What happened to Google’s plans to re-tool Android photo backup, moving away from Google+ and towards Google Drive, as we’ve been hearing rumored recently? Word was, this change was likely to take place last week, but the weekend arrived without any obvious motion in that direction? Well, the ETA may have been a little off, but today we finally see the news made official, as Google explains just how this shift will work.

Google Drive picks up a new Photos section, where you’ll now be able to find pics previously saved with Google+ Photos. But Google’s not getting rid of Google+ Photos, either – instead you’ll also be seeing your images saved to Drive.

The idea here sounds like it’s about convenience for heavy Drive users – Google+ fans can keep on using things like they used to, but if you’d rather see all your Google cloud data in once place, Drive is rising to meet that challenge.

Newly-snapped shots backed-up with Google will start appearing in Drive straight away, while the existing photos in your Google+ albums will see themselves turning up in Drive in the days and weeks to come.
