Download and install Google Photos on your Laptop or Desktop computer

If you want to install and use the Google Photos app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Google Photos in the search bar and press Search. Click on Google Photosapplication icon. A window of Google Photos on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Google Photos for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • FREE STORAGE?! Uh yes.

    by MissLaurenNicole
    I was living the full-storage life. You know...when anytime something important or special happens, you try to take a photo but you can’t? I even cheated the system frequently and took photos through the Instagram app and saved them to my phone so that I could still take photos. Yeah well...my phone started crashing (#toomanyphotos) so I had to figure out a different solution. In waltzes google photos. Blessed assurance, y’all! I deleted two apps to make room for this one on my phone. As soon as I had backed up enough photos, I re-downloaded the two apps and then continued backing up my photos. -which happened to take about 5 minutes of backing up before I could download those apps again. THEN, I downloaded another app to look for plane tickets to São Paulo (guys, this storage is FREE!!) and checked the progress of the backup between comparing flights and learning Portuguese. True story. I was delighted to find that I could delete several thousand photos off of my phone, yet still access them quickly through this easy to use app. BLOWN.A.WAY. Guys. If you’ve deleted the “Stocks” app, every text message and attachment, and have resigned yourself to drawing photos of your friends and family on special occasions because your phone is out of storage and you don’t want to pay $100...GET THIS APP. 👊🏻 Tso good.
  • Stores my photos as long as they are not 4K

    by Auric Nova
    It’s a bit confusing but what they are storing for me is pretty adequate for my needs. It would be nice to know I was storing the original quality but I don’t need another monthly bill besides Google Drive. It’s awesome the way they rotate some of the photos for you or give you that option. I wish they would do more in terms of the facial recognition so that you can correctly date some of your photographs were the dates were stripped in the uploading process which for me was a bit of a hellish experience because it crashed while uploading. I got past all that and everything I own is in my Google library I just don’t have them sorted properly. I’m hoping this will be done automatically in the future using the facial recognition technology otherwise I have to spend years fixing my library. Another suggestion would be if they would show you your duplicates which are close to exact duplicates so that you can delete them on your own. Sometimes it appears to be refusing duplicates but it’s hard to tell exactly what Google is doing behind the scenes occasionally I’ll see a duplicate missing other times I find odd photos in my trash. It would be nice to know exactly what’s happening with them folders. Those are all my suggestions and why I don’t have five stars I appreciate the free storage in the meantime hoping I won’t have to go with higher quality photos in the future.
  • Phenomenal

    by MoltenWater
    This is the first review for an app I have ever wrote in my 9 years of using Apple products from iPhones to iPods. Genuinely this is the absolute BEST solution to modern photo issues on mobile devices to date. I have all my photos downloaded to my phone, and they all download to my other devices as well. When I delete it on one device it does it on the other too. All my photos are fully HD and even Live Photo’s show up as videos/gifs. When the hopefully not inevitable day comes and I break my phone, I will never have to worry that I lost my photos, the biggest fear for first world citizens of the world nowadays, because there will always be a copy saved somewhere. On top of the convenience of this app, with it not only being full compatible with everything, but just overall simple and easy to use. It completely devours it’s competition due to its unlimited storage and functionality. Never again will I receive the obnoxious notification that my 5gb iCloud storage is almost full on a phone that has 128gb. With APPLE telling me that I have to PAY for more storage that is NOT even UNLIMITED and not nearly as compatible across non-Apple devices as google photos. Google has always been the go-to for tools online, and they outdid themselves on this one. Hands down to them. 5/5.
  • New Favorite Storage App!!!

    by Fdenneyy
    I am constantly taking pictures everywhere I go of everything I see. I also have a terrible habit of hoarding screen shots. I use to have to connect my phone to my laptop just so I could clear up space. Which then took up a lot of space on my laptop. Then I would spend so much time & money going through my pictures deciding which to delete and which to print off. I’ve tried many other online storage websites but they usually have a limit for the free account or they will delete your photos if you don’t log in often enough. This app not only makes uploading easy, it also hardly takes up any storage space on your phone, the upload is quick, it ask if you want to clear your phone storage once upload is complete, you can still access ALL of your photos by simply opening the app, you can access and upload your computer photos to your account easily, it has awesome tools you can utilize(collage, movie, gif, filters, etc), & if you’re like me you’ll love that you can still organize everything into albums!! Oh and did I mention it’s FREE unlimited storage with high definition?! Just finished uploading 6,038 photos/videos from my laptop & 949 photos/videos from my phone!! Download this app! You won’t be disappointed!! ♥️😍

  • Hands down best app for keeping & sharing life's most memorable moments

    by MeghaMillie
    Hands down, The best app for safe-keeping & family sharing of life's most memorable moments. Super easy to navigate all of the features like saving the all of the important details, like location, time & date, and captions of photos to share with others. As a busy, single mom of 2, this app is a lifesaver for me. I can share my children's milestones with family & friends with such ease so no matter how near or far they are, they can watch my babies as they grow. I have a closet full of craft & scrap book supplies that I have picked up here and there but with juggling my career and my 2 little girls, I feel I never get the chance to actually sit down, go through the pictures & videos, take a stroll down memory lane and bring all of my amazing Pinterest crafts to life. Google Photos has simplified the overwhelming fear of feeling like there's so many important details that I won't remember while scrapbooking my 2 girls. It simplified the task of going through and sorting my pics & videos I've backed up over the years and it's helped me to be able to organize and group memorable moments from their birth so that I can start to put these special books of their most memorable moments together.
  • Google Photos is the only way to go!

    by Angel8606
    It’s the only way to go, if ya ask me! I know, ya ain’t asking, right? Okay, well that’s just fine, because I’m just-a-tellin! What I’m telling is that I love this App, because of so many things I won’t be able to list em all! Totally impossible! But I can share a few reasons why I love it so much! One is because of the option of assistant! When you choose this it gives you an option to save or dismiss the Apps, altered & filtered or maybe, brightened & cropped, or maybe, actually I can keep going but you get the Jist of what I’m sayin, right? You won’t believe the things assistant can do to your pics to make them look better or make them look like a work of art! You just won’t believe your eyes, or that you even took the pic in the first place once you see what all it can and will do! Lol woo-wee! I love this so much! Don’t waste your time with any other App out there claiming to do this or that! This one doesn’t have to claim anything, just open it up and Vola! Lol Art, Beauty, Imagination & I can keep going..... you already know! I’m going to stop here and let you see for yourself! The App speaks for itself! Plus I’ve spoken way to much as it is! Jeesh! Lol Y’all will have a blast and enjoy! I know y’all will! Lol Chow!
  • Finally! Google, helping to create peace of mind when I run out of storage for my photos!

    by Rockdez
    This is the app I’ve been searching for! When I bought my iPhone 8 Plus, I purchased it in such a hurry that I forgot to tell the sales associate I wanted the highest storage iPhone. It was fine for the time being but, I needed to have a backup plan whenever I do happen to run low on storage space. I’ve been stuck with limited to no space available on my phone just a few months after purchasing it. I thought about possibly paying an online company like Box to backup my iPhone but trust is a big issue for me and I couldn’t get myself to take the next step in subscribing to some online account I barely knew. With Google Photos, I can now have peace of mind that my photos and videos will always be in one place safe and sound! Nothing bums me out more than to be at a concert and get a message pop-up during a video recording that I am running out of storage space. Now I don’t have to worry! I also really appreciate how Google Photos makes it easy to use and recommends albums and animations to save specific memories and moments! Best app ever! Totally worth the wait! :)
  • Ok for folks that take social photos

    by 16/50
    First, most of my computers are Apple, and I take a lot of photos with my iPhone. This Google app/ system is ok for users that want to take snapshots to post on social media. As an Engineer and technical craftsman, I can’t discern if there is any way to use it for these purposes. My requirements are for technical photographs showing processes and assemblies mainly to send to publishers (and to publish on-line) illustrations for engineering uses. From what I can determine, is’s not too good for that, although I have never purchased a “For Dummies” book and learned the full capabilities of Google Photos. However, I vastly prefer it over the Apple Photo program that takes control of all content, holds them hostage, and deletes them if you don’t want to play by their rules and pay their fees. I actually purchased a Windows-10 laptop for my phone and camera downloads rather than struggle trying to convert and download my pictures to something a user completely “Apple” can use. I do store my social photos ( family, weddings, and vacations, etc.) on Google Photos, simply because they separate them by date and Google doesn’t mess with them further. And, you can download photos to a thumb drive and take them to a corner drugstore photo printer and gets prints for Granny, something impossible with anything Apple.
  • I like it, BUT...

    by adsitimray
    I like Google Photos, but I wish their was an option under the "EDIT" tab, where I could add text or be able to write on the actual photo and be able to pick different colors, fonts, size of fonts and also underline, bold or put the text in italics. Also, my email is also linked to my son's phone, since I don't want to set him up with his own email account, until he gets a little bit older, that means that the Google Photo app is also linked to his phone, since he takes photos too. It would be nice to have an option to put a password protection on the albums that photos of each person is under. For example, if the album is labeled "ME", I wouldn't want him clicking on the tab and see photos of his mother that he shouldn't be looking at and scar him for life. Lol! Also, it would even come in handy when parents let their children play on their phone and they stumble upon photos that their parents didn't want them to see. Since my son also takes photos, one other idea that I had would be that anytime he takes photos and Google Photos downloads them, that the photos would be categorized by the device it was downloaded from, but you would still be able to organize the photos into albums later. Thank you!
