Frequently asked questions

Can I try the Google Photos Library API without joining the partner program?

Yes, you can integrate with the Library API without joining the partner program. However, if your app is likely to exceed the general availability quota limit, or if you require a commercial license to use the Library API, express interest in the Google Photos partner program.

Where can I find the integration guidelines and best practices?

As you integrate with the Library API, you should keep the Acceptable use policy, Technical best practices, and UX guidelines in mind.

My submission was not accepted into the partner program. Can I re-apply?

If you applied more than 6 months ago, please re-apply with the new information. On the other hand, if you applied within the last 6 months, reply to the email we sent you regarding your submission, with some information about what has changed in your use case or quota requirements.

Can I use Google Photos logos in my marketing efforts?

As part of the partner program, you will have access to some of the Google Photos brand assets, including a "Works with Google Photos" badge that you can use in your marketing efforts.
