Google Photos has now surpassed the 5 billion download milestone on the Play Store.

Even the news of the company’s free photo and video backup services to end soon didn’t stop people from downloading Google Photos as the app has now earned its 5 billionth installation.

Initially, when Google Photos was launched, there was no other gallery replacement app that could efficiently back up all of your photos on the cloud, making it instantly available on all of your devices. Though Google is going to remove its free backup service for photos and videos, it is still a great means to manage all of your photos and videos, sync them across devices in a friendly and suitable manner.

Since then, Google Photos has transformed into a comprehensive hub for your videos and images. It lets you edit, apply filters, order the physical copies of your favorites in photobooks, and many more. Now as Google announced that it is ending the free backup option, you would expect the interest to gradually decrease but Google Photos has still managed to surpass the 5 billion downloads milestone.

It is evident that the download figures for Google Photos have been increasing considerably as it comes pre-installed on almost every Android device. However, this wasn’t the case earlier, back in 2017 it achieved the 1 billion download milestone where it wasn’t pre-installed on devices.

The daily active user figure is expected to drop as now you will need an active Google One subscription for additional online storage.
