Two months after it launched its new Google Photos service, Google is closing its predecessor Google+ Photos — that will start on August 1st, initially on Android, and soon thereafter on the Web and iOS. A prompt inside the Google+ Photos on Android is already suggesting the user to download the new Google Photos.
Google assures users that all their photos and videos will still be saved and available after they switch to the new, stand-alone Google Photos app. With the new app they will still be able to backup, edit, and share their photos and videos, with unlimited storage, automatic organization, and more.
If users haven’t updated the new Google Photos, Google+ Photos on Android will soon stop working, but their photos and videos will still remain safely stored and available. All images and video back up via the Google+ Photos will be available here and anyone can download the data by way of Google Takeout.
