Google to bring important changes to automatic sync between Google Photos & Drive. The company is ending the connection between these services and they will stop working together in July.
Google to Bring Changes Photos & Drive Next Month
We can’t say that it is 100% Google’s decision to bring the change in these services as the company has announced that its decision is based on user’s feedback received. Therefore, we can say that it is a mutual decision of users and the company.
So next month, users won’t be able to see new photos and videos from Drive automatically in Photos. At the same time, new photos and videos in Photos will not be visible in Drive as it will not be added to the photos folder. Moreover, if you delete photos and videos in Drive, it will no longer be removed from Photos.
Good news for those users who have a “Google Photos” folder in Drive, that will no longer update automatically while it will remain on Drive.
Google announced that in photos, it is introducing a new “Upload from Drive” feature. That will allow users to manually choose photos and videos from Drive to import into photos but these items will not be connected between these services.
