A Lighter Alternative For Google Photos Is Finally Here

Play Slideshow

Todays Google launched the latest Go app - Gallery Go. Gallery Go comes in at just 10MB which is a fraction of the 130MB size of the Google Photos app.

Google, in 2017 introduced a bunch of new apps for markets where users are more concerned about mobile data usage. This is way less than the 90MB installation size of Google Photos, making the app flawless for entry-level devices from Alcatel, Xiaomi, and Nokia. "Gallery Go helps first-time smartphone owners easily find, edit, and manage photos, without the need for access to high-speed internet or cloud backup".

This organization feature is now not available in all countries and India seems to be one of them as we couldn't see the different categories. From the long pile of lite apps that we've interfaced with, Google is joining the queue with an addition of Gallery Go. This app also uses machine learning for your pictures. As for editing, the app carries the same "Auto" enhancing as seen in the Google Photos app. Instead, the app is designed for emerging markets where copious amounts of device storage and internet access aren't always available.

While taking up significantly less memory space on a device (only 10 MB), this application offers users a respectable collection of Google Photos features including photo-editing tools like auto-enhance, the ability to sort images into categories like "people" and "places", and zippy performance.

As long as you have Android 8.1 Oreo and above, Gallery Go is available for download via the Google Play Store worldwide, although some features like organizing photos by people are yet to be released in all countries.
