Google separates wheat from the chaff, err...brings Google+ Photos to Drive

Google today announced the first step of its plan to repurpose Google+. The company has brought photos and videos stored in Google+ Photos over to Google Drive.

Google says your content is available “immediately” if it’s new, and your entire library should show up “in a few weeks.” A new Photos menu in Google Drive on Android, iOS, and the web lets you manage your photos and videos alongside all your other files.

And thus beginith the amputation of Google+ Photos from Google+ (arguably the best part of Google+).
