8.1 final Is about to start rolling out which will fix this..
I just got the thanks for being part of the Beta email which comes before the rollout starts.
Update to Android beta 8.1 it solves this issue. Go through the steps on the nokia support page to update.
same problem. just factory reset my Nokia 8 this evening and the same situation happens, always shows "acess denied" everytime i allow the Photo app to acess my SD card. Looking forward to seeing Nokia and Google app developers to take action
Something to add to this thread, both myself and my fiancee has a Nokia 8, mine has never had this problem, hers has had it from the beginning. Mine is a few months old, as I got it when it came out and hers is about a month old. Reformatting the SD card doesn't seem to help, nor does resetting the app settings. Here's hoping for an official 8.1 release asap.
Nokia clearly don't read the forums. I've yet to see an answer from a Nokia/HMD staffer.
Report the issue by email here instead: https://www.nokia.com/en_gb/phones/support/
You will at least get it logged by someone inside the company that way.
have same problem
can not delete picture and video from google photo app!!!
Replying to keep this thread active as the problem is still there.
Add me to the list.. Somethings gone crazy and now the phones default photos app (Google Photos) cant manage the phones photos.
Something needs tweaking at Nokia Firmware level I think as it happens even with the older versions of Google Photos.
