    Google+ Photos is Shutting Down: How to migrate all your pictures!

    The Google+ photos had been widely popular among users and this made the company launch a complete new Photos app dubbed the Google Photos. The new app was launched in the Google I/O, 2015. With the new app you can automatically backup, edit and share their photos and videos on the go. The best part is that the app comes with unlimited storage facilities-that means high storage for your high quality images would never be an issue (at least Google claims so). We approve Google's statement, but in a country like India many don't have data bandwidth to upload bulks of images to the web!
