Nearly four months after its public launch, Everalbum has announced that the photo-sharing and storage service now has an Android version of its app. Although the company hasn’t disclosed specific user metrics yet, it did reveal that its fastest-growing markets are outside the United States, specifically India, Taiwan, Brazil, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
An app that could be described as Google Photos meets Storehouse meets Cluster, Everalbum stores photos from not only your device’s camera roll, but also from Instagram, Dropbox, Facebook, and Google. It can also create collaborative albums in which you and your friends are able to post shared photos. Until today, it had only been available for iPhone users.
Perhaps most notably, Everalbum’s entry into the Android market puts it more directly in competition with Google Photos. After all, Everalbum allows you to pull in photos from Google’s app. The move also opens the app to millions more users around the world, where the Android operating system continues to be more widely adopted than iOS. Not that Everalbum needs help reaching markets outside the United States — it says that billions of the photos stored in the 120 million albums created thus far are from users outside the country.
From a feature standpoint, there’s no significant difference between the Android and iOS versions. Everalbum’s many competitors include Dropbox (although its Carousel app has been shuttered), Flickr, and Microsoft OneDrive.
The company has also officially revealed that it has received an undisclosed investment from Khosla Ventures’ Keith Rabois, Aydin Senkut of Felicis Ventures, Matt Cheng of Cherubic Ventures, China’s live social video platform Tian Je Interactive, and others.
