Google Drive and Google Photos will soon de-sync photos and videos hosted between the two.
Google suggested that “automatic sync” between the two services was just “confusing” for users, so they’ve decided to “simplify” the experience.
Accidental deletions and appearances of counting data twice will soon be out the door – sort of.
It’s going to be carnage!
In July of 2019, Google will sort-of separate Google Photos and Google Drive.
Right now they share hosting of the media you upload to Google Photos.
