Google Now Includes Google+ Photos In Drive.

We’re all patiently waiting to figure out what exactly Google is going to do with its frail social network, Google+, and today’s news isn’t looking to good for it.Google has begun showing photos uploaded via Google+ in Google Drive, where they can be managed via a new Google Photos tab, or stored in folders alongside other kinds of files easily.

The inclusion of Photos and Videos in Drive is one sign that Google is moving to part out the Google+ social network into its key components, and is good news for mobile photographers. Its intended to make it easier for you to use photos in your documents, but frankly, there’s probably more to the announcement happening behind the scenes. Google+ has one of the best automatic Photos tools in the business, thanks to its automatic enhancements of color balance and exposure, as well as other tweaks and organizational tools. The move to include your Google+ library in Drive likely helps make it much more accessible and useful for those who are already using Google+ as a backup destination for pics snapped on their mobile device. Putting the Photos menu in Drive and populating it with Google+ images and videos means you won’t have to change your practices to take advantage of the switch, and the feature should already be available on Android, iOS and the web.

Once it kicks in you’ll be able to snap photos and have them show up in Drive without any extra effort – the same way it works for Google+ currently. In regards to the change, Google explains that “your experience across Google should be seamless and consistent.” The announcement stops short of saying this is part of a broader effort by Google’s Bradley Horowitz to break out Google+ Photos and Google+ Streams. The company is planning a renewed focus on photos (with videos coming along for the ride), with the goal of separating Google+ Photos into its own product.
