Google would be shutting down Google+ Photos to make way for its new standalone Google Photos app that went live just a few months ago in late May.

The search-giant will begin shutting down the older photos service starting August 1, first on Android, with the web and iOS options following soon after.
The new stand-alone Google Photos app, unlike Google+ Photos, will not require you to be signed up to the Google+ social network, meaning all users on Android, web and iOS will be able to use the app.
Google Photos is also a little more powerful than its Google+ counterpart, giving users unlimited storage of 16MP photos and 1080p videos for free, editing options and the ability to share photos or videos via links, rather than through emails.
