While some users may finally appreciate closer integration between Allo and Duo, others are desperate for the searcher’s decision to remove the backup option when the device is charging.
The functionality has disappeared from the latest versions of Google Photos for Android and iOS; and has also been removed from the service’s Help Center – which rules out the possibility of a bug in recent updates.
Google Photos allowed, through the settings, to automate the process of uploading photos and videos only when the device was connected to an external power source.
According to Google, the feature was provided with the idea of ”helping to extend the battery life of the device”.
So far the company has not commented on the matter.
