Will this change have any foreseeable impact to Google Glass’s automatic backup or sharing functions?
For those who do not know, Google Plus Photos has graduated to become its own standalone service, this was done at Google I/O. It was announced on Monday that the old Google Plus Photos will be “effectively shutdown” and all functions moved to Google Photos.
For anyone using Google Plus’s photos right now, the change has already happened on the web services (http://photos.google.com) and on the dedicated iOS and Android Applications. All of your photos have already been migrated to the new platform and you now enjoy the benefit of Free and Unlimited Storage for most photos under 16 megapixels. The service is great!
With this said, there are a lot of backend APIs that I am sure need to change and I have some fears that this may break the way +Google Glass may upload photos. We have not seen an update to Glass in over a year and I am sure that this was not taken into consideration when the last XE Update was released.
Goodbye Google+ Photos, hello +Google Photos! In May, we launched Google…
