Photos app to give users more creative control

According to sources, the interface should also be more intuitive across the entire range, with more options for viewing your photos, a better editing interface, privacy-minded sharing and pinch-to-zoom gestures for opening pictures.

The android Photos app.

If you're wondering what will happen when Android'sPhotos app finally leaves Google+ behind to become a stand alone app.

You should now have a pretty good idea. According to AndroidPolice, who has peeked at a leaked copy of a reworked Photos app, and it's clear that Google is using the service split as an opportunity to shake things up.

The highlight may be Assistant, an effective substitute for Auto Awesome that offeres you more creative power, you can produce more content yourself (such as Stories) instead of waiting for it to come up.

According to sources, the interface should also be more intuitive across the entire range, with more options for viewing your photos, a better editing interface, privacy-minded sharing and pinch-to-zoom gestures for opening pictures.

There's an off chance these features could change or disappear before they're made official, but it won't be at all surprising if this Photos redesign on the Google I/O stage this week.

So be sure to watch out for that.
