Google Photos Just Made the Case for Breaking Up Big Tech

Now that Google has lured more than 1 billion users to the service, making it an integral part of their digital lives (not to mention a huge hassle to switch , that original selling point is gone.

It’s that part emphasized that worries me - there’s no easy way to switch away from Google Photos. No APIs. No sync. Nothing.

I don’t care, or understand enough about the US anti-competitive laws. But what I do understand is that staying invested in only Google’s offering is becoming more risky with each passing year.
