  • Google Photos now includes a new Love Story video theme.
  • The theme automatically makes a movie with pictures and videos of yourself and your significant other.
  • The inclusion of Love Story brings the total number of themes to 10.


Up until now, Google Photos automatically created movies with nine different themes. That number increased to 10 today, reported 9to5Google, thanks to the addition of the new “Love Story” theme.

As the name suggests, the Love Story theme allows Google Photos to create videos with you and a significant other. The movie could also be of two other people, though that would be very weird.

Before you do anything, go to “Assistant cards” within Settings to make sure you have Creations checked. This is the setting that allows Google Assistant to automatically make movies, albums, and collages within Google Photos.

From there, tap the Assistant option at the bottom and then tap Movie. Swipe down to get to Love Story, then tap the Get Started button to select yourself and your significant other.

Once you do that, a prompt shows up that tells you it might take some time to create the movie. A notification alerts you when the movie is done and you can then see the finished masterpiece.

Editor's Pick

Google notes that Love Story works best if you have many photos of you and your significant other. Also, you can edit the movie after the fact and change the background music, insert photos and clips, and change how long an image or clip goes for.

Love Story joins Google Photos’ nine other themes, which include Doggie Movie, They Grow Up So Fast, and Selfie Movie.
