Good looking out, Google.

If you use a phone that utilizes Android Go, a lightweight operating system alternative for lower-end smartphones, Google is releasing a new app to help carry the load when it comes to your pictures.

The new Gallery Go app is a lightweight version of the popular Google Photos app, but is only 10MB in size and allows offline image labeling, while still keeping some of the features of the full Photos app.

More about the Gallery Go app from Google

With Gallery Go, machine learning is still used to organize your images in easy-to-understand groups and allows image editing. With the app, you can still take advantage of tools like Auto Enhance to correct image colors, as well as other editing tools and filters.

You can also take your pictures from the app and transfer them to a microSD card if you want to keep your phone free of clutter.

Some of the labeling and compiling is still on the way, with Google saying that some features will not be included at launch, but rolling out to users worldwide at a later date.

The app is available for download now. Users must have Android 8.1 or above.

What do you think? Do you use a phone that has Android Go installed? Plan on downloading this app? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
