The users also have been seeing a prompt inside the Google+ Photos Android app suggesting them to download the new Google Photos service.

In addition, Google is offering a tool that will transition Google+ Photos users over to Google Photos which the users can find it in their Google+ account photos page. If the users fail to switch ahead of August 1, Google says their photos and videos will be available to them using Google Takeout.

Recently, Google introduced Google Photos that will allow users to backup and store unlimited high-quality photos and videos for free. Google Photos — a standalone product that gives users a home for all their photos and videos — is aimed at helping users to organise, share and save what they think is important, the company revealed in a blog post.

Google will maintain the original resolution up to 16MP for photos and 1080p high-definition for videos, and store compressed versions of the photos and videos in print-quality resolution.
