Google Photos Launches Advanced Sharing Features

Google Photos Launches Advanced Sharing Features

Finally, Shared Libraries allow couples or family members to share their entire photo gallery with another person, which can be risky but Google is playing it smart, allowing photos from only a certain time forward - say, the day you met your partner - to be seen.

Google announced a few cool things were coming to Google Photos back at I/O, but there was no date for the rollout. Specifically, it's launching the AI-powered Suggested Sharing feature along with Shared Libraries, both of which are created to make the Google Photos app a more social experience, rather than just a personal collection of photo memories.

Also rolling out today is Shared Libraries.

Early apps like Flock tried using location to tie different sets of photos together, even when they lived on different people's phones; others like Bundle and Cluster aimed to better organize photos into albums, thinking that would solve the sharing problem; and others still tried to mimic texting as means of improving photo sharing. That could be useful for a small barbeque, for instance, but likely won't happen if you're at a big concert or sporting event. You might decide not to, now that Google Photos can do much of the legwork for you. These suggestions are made for one of two reasons: either the photos in question appear similar to images you've shared in the past with certain people, so Google thinks you may want to share them, or the photos contain people that Google knows are in your contacts, and thus you may want to share them.

Toutefois, l'Atlético Madrid , privé de recrutement durant ce mercato estival par la FIFA, devrait tout faire pour garder son joueur de 22 ans.

With the addition of Suggested Sharing, Google Photos will now prompt you to share photos you took by pushing an alert to your smartphone.

The new library sharing features are accessed from the sidebar menu's "Share your library" option, not the "Sharing" tab. The app will let users edit what is shared, too, either adding or deleting content and picking people. Once an invitation is sent and accepted, photos are placed in the shared space automatically, with the recipient receiving a notification whenever new photos arrive.

Well, the first round of those updates is here, including proactive suggested sharing and, perhaps more interestingly, automatic photo sharing on an opt-in basis.

Recipients can choose to save some or all of the shared photos from this library, to make them searchable in Google Photos' app. But suggested sharing and shared libraries are major new features.
