Google Photos is beginning to receive the updates that were presented in the event of Google Pixel 3, without being exclusive to it.
Google photos updates | In a very predictable event of Google Pixel 3, Google Photos was one of the most important players. Regardless of whether or not you opt for one of the new Google phones, the new features of Google Photos interest you, as they will work for everyone.
Despite being presented in the event of Google Pixel 3, will not be exclusive to the new Google mobile. The update of Google Photos is beginning to reach all users of the application.
Smart albums, facial recognition now has a purpose
Some time ago Google Photos includes a facial recognition, which is able to group our photographs by the people who appear in them. If you want to see pictures in which your mother appears, it is as easy as going to Albums -> People and pets, and looking for the specific person.
Google wanted to go a step further, creating a feature called Live Album, which is beginning to arrive from today around the world. This feature allows us to generate an album that will be updated automatically with each new picture.
Imagine that you want to create an album that gathers all the photos of your family. When you receive this feature, you can create a new album, and Google will give you the option to create a Live Album. Select the option and include yourself, your mother, your father, your sister, your brother-in-law, your dog, whoever you want.
At that time, Google will begin to add photographs that you have made in which the members of your family appear individually. This process is automatic and since creation, you will not have to do anything else.
The album will automatically add each new photo of its members without having to do anything.
The album is not only automatic, but it is also intelligent. Photographs that go wrong (a blurred image, for example) will be discarded in the albums, will also discard repeated photos, something that is appreciated.
The new Google Home Hub, the intelligent digital framework
Google emphasizes the ability of its new smart screen, Google Home Hub, to become a smart digital framework, which will be integrated with Live Albums automatically.
One of the biggest annoyances of digital frames is having to update the photo gallery manually. With smart frames, this does not happen, since we can see any type of album on the screen. This includes the new album types, which become one of the central axes of the user experience.
it will save you from the endless scrolling on your mobile to get the photos you are looking for, And the Google Home Hub makes it easy. Hey Google, show my picture taken from India gate, And like that, you can search for your photos.
The edition comes with portrait mode
We already knew this news a few weeks ago, since it was hidden in Google Photos. With the new update, it is now available for mobile phones that have portrait mode. Google talks about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 2, but indicate that other phones, such as the Motorola G6, can access this portrait mode editor.
There are three features that allow us to edit the portrait mode:
- Focus point : We can choose the focus area for the portrait mode.
- Focus color : The defocused area can have a color gradient until you get to black and white.
- Defocus adjustment : A long-awaited feature.
it is good to know that these are features of the portrait mode that we already enjoyed on our mobile, and not an exclusive that, Only those who buy the new Google mobile will have it.
Google has announced that all the updates of Google Photos begin to arrive from today to several countries, without specifying which. We assume that this feature will reach the regions where facial recognition is enabled.
