I was wondering if there was a timeline for the release of Photoshop CC for Android?
I know that Ipad has this feature already but I would like to use it for my Galaxy Tab to do work.
This is a user Forum, so you are not really addressing Adobe here, even though some Adobe employees thankfully have been dropping by.
Adobe employees and pre-release and beta testers are naturally subject to non disclosure agreements so until the official announcment is made you are not likely to get truly meaningful information on a timeline.
And considering the unjustified whining of some Mac-users who had problems understanding that the release-date »2019« did not mean »june of 2019« or something similar Adobe might be holding back on long-term announcements on this …
I am not aware of any plans or announcements regarding Photoshop for Android. Have you seen any?
"I would like to use it for my Galaxy Tab to do work."
I have not heard anything about Photoshop for Android either. This first version of PS for iPad is missing enough features that I am only playing with it for the time being and not using it for real work. While Adobe has added several new features since its release at Adobe MAX last year, I am hopeful that one day soon it will be ready for prime time.
Whilst I can see an advantage of portability, I cannot envisage doing serious work on a tablet (iOS or Android). My current desktop, which I am looking to replace soon, has 64GB RAM, several terabytes of disk space, over a terabyte of scratch disk, a GPU with 8GB dedicated VRAM, 3 monitors, full colour management (with hardware calibration and profiling something which does not exist on iOS or Android). A handheld tablet is not going to compete with that old system anytime soon and, when tablets eventually do catch up, images sizes will dictate that the desktop systems will also have moved on considerably.
I disagree wholeheartedly... You see, that used to be the case. Having an iPad version made sense because now the Mac ecosystem runs on iOS. All one operating envrinment. so the Photoshop used on a tablet will be same as on the computer.
Now Android... always being forgotten... we have not only better hardware in many cases, but consider Samsung devices running DeX environment. Think about it. I can bring my tablet or even phone anywhere, just plug in a single cable to any monitor with HDMI or digdisp and bluetooth a mouse and keyboard and I have a fully running desktop environment and pc fully capable of running Adobe products. Think about it. A grpahic artist can invest is a roll up monitor (flexible) and carry with them and just use their phone to Photoshop ANYWHERE. That's pretty neat. While I may be of the few people running 16gb ram and a 4.2 ghz OctaCore Ryzen7 CPU, my Note9 has an almost as fast octa core APU an 6GB ram, which is enough for photoshop easily. That competes with most hoe user's regular pc's.

There is still MacOS, isn't there?
Yeah but phasing out. MacOS is no longer being made. Its MacOS on the
mobile platform now.

Yes, there is. The new Mac OS is macOS 11, while mobile devices use iOS. There have been speculations on the Apple forums which get shot down.
