Introducing new ways to organize and share your photos
With Google Photos, you have a home for all your photos and videos, organized and brought to life, so you can share and save what matters. Today, we’re announcing three new features that help you better find and share the photos and videos that matter, with the people that matter.Chromecast Support
Better share photos and videos in person, and on the biggest screen, your TV!
Beginning tomorrow, you can cast photos and videos to your TV with Chromecast. Choose what appears on the TV while you browse your library, and even cast photos you just took – photos and videos don’t need to be backed up first.
Chromecast support is rolling out this week on Android and coming soon to iOS.People Labeling
Label the people in your photos by what you call them, name or nickname.
This week in the U.S. you’ll be able to label the people in your photos however you want - Mom can be “Mom”, “Juliana”, or “Cat Lady” – whatever you choose. These labels are completely private to you and are not associated with a Google account or profile. Once people in your photos are labeled, you can make advanced searches to find photos of people with things, places or people, such as “Mom at the beach” or “Juliana and Marco in Hawaii.”
People labeling is rolling out in the U.S. this week on Android and is coming soon to iOS and the web.Shared Albums
Gather all your photos and videos from friends and family in one spot, and know as soon as new moments are added.
We’re introducing shared albums later this year – a new, easy way to pool photos and videos with whomever you want, and get updates when new moments are added. There’s no setup involved, and you can use shared albums on any device – Android, iOS, Mac, Windows and Chrome OS.
Stay tuned for updates on when these features are available. For more on today's Google announcements, visit http://goo.gl/klbhET
