Google Photos update fixes one of its most annoying quirks for years

What you need to know

  • Google Photos has picked up a pair of updates, both on Android and the web.
  • You can now delete a photo directly from within an album on Android.
  • A new date overlay has been added to the desktop version.

While Google Photos has been a handy service for managing tons of photos and videos, it does have some annoying quirks, such as the lack of a straightforward way to delete a file from within an album. A new update now finally addresses that anomaly.
