Story Remix is once again back to being Microsoft Photos

Microsoft recently pushed through a change to the Photos app for Windows Insiders that saw the app renamed to "Story Remix." The choice of name sparked a bit of negative feedback, to say the least, but it looks like things are back to normal once more. As spotted by OnMSFT, Story Remix has been renamed back to Photos.

From the start, it seemed like the name might not stick. Microsoft was pretty clear following the change to the new name that it was part of a test through which more names would be tried. Indeed, before moving back to Photos, the app was briefly renamed from Story Remix to Photos & Videos.

It's entirely possible that the Insider team may test out yet more names, but many on the Insider program will likely be relieved to see the change back to Photos. The Story Remix name, which is also the name of a feature coming to the Photos app in the Fall Creators Update, seemed an odd choice to replace the more general, but descriptive, Photos name.
