Google has officially launched a new application for a lighter photo gallery called “Gallery Go”. Google continues to provide a lighter version of Android, which is called Android Go, this is made to always provide powerful and important but lightweight applications for entry-level smartphone devices to have high performance. Google already has many official Go apps available today but today they have launched Gallery Go, which is a lighter version of Google Photos. Now available for download worldwide.
Being an optimized app for Android Go, Gallery Go has a very small download size of just under 10MB and the app only takes 20MB after installation. This is much smaller than the 90MB installation size for Google Photos. So Gallery Go can make the perfect app for entry-level devices from Alcatel, Xiaomi, and Nokia.
Despite the smaller size, Gallery Go still provides great features like automatically organizing photos on your device. This app can also work offline and doesn’t require the Internet to organize your images in categories like selfie, nature, food, screenshots and many more.
“You don’t need to manually label your photos and all these features run on your phone, without using up your data”
The category organization feature is currently not available in all countries as I still can’t see the different categories at this time. Gallery Go has a bright and simple look and it actually looks quite minimalist as you can see the top image.
Another handy feature that Gallery Go brings to entry-level users is photo editing. Yes, this app is not lacking in features that users want and will use. You will get a simple photo editor where you can easily crop, rotate and apply filters to your photos. Your device’s folders with pictures also appear in this app.
There are no options available under the “Settings” menu now, except for the option to “Feedback” or send feedback. However, I do expect Google to improve the Gallery Go over time feature set, offering options for backup and sharing of media via Google Photos.
