Google has announced that its Google Photos app now has more than 500 million users around the world and more than 1.2 billion photos are backed up to the app each day.
Google is adding some new sharing features to the Google Photos app, these include Suggested Sharing where the app will recommend photos for you to share using AI.
With our new sharing suggestions, you can finally share and receive all the photos that really matter to you, without the work. Using our machine learning technology, Google Photos will not only remind you to share—it will automatically select the right photos, and even suggest who you should send them to based on who was in the photos. Just tap send, and your friends and family will see all your photos, and get a reminder to add theirs too. Now all the photos of that birthday dinner or weekend trip are in one place, including—and especially—the photos you didn’t take.
You’ll see all your sharing activities and these suggestions in our new Sharing tab, which will be rolling out on Android, iOS and web in the coming weeks.
There is also a new shared libraries feature that lets you share a whole library of photos with people and a new Photo Book feature.
The Photo Books feature lets you easily create printed photo albums of your photos and this takes just a couple of minutes according to Google.
