+Matthew Beckett's #io15request  was to ask what was new with Android Wear at this year's show. There weren't any hardware announcements, but developers did get a chance to learn more about developing for the Android Wear Platform.

If you'd like to check videos of those sessions out for yourself, you can visit https://events.google.com/io2015/videos and select Wearables from the list of topics on the right side of the page.

+Mike Crumpler asked about difference between backing up high quality photos and original quality photos in the new Google Photos app.

Here's some insights straight from the team!

If you choose High Quality, photos >16MP will be resized to 16MP, and we also do some compression to save space. If your photo is smaller than 16MP, we won't reduce the size but yes the photo may be compressed as well.

If you choose Original, your photo is not touched in any way, and will consume quota regardless of size.

Hope that helps!

+Jay Khimani asked how the Google Photo announcement -- that Photos offered unlimited back-up storage for photos and video -- affects his current Drive storage limit.

Google Photos provides unlimited high quality photos and videos for free, and will maintain the original resolution up to 16MP for photos and 1080 high-definition for videos. You can switch to storage size setting High Quality by following this helpful article, https://goo.gl/nTDqNQ

Choosing or changing this setting affects storage sizes going forward, and won't resize items you've already stored.

Hope that helps!

+Lunix Watt asked whether Google Identity will replace Google+ sign-in.

Thanks for the question, and interest in Google+ and identity. Unfortunately, we can't comment on this question, though you can follow our official +Google+ page to hear the latest updates on Google+.

Thanks!

+Thomas Tenkely requested a slide-out hamburger menu on Google+.

Thanks for the feedback Thomas, sharing this request with the team! And while I don't have an immediate answer for you, I am sharing my favorite kind of hamburger.

Thanks for sharing!

+Yoguely suggested that Google create a cool, quick and simple way to share videos.

Great feedback! If sharing videos through YouTube, the Google Photos app, Google+ or Drive doesn't tickle your fancy, will pass the feedback to the team to think through something new! Maybe it'll be the next Google[X] project ;).

Thanks for the feedback!

+Paolo Amoroso asked about what happens to Google+'s photo editing web tools in light of the Google Photos launch.

Here's some insights from our Photos team!

Building Google Photos let us start fresh in building a brand new editor that reflects all we've learned thus far. Instead of trying to make one size fit every photographer, we've created two distinct sets of tools:

1) A streamlined yet powerful set of tools right inside the newly launched Google Photos. We focused on the edits that most people perform most often: cropping & rotating, fixing color & tone, applying filters.  

2) If you're missing the power of Snapseed, we made sure that Snapseed capabilities are still in easy to reach from any photo: tap the overflow menu from a photo, then "Edit in Snapseed." Search or browse to any picture in Photos, then apply the awesome power of selective edits, HDR Scape, and more.

Hope that answers your question Paolo!

Recap: Day 2 of the #io15request program

For our fourth year in a row, we had a great time answering questions and requests about I/O, coming in from every corner of globe. We already shared our favorites from Day 1 (https://goo.gl/PvLJBq); here are some highlights from Day 2:

1. No Google I/O would be complete without Google designer +Matias Duarte sporting one of his famous shirts, so thanks to +Jib for the suggestion. https://goo.gl/nVrFBN
2. +Jacek N. Kozioł heard about Google Cardboard’s new button and was interested in more details. We were happy to provide a close-up look. https://goo.gl/5l1Fbf
3. Educator +Lisa A Williams passed along a request from one of her students for a photo of him next to an Android. The friendly robot in our photo is a kid too! https://goo.gl/NQAom1

This year, we received a total of 145 requests between Google+ and Twitter - you can see all the photos we posted in this album (https://goo.gl/KHSTG4). Thanks to everyone who participated. We hope to see you again next year!
-Your #io15request team!
