    I am sure i could always text a picture from Photos using the messenger app. Now the messenger app can only see photos saved to my phone, not those from Google photos. I know I can "share " pictures from photos app, but its just an extra step in the process. Why cant I text a Google Photo any longer? I have a Pixel XL

    Pictures backed up to the cloud and physically located on the phone are "saved to your phone" as far as Messenger is concerned. Photos backed up to the cloud but not physically located on the phone can still be seen by Photos, Gallery, etc., but can't be seen by Messenger. (And you probably updated to 8.1 since December - that may have something to do with it. There have been 4 updates since December, the first one from 8.0 to 8.1, and the last one only 3 days ago for the February patches.)

    just share them through the photos app as it will download them first.
