Google announced today that its legacy Google+ Photos app will soon go the way of Picasa (that is, obscurity) in favor of the company's newer Google Photos app which launched in May. According to a post on Google+, Google+ Photos will begin shutting down -- first on Android, then on the web and iOS -- beginning August 1st. Users can easily port their existing photos to the new service using the download link from their Google+ Photos page. Even if you don't immediately switch to the new, standalone app, Google+ Photos will continue to store your photo and video content at photos.google.com until you are ready to. Users also have the option to export that data using Google Takeout.
