Google really is pushing the cloud more and more. Now with the last 2 updates to Google Photos, there really is some compelling reasons to use Google Photos instead of Apple iCloud Photos.
Now with Google Photos, you can edit your pictures in the cloud, using cloud photo editing. But even more interesting is the fact that Google now lets you upload Live Photos on iOS and then view the Live Photos afterwards.
I personally didn’t have much luck with Apple iCloud Photos so have been using Google Photos instead. Photo editing in the cloud doesn’t interest me but being able to upload and view Live Photos is a great update.
