This Google Photos sync integration appears to be end in the not too distant future, nevertheless, according to the newest edition of this Google Drive program.

About APK Insight: During this’APK Insight’ article, we have decompiled the most recent edition of a program that Google uploaded into the Play Store.

These days, we have our very first concrete sign of if Google Drive and Google Photos will probably stop to sync, located in the most recent edition of Google Drive, 2.19.192. Google has included two strings that describe the”Google Photos” folder at Google Drive will no longer be in sync using the Google Photos program.

Starting in July, your Google Photos library will no longer sync to Google Drive. All your files are safe in Google Photos.
Your Google Photos folder is no longer syncing with Google Photos. Your photos are all safe in Google Photos.

By doing this, it appears Google will only switch off the connection between Google Photos and Google Drive after this season. In both strings, Google tries to assuage any fears of lost photographs, highlighting that photographs are”secure in Google Photos.” Most importantly, the”Google Photos” folder may also still exist on your Google Drive, but may no longer sync, beginning in July.

The strings are not visible yet from the Google Drive program, which means a few of these details are still possibly subject to change, such as the July date recorded.
