I'm still getting used to the Auto Backup functionality in the Photos app. I turned this feature on and all my photo's are correctly synced to Google+.

When I delete a photo on my phone (Nexus 5) it also gets deleted on Google+. However, when I delete photos on the Google+ website, they don't get deleted on my phone.

Is this just how this thing works, or is there something wrong in my setup? I tried turning off Google+ photo sync in the settings, but that didn't change anything. When I delete it on the Google+ web page, it says the photos will also be deleted on all synchronized devices, so isn't that how it's supposed to work then?

It would make it a whole lot easier to delete photos that I don't need on a big screen like my laptop, and to have them automatically deleted on my phone to free up storage space.

  • ** Google+ web page, it says the photos will also be deleted on all synchronized devices** doesn't mean that photos will be deleted from your device. It means when you login to Google plus in some other device it will not show that deleted stuff.

  • Plus the photos that you delete online will be moved to trash/bin folder. It will stay there untill you delete it again. Apr 6, 2015 at 7:46

Yes this is how things work. Google+ does not sync photos, it backs them up online. It is a one way action from your device to Google+.
