    Is anyone else not able to delete photos using the Google Photos app lately? This is the message card that appears on my screen when I try to do so.

    Is this on a Nexus/Pixel? IIRC Photos hasn't had SD Card access for deletion/modification for a while on non-Google device...

    Motorola Z Force Droid 7.1.1 Verizon. I can't say the last time I tried to delete photos. Maybe since getting 7.1.1. It's a change that occurred somewhat recently.

    Moved from the Android Apps forum to the General Help forum, since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    That's not a new issue -- as @SpookDroid mentioned, you need to use the stock Gallery app to delete photos on the SD card.

    The stock Gallery app is not available on my Motorola Z Force Droid 7.1.1 Verizon phone. But the ability to delete photos in Google Photos has only been a recent problem. I may try disabling the app and re-enabling it to get an earlier version and see what happens. Thanks!

    Yeah, new Moto devices don't have the old Gallery app after Nougat, only Photos.

    Which way are you using to delete the picture? The trash can at the bottom or the three dots top right? Same problem on both?

    Huh, that is weird. Is your SD card formatted as Internal Storage or Portable Storage? And is Google Photos completely up to date?

    I just checked on my X Play that updated recently to Nougat and moved a couple of pics to the SD card. I opened one of them in Photos, clicked on the three dots top right and after selecting 'delete' I had to allow the app access to the SD card. After this step I managed to delete the pic.

    Yes, it's weird. My SD card has always been Portable storage and my Google Photos version is 3.7.171902479 Oct 12, 2027.

    I've tried both ways. No luck either way.

    I moved your thread to Z Force forum, where I think it will be easier getting some ideas from other owners.
