Google Photos has received three new biggest features - Suggested Sharing, Shared libraries, and Photo Books.
Anil Sabharwal, Vice President, Photos, said,
"We think there's still a big and different problem that needs to be addressed" beyond current sharing options.
Suggested Sharing -
We often forget to share pictures and videos with our families and friends after clicking them. But, not anymore, thanks to the app's newest feature Suggested Sharing, you will now be notified to share these pictures with your loved ones. And, guess what, Google Photos newest feature takes care of your taste as it only picks those photos which are best.
Shared Libraries -
This feature shares photos with another user automatically, but with proper control of course. The opt-in experience let you share your every photo you take, Thus, you can share your photo library with somebody special. "You have complete control over which photos you share." You can share from a certain date, or share photos that include certain things like your kids.
Photo Books -
With the help of Google Photos, you will now be able to turn your library into a physical copy with Photo Books. This feature chooses your best pictures and turns them into a printed book. This works like any other simple edit tool, simply pick the images you want to include, select the layout, and pick the book you want to print on, and boom!
Pricing for photo books starts at just $9.99 and $19.99 for a larger one. The feature is available for the US customers starting today and will be coming on mobile apps next week.
