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.
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.
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.
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.
I'm pretty impressed with the hardware and just the industrial design. I suspected that would be the case since their lead design guy designed probably my favorite phone to date the HTC One M7. The software side leaves some questions for me. Particularly around the frequency of updates. It seems like they stay pretty close to true Android but there will be some lag time as they have made modifications no question. Oh yeah and for Android nerds like me UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER!
Overall I'd say it is very intriguing but I'm still going to see if Google does a new Nexus 5. Worth checking out though...
