Amazon Photos App Finally Gets A Redesign On Android
The Amazon Photos app was redesigned on iOS a year ago, but a similar redesign never made it to Android. Well now it's done, even if it took a year to complete. This links the Android app to its iOS counterpart.
Amazon has finally brought the redesigned Photos app.
First, the app is now more beautiful, more pleasing to the eye. This redesign should make browsing and sharing photos and videos easier.
You can now search your photo gallery directly from the main screen. When you swipe up in the Amazon Photos gallery, you'll find a new dashboard with organized features to filter photos by title, location, or year.
Now, if you tap the Amazon emoticon logo in the upper left corner of the gallery page, you will get more options like tags, downloads and impressions.
You will notice that the paper airplane logo is now in the top right corner. Well, this button will take you to a page where you can share images and videos with anyone you want.
If you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can save full resolution images for free. You also get 5GB of video storage as part of the package.
However, some users seem to dislike this change.
This update should bring Amazon Photos closer to Google Photos in terms of quality and what the app offers. It didn't take long for users to start leaving negative reviews on the Play Store after this change.
At the time of this writing, many have been published. It seems people don't like the update very much. They usually refer to feature changes because some features are no longer available or are no longer available.
For example, there doesn't seem to be any settings to save photos while the phone is charging. Another user claims that the edit function is now difficult to use and not as visible as before. The understandability of the user interface is also questionable, etc. If not, you will get the update soon so you can judge for yourself.
