Smarter Albums arrive on Google Photos

Albums become even more intelligent on Google Photos, thanks to this latest update.

We all love taking photos when on holiday, especially in places we’ve never been to before. But sorting through all of those captures after coming home isn’t a lot of fun, to say the least, especially if you’re the happy snapper-sort of photographer.

Fortunately, the team at Google Photos has come up with a solution to solve your woes by automatically creating an album of your trip with your best memories, saving you the time and hassle of going through the laborious process yourself. Plus, maps and location pins are included so that you’ll know exactly which places you visited.

You can edit the selection of photos and videos (if you’re not satisfied with the ones Photos chose), as well as add captions to them, then just share the album once you’re done. Don’t forget that you can turn on collaboration in your newly-created album, so that your family and friends can add some of their own captures from that unforgettable holiday.

And, since this is a server-side update, these smarter albums will already be available the next time you open up Photos on Android, iOS, or desktop.

So the next time you set out on your next epic vacation, you can rest assured that Google Photos will have all the highlights from your trip covered.
