Use Google Photos for Auto Backup In Windows 10

Google Photos is one of the best photo viewers in android due to many unique features like unlimited drive backup, Videomaker, Gif maker, Collage, I’m Feeling Lucky etc. It works natively on smartphones, but not many people know that this is available for Windows devices also, because you cannot find it on the windows store. Google Photos was available back then in 2018, but due to some kind of conflict between Google and windows, it was taken down from the windows store. Since then, Google Photos for Windows have never shown up in Windows store.
