Google Updates ‘Google Photos’ with automatic sharing features.


Today, Google udates it’s Google Photos app with new sharing feature which he announced at Google I/O.

Google says….

the sharing features are rolling out now across Android, iOS, and the Web.

Suggested sharing uses machine learning to automatically identify photos and suggest recipients, making sharing as simple as a single tap. With shared libraries, sending and receiving photos with one person is effortless—you can automatically share your full photo library or customize just what you want to share.

The update adds a dedicated “sharing” tab to the bottom of the app and several different ways to share photos. For one, the app will now suggest photos for you to share and who you might want to share them with. The feature is largely based around facial recognition: if Google realizes you regularly share photos of a specific person with a specific email address, it will offer to send them any new pictures.

Photos ‘sharing tab’ will also display a feed of all the pictures and albums that have been shared with you, so it’ll get a bit easier to look through shared photos, too.

But the really big sharing feature being added with this update is automatic sharing. The feature is optional, but those who want it will be able to have Google Photos automatically share some or all of their photos with another person. Using the feature, a parent could, for instance, have Photos automatically send their spouse any pictures taken of their children.
