New features coming to Android and iOS Google Photos app
Google is bringing new features to the Google Photos app (iOS, Android) that will help you better organize your photos. Google, in a blog post on Tuesday, called these upcoming updates an attempt to spring clean the Photos app. These updates will let you browse your photo albums, import photos and videos you’ve saved elsewhere, find screenshots, and locate your shared content.
The Google Photos app will soon show users a list or grid that can be filtered by photo type (eg albums, shared albums, favorites, device folders) and then sorted. And the new photo import section helps you import photos that were in a box inside the closet or gathering dust in a drawer. Photos can be copied from other services or scanned or moved from a digital camera.
Google Photos update will make it easier for users to categorize and find certain images
Google says, “With all your photos and videos in Google Photos, you can easily search and sort them, relive them in new ways with Memories, share them with family and friends, give them new life by editing them, turn them into photo books and much more.” And the sharing tab now includes photos and videos shared between partners, content shared by albums, and photos shared by conversation.
The updates will begin rolling out this week for Android users and will eventually be made available to iOS devices. With one of Android’s new features, “you’ll see a carousel of in-context suggestions for copying text, cropping, searching using Google Lens, and more when viewing a screenshot. These suggestions help you quickly take action on your screenshot library with just a tap.
