Prior to the introduction of Google Photos, image storage was of very poor quality. However, there were some automatic photo backup services that users could use from their phone. But, they were not very well integrated with user’s gallery. The introduction of Photos service just solves this issue for the users. The service provides millions of people with free high-quality photo/video storage. This relieves many users of the anxiety of seeing low storage warnings in their phones. It is also worth to note that prior to Photos introduction three-year ago, Google+ Photos was also available, but it was not so popular.
