Google didn't backtrack on its first-gen Pixel and Pixel XL promise of lifetime full-resolution Google Photos backups

5 Months After Launch, Google Photos Has 100 Million Active Users Who Love To Take Pics Of Food, Babies, Dogs, And Themselves

Google Photos' decoupling from Google+ dates back to May, which means five months have now passed since. In this time, Google Photos has received several updates and gained essential features like Chromecast support and albums for adding and reordering images.

Photos now counts 100 Million active monthly users, but how that number is tallied I couldn't tell you. Does a single search or view count, or did they require uploads for users to be marked as active? I'm not sure. 15 Million animations and collages have been created, either manually or through Assistant.
