Time To Separate Photos From Google+: Google’s New Web Photo Service Is Coming
A news report suggests that Google is in the last stages of developing a standalone version of Google Photos.
According to the report, published in Bloomberg, the American tech company has finalized all the necessary preparations to offer photo services separately from the whole Google+. The publication further tips that the Google’s upcoming I/O conference is likely to host the unveiling ceremony of the predicted significant service.
Currently Google offers photo-backup and sharing services as part of “Google+ Photos.” This bucket of photo editing and maintaining tools is transported with all Google Play Android devices. With the service, users are able to upload unlimited images of width up to 2048 pixels. The users can then get most of the photo editing work done by the application itself.
Part of the same offer is the option for backing up images on Google cloud storage.
Now when a revamped version of the service will be introduced by Google, image sharing options, i.e., for posting pictures to social media sites directly, will also be added.
Earlier this year, Google acquired Odysee, a photo-backup and sharing service. The Internet giant unexpectedly closed the service then for unknown reasons. Now after the recent revelation about Google’s plans, it is easy to assume that the company was probably planning for the photos service in question.
Presumably, Google will integrate Odysee’s offline and private sharing features in its upcoming standalone photo service.
