Anyone who owns an Android smartphone certainly uses the Google Photos service to back up their photographs. Especially those who like to organize their photos in albums to find them more easily.
Until now, users of this service could not remove photos from these albums directly to the trash in the Android application. A strange limitation that was finally fixed by Google.
Google Photos now lets you move photos to the trash directly from albums
If any of your albums have a photo that you no longer care about, you can easily remove it straight to the trash. To do this, simply select the photo in question and select the “Move to trash” option.
The same can be done while browsing your albums. If you find a photo that you want to delete, you only have to click on the three dots in the upper right corner and select the option “Move to trash” at the end of the displayed menu.
It is important to emphasize that this functionality only available for private albums. Those that you have shared with a contact, it will be necessary to use the old method for their removal.
Until now, if you used the Google Photos Android app, you would first have to remove the photo from the album. Afterwards, he would have to find it in his library and only then could he move it to the trash.
This chain of processes is no longer necessary with the latest version of the Google Photos app for Android. Just select the photo you want to delete and move it directly to the trash.
This option already existed in the desktop version of the Google Photos service. Furthermore, its iOS application also offers the same possibility, however, for unknown reasons, it is only now implemented in the respective Android version.
Such imitation had been known to Google for at least three years. On the social network Twitter, the product director of Google Photos had already admitted the limitation and mentioned that this was something his team was working on.
We don’t know why Google took so long to correct this gap, but luckily it has already done so. From now on, it will be much simpler to remove unwanted photos from your albums.
