How to set up Live Albums and recent photo highlights on Google Home Hub (and other Smart Displays)

Saturday, October 20th, 2018

Live Albums were one of the most appealing features announced last week for Google Home Hub and other Smart Displays. They let you create a dynamic album from your Google Photos that automatically updates and contains photos of specific people in your life. The ability to make Live Albums rolled out to the Photos app, but it wasn't until yesterday that the albums started working properly in Ambient Mode on Smart Displays.

Google didn’t backtrack on its first-gen Pixel and Pixel XL promise of lifetime full-resolution Google Photos backups

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

It's becoming a bit of a tradition: Every year, when Google's new smartphones are announced, we have to confirm once again that the first-generation Pixel and XL will keep benefiting from their lifetime original quality photo backups for life. This year, Google made a little snafu, seemingly backtracking on that promise, but it's all been fixed now.

When the first Pixel and XL were announced, users were promised they could back up photos from the devices in original quality for free and in an unlimited capacity, without any deadline.

Pixel 3 owners get free full-size photo uploads until January 31, 2022

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

Free full-resolution photo storage has always been a selling point for Pixel phones. With this year's devices being pricier than ever, that perk is all the more important, and thankfully, it's still here: photos taken on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL until January 31, 2022 will be stored at full resolution indefinitely.

This isn't a surprise, but it's good to have official confirmation. The free storage period actually extends longer into the Pixel 3's lifespan than the Pixel 2's does — the 2 launched in late 2017 and it gets free storage until the end of 2020, whereas this year's model launches this month and gets free uploads a month into its fifth year of life (if we're counting 2018).

Google Photos Live Albums automatically uploads your best photos to your Home Hub

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

One of the features people love most about Google Photos is the automatic backup of pictures and videos. The Home Hub brings that to the next level with Google Photos Live Albums, which automatically uploads your photos to your Home Hub to show you a constantly-changing slideshow.

We'd already spotted this in a Photos teardown last month. Basically, you can select certain people's photos to be displayed on the Home Hub via Photos' face recognition.

Update Notes for Photos, Play Store, Keep Notes, and more (October 8th, 2018)

Monday, October 8th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Google is testing manual bokeh and Color Pop effects in Google Photos

Friday, September 21st, 2018

You might remember a few months ago when Google announced Color Pop effects in Google Photos. A few people got neat Color Pop photo suggestions in the Assistant tab, but a wide rollout never happened. Now, it looks like Google is again testing Color Pop, and it brought manual bokeh effects along for the ride.

Some Photos users have gotten new editing tools—they appear in the Photos app when modifying a picture.

Google Photos is fairly fresh off of its Material Theme update, but the latest version doesn't appear to have any significant changes on the surface to add to the new look. But that's not where the interesting things are on this update, we're looking into the APK to find details of what is coming in the future. The big addition will be an enhanced album that uses facial recognition to fill itself with pictures of your family and friends.

Google Photos updated to v4.0 with refreshed Material UI [APK Download]

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

In my opinion, Google Photos is probably the best service the company has ever released. Like all of Google's first-party apps, it was just a matter of time until it got its own refreshed aesthetic to match Android 9 Pie. A so-called "Material Design 2" update to Google Photos has just landed together with a major version change to v4.0. So far almost all the differences are skin deep, but we've got a download if you'd like to take a look.
