Last May Google Photos announced that it had reached 500 million active user-base—and it’s easy to know why it didn’t take time to achieve this feat. The photo app has remained one of the most popular apps in terms of features and regular updates. To further underscore just how important the app is, Google has once again added a cool new feature to reinforce its commitment to making Photos one of the best. Google Photos can now detect and group all your pet photos in one place, and alongside other photos.
That means Photos will henceforth sort out your photos based on algorithm. Perhaps, it brings an end to typing words like “dog” or “cat” when searching for pictures of your pet within the app.
Google Photos will also allow you to label the pictures it grouped for you—and that of course makes it easier to search and find the perfect portrait previously taken of your pet.
“When you want to look back on old photos of Oliver as a puppy or Mr. Whiskers as a kitten, you no longer need to type “dog” or “cat” into search in Google Photos,” Lily Kharevych Software Engineer, Google Photos said. “You’ll be able to see photos of the cats and dogs now grouped alongside people, and you can label them by name, search to quickly find photos of them, or even better, photos of you and them. This makes it even easier to create albums, movies, or even a photo book of your pet.”
It would equally interest you to know that you can now back up all your photos along with those of your pets in the app—and that is because Google Photos now lets you do just that with ease. Thanks to a feature that was added last March, the app now helps 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.
The most interesting part of the backup 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.
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 the tech giant last March. 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,” a post on Google blog explained at the time.
