Google recently published a new app Gallery Go by Google Photos. The app is another Photos app. There is already one app Google Photos out there, then why Google has released the new app? With growing internet and fast connections, it has become easier to manage photos saved online, but the fast connection is not available everywhere. The article is all about the difference between Google Photos and Gallery Go by Google Photos. We will compare both the apps and see what’s the difference, what features are missing in Gallery Go, and finally, which one should you use. The article is the final place for Google Photos vs Gallery Go by Google Photos.
Google Photos vs Gallery Go by Google Photos
The step by step compassion follows in the below categories. You can click if you are only interested in a specific part of the comparison.
- What features are the same?
- Missing features in Gallery Go.
- Missing features in Google Photos.
- Which one is for me?
- In conclusion.
1. Interface differences
Everyone knows about Google Photos. The main interface is the first viewable part of the app, and we have four options down the below. On Gallery Go by Google Photos, there are only two options. The assistant which is my favourite feature as it informs me about past events, memories, suggests to free up memory by deleting the unnecessary media, and creates animations, colleges etc. is missing. The second feature which is missing in Gallery Go by Google Photos is sharing. You can still share the media, but the specific place where you can see and manage all the shared items is missing. When you open Gallery Go by Google Photos, you find the photos sorted in different albums including selfie, nature, people etc. The app is simple to use.

What features are available in both
What is missing in Gallery Go
As we have already mentioned that the assistant and sharing tab is missing. With those two, you can’t find location settings, search option, back up and sync options, Google Lens and PhotoScan support, and account management options. With those features missing, the app does not require location, telephone, and contacts permissions, making it easier to use and lightweight.
What features are missing in Google Photos
The app is the parent doesn’t mean that it’s perfect. There is one feature which is missing, but soon Google will implement that in Google Photos. The function is called the dark mode. Gallery Go comes with a dark mode which looks great at all the times. The photo viewing window and the sharing media feature are better in Gallery Go. Tapping on the Share button pops up the three most frequently used apps with the Other button which pops up the basic sharing window.

Both apps are equipped with an editor. While Google Photos comes with a fully-featured editor, Gallery Go by Google Photos comes with a one-touch auto-enhance option. On Google Photos, you have options including auto-enhance, effects, brightness, contrast, crop, rotate, and advanced tools which we see on the editor screen. Gallery Go, on the other hand, comes with an option to auto-enhance the photo on the media view screen. You can also go to the editor to add effects, rotate and crop the photo and save a copy of it.
Moving to the video editing part of Google Photos vs Gallery Go by Google Photos, the editor in Google Photos has options to trim, rotate, and stabilise the video, while in Gallery GO, you have the only option to trim the video.
Storage impacts on the comparison as there is a vast difference. Google Photos take 89.03 MB of storage while Gallery Go occupies 21.97 MB. That means we can install four Gallery Go apps on the place of Google Photos. Also, fewer features and less storage implies the app will run faster.
Which one is for you?
Go with Gallery Go if you are under one or more options.
- If you have an old device with an old OS and less than 1 GB RAM.
- If Google Photos is slow.
- Gallery Go is for you if your phone has less than 32GB of storage.
- If you don’t have access to the internet all the time of the internet is expensive.
- If you don’t use Google Drive.
Well if you don’t fall into one of above, then you should continue using Google Photos.

With over 1 billion monthly active users, Instagram is one of the fastest grossing social media platforms. Despite being one of the popular, it does not offer many tools to manage your account. It is difficult to check status, follow and unfollow, see who follows you and who doesn’t, edit great photos, etc., especially if you have many followers.

The article covers the Showbox app review and features. Millions of users (over 60 according to their website) enjoy free movies and TV shows on services like Showbox. It’s an online media and video streaming service available for free. You can expect the latest movies uploaded within days; even the movie is still in the cinema. The review is all about the Showbox app with every little detail.
What is Showbox
Showbox or Show Box is a streaming service. It allows you to watch movies and TV shows online for free of charge. You don’t need to create an account. Showbox has over 60 million active users across all platforms.
Showbox app platforms
The app is not just available on Android. It is available on PC, Mac, and iPhone. It’s somewhat different from installing on iPhone as you need a separate app. On PC, the simple procedure of downloading the file is followed, but the file is a downloader which downloads the app itself. You can easily install the app on Mac. On Android, you can download from many websites. The app is available on multiple platforms, but I’ll be focusing on the Android version as that one is the most popular and the features on other platforms are almost the same.
Installing Showbox on iPhone
The Showbox app review also covers the installation guide for the iPhone. Installing Showbox on iPhone requires vShare. In that app, you’ll have to search for Moviebox. The name is different, but the app is the same. Once downloaded, you can enjoy free movies and TV shows.
Beside not being an official app, the app requires a few permissions.
- Showbox requires the location permission, which was the reason for me to add permissions to the Showbox app review. Why does it ask for the location? Well, to show you the ads related to your device location. The trick here is even you turn off the location; it can still estimate the tower-based location. So, as long as you open the app, and you are online, the app can access your location.
- The second one is for downloading the media to your device.
- I don’t know why it reads the phone’s identity and status, but my closest guess is it is also related to ads.
On Android, the app shows the latest movies’ news. You get to see celebrities review, chats, talks, interviews etc. The screen is called Trending. It comes with a button to see all the news with the left menu. Touching on See More option separates movies news and TV shows news.
You can sort the movies by rating and the added time. There are over 15 genres to choose from. Meanwhile, you can also select the releasing year of the movie to filter the movie screen. The options are available in the top-right menu.
The left menu
The evergreen left menu is part of the Showbox app. It comes with trending, movies, TV shows, news, trailers, favourites, downloads, new releases, and settings options. As I’ve already mentioned in the trending section, we get the news. In the movies section, we get the latest movies. In TV shows we get TV shows. The news section shows the same news which we see in the trending section. I don’t know why there is a separate section for news. By tapping on trailers, we can see the movies’ and shows’ trailers. In the favourites menu, we have the movies we like. In the new releases, we can see the newly released movies and TV shows, and lastly, in the settings menu, we can change the settings including when to download movies and change the quality of the video etc.

When you touch a movie or a TV show, another screen pops-up with the Watch Now and Download buttons. Things go a little bit messy here, and I’ll explain what, but let’s discover the screen first. On the top, we have the favourite option with share and select the server option. On the bottom, we have the movie name, releasing year, the genre with the movie rating. After that, we have the information about the movie with the watch trailer button. If you swipe down, you will be able to see the related movies. The download button shows you the servers to download the film. If the video is not available for direct download, then you have the option to download the movie via one of the torrent servers. Touching the watch now shows you the media player.
Check out: Popcorn Time review.
Unfortunately, the Showbox app does not come with its own media player. For the app to work properly, you will have to download Lime Player. The app shows that it is going to support MX Player and XPlayer very soon. To install Lime Player, you can click install button which will go to the Play Store link where you can download the line player. Lime Player is a separate app, and it’s not a part of the Showbox app review.
Problems with Showbox
The app has a couple of issues. The first one is you have to download a separate app on Android to watch movies. Without a video player, you can not watch videos, but you can still download the videos. Secondly, it shows ads which may not be suitable for all users. Although there is an option to disable the adult ads and the option comes enabled by default.
Is Showbox app legal?
It’s a big No! Why? Because of a few reasons.
- The first reson is the app is not available on official stores which means the app has unlimited access to our phone. Usually, when we download an app, Google Play and App Store protect us by scanning the app. We are not installing the app from stores, that means if anything happens including data hacking or a virus, no one is responsible.
- The second reason is, selling something without paying to the original creator is illegal. Why Netflix pays to the movie creators? Because that’s a legal thing to do.
The app is great and you get to see the new movies in good quality. If you still want to enjoy Showbox, at least use some sort of VPN to hide your identity. There are many free VPNs available to try. Check out the article free VPNs which can be helpful while watching on Showbox.
Here is the end of Showbox app review. There are a few services out there which allow you to watch free movies online, and Showbox is one of the easy to navigate apps. I hope that the review covered everything you wanted to know. Please share your thoughts in the comments below, and if I missed anything or any of the information is wrong, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
