How can one access pictures when offline without Gallery on the new Moto phones? Say I’m out of the country without wifi?
The photos and videos taken by your phone camera still reside on your phone. You just need a 3rd party app to view them
See here for some suggestions
Photos (and I believe videos) stored locally on the phone should be available via Google Photos even without an Internet connection. To see only what’s on the phone:
- Open Google Photos.
- Tap three stacked lines upper left.
- Tap Device folders.
Moto Gallery, the original Moto app, is still available for the latest Moto phones. Look for it around XDA sites as “Gallery.apk”, it works perfectly on my Moto Z Play and Moto G4 Play, it is exactly the same app, same icon as we know it from the earlier versions of Moto phones. For some strange reason Lenovo made that app unobtainable for use with the new Moto phones in Google Play replacing it with Google Photos.
