Google Photos will now remind you of photos you took in the past
Google Photos may have just gotten a number of organization improvements in its version 1.3 update a few days ago, but the search giant isn’t stopping there. Google has just announced a new feature that’s now rolling out to the new Photos app that will help you take a stroll down memory lane.
Google’s Assistant feature already does a pretty great job at compiling recent photos together, but now the app will take it one step further. With the new opt-in feature that comes with this update, you’ll get cards in the Assistant view that will remind you of photos from different events from your past, including a collage of places you visited and people you saw that day. You can share the photo if you’d like, or you can keep it to yourself and save it to your device’s gallery. This is sort of Google Photos’ version of Timehop.
The new feature is already available on Google Photos for iOS and the web, and has just begun rolling out on Android. Like I said before, this is an opt-in feature, so you won’t start getting Assistant card notifications unless you tell the app it’s okay. Hit up the Play Store link below to grab the latest version!
