Google Photos reverting one change to bring ‘Sharing’ tab back to the bottom bar

Last June 2020, Google redesigned the Photos app with cleaner navigation, new logos, and map view. In response to “user feedback and comments”, Google Photos is taking advantage of the change to return the “Share” tab to the bottom bar.

With last year’s revival, “Sharing” has been placed in the upper-left corner of mobile‌, so there are only three main categories for Google Photos. Although it is the third item from the fourth to the left, it is now returned to the bottom bar.


To preserve muscle memory, the library, fortunately, remains the last tab. “Bringing your shared photos back to the home screen allows you to easily view and manage shared content,” Google said.

Meanwhile, the Print Store where available is now popping up in that corner and out of the Library tab, where it currently carousel advertising books, photo and canvas prints, and premium print series. This tweak helps keep the Library tab focused on your albums, archives, and folders.

We are always looking to enhance the Google Photos experience by listening to user feedback and comments. Today, Google started rolling out UI changes to find your shared memories and print store. And, these changes are starting on Android today and will be coming to iOS soon.
