Google+ Photos app to shut down on August 1st

rip-google-plus1

Google+ Photos, the photo sharing solution built into Google's social network Google+, is shutting down.

However: Google Photos (note the lack of +) — as in the excellent, unlimited free photo host that Google launched back in May — will live on.

The shutdown of Google+ Photos will start on August 1. According to Google, the Android version will go first; shortly thereafter, the web and iOS versions will go dark.

Google is offering a tool that'll transition Google+ Photos users over to Google Photos; you can find it on your Google+ account photos page. Even if you miss the deadline, Google says your photos will still be available by way of Google Takeout.
