Google launched the stand-alone Photos app with unlimited storage in May. Now it has announced it will be phasing out its predecessorGoogle+ Photos. On August 1, the Google+ Photos Android app will stop working and soon afterwards the iOS and web versions will cease to be operational as well.

If you are a current Google+ Photos user you can access all your images and videos simply by installing the new app on your device. Files will also be accessible via http://photos.google.com on the web, or you can download your image archive via the Google Takeout service.
