I hate Google Photos. But I fear I won’t be able to live without it.
I called the Google Photos photo sharing and management app the Turkey of the Year in my 2020 USA TODAY round-up of the apps and gadgets that screwed over consumers last year. Reason: Google Photos was free for all, but starting June 1st, Tuesday, it switches to a paid model after 5 years of bait and switch.
Get people to put as many of their photos up there, and once they’re locked into a system, start charging a monthly fee to access them.
