Google Photos gets shared albums in latest update
Google Photos already makes it insanely easy to share photos with your friends and family, and now the service is getting even more handy sharing features. Today Google is rolling out shared albums in Google Photos, which is a fast and easy way to bring together everyone’s photos and videos in a single album.
Users have been able to send and receive full albums of photos through Google Photos in the past, but now Google is taking this feature up a notch. Now when you share an album with someone, that person will be able to join and add their own photos and videos to the album with just a few taps. You’ll also get notifications when new pictures are added. You’ll be able to save photos and videos from a shared album to your own Google Photos library, which is certainly a nice addition.
There’s no setup required to enable shared albums. All you need to do is select the media you want to share, send the link to whomever you’d like, and they can edit the album from there.
The new shared albums feature is rolling out to Google Photos on Android, iOS and the web starting today. Follow the Play Store link below to grab the latest version!
