Google Photos is a super useful app that comes as a built-in app on Android phones. You can use it to backup your photos and videos, but you can also edit the images, create albums, and more. When you upload the photos to the app, you can delete them from your device to free up some space. You can always access all your photos just by opening the app. If you want, you can get rid of the photos that are stored in the app. Perhaps you have some duplicates, or you don’t like some. When you delete them, the photos will be placed in the bin. But, what to do if you changed your mind? How to restore images from the bin in Google Photos on Android? Keep reading.

Once the photos are deleted and placed in the bin, they will remain there for some period of time – 60 days to be exact. After that, the items in the bin will be automatically removed and you won’t be able to restore them. Also, if you empty the bin yourself, you can’t restore the photos.
