Google has finally tweaked its cloud for photos to be in tune with latest trends in the visual industry. Now more than ever, people have all necessary tools to have professional-looking photo sessions. With smartphones upgrading their cameras to top-notch levels, many users are not satisfied with a periodical picture once in a while. However, this social trend is making their imagery collections chaotic. As such, Google came to their rescue with a comprehensive photo storing service.
Google Photos Will Mix Unlimited Storage with Modern Features to Create a Comprehensive Photo Storing Service
Google Photos is a service introduced on the market only two years ago. However, its cloud features are widely used by more than 500 million people each month. These users are uploading 1.2 billion photos per day. The core attraction of this service is its unlimited storage. If users want to save their pictures in full size and not just compressed, they have to pay a fee.
In the era of high mobile technology yet limited space, Google Photos was a much-awaited solution to a modern problem. However, thanks to upcoming updates, it will become an even more versatile photo storing service. This new version focused on sharing features and also hardware products as well.
Google Photos Will Receive a Total of Four Innovative Features for Visual Content
Therefore, the new additions are shared libraries, sharing based on facial recognition, printing, and Google Lens. Shared libraries allow people to choose with whom to share a particular collection. Once they make their decision, the moment they upload their libraries, their selected persons will be able to see the new pics automatically.
Moreover, Google Photos will have a Sharing section. This is where photos will be sorted based on people who are in them. This section uses AI for face recognition. As such, users can choose to share only the photos where a person appears to that particular user.
The third update gives users the option of printing their own visual books. People can select their favorite photos for their own personal hardcover or softcover albums. They can also allow Google to run its magical algorithms. By indicating a particular collection, Google can identify the best photos in it. Once the book is ready, users can order it at a starting price tag of $9.99. However, this feature is available in the United States only.
There’s one more feature that the company is going to add to Google Photos in the foreseeable future. This is about Google Lens which relies heavily on AI technology. This feature can detect certain elements in a picture by using image recognition. This way, people will no longer have to create tags or descriptions for their images. This feature works best with overcrowded clouds as it is hard for users to find exactly what they want. With the new Lens option, users can type in the search box keywords like restaurant, flower or animal. Google will then retrieve the best images that fit these terms.
