Clarification Request
Are you sure? Isn't that app going away?

I'd ask if the shutdown is coming down now.

Most of these systems give months to give folk time to move to the new system. Or somewhere else. I only have your word this is the app that is going away.

Here's the passage from the link I supplied.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / October 16, 2015 8:26 AM PDT

"The shutdown will happen in stages starting on August 1st. The Android app will be the first to go. You'll have no choice but to update Google+ and download the new Photos app if you want to continue backing up and managing your content on Android. In the days and weeks following this, the web and iOS versions of Google+ Photos will stop working as well."

So there it is, it looks like it's fading away.

I said it doesn't show up in Photo tab, which is correct. Google Photos is a separate thing where you can store public and private. I shared these publicly. It doesn't make sense that my album I updated yesterday (with exact same permissions) shows on my profile, yet not this one.. thanks for your replies

So do you get it that Google+ is not a sure thing?

I think this summed it up:

"At some point, Google will explain the changes, and that Plus isn’t really Plus anymore."

I don't expect this to get fixed.
