Google has been slowly parting services out of Google+, with the Photos app one of the larger ones requested by users. According to a report from Bloomberg, Google will announce that the app will become standalone at Google I/O next week.
While the service is still tied to your Google account, according to Bloomberg, the need for a Google+ account will no longer be required. The report is fairly bare-bones, with Google, as usual, refusing to comment on speculation and rumours but it goes along with rumours that have been circulating Google+ Photos for a while.
Google I/O kicks off on May 28th at 9am for a two-and-a-half hour Keynote address, where we’re sure to see all of these details announced – or clarified.
