A full-fledged Google Photos PWA will ideally enable users to upload photos directly from Android apps and perhaps provide notifications for automated creations as well. Before it was removed, the section presented information on certain tablets like the Shield, the Galaxy Tab S2 and the Sony Xperia tablet.

Android tablets have seen a steady decline for quite some time now.
While the tablet form factor is unlikely to go away anytime soon, Android on tablets is not a paradigm likely to continue significantly longer. However, none of the tablets Google promotes on the website are even available anymore.
