Google often upgrades its applications to improve user experience and prevent users from switching to other apps. And now, a fresh leak suggests a few intriguing additions that might soon be coming to Google Photos. A number of intriguing new features that will improve picture and video sharing, organise better, and help users keep track of significant occasions are now being tested by Google.
The core code of the Google Photos app was examined by app expert assembledebug, who discovered these functionalities, according to a report by biz.crast.net. On the (formerly Twitter) X platform, he published this. These additions have the potential to make Google Photos even more user-friendly, even if they are not yet available in the app and may change.
Streamlined Partner Sharing
A sharing shortcut that makes it easier to share albums with your spouse is being tested by Google. You may choose a contact as your partner during setup and share material with them with a simple tap rather than travelling through a sharing menu. It should be noted that this functionality differs from the present “Partner Sharing” feature in that it currently only supports one partner.
Automatic Album Archiving
You may also automatically migrate albums to an archive after 30 days thanks to a testing function. The albums, pictures, and videos you don’t wish to appear in your main library or in automatically created motion pictures or animations can be kept in this archive. Placing material in a secured folder that requires a second password can help improve security.
Google Photos and Google Calendar may soon merge, allowing users to set reminders and events right from the app. The capability to configure calendar events with information like time, title, and length is suggested by this feature. Although it’s unclear how Google would use this functionality, it may integrate Google Photos’ “Memories” feature with Google Calendar or turn images of invites and appointments into calendar events.
Notably, Google One users may find these capabilities more tempting because the code refers to advantages for them including reminders and auto-collection choices.
Remember that before they may be used, some features are still being tested and may change. However, they have the potential to make life simpler for consumers by streamlining picture sharing, classifying albums, and seamlessly integrating Google Photos with Google Calendar.
