Google has updated its Google Photos app to bring quite a few new features including the ability to create sharable animations from videos.
Users can upload their images or videos, and using the Android, iOS or the Web variant of Google Photos they can create animations from these images or videos. With the update, Google Photos will also automatically put the images right side up when it finds images in collection that are sideways.
Google says that the new features don’t require the user to do anything manually as it is done through machine learning in Google Photos. When Google Photos is ready with the new animations or with a new collection of favourite images, it will start showing Cards under the Assistant tab of Google Photos.
Trying to make the Photos app more appealing to users, Google will create a photographic memory that will include favourite photos. Google believes that the new Photos feature will “make it easier to look back at your fondest memories.”
The update will also enable Google Photos app to show a card with most notable images and it will include the most recent highlights from the images taken.
“Today [Wednesday] we’re bringing you four new features for Google Photos – three new ways for you to relive and the share moments that matter, and a quick way to fix some of those pesky sideways photos in your collection,” said Tim Novikoff, Product Manager, Google Photos in a blog post.
