Amazon Photos for Android finally gets redesigned, one year after the iOS version
The Amazon Photos app for Android has finally received a big redesign today, a full year after the iOS app first got the same treatment. Talk about discriminating between mobile platforms!
Anyway, in the new app you can expect to be greeted with a much more modern look every time you use it. Photos take center stage, and there’s a control panel at the bottom that gives you quick access to search and filters, and you can search for objects and places alongside people. This is also where you access curated features such as daily memories.
The floating Amazon logo button in the top left gives you access to printing services, your account and the app’s settings, while the paper airplane button in the top right lets you quickly share photos with people, just as the graphic implies.
If you have Prime, you get unlimited storage for your photos, but not videos – these are capped at 5GB. If you need more space for videos, there are plans starting at 100GB of storage.
The new version of the app is currently rolling out to Amazon Photos users, but it could take a while before it reaches everyone. Still, it’s on the way now, finally.
