07 September 2018 3

Tech giant Google continues to improve Google Photos with new features and improvements, as the company celebrates its three years into existence. Updating the app with free storage codes, improved microSD card support, new movie editor, improved search features and much more.

All these features combined with the Google ecosystem makes it one of the best services for the purpose. In the latest update, Google is shifting Google Photos to the ‘Material Design 2’ that is in line with the latest UI language of Android 9 Pie. A new feature that lands to Google Photos are the ability to swipe upwards on any photo and check out its details.

Though a strange behavioral issue takes place in this regard where swiping up from the bottom of a particular photo opened triggers the info settings while also sometimes minimizes the photo back to the older layout where all photos are placed. Apart from these, there isn’t any drastic changes or updates unveiled even after the app teardown.

If you’re interested to get your hands on to this version, you can use the link below to try out the latest version. The app isn’t out for public yet via Google Play, so if you’re not into manually installing the app from third-party sources, the wait for you isn’t too much too.

Google Photos is app that I use 4-5 times in a week. And still not Pie on my Android. Naturally, the best I'm hoping is to get the update to Google Photos as early as I can.
