Today in Google Drive you can view your Google Photos directly via a tab in the left navigation and from folders within My Drive.

In early January 2018, we will simplify Drive navigation by removing the Google Photos tab. You can continue to access your photos and videos in Drive by creating a Google Photos folder in My Drive. Learn more in the Help Center.

You can still access your photos and videos in Google Photos on the webAndroid, and iOS.
