advanced facial recognition features of Android and iOS to create albums that can be automatically updated with photos of a person without the user has to add images manually. However, you will not be able to store more than 10,000 photographs in this album, pus is the limit of photos for private collections. If the album is shared, you can double that amount.
You can add a maximum of 10,000 photos or videos to a private album . In a shared album, each person can add a maximum of 10,000 photos or videos until the album reaches a total of 20,000 items .
It may be that for many users, storing 10,000 photos is more than enough but it is also true that many others may find that the space available falls short sooner rather than later, especially if we take into account that Google Photos stores all types of images , are blurred or are of low quality.
In addition, the new support page that explains the limit of content that we can upload to a private album and a shared album, also points out that the closer we are to the aforementioned limit, the worse the application will respond, as it is possible that some functions are not available. Unfortunately, google does not explain what functions it refers to.
