With Google I/O 2021 more than a week away, Google is making several changes to many of its existing set of applications and even releasing new apps such as the Gboard for the Wear OS.
However, after listening to user feedback and hearing numerous comments, Google is reverting the changes made to the “Sharing” tab on Google Photos last June. It is currently located under the Hamburger menu, with Google Photos having only three options under the menu. The latest update brings back the Sharing tab to the bottom of the screen. The Library tab will still remain at the bottom right. According to Google, they are
“bringing your shared photos back to the home screen, allowing you to easily view and manage shared content”
In other changes, the Print Store, which was available in the Library Tab, can now be found where the Sharing Tab was previously. Google says they are making these changes so you can focus on your albums, archives, and folders.
We are always looking for ways to improve the Google Photos experience by listening to user feedback and comments. Today, we are starting to roll out UI changes to make it easier to find your shared memories and the print store.
Google Photos update is currently rolling out to Android devices, whereas iOS devices might take a while before getting the treatment.
