You could choose to back them up on Google Drive, or you could choose to back them up on Google+, but given that Google+ is a social network of sorts, we’re sure that there are some users who would rather not have people in their circles see their photos by accident.


That being said a report from Bloomberg has revealed that Google is set to launch a new photo sharing and storage service in the very near future, which we can only assume will be officially announced at Google I/O which kicks off next week. This service is said to be a standalone service just for photos, unlike Google Drive which can store a variety of different files, and Google+ which doubles up as a social network.

The service will also allow users to share their photos directly with Facebook and Twitter, but apart from that not much else about the service, such as its features, storage, or pricing for additional storage was revealed. This isn’t the first time that there has been speculation that Google could be launching such a service.

In 2014 Bloomberg had a report in which they speculated that Google was already looking into separating its photo service from Google+, which a statement from Google which reads, “Over here in our darkroom, we’re always developing new ways for people to snap, share and say cheese.” In any case do check back with us next week for the details.
