About Google Photos API quota limits

The Google Photos API has a limitation of 10.000 calls per day for all users.

Due to high demand of my Photo Map for Google Photos App, I’m forced to limit the queries to Favorites only 20k entries, otherwise all users will get an error message that says that the limit is reached.

I’m in contact with Google to find a solution.

Location where queries are counted:

  • One per 100 photos reloaded on app startup
  • One for each photo displayed on the map after the items was loaded more than 60 minutes ago
  • One for each photo displayed in the full screen view after the items was loaded more than 60 minutes ago
