Google has started rolling out new sharing functionality for Google Photos. The company unveiled the new functionality at its annual I/O developer conference. Google is launching the AI-powered suggested sharing feature alongside Shared Libraries. With the new feature, the company aims to make the Google Photos app more social instead of a personal photo collection app.
After the addition of Suggested Sharing, Google Photos will now prompt users to share photos by pushing alerts to their smartphones. The new update will also identify people in the picture using the facial recognition technology and machine learning. It also add the location of the place where the picture was taken
Users can also share pictures by sending them a link via text or email to people who don’t even use Google Photos.
The Shared Libraries allows users to share either share your entire photo collection with someone else, or they can configure it to share only selected photos. Recipients can choose to save some or all of the shared photos from this library, to make them searchable in Google Photos’ app.
The new features are rolling out on iOS, Android and web and will complete by the end of the week....
