The best thing about Google+ is its photo organization and editing tools. Now, news is circulating that Photos And Google+ will be spun off into respective standalone product / app. According to an article on Bloomberg, Google is going to make the existing Google+ photo feature into an independent product / app. Google is planning to make this product / app accessible to users not having a Google account.
Google+’ future has been uncertain. Vic Gundotra, head of Google+, left in April. Google+ wasn’t mentioned at the Google I/O Developer Conference. Google+ photo tools and features are the best when comparing with Flickr and Facebook, and other competitors.
Google had a stand-alone photo service – Picasa. Recent updated and features in Google+ Photos are way more advantageous than Picasa. Google has put Picasa on the back-burner in 2013, and the respective URLs redirected to Google+. It now seems that the time is right to separate Picasa and Google+ Photos into a single piece.
