Google has this week rolled out a new update for its Google Photos iOS application which brings with it a number of new features, one of which adds support for the new Apple Live Photo technology.
The new release in the form of version 1.8.0 is now available to download directly from the iTunes App Store and allows Google Photo users to backup and view Live Photos, as well as reduce the cache usage when your device is low on space.
Other new features within the latest Google Photos release include improved application navigation providing ways to find the photos you are looking for and spend less time flipping “hamburger menus “ says Google.
Google Photos is the home for all your photos and videos. Automatically organized and searchable, you can find photos fast and bring them to life.
Features of Google Photos application include :
• VISUAL SEARCH: Your photos are now searchable by the people, places and things that appear in them. Looking for that fish taco you ate in Hawaii? Just search “food in Hawaii” to find it – no tagging required.
