Google Photos reduces the size of photos on bad connection

Google announced a small improvement to Google Photos to allow users to use the backup feature of Google Photos even on slower connections.

According to the president of Google Brazil Fabio Coelho, Google Photos is now able to identify when the user is on a bad connection and automatically reduces the size of the image to facilitate the backup.

“(…) They can use Google Photos to save their images in the cloud at a lower resolution and share them, also in a smaller format, even when they are on a bad connection, type 2G. When the connection is better, the application will automatically update the images at a higher resolution ”, explained Coelho.

The functionality, launched exclusively for Brazil, is among the first initiatives of “Google for Brazil”, an effort by Google Brazil to introduce “global launches created for the reality of countries like ours”.
