Google Photos gains option to mark photos as favorites

Monday, May 21st, 2018

Your smartphone makes it easy to snap photos on the go. Maybe too easy. You might end up with so many photos of the same things that it's hard to find your favorites. In the next few days, Google Photos will make that easier with the option to mark images as favorites in the app.

We first spotted this feature in a teardown way back in August of 2017. It apparently took Google the better part of a year to implement a star button.

Facebook adds new Stories features, starting in India

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

Facebook is rolling out a number of new Stories features today, starting in India. The social network is adding voice posts, an archive for shared Stories, and the option to save photos and videos from the Facebook Camera directly to Facebook's servers to conserve local storage space.

Voice posts will let users record an audio message to be played alongside an image of their choosing in their Story. The feature is meant to help users who don't have a mobile keyboard they're comfortable with, as well as those who just don't want to type.

Google’s hyped obstruction-removal feature in Photos is deprioritized, may still have major issues

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

We're coming up on a year since Google CEO Sundar Pichai showed off a nifty obstruction-removal feature in Google Photos at I/O 2017 — you know, the one where a chain-link fence is magically removed from a photo of a girl at bat. Some Pollyannas were hoping Google would offer an update on the now-mythical feature at this year's developer conference. While the company announced some cool enhancements to Google Photos at I/O 2018, there was no official follow-up on the fate of the buzzworthy feature showed off last year.

Google Photos Color Pop images are rolling out

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Google covered a lot of ground during the I/O 2018 keynote, but the thread running through all of it was artificial intelligence. Google Photos is one of the places users encounter this technology most often, and it's getting more AI magic. The Color Pop images Google announced in the keynote are already starting to appear in the app, but it's not an on-demand feature.

The subject in a Color Pop image is in full color, but the background is black and white.

Google launches Google Photos partner program

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

Google introduced a program today that will allow developers to integrate Google Photos into their services. The program includes an API that lets third-party services use some of the features Google Photos offers, such as the platform's powerful search functionality.

The Library API will let developers build mobile and web user experiences that integrate some of the best parts of Google Photos. Photos are searchable by date, content, and more, and can be organized and filtered using Photos' machine learning algorithms.

Google Photos is planning AI-powered recommendations called Suggested Actions

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

I/O is now in full swing, and so far Google has placed a significant emphasis on its AI-powered plans for the future. In fact, it's planning on making one of its best products ever, Google Photos, even better through liberal machine-learned seasoning called Suggested Actions. So the next time you grab a photo of your friends or an image doesn't come out quite perfectly, Photos will be able to lend a hand. 

During the presentation announcement at today's Keynote, Sundar Pichai noted that over 5 billion photos are viewed in Google Photos each day.

Update Notes for Android Auto, Photos, Tasks, Play Music, Maps, and more (April 30, 2018)

Monday, April 30th, 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 Photos is rolling out a friendlier and more powerful movie editor

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Last year, Google Photos treated iPhone and iPad users to a new, vastly improved video editor. Heavily based on the Clips app originally developed by Fly Labs and acquired by Google in 2015, the basic controls for working with multiple source videos in a timeline were much easier to see and use than other editors of the time, including Apple's own iMovie app. It has been a little more than a year since it launched on iOS, and now the new movie editor is rolling out to Android users.
