Google Photos has received a minor update, but quite a significant one. It’s the addition ‘smarter albums’ to curate your best shots in a single place.
You might be using Google Photos just to edit or store your memories. But from now, it will help you make albums from your existing photos to let you easily share them with your family and friends.
The update enables Google Photos to recognise your best shots and then composite them in a neat manner. Apart from bringing existing photos together, the photo sharing app will add maps to show your travelled places directly through location pins. This helps in recalling some past events.
Also, you can add text captions to all your automatically created ‘smarter albums’. You can additionally customise any of your existing albums with maps, location pins and text.
Google Photos with its ‘smarter album’ experience is started rolling out today on Android, iOS and the Web.
The new upgrade to comes just days after Google brought some new editing tools for your existing photos. It appears to be designed to encourage more people to opt the app that emerged as the future of Google+ Photos in May last year.
