GooglePhotos 796x418 - How to free up space on your phone with Google Photos’ unlimited backup service

Keep in mind that Google Photos only offers you unlimited storage for optimized photos – resized photos from the original quality – without too much quality loss. The app also offers unlimited back up for your videos, in a slightly compressed form.

It only takes a minute to set up, and it’s free to use across all your devices. All you need is a Google account; here’s how to get started.

Android

Install Google Photos for Android and sign in with your Google account.

To back up:

  • Open the Google Photos app, and go to Settings.
  • Go to Back up and Sync, and turn the toggle on to start backing up photos from your camera roll as shown below.
  • To back up folder other than the camera folder, click on Back up device folders and select the folders to start the sync. 

Free up device storage

  • Open the Google Photos app on your Android phone.
  • Tap on Free up device space from the side menu, and then tap on Free up button to remove those photos from your device. The deleted photos will still be present in Google Photos.
