    Yeah it seems weird but I know people that use Google Drive to store their photos instead of G+ and ya can't explain to them how it is supposed to work…

    It is technically easier with the desktop app to upload photos..

    I tried to mess around with it tonight but it was confusing…you have to look at your albums in G+ and some of them will have the drive logo next to them…but other than that I do not know much about it

    Drive comes from the Google Apps team and is designed to store documents from different programs without tampering. Google Photos comes from the former Picasa team and is for JPEG, PNG files, has photo gallery facilities and impromptu resizing of JPEG for various web displays.

    Google can't unify the two without disruption to both communities

    So the benefit of this is IF you are storing pics in drive (which people do) let's say just like for cloud storage, and you wanted to share those or some of those on G+ you had to upload twice. Now, your drive images appear in the photos view in G+ and you can easily share from the same interface you would use to share regular photos with.

    Google+ is getting carried away I'm at the point I'm ready to delete it cause every time you turn around their adding more apps to go with g+ and none are relevant. Seems like Google is hellbent on getting photos off your phone without your approval.

    Google+ is a test platform for their ideas and we are the guinea pigs. There is more and more to come. They determine what is relevant. Relevance is to their game plan – total global domination in the pursuit of providing customised and personalised services for profit.

    I have no issues with beta testing services etc.. But I do want to know if I share an image from drive and then remove it… Is it removed from posts etc… Thats still a semi mystery…. In some cases..

    When I said that Google+ is a test platform for their ideas, I did not mean that we are beta testing services. What I mean is not about software, it is about the idea that they have an idea and we are the people who will provide the feedback as to whether it is a good idea or not a good idea.

    It is not about whether the software is production quality or beta test or alpha test.

    They don't follow the classic model of development – as far as I can see, what they make and deploy is "it" – there is no beta or alpha or production. If "it" does not work, whether this is a software bug or an idea fault, they fix it and don't spend the time agonising over the difference.

    If they do this, then they have really no interest to write a comprehensive how-to user manual – as the software is used, they put some words together to explain what "is".

    You can beta test an idea.. Gmail was one of them.. or they kill it quickly.. that is how most services live and die these days….
