The update will see Google Photos deliver all-new movies and a faster way to share photos and videos.
Now users can simply pick the photo that they want to share and select the people they want to share the photo with – no need to select a third-party app. The new update, according to Google, is ultimately to reduce the time users spend toggling from one app to another just so they can share photos.
“Sharing all the photos from your weekend with friends can be hard: Not everyone uses the same apps, texting can be slow, and email has attachment limits,” Google said in a blog post.
The intended recipients on Google Photos will then receive a notification. If sent via a phone number, the recipients will get a link to photos and videos by SMS. According to Google, if the recipient has an email address, a link will be emailed to them.
The other feature of Google Photos that has come to define the app is automatic creation, in which the app makes movies from recently uploaded images. The feature is now getting an update which will see movies generated from creative concepts and not only from recent photos. One of the creative concepts is generating movies from images of your children, so you can watch them growing right in front of your eyes.
Google says that it is launching the new concepts this week and promises that it will launch more in the coming months.
