Inside the Android version of the Google Photos app, a chunk of users have noticed a new option that makes it easier to access your cloud-centric library after taking a photo. As DroidLife explains, by swiping to the Assistant tab some people now have the option to enable a "Jump from Camera to Google Photos" shortcut. Agree to the change and you'll notice a tiny circle in your camera app whenever you fire off a new shot. So instead of launching the Gallery, or whatever app equivalent your Android phone ships with, you can tap this and jump directly into Photos instead.

It's a neat trick, although we wish Google had a better way to integrate the two apps -- this seems like a welcome, but slightly messy workaround.
