Gallery Go is Google's new app for organizing offline photos on your Android phone. Announced on Wednesday (24), the app aimed at basic mobile phones, as well as others in the Go category, such as Maps Go and YouTube Go. It has simple functions that do not depend on the Internet: image viewer, folder creator, trash can and Photo editor with automatic color adjustment and cropping tools.
Unlike Google Photos, which is more complete, the newly launched app does not automatically generate videos, albums and collages, nor does it back up media in the cloud. By contrast, it delivers fast performance and weighs only 10 MB. Here's how to use the key features of the new gallery app for your smartphone.
