Google+ Photos Shutting Down on August 1
It is official; Google has announced that Google+ Photos will be shutting down on 1st of August.
The company’s older cloud photo storage service is going down for good this time, as expected. The previous Google+ Photos will be replaced with the new Google Photos which has some awesome features in store for you.
The Google Photos was launched back in May and it was quite obvious that is it meant as a replacement for Google+ Photos.
This isn’t the first time that Google is killing an older service for a newer one. Picasa Web Albums were discontinued when Google wanted to support Google+ Photos, and now the same is happening with the poor thing itself. Although those who want the legacy photo storage solution still have the access to the service.
First up for the shutdown are the smartphones, the killing will begin from Android apps and then the iOS and finally the web. But don’t worry if you haven’t backed up your images or updated to the new service already. All your photos present in Google+ Photos will be automatically transferred to Google Photos.
The shut down shouldn’t disappoint users as the Google Photos service is much more interesting than the previous version. It introduces more functions than Google+, it uploads an awfully huge amount high quality pictures and videos with the feature of automatic organization. However, the photos and videos can only be organized with date and location.
The Google Photos is coming out with almost the same features with an additional few to enhance its capabilities and satisfy consumers. The Google Photos is available for Android, iOS and Web.
