Google Photos has recently received several AI-powered updates to improve the user experience and make it easier to organize and share photos. Here are some of the key features and improvements:

  • Memories: Google Photos now includes a “Memories” feature that uses AI to surface old photos and videos and create highlight reels of past events. The feature is similar to Facebook’s “On This Day” feature and is designed to help users relive happy memories.

  • Cinematic photos: Google Photos can now use AI to turn a series of still photos into a short, cinematic video with a moving background. The feature is called “Cinematic photos” and is designed to make still images more dynamic and engaging.

  • Locked folders: Google Photos now includes a new feature called “Locked folders” that allows users to store sensitive photos and videos behind a passcode. The feature is designed to provide an extra layer of privacy and security for users who want to keep certain photos and videos private.

  • Photo Editor: Google Photos has also received an AI-powered photo editor that includes several new editing tools, such as a “sky replacement” feature that can automatically replace the sky in a photo with a different one. The editor also includes tools for adjusting brightness, contrast, and saturation, as well as a new “color pop” feature that can automatically highlight the subject of a photo by desaturating the background.

  • Search improvements: Google Photos’ search function has been improved with AI, making it easier to find specific photos and videos. Users can now search for photos by specific people, pets, or even things like landmarks or food items.

  • Enhancements to existing features: In addition to the new features, Google Photos’ existing features have also received AI-powered enhancements. For example, the app’s “Assistant” feature, which suggests edits and animations for photos, can now create more personalized and dynamic collages and animations using AI.

  • Integration with Google Lens: Google Photos now integrates with Google Lens, a visual search engine that uses AI to recognize and identify objects in photos. This integration allows users to easily search for and identify objects in their photos, as well as copy and paste text from photos into other apps.

  • Improved sharing options: Google Photos has also received improvements to its sharing options, making it easier to share photos and videos with friends and family. For example, the app now includes a new feature called “Live Albums,” which automatically adds photos of specific people or pets to an album and shares it with selected contacts.

  • More storage options: Google Photos has updated its storage options to make it easier for users to manage their photos and videos. Users can now choose between “High quality” and “Original quality” for their photos, with “High quality” offering unlimited free storage and “Original quality” counting against the user’s Google Drive storage limit.

  • More intelligent organization: Google Photos has always had strong organization capabilities, but the latest AI boost makes it even smarter. The app can now automatically group photos by theme, such as “sunsets” or “beaches,” making it easier to find and view similar photos. Additionally, the app’s “Suggested actions” feature can now make more personalized and accurate suggestions based on a user’s previous actions in the app.

  • Improved video editing: In addition to the AI-powered photo editor, Google Photos now includes a new video editor that uses AI to suggest edits and enhancements to videos. The editor includes tools for trimming, stabilizing, and adjusting the exposure and colors of videos, as well as a new feature called “Dolly zoom” that adds a cinematic effect to videos.

  • Integration with third-party apps: Google Photos has also improved its integration with third-party apps, allowing users to easily share photos and videos with other apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, and Snapchat. The app also includes a new feature called “Photo Books,” which allows users to create physical photo albums directly from the app and have them printed and shipped to their doorstep.

  • More intelligent backup and sync: Google Photos’ backup and sync feature has been improved with AI to make it more intelligent and efficient. The app can now prioritize photos and videos based on their quality and importance, making sure that the most important photos are backed up first. Additionally, the app can now detect and remove duplicate photos, freeing up storage space on the user’s device.

  • Accessibility improvements: Google Photos now includes several accessibility improvements, making it easier for users with disabilities to use the app. For example, the app includes new features for voice commands and screen readers, as well as improved support for braille displays.

  • Availability: Finally, it’s worth noting that these AI-powered updates to Google Photos are available on both Android and iOS devices, making them accessible to a wide range of users. The updates are rolling out gradually, so users may not see all of the new features immediately.
