Google Photos adds suggested sharing, shared libraries, photo books

Share

Google said 1.2 billion photos are being uploaded each day.

Unleashed by Google at the I/O conference was a host of new features, most of which was paired with its Photo app, that demonstrates how well it can scan objects inside you and even objects around you. Now, Google is improving some of the service's biggest features, including sharing and more. Because honestly, you know how to take pictures - you just need to share them properly. Google is adding more machine learning magic to Photos with the introduction of 'Suggested sharing, ' which aims to take all the work out of sharing pictures. The sharing tab and Shared Libraries will roll out on iOS, web and Android in the coming weeks. Google Photos will also suggest photos to share to those recipients as well, in case they have images similar to those in your shared albums and want to send them out to the group as well. First, the user will select a pool of other users to share certain photos with-photos of your children can be automatically configured to be shared with their grandparents, for example. While users share their photos where friends are the subject, they can also get photos from friends where they are the subject. With Suggested Sharing, users are notified to share photos with other users, with Photos automatically picking out the best shots taken at that event. At present, this service is limited to the U.S., but Google says it will launch this in more countries soon. It lets you choose photos and will find the best shots among those by removing duplicates and poor quality snaps.

The seven-inch 20-page soft-cover book is available from $10, while the hardcover nine-inch 20-page book starts at $20.

In the future, Google plans to suggest Photo Books for you, automatically selecting images from your image library.

All of the newly announced features build on the machine learning features at the core of Google Photos.

Google Assistant may have just made its way to iPhone, but it's not even close to the most exciting thing to come out of Google I/O today.

While we now reside in the digital age, there are surely times when we've thought about churning out physical copies of some photo you clicked just recently.
