Google plans to transition away from its Google+ service for photos. Starting August 1st, 2015 Google+ Photos will disappear, to be replaced by Google Photos.
“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,” Google said.
Google Photos was launched this passed May, which allows users to store unlimited high quality photos and videos for free and organizing them.
“Don’t worry, all your photos and videos will still be saved and available after you switch to the new, stand-alone Google Photos app. With the new app you’ll still be able to backup, edit, and share your photos and videos, with unlimited storage, automatic organization, and more,” Google added.
