I’ve been remise for several months in working with Google Photos.  I thought when the updated Photos app first came out there was a map at the top to view.  I cannot seem to see that now.  I do know that there is the explore map function and that’s very handy.  Was I dreaming?

The new map feature for Google Photos is on the search tab. Maybe what you are referring to is the fact that it has a map on the top and the photos on the bottom. You can control how big or small the map is by dragging the center line up and down.

Watch the 2 videos below about the map feature. One thing has changed on the Android – the map feature is now the first tile in the places section instead of having a whole section to itself.
