iOS Never Again, 10 Nov 2020As usual iOS users clueless about malpractice from tech companies. Who said anything about iOS users? This is a discussion about Google Photos. Which is perhaps the best product of its kind currently.
A few of the commenters sound exactly the same as you...
So many paranoid snowflakes in here. Google Photos literally made me change how I use any smartphone for the better. I am contented that my photos and videos 5 years ago are still available to me since it has UNLIMTED storage backup. yes, the quality degrades a little but it's a free service after all with free 15 GB full resolution
going back to article, it says photos WITHOUT depth info. the vast majority of phones these days, even cheap ones, offer portrait mode. also, this is an editing feature. will it ruin your life if you won't be able to turn the bg of your subject b&w??? God! people will complain on just about anything these days

Do you even understand what privacy means and when it is protected? Google collects anonymized data used to serve you ads from companies that want to sell you products. That's their business model and data collection like this has been used since the first shopping catalogs appeared over a century ago. This is very different than government surveillance from the likes of China and the countries it sells its AI driven platforms (Russia, North Korea and many dictatorships in Africa). If you can't tell the difference, you have bigger problems than Google Photos.

If you have... moreNo matter which platform you got to - Windows, IOS, Android, spying and data collection under the name of user experience improvement programs and other things is very common.
You haven't read the terms and conditions pal. Go and read them thoroughly again.

There is nothing called as making life easier at the cost of giving away your privacy and precious data especially when similar things can be done via other apps.
Got a lot of Google HW here; 3 Pixel phones, 4 Nest cameras, 3 hubs, thermostat and Chromebook. If they move forward with this pay plan I will NEVER buy another phone, camera, hub from Google. I'm done with their nickel and dime crap.
Soon most of the G suite will be freemium. More reason why Huawei’s HarmonyOS and Harmony ecosystem are so important
nikku, 08 Nov 2020if this is the case i am turning off my google photos online backup, may be in future they wil... moreLol. Do you see ads on Google Photos? It's a great service and to me it's worth the nominal fee for it. Sure, they use some of my data, but they provide full disclosure, they are properly regulated, and they make our lives a little easier.
BigDisplay, 08 Nov 2020So funny with Google. Huawei lacks of Google services... And because of Google behavior, i ... moreIt’s really a matter of choosing your own poison. All the companies are mining your data with or without your acknowledgment. In that case Google, Apple and some other US based companies have to go to court, pay fines (sometimes of course). But with Huawei, that will never happen as they are backed up by govt. So Google it is as my poison. But competition is always good for consumers and hope Huawei will succeed.
Note 20 Ultra, 08 Nov 2020So Apple can charge while Google can't! Google is not running charity. More over, no one ... moreMan Google is getting money with ads and by selling your data. If that's the case I expect to have the service for free. Not that I am paying them and they still sell my data and show me ads. They need to keep their main business role which are ads and stop that dumb subscription bulls
Note 20 Ultra, 08 Nov 2020So Apple can charge while Google can't! Google is not running charity. More over, no one ... moreWell, I agree with all that you just said:) Maybe we are on the same page after all:)
I have never seen the Colour Pop feature in the Google Photos App, is it there in the current version?
if this is the case i am turning off my google photos online backup, may be in future they will ask us to pay money to access our own photos. shit with google............................
AnonD-966083, 08 Nov 2020Spoken by a true Google employee. You're disg*usting!So Apple can charge while Google can't! Google is not running charity. More over, no one is really buying that corporations work hard to protect its users data! It is only a myth! Everyone steels and mines user data..... Some openly admits and allows users to manage while others giving just smoke screen promises, charges users ton, yet continue doing what they do.... Just pay the media is share to keep their mouth shut
