basically Google photos, but better because it's encrypted.
As in, a mobile app for backing up and organizing phone photos.
Maybe we could pay a monthly fee for access to Photos, Drive, and VPN service. I'd much rather support an independent company than Google
This is a key factor in my and my families adoption of Proton Drive. We're a mixed userbase of Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android and the main reason to have lots of storage is to securely and privately backup our memories.
The most important items for us would be to have mobile apps that take care of upload automatically (ala Google photos or iCloud photos) and a nice way to view photos, ideally via native apps. Live photos support is also a must.

Only if people allow to be tagged!!! Proton - privacy by default, fhs.

Automatically upload all photos and videos captured on my phone to a "Photos" and "Videos" folder in my Proton Drive. When I view the folder, show thumbnails. The fancy scrollbar in Google Photos that allows me to slide through the months would be nice extra touch.

This is one of the primary blockers I must keep using Google Workspace. I would love to consider a migration to Proton, but this is a missing service that some family members need.
It should have an auto-sync process so new photos are updated automatically.
Geolocation and face recognition can be useful too, so I can tag people or re-visit some locations.
We use iOS devices.
Ive already downloaded all my Google photos & uploaded to Proton Drive.
Absolutely! I have been thinking this for awhile now. Glad I'm not the only one. As soon as this comes out I can cut all ties with google.

@ Raymond Engle - 100% agree. ente.io is a slick little app
Raymond Engle commented
A simple way to accomplish this is to aquire ente.io in the same way they aquired simplelogin.
Echoing the other comments here: Syncing photos on iOS and Android is what will allow us to move away from Google Workspace in a heartbeat.

Proton Photo is the app you need to develop as soon as possible, it's the number one need of families. I currently use a local Synology NAS because I don't trust the cloud. But if you release Proton App Sync on the Synology Photo model (Sync, Album, FaceID auto arrange, etc...), I would totally switch to the Proton Family plan.
Regarding Proton Family, you should think about a plan for a small family of 3 or a plan with a flexible number of people, because the current family plan is too expensive for some families.

I'd be glad if at least I can start auto-sync'ing pictures and docs from Android/iOS
I am waiting this feature to migrate all my family members to proton: i need an user experience "Google-like" to convince them
A photos app with automatic uploads is keeping me from fully ditching the Google services. Especially if the Proton photos app will have a feature similar to "remember this day 2 years ago".

Currently using ente.io. I think it's one of the best alternative for Google photos. But if proton make a photos app then I will definitely use that
This is currently the feature that keeps me from migrating over from my Google Workspace
Please also consider collaborative family sharing. I would like to have the ability to share a "family album" with my wife, my children and everybody can collaborate (add, delete) photos there. Just as the "shared iCloud Photo library" in iOS 16.
One of the biggest features I hope to see added very soon.
Please at least add HEIC support for iPhone photos, thanks!
Yet with a decent syncing feature and integration with mobile gallery app
Same for me: this is pretty mandatory functionality to migrate from our current cloud services (OneDrive, Nextcloud self hosted). The lack of this kind of functionality is holding me back to switch to Proton with both my family users, as well as my businesses.
