The Android operating system offers some great functionality in terms of media consumption. The seamless integration of Google Photos and its tie-up with the camera app on your Android device makes it very easy to control how you save, edit, and even share your photos and videos.

In the past, there was no way to recover a photo that was deleted, making things very difficult in the long run. However, the new Google Photos app allows you to restore deleted photos from within the app within 60 days of deletion. This means you can recover pictured that you had deleted 2 months back.
