Next up—now that Facebook messenger sucks—iMessage on iCloud.com and iMessage on Android for cross-platform iMessage everywhere. I hope for a day where I can simply iMessage everyone.

Very nice, but it would be great if they could work on iCloud Drive for iOS. When I put photos on there, I cant even swipe between them. You have to exit each one and then click the next one and so on and so forth…

An infuriating and nonsense issue that shows that no one at Apple really tests some of these features.

Wow it doesn’t look beta anymore.

How many years did this take?

I’m surprised that Tim Cook let this become more like macOS and not like iOS, but i’m glad. This is much better in my opinion.

With non-stop memories with family, vacations, cats, etc., I’ve found my storage quickly filled with photos.

Both Apple and Google have an optimization function that kills the local high-res image to save device storage, but the number of pictures I have is using up all my cloud storage, as well.

I’ve been moving older albums and collections to Google Photos to free up iCloud storage. Unlimited photo storage (up to 16 MP, I believe) should help things, long-term.

I wish Apple did something like that.

Different business models. With Apple you pay them. Whereas Google get paid by selling ads.

I have a pretty large photo library so have ponied up £2.49 a month for the 200GB tier. https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201238. Free is great, but nothing is actually free.

Just tried. Nothing even close how good Google Photos online experience is.

For once I agree with you.

Google photos is amazing. Recognises everything when you search, it even made a very nice movie of my holliday.

Yep, it’s ridiculous. Just proves they are pushing out features just so they can say ”we can do that too”, instead of those features actually being better than the competition and making you choose them over others. It’s the reason I’m still using Dropbox. If iCloud Drive worked like it should, I’d already have a subscription for more storage. But nope, Apple cares too much about selling watchbands and dongles.

Wow, just think, if they keep improving the Photos service at this rate, in two years it could be better than Google Photos….was 6 months ago.
