Search engine giant Google is planning to make their social networking site Google+’s Photos a standalone service, according to reports.

Bloomberg reports “The move would enable the photo service to stand more independently and be accessible for consumers who aren’t part of Google+, potentially spurring more growth, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. The service, called Google+ Photos, would still work with the social network’s users and may be rebranded as part of the move, one of the people said.”

If the service comes alive Google user wouldn’t need a Google+ account to save and share photos with Google.
