They moved it! Using Google Photos and choosing to edit in Snapseed is still there.

Using Snapseed to edit photos
Snapseed is my favorite way to edit photos on my phone. It’s a free app from Google that you need to download and install on your phone. It’s available for both iOS and Android. Once it’s installed, you can use it with any photo in Google Photos.
The way to access it from Google Photos has recently changed, here’s how to get there now.
On iPhone, swipe up on the photo and you’ll see “Open in Snapseed” as an option below the photo
On Android, open the photo, tap the edit button, tap the 9-dot grid, then you’ll see Snapseed as an option.

How to get to Snapseed from Google Photos on Android has a Learning Guide for Snapseed for members. Snapseed: Getting started with photo editing
