Google set to terminate Photos service out of Google+

By | August 4, 2014


According to different sources, Google might possibly going to terminate its Photos service out of Google+, making it stand more independently from its social network, even going as far as to let non-Google+ users be a part of the fun. The service, which is currently called Google+ Photos, could possibly be used to take on apps like Instagram or Flickr. Still there isn’t any certain news what next step the Google is going to take after terminating this.

From the sources of earlier Google report, 1.5 billion photos are uploaded to Google+ every week, many of which receive the Auto Awesome treatment thanks to Google’s hard-working servers. Then, once automatically edited, they are made shareable with the click/tap both on the web and even through the Photos app on Android. The Photos app, Auto Awesome features, and editing tools included are some of the best available to mobile devices.

The report is not all that clear, but it sounds like Google will likely re-brand the app, make little mention of G+ during the sign-in process, and see how it can compete with established photo sharing/social apps such as Instagram, snapchat and more.

Simply reflecting here, however could this conceivable separation be an alternate sign that Google is looking to break down Google+? We know the organization hasn’t surrendered hope totally, yet as we saw at Google I/O, there was scarcely any notice of the social media at all. If you were to free yourself of a network, taking out its key peculiarity would without a doubt be a step you would take.
