After deploying a material-subject navigation drawer last week, Google Photos for Android is configured to receive backup status indicators in the gallery view. The application also has support for Android Foldables before the release of Samsung Galaxy Fold next week.
The "News" section of the Google Play Store was updated recently (through Android Police) to take into account these two new additions.
We've launched a new gallery to help you see which of your photos and videos have not been backed up and proactively choose the elements you want to back up. In addition, we have made several improvements to make Google Photos compatible with folding devices.
The first feature seems to be already available in Google Photos for iOS, and adds a cropped cloud icon in the lower right corner of photos and videos that have not yet been uploaded. With this "new gallery view", users can "choose elements proactively to make backup copies".
At this time, the load indicator opens to view a small preview of the image being backed up, or view each photo individually to check the status of the load in the upper right corner.
Another update today presents "several improvements to make Google Photos compatible with collapsible devices." This occurs when the first Android Foldable will launch next week with the Galaxy Fold. After the Samsung device, the Huawei Mate X is expected, and there are likely to be more devices by 2019.
Google did not detail the support in Photos, but it probably involves the continuity of the screen and the multiple summary. The forms allow applications to pass automatically from one screen to another with respect to the new design and density, while laughter allows several applications to remain active.
Version 4.14 or Google Photos was widely extended last week, although the release notes could be referenced to a new update on Thursday, since the status indicators of the backup are not yet active.
