On the occasion of the third-year anniversary of the popular Memories feature on Google Photos, Google is giving it a “biggest update” with a major algorithm redesign. It becomes equally important for the developers to bring a new way of experiencing the feature that is viewed over 3.5 billion times each month. A new collage editor is also on the changelog to let users board some memories in a single frame.
What’s new in Google Photos Memories?
Google Photos will now utilise more videos and still photos of people to maximise the potential to relive those videos in a better way. The addition of instrumental music, movement, and video will improve the dynamicity of the feature. Memories will now be more impactful than before.
However, you can always hide pictures of certain people or for a certain time to get included in the Memories. There are several other highlighted features that creatively edit the old memories and develop beautiful collages, animations and Cinematic Photos. To make Memories more impressive, the developers are adding improved Cinematic Photos, and even introduced a new feature called Styles. Features are detailed below:
