Google's Photos app hits 1 billion installs on Play Store

Himanshu, 26 May 2017

Google Photos has crossed yet another milestone. The app's listing on Play Store reveals that it has been installed more than 1 billion times. This comes nearly two years after the app was launched.

Recently, during this year's I/O conference, the Mountain View, California-based company revealed that the Photos app has over 500 million monthly active users, an increase of 300 million compared to previous year.

Google is also constantly adding new features to the app. Earlier this week, the company rolled out new Archive feature that lets users hide certain images from the main view of the app.
