Google Photos Makes It To 100 Million Active Users a Month.

It’s been a little easier for Google to reach that number — not only because of easy sign-up for an enormous Gmail user base, but also because the service is actually a successor of the Google+ photos service.It’s no secret to anyone that Google + was a bit of a letdown and people all over the world didn’t respond to it in the manner its creators might have hoped.

To put it in perspective: Pinterest and Twitter had to wait 5 years to hit this mark, so it is safe to say that the Google Photo service, available for Apple and Android, is a success. Google launched the Photos app in May, giving users unlimited storage space (as long as they limit their photos to 16 megapixels and videos to 1080p resolution). Google Photos is a unusual product because it technically launched at the end of May this year, but numerous features of the service have existed for a long time as part of Google+, including the Auto Awesome animations and edits, the auto-upload, and limited versions of the search features.

Along with the announcement Google shared a number of facts about the service, with probably the most practical one being that they claim to have freed up 3,720 terabytes of storage on users’ smartphones thanks to its auto-upload feature. Using an algorithm that organizes them, the search system lets you find any photo by typing a word, like dog or baby —even if you didn’t add a description to the image. To celebrate, Google released a series of fun facts about people and their photographing habits: Food is the second subject more photographed after people, and dogs beat cats as the most digitally-captured animal. Also, Paris, New York and Barcelona are the three most photographed places, as cars are in the second place of the list of objects. “Baby” is the top searched word and using “me” to search for selfies (it shouldn’t surprise anyone). Also, it seems Google Photos stands out from all the other photo websites in the world ever, since the beginning of time, and claims that its users post pictures of dogs and not cats.

Online photo storage has been an issue for most internet users, and it seems that Google Photos provides a nice service, allowing them to catch users from other services like Dropbox. As far as searches go, the most searched for thing are babies, which might sound a bit creepy, but let’s hope the interest in babies is not in a bad way. Also, another thing that made it easier for it to reach the amazing 100 million active users mark is the outstanding number of people that signed on for a Gmail Account.
