A couple of weeks after adding auto-correcting feature that got everyone talking, Google Photos now has a new feature that makes it easier to back up your photos no matter the connection.

The new feature, which came alongside updates to Allo, Duo and Maps, will help you to store, organize and share your photos and videos without stress. It doesn’t matter where you are and the type of connection available to you; the new automatic and faster backup feature makes it easier to back up your lovely photos.

“So today we’re rolling out two new features on Android and iOS to make backup and sharing easier on low connectivity. Now your photos will back up automatically in a lightweight preview quality that’s fast on 2G connections and still looks great on a smartphone,” Mario Queiroz, Vice President, Product Management said in a blog post on Wednesday.

The most interesting part of the new feature is that; your photos will be backed up when you are in an environment or area where the Wi-Fi connection is good. In an area where the network is poor, your picture will be automatically backed up in a lightweight preview until a strong network is available. This makes it absolutely easy to back up your photos and not lose them because of poor connection.

Never mind if you’re at the beach or hiking in the mountains, with Google Photos you can now share pictures quickly even with a spotty connection by sending first in low resolution so friends and family can view them right away. They’ll later update in higher resolution when connectivity permits.”

Google is also making it easier to organize your pictures so you don’t have to spend all day trying to sort things out. A new update that lets the app to automatically create animations, movies, collages, and albums was added by Google. Take movies for example, Google Photos will “select the best moments, put them together in one place with professional-style transitions, and set it all to music.”

The new update has rolled out to users in Brazil, but will soon be available to a global audience in coming days.

Earlier in March, Google Photos added a functionality that automatically corrects the white balance in any image you open. This will solve a lot of stress and make your picture look like that of a pro. It means you no longer need a third-party tool in the form of an editing tool to correct off tones.

The feature has been hailed by many users of Google Photos as one that will transform the way they use the app.

Last September, Google Photos was updated with a new feature that lets “you pick the photos, tap “share” and select the people you want to share with, instead of the apps.” The update makes photo and video sharing faster than it used to be. As a matter of fact, your friends on Google Photos can also get notifications when those photos are shared. A link will be sent to them automatically via SMS once a photo or video has been shared.
