Google Photos recently got a brand new icon for backup status and material Design-themed navigation drawer. This update makes it easier to know if the images and videos have been backed up right from the gallery. The feature has been available for iOS for a while and just now added to Android. A major update in this version is the support for foldable phones.

Updates for Google Photos

“We’ve launched a new gallery view to help you see which of your photos and videos have not yet been backed up and proactively choose items to backup. Additionally, we’ve introduced several improvements to make Google Photos compatible with foldable devices,” as written in the ‘What’s new’ section in the app listing page. The app will now feature screen continuity and multi-resume upon re-opening the app.

Google adding foldable screens support for its Photos application can be taken as another indicator that Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is on its way and there’s no delay in the release date. The firm last week faced a lot of criticism as some preview units that were given to some reviewers stopped working due to faulty screens and no clear instructions about the protective film on the retail box. The firm has even delayed the release date of Galaxy Fold in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

As for the new photos backup icon, Android users will now see a slashed cloud icon on the bottom right corner of each image or video if they have not been backed up yet. This also means that users can ‘proactively chose’ which files to be backed up.

For now, Android users have to expand the indicator from the top to see the status of backup and small thumbnails of the images that are being backed up.
