After first testing out a new update to the Photos web app on the iCloud beta website earlier this month, Apple has now rolled out the update to all users (via Mac Generation). The overhaul to the app on iCloud.com introduces a macOS-like Photos experience with a sidebar that can be toggled on and off, and a scrollable thumbnail view of every photo in an album at the bottom of the site when looking at individual pictures.

Previously, Photos on iCloud.com placed albums in a tab bar at the top of the site, so the update makes it easier to navigate multiple albums at once. To top off the navigation tweaks, there are also four action buttons in the top right corner of the web app for uploading, adding, downloading, sharing, and deleting albums and photos.

The Photos web app on iCloud.com is still lacking macOS and iOS features like editing, shared albums, memories, and people, which uses facial recognition to organize your photos on Mac and iPhone. Users can head over to iCloud.com to check out the new Photos update on the site.

Next up—now that Facebook messenger sucks—iMessage on iCloud.com and iMessage on Android for cross-platform iMessage everywhere. I hope for a day where I can simply iMessage everyone.

Very nice, but it would be great if they could work on iCloud Drive for iOS. When I put photos on there, I cant even swipe between them. You have to exit each one and then click the next one and so on and so forth...

Google photos is amazing. Recognises everything when you search, it even made a very nice movie of my holliday.
I'm not sure if that's a good thing.

I'm surprised that Tim Cook let this become more like macOS and not like iOS, but i'm glad. This is much better in my opinion.

An infuriating and nonsense issue that shows that no one at Apple really tests some of these features.
