Google Photos is revamping some of its features for Android. The confirmation comes from David Lieb, the Product Lead of Google Photos who took to Twitter to ask the users about ideas on suggestions that can help Google Photos turn better. He wrote, “Hi Twitter! It's no-meetings week at @googlephotos and I've got a couple hours free. Tell me what you want to see next from Google Photos! New features, bug fixes, performance improvements, you name it. (No promises but very open minds!)”
While a lot of suggestions and ideas poured in, Lieb replied to many of them, hinting at the new features that Google Photos might be introducing in the coming days. Among the many features coming to Google Photos, the most popular are manual face tagging, pet photo sharing, and timestamp editing. To begin with manual face tagging, it is said that the Google Photos might now allow users to manually tag people by selecting the photos. If the app doesn’t suggest the names automatically, it will be now possible to do it manually. While the option is not available in the current version of Google Photos, it might be added in the future.
Apart from this, the search parameter for recently uploaded photos is also coming to Google Photos Android devices with the future update. It is also bringing in Edit Timestamps feature to Android. The feature, just like editing timestamps, is already available on desktop and iOS devices. Another feature which is on the roadmap of Google Photos is the ‘Pet photo sharing’ feature, which allows users to share images of puppies and cats on Google Photos with their partners.
