Gigabit speeds mean faster photo uploads with the new +Google Photos. We're excited to check it out.
 
Introducing the new Google Photos

Earlier today we announced Google Photos -- a new approach for storing and organizing your photos and videos, built from the ground up. Google Photos is a standalone app that gives you a home for all your photos and videos, helps you organize and bring your moments to life, and lets you share and save what matters.

If you want to give Google Photos a try, it will be available later today across Android, iOS and the web.

I will not be using Google Photos, or any cloud-based photo storage, until I have gigabit service. With all the photos and videos I currently have, I calculate that it would take 10 months of 24/7 upload time to transfer it all. Of course, as I'm constantly creating new content, the backlog of photos and videos keeps increasing.

So, I need +Google Fiber in our city now!

Nic Armstrong has been making music in Austin for the last five years with his band, +Nic Armstrong & The Thieves. Nic doesn’t have a typical Texas accent because he’s originally from England. If he could rock out with buddies back home too, that would be brilliant. How would you jam with Fiber? #speedmatters
Learn more about Nic and his band at nicarmstrongmusic.com

Thinking of our friends in Texas and Oklahoma. We're so inspired by the nonprofits and responders working on the ground to provide lifesaving resources during flood recovery efforts. From +Google.org:
 
Floods of historic proportions swept through Texas and Oklahoma on Memorial Day weekend and have continued into this week. Lives have been lost, a number of people are still missing, and property damage is extensive and widespread. Search and rescue efforts are ongoing, and cleanup has begun—but rains are still in the forecast.

In response, +Google is committing $300,000 in Google.org and employee support to flood recovery efforts in the hardest-hit counties of Texas and Oklahoma. We’ll continue to work with the many nonprofits and responders who are providing lifesaving resources on the ground and we’re searching for additional opportunities for Googlers from the Austin office and our Mayes County Data Center to lend their hands.

In both Texas and Oklahoma we’re devastated by the destruction but are inspired--and proud of--the courage of the first-responders and neighbors who have been braving the weather to support our communities. We hope these funds will help to ease the suffering of so many and to accelerate the rebuilding efforts in the aftermath of the floods.
