Google Photos Web starts showing this ‘important’ information for backed up images
Google continue to make minor tweaks and changes to Google Photos. The company is currently making some changes to the web version of Google Photos. 9to5Google reported that Google Photos web is now pulling more details into the ‘Info’ section of the uploaded image.
Google Photos used to include information like “Uploaded from” and “Shared by” on the web, and now it includes a new section called “Backed up”. This is a web-only option and that means it is not available on Android and iOS version of Google Photos.
Furthermore, the new section provides a bunch of new information about uploaded photos. This includes details like date/month, location, device, EXIF and file data.
In addition, the new section will also let users know about the quality of uploaded photos and notify users if the photo doesn’t take up space from the 15GB free cloud storage that comes with their Google account.
Google Photos was previously used to show users backup sizes. However, it has now been moved to the third plane, and Google has now removed the backup size detail for photos that don’t take up storage space.
For those who don’t know, Google used to offer unlimited cloud storage for backing up photos in High Quality mode in the past. However, it changed its policy last year and now all backups count towards 15GB of free cloud storage.
Furthermore, the company also announced its Google One subscription-based service to give users more cloud storage space along with added benefits like more editing options within the Google app. Photos, Google Meet features, and more.
According to the report, the update is currently rolling out in phases and is reported to be available to a limited number of users. Also, there’s no word on when Google will roll out this new feature to a wider audience.
