21. apr Google Photos will finally tell you which photos weren't backed up

There was a point a year or more ago where Google Photos had a neat indicator on top of each media item that showed whether or not it was backed up.

Thanks to it, you could always tell at a glance which photo or video had been uploaded and which ones were still pending. That indicator disappeared completely, but the Photos team has finally realized the extent of its mistake by removing it, so it's bringing the functionality back.

An upcoming gallery view in Photos should let you see which media items haven't been backed up, and manually choose the ones you want to upload. That's all we really wanted, isn't it? It's a necessary feature for users who don't have automatic backup enabled and can never tell what's uploaded and what isn't, or those who get stuck with a mysterious "30 items uploading" for days on end with no clue as to which item is stalling the process.
