Earlier this year Google Photos was launched and was designed to replace Google+ Photos. So far the new service is a lot better than its predecessor and feels less clunky, not to mention the unlinking to Google+ is a welcome change as well. That being said, it looks like Google has decided to make the service even smarter.
If the idea of just uploading and storing your photos in the cloud isn’t enough for you, you might be interested to learn that Google Photos will now be able to organize your photos as well. This was announced at Google’s event earlier today where both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P were announced.
Through the use of artificial intelligence, Google Photos will now be able to identify people and objects in your camera roll and group them together automatically, making it easier to sort through your photos. There is also the ability to tag people in photos using either their name or nickname so that you can always refer to those photos easier.
There is the addition of Shared Albums which basically allows friends and family members to contribute to that album with their own photos. The updated Google Photos is expected to roll out to Android users later this week and it will also be coming to iOS and the web version of Google Photos soon.
