The service will be first taken back from Android before it shuts down from the Web and iOS. The search engine explained that the move has been taken to ensure that, “everyone has the best photos experience we can deliver.”

Google has also encouraged the users who are still using Google +Photos to make the switch. Users who have still not made the switch will receive an intimation from Google + Photos on Android with a link to download the new Photos app. Google has also assured that the photos and videos will still be saved and available after the users switch to the new one.
The search engine said, “With the new app you’ll still be able to back up, edit, and share your photos and videos, with unlimited storage, automatic organization, and more.” If the update is not done then the Photos, Google + on Android will stop working but the pictures and videos will remain safe.
