Google has finally enabled an important Google Photos feature that the Android app has been missing for years. However, the fix still needs work.
Until recently, Android users, and only Android users, have jumped through hoops to delete a photo when viewing it from within a Google Photos album. Now, according to a report Android PoliceGoogle has released an update that partially fixes the problem
To solve this problem, Google has given Android users a new ‘Move to Trash’ option that is accessible from the ‘Three Dot’ menu at the top right when viewing a photo. Interestingly, although this option has been available for years in the web versions of iOS and Google Photos, Android users have so far been left out.
Prior to this update, Android users will have to search for the main feed for each image they want to delete and instead move them to Trash.
Unfortunately, the fix is currently limited to personal albums, so if you want to delete a photo from a shared album, you still have to do it the old-fashioned way. There are no such restrictions for iOS and web users.
Fortunately, Google will fix the second part of this problem in a future update.
