Google+ Photos can now appear in your Google Drive

You’ve long been able to make images you store in Google Drive show up in Google+ Photos, but what about the other way around? Why can’t you automatically back up photos from your phone, then have them synced down to your Mac or PC via Drive? Well, now you can:

To get started, just look for the new Photos menu in Drive for Android, iOS and the web. From there you’ll be able to manage your photos and videos alongside other types of files. For example, you can now add pictures of wedding venues and cakes to the same Drive folder as your guest list and budget.

Google+ Photos will of course keep helping you store, edit and share your pics. But if you want to organize all your files, all in one place, Drive is here to help. You’ll start seeing your photos in Drive today—immediately if they’re new, and a few weeks for your entire library—so give it a try, and let us know what you think.

  1. A good step. Here’s to hoping Google can nail the backup, archive AND publish feature set.

    I’ve got a lengthy set of suggestions for you on this, if you email me.
