"As always, you are also able to choose whether to back up photos and videos while connected to cellular data - if you turn both of those toggles to Off, then backups will only happen over Wi-Fi," isn't there a Wi-Fi option to only upload on non-cellular networks?
Alma, 23 Jun 2017Can you stop google photos altogether. I would like to save all my photos to a hard drive and... moreTrue. This new development gives another reason to avoid automatic cloud syncing and go for manual control over your files.
I don't get why they are doing away with such a useful feature. Makes no sense at all.
I still have the only when charging option. Build number 220.127.116.11033354
Right, if we are to complaining will set a Facebook account or if someone can do it qwuicker I.e. I am 72 so it will take time but I dont think we should let vgoogle get awaywith it.
We came to Spain 7 years ago and our lives are all on Picasa. B****D's
There is always something that takes your time up whether you are restored like us or at work
Can you stop google photos altogether. I would like to save all my photos to a hard drive and edit them offline. Then I could control what is happening. HOW DO I DO IT, PLEASE
They also removed the overlay icon in the Photos app which showed which photos are backed up in the cloud. Hard to understand why is Google removing useful features.
YES absolutely! Hopefully a lot of users will complain, me first. To hopefully they (Google) will bring the lost feature back.
what is this, desperate to get people's photos before we have a chance to delete one?
I too want this feature back as when im often places where battery gets eaten by phone searching for signel. I dont need a extra drain on battery life. A feature to plan back up time would help be prepared. Not sure complaining here is answer though. Need to aim it at Google.
Why remove something like that? this feature should also be in google play store, otherwise you need to manually start downloading updates when you are going to charge, now photos sync too, seems google is going backwards here.
I want the "backup only when charging" feature back. Trying to get the most out of my battery everyday is challenging enough, and only gets more difficult by removing this option. Please restore this feature, Google.
Wow, stupid move, Google. Who's the moron who made this decision? Definitely won't be updating the app.
