Google will now feature a ‘Live album’ section in a new update for its Google photo
While Google unveils its latest Pixel 3. It has announced a new feature ahead of the Pixel event in New York. The Photo app will promises to become more interesting with the latest update. A new feature called “Live Albums,” will automatically share photos of people you select with friends and family. For example, the feature could be used to share photos of your children with your extended family, instead of just a spouse. You could also specify certain, close friends who would always receive the photos you took together.
Easy, collaborative photo sharing has been something of a holy grail for photo apps for years. It’s been the basis of numerous startups including Bump, whose founder David Lieb now leads Google Photos, Fabric, Batch, Color, Cluster, and many more. Facebook Moments also tries to make collaborative photo sharing easier. But automation using A.I. technologies and facial recognition is a next step, and one that makes Google Photos an even more compelling app.
In practice, it means that you wouldn’t have to manually share photos with certain people ever again – you can just set up a Live Album once, and then allow the automation to take over. The new ability comes in version 4.3 of Google Photos, as indicated in the Apple App Store which is the on place the update is available for download. There is likely to be a delay in its availability on android as it is not spotted on Google play store just yet. However, the Android version of the update should be made available soon enough. Any other information about the Google Live album, will be updated on this article as soon as it reaches us.
