google_photosA rumor from last week suggested that Google could be thinking of spinning off its photos services from Google+ into a standalone service. This service would allow users to backup photos onto it as well as the ability to manage your photos and search through it by name, type, and so on.

Now thanks to the folks at Android Police, it seems that they have managed to get their hands on what appears to be the leaked screenshots of the upcoming app that would be launched as part of the new service, and based on what we see it certainly looks like it could be a very useful feature for users with a lot of photos to manage.

The app will also offer up multiple views that the photos can be viewed from, along with gesture support in which users can pinch or swipe their way through their photos.

Google’s Auto Awesome feature has also been replaced with an “Assistant” feature that basically gives users more control over how their “stories” and animations are created. That being said as this isn’t an official announcement, it should be taken with a grain of salt for now, but Google is expected to share additional details about its new service at WWDC 2015 this week so check back with us then for the updates.
