Google Photos Adding Suggested Sharing, Photo Books

Posted by at 8:20 am on May 18, 2017

Google during their I/O conference  showed off new tools to make it easier to share photos with others. The new suggested sharing tool is powered by machine learning to recognize faces in photos and match them with your contacts. The app will automatically select the best shots from events/locations and offer personalized sharing suggestions to family and friends.

The app can eliminate duplicates and select images that are in focus and then instantly push them to those in the photos. Google Photos can share albums and images with anyone, no Google Photos account required.

Plus Google Photos is adding a shared libraries feature, allowing people to share and contribute to specific libraries. Photos added to shared libraries will instantly appear on all devices/accounts linked to the library.

In a nod to the past, Google added a tool called Photo Books to Google Photos, which lets you create photo albums which can be printed in soft- or hard-covered albums. Think a merger of the analog and digital worlds! The feature can automatically pick the best shots among those selected, lay them out instantly, and then print and ship the album.

Google said these features will reach Android, iOS, and the web in the coming weeks.
