    Default What happened to the "Photos" app?

    I got a new phone and the Photos app isn't on it. I can access all of my photos on Google+ but it's much more convenient to access them directly from the Photos app. On my old phone (galaxy 3) the app is still there with all of my photos. Can I get it on my new phone (galaxy mega)? Please help. Thanks

    That's strange as it should be in there. Dumb question, but can you access Photos through the Gallery app?

    Yes. But the thing is that I erased all of the Photos on my sd card and unless I take a new pic I can only see pics in Google+. I connected my galaxy 3 to my mobile hotspot and the Photos app is still there even after the system update I did on it yesterday... with all of my photos.

    I'm sorry for not being clear...I was thinking that maybe the Photos app was merged with the Gallery app.

    If you have Google+, it should be there. Alternatively, if you're using a launcher like Nova or Apex, maybe you can create a shortcut that takes you directly to Photos?

    Exactly, Photos is part of Google+. If you have disabled or removed Google+, then you also disabled/removed Photos.
