Want to pool your kid photos with your partner so that your parents can always stay up to date? Or search for a person by name, or share your photos on a big screen via Chromecast? It’s all rolling out—some now, some coming soon—across Android, iOS, and web.
Per the team’s post:
Label the people in your photos by what you call them, name or nickname.
This week in the U.S. you’ll be able to label the people in your photos however you want – Mom can be “Mom”, “Juliana”, or “Cat Lady” – whatever you choose. These labels are completely private to you and are not associated with a Google account or profile. Once people in your photos are labeled, you can make advanced searches to find photos of people with things, places or people, such as “Mom at the beach” or “Juliana and Marco in Hawaii.”
People labeling is rolling out in the U.S. this week on Android and is coming soon to iOS and the web.
Gather all your photos and videos from friends and family in one spot, and know as soon as new moments are added.
We’re introducing shared albums later this year – a new, easy way to pool photos and videos with whomever you want, and get updates when new moments are added. There’s no setup involved, and you can use shared albums on any device – Android, iOS, Mac, Windows and Chrome OS.
I’ve been testing these features for a while & think you’ll really like ‘em.
