Google Photos is one of the most preferred cloud storage options for backing up your photos and videos, especially for Google Pixel phones and other Android users. This platform can be used to store old photos and access them anytime using any device that lets you sign-in to your Google account. Google Photos categorizes photos very systematically based on face, location, time and many other album options. Even photos and videos you delete from the Google Photos app are kept in the Trash folder for 60 days before being deleted forever. It is possible to get them back before they disappear. However, this only happens if the Back Up and Sync feature of Google Photos is activated.
