I'm using a mobile device which is full of videos, photos and documents. So, the mobile device keeps on hanging. Those stuffs are important for me and don't want to lose them. I want to save them somewhere out of my phone. I don't have any other devices to save them in. So, I want to save them online storage which I'm unaware about. can I save videos, photos and documents in gmail draft or what step Is better to follow to upload my files there ?

one application named "Drive" is automatically is in my mobile device, (Which I didn't download) and It shows it has 15 GB. I doubt whether it is showing my phone storage. I don't know the matter is either.

I would like to keep them private, I don't like my stuffs being accessed by others.


You can download the Google Photos app on your phone and create an account on photos.google.com and then configure your phone to automatically upload photos and videos to this account.

  • I'm talking about 'Gmail Account' and Drive. – yubraj Dec 13 '16 at 10:08
  • what is total storage of gmail account all together? – yubraj Dec 13 '16 at 10:23
  • Sorry about this, but when I answered your query, your question didnt include the "Drive" thing and just after I replied with the answer you had edited your answer. But trust me, atleast for your photos and videos, google photos is a very reliable option and just a one time setting you need to do, after that it will automatically upload your newly captured photos and videos. – Trupti Ranpise Dec 13 '16 at 10:54
  • Google drive is limited to 15 GB while google photos give you unlimited free storage. – Trupti Ranpise Dec 13 '16 at 10:59
  • No problem for that. Google photos is also a service of gmail account or it's just an application? Next, It only saves photos and videos, not documents. right ? – yubraj Dec 13 '16 at 12:35

You can save them on "Google Drive" as well as "OneDrive" or other third parties storage.They will save your file securely..you can handle them by your email..
