Google’s robust application, Google Photos is about to get some new sharing features its way, namely, Suggested Sharing, Shared Libraries, and Photo Books.
Suggested Sharing will use artificial intelligence, more specifically, machine learning to give you suggestions as to who you might want to share your photos with (based on who Google recognises in them). Once shared with your loved ones, they will be able to see these photos and add more of their own to the collection too.
Shared Libraries lets you automatically share photos with one special other. You can adjust this feature to either share your entire photo library, or shots from a specific date or, rather more usefully, all photos of a specific personwith them.
Both these 2 new features, Suggested Sharing and Shared Libraries will appear under an updated “Sharing tab” on iOS, Android, and the Web application in weeks to come.
Going back to basics, Google also announced that they’re going to launch something called Photo Books. Google Photos Photo Books creator will give you a fast and convenient way to get your images printed and bound in either a soft or hard-cover book. Google claims that their app will be able to help find the ‘best’ photos, eliminate duplicates and low-res images. Softcopy books will cost US$10 whilst hardcopy ones will cost US$20.
