Before I forget:

Here’s one route.

  1. Go to Google Photos settings and set Google Drive –
    Sync photos & videos from Google Drive.

  4. Copy the contents of ‘Takeout\Google+ Stream\Photos\Photos from posts‘ to a directory in Google Drive\My Pictures

Otherwise, the article addresses Google Photos, Hangouts Chat, and Google+ (G Suite users).

Note: Google+ notifications are available for G Suite users only.
