Google is getting ready to unveil a new online picture sharing and storage service at the company’s upcoming Google I/O software developers conference later this month.

Not linked with Google+, the tool will supposedly allow users to post pictures to Facebook and Twitter in a more straightforward way than is currently possible through Google. It will also represent another stab on Google’s part at the photo-sharing market currently dominated by Instagram, Snapchat and Flickr.

Google finally gave the AOSP camera app the makeover it deserved last month, renaming it Google Camera. In the process, though, the company removed a lot of features including a countdown timer and the ability to take time-lapse videos.
