Google’s killer cloud storage offer isn’t perfect: The biggest problem with Google Photos

As the old saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Google’s big I/O 2015 keynote took place on Thursday, and it lasted for more than two hours.

When it comes to announcements that really made waves though, there were only a few to be found.

In terms of generating buzz, Google Photos was definitely somewhere near the top of the list. Google announced that it was releasing an updated version of its photo-hosting solution, and it now would offer unlimited storage for photos and videos.
