Photos, Photos Everywhere

Google is releasing “Photos” for Android

We’ve been hearing for a very long time – virtually ever since Vic Gundotra left Google+, with more rumors springing up recently – that Photos would be splitting off from Google’s social/sign-in platform. We’ve heard vague rumblings, and even seen some baby steps toward this split, but now we have something a bit more substantial to go on – an exclusive early look at Google’s new Photos app, separate from Google+ and improved in a number of ways.

So we’re going to have Apple Photos and Google Photos? Fantastic.
