Google Photos subscription service

Google says goodbye to its Google Photos Subscription Service

Google is shutting down its Google Photos photo subscription service, which is yet to kick off come July 1st. The product has been trialed since February 2020. This is according to a report on Droid Life.

The trial was billed to be replaced by an $8 per month subscription starting from July 1st, 2020. However, Google reached out to subscribers of its Google Photos subscription Service with information that the service will be scrapped from June 30th.

The email from Google reads in quote:

Thank you for your invaluable feedback these last several months. You have provided us with a lot of helpful information about how we can evolve this feature, which we hope to make more widely available. Please keep your eyes open for future updates. Although we will be ending the trial program, we hope that you have experienced some joy from the prints you received along the way

The company cited some issues which prompted the cancellation including the following

  • The selection of photos to print is a hassle – you just don’t have the freedom to pick and print what you have. The app does it algorithm-selected automatically, which isn’t the best.
  • Another limitation is that choice of photos to print is limited to Categories. You’d have to manually switch out selections which may contain images you really want to print. Awful.
  • The cost is a bit on the high side, especially given the financial state of most subscribers following the COVID-19 aftermath. Similar street rates are quite lower than what the service offers.

Granted, a surprise selection of well-chosen photos is appealing, but this service wasn’t well thought out. In my opinion, it all right if the company leaves the Google Photos app as is, because this service is quite premature in its offering.

However, the cancellation of this service doesn’t affect other Google Photos print services, like its photo books. With the preponderance of smartphones and cloud storage, I’m kind of wondering whether it is still fashionable to print hard copies using services such as the Google Photos Subscription Service. We really hope that this service will be better revamped and repackaged in the near future.

My passion for PC hardware is my greatest motivation. I love technology and how it can make life easier and less complicated! When I’m not tinkering with hardware, I’m reading. I love to travel and I usually can’t wait to sit down on my PC to work.

I’m also a copywriter, designer, video editor, and writer. I also do some 3D with 3DS Max. Do you want to reach me? Use the Social Media buttons, or shoot me an email. I’ll be glad to hear from you!

  1. I built my gaming PC recently, and it has been like the best decision I have made in a long time. the best part about building a gaming PC is that some of them are alot cheaper than some gaming laptops and the deliver as much, just like mine for example, it did not cost me alot, but i have used it to play almost all the PC games that i came across, and it delivered as much as i expected it to .so far, the best game that I have played using my gaming PC is Call of duty warzone. am so lucky to have found your site, it really helped me with some information that is very useful to me, plus i love the structure and arrangement of your site it is really nice. if you want some interesting detail of the best game on my PC, then check out Call of Duty and Street of rage and you would not be disappointed.
