Google Photos, or you can call it Google album. Launched in just less than a year, its monthly active users has exceeded one million. This is undoubtedly a great achievement, at least shows Google’s product promotion is quite successful. Or that the product itself has a considerable attraction.

Today, Google announced on its Google Photos app for iOS now allows users to view and back up the Live Photos taken by iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. This means now you can not only upload and store Live Photos on Google’s photo storage service but also view them in their full glory.

Moreover, by understanding the needs of users in some time, Google offers free unlimited storage space in the album. For users, they only need to use Google Photos to backup their live photos without worrying about the space occupied. While Apple only provides users with 5GB of iCloud storage space for free.

From this point of view, Google is still very generous, of course, for the user, can enjoy the benefits is the most important. They do not care who provides this benefit.
