Google Takes the + Out of Google+ Photos.

For a time, Google touted the service as a key element in Google+, with a range of editing tools and image enhancement technologies rolled out over the years. The new app, announced in May alongside various other improvements to Google’s mobile ecosystem, has a fresh new design and self-organizing archives, as well as unlimited storage space.

This was followed up a couple of months later when Google announced the Google Photos standalone app which basically acts as a photo hosting service which can backup the photos stored on your phone for free (assuming your photos are below the 16MP variety). According to a recent post by the official Google+ account, Google+ Photos will be shut down come 1st of August as Google makes the official transition to Google Photos. According to Google, the shutdown will affect Android users first, before it eventually ceases working for desktop and iOS users as well. “In an effort to ensure everyone has the best photos experience we can deliver, on August 1st we’ll start to shut down Google+ Photos — initially on Android, and soon thereafter on the Web and iOS.” It should be noted that your photos have already been migrated to the new Google Photos service. For most, the existence of the standalone Google Photos makes Google+ Photos redundant, and perhaps a bit confusing (Example A: this post.) Alas, there are a few tricks from Google+ Photos that haven’t made it into the non-plus Google Photos app yet — things like pushing pictures to Chromecast, or support for PhotoSphere hosting. Though it’s become a useful tool for finding like-minded communities, it doesn’t appear that’s viable enough to keep the social network standing on its own.

We have previously covered everything Google Photos has to offer to everyone, and is really a great option, regardless of the platform, to backup everything up.
