Stories, movies and more! Great day for the Google+ team. Congrats to everyone!
 
9 new features in Google+ for Android

1. Auto Awesome Stories now combine your photos, videos and the places you visit into beautiful travelogues. You can read more at http://goo.gl/JGgzil.

2. Auto Awesome Movies are now available on Android, iOS and the web, so lots more people will receive highlight reels of their photos and videos. Here’s one example: http://goo.gl/9ljcdj.

3. You can now create animated GIFs and photobooth-style images on demand. Just tap the new plus button in Photos, and select either Motion or Mix.

4. Really big photo libraries are now supported on Android, so you can access your many thousands of photos quickly and easily.

5. You can now browse your entire photo library, as well as your highlights, by date. Just drag the new scroll bar to move forwards or backwards in time.

6. Profiles now display total content views on both Android and the web. (You can choose to show or hide this number via settings.)

7. A new navigation menu makes it easier to switch between your favorite circles and communities, as well as other places in the app.

8. It’s a lot easier to share content from your phone or tablet. To give it a try, just tap the new pencil icon at the bottom right of the stream.

9. The app menu now slides away as you move down the stream, letting posts fill the entire screen.

Look for the new app as it rolls out gradually to Google Play (http://goo.gl/ruuHW), and let us know what you think!

Any idea why I'm not getting any stories even though my settings are set the way you suggested in the blog?

Notice how the auto-enhance has failed to identify the correlation between the clouded sky background, and same background through girders in the bridge? There's a very distinct difference in the image processing there, also note the hard 'edge' (pale line) created on the bottom edge of the bridge and even in the oval sections in the upright suspension support part of the bridge, you can see light edging within the oval. I do love auto-enhance, and am planning to "play" with smart-phone cams as an photography art-form tool, but I'm still dubious about excessive auto image processing features like this. Do you know anyone using smart phone cameras as their "professional tool"?

New photo features in Google+ for Android

Today’s update to Google+ for Android is all about photos. In particular, the app includes:

Non-destructive photo editing across devices
Starting today you can start your edits on one device, and continue (or start over) on another. This means you can backup full-resolution photos from your desktop, edit them in seconds on your phone, then add some finishing touches from your tablet. (And you can revert to your originals at any time!) The technical term for this experience is non-destructive editing in the cloud, and we think you'll really enjoy it.

Brand new filters and creative tools
Now when you edit your photos, you’ll have a powerful set of tools (like crop and rotate), 1-touch filters, and Snapseed-inspired enhancements (like Drama, Retrolux, and HDR Scape). Mix and match to make your photos look their absolute best.

A single view of all your photos
The new ‘All’ view displays your entire photo library — whether it’s on your current device, or backed up in the cloud. If your library is really large (> 10s of thousands of photos), the app won’t show all your photos initially. But stay tuned, because we’re supporting larger and larger libraries over the next few weeks.

An easy way to browse your photos by date
In addition to search, there’s now another way to find your photos fast. Just swipe through your photos in the ‘All’ view, and look for the scroll bar on the right. Dragging the scroll bar up or down will quickly move you forwards or backwards in time.

The app is rolling out gradually to Google Play (v4.3, http://goo.gl/ruuHW), so check back soon if you don’t see it yet. #googleplusupdate

Happy holidays everyone!
 
Bringing your memories to life with Google+ Photos

Want to share some of your favorite memories of 2014? This week some Google+ users were gifted a personalized Year in Photos movie. It’s a chance to relive your past year in a short highlight video edited together and set to music. Check if you got your own at g.co/yearinphotos.  

For those of you who didn't receive a video this year, it's not too late to get other fun Auto Awesomes from Google+ that you can share with your family and friends in time for the Holidays. The best way to get started is to ensure you upload your photos to Google+ and that you’re opted in to receiving new Auto Awesome creations (http://goo.gl/AM75wp), such as animated GIFs, collages, movies and more. Google+ Photos will notify you of your newly created surprises. 

You can learn more about Photos and Auto Awesome here: http://www.google.com/photos/about/ 

Ready to get started? Here are some easy ways to upload your photos to Google+ Photos: 
● Enable Auto Backup on your device: http://goo.gl/gU93A5
● Download and enable desktop uploader: http://goo.gl/iCPXlm 
● Upload manually via the photos page: http://goo.gl/dOYuWn 

In addition to making fun new things for you, your photos will also be safely stored and accessible from all your devices. 

Happy Holidays!

Introducing Auto Awesome Photobombs with +David Hasselhoff 

Google+ Auto Awesome is all about fun surprises that bring your photos to life. Capture a quick burst of photos, and you’ll get an animated GIF. Take a series of portraits, and you’ll get a photobooth-style collage.

Today we’re announcing Auto Awesome Photobombs. What’s more fun than Benedict Cumberbatch photobombing U2 at The Oscars (http://goo.gl/WrLi1Z)? Or Michelle Obama at The White House (http://goo.gl/0LMPCa)? A good photobomb can turn an ordinary photo into something special and put a smile on your face. Now with Auto Awesome, celebrities can make a spontaneous appearance in your pictures!

We’re starting with +David Hasselhoff naturally, everyone’s favorite crime-fighting rockstar lifeguard.

To get your own photobomb, upload a new self portrait or group photo with friends, and leave a little room for The Hoff. He might just make a surprise appearance. :-)

P.S. You can also mention +David Hasselhoff in your public posts and comments. If you’re lucky he’ll add some awesome to the conversation.

Happy holidays all!
 
Two new kinds of #AutoAwesome: Twinkle and Snow

Just in time for the holidays, we’re rolling out two new ways to make your Google+ photos more awesome, automatically:

1) Twinkle: upload a new photo of something that sparkles (like a Christmas tree or a chandelier), and we'll gift you a version with lights that actually twinkle.

2) Snow: upload a new photo with snow to Google+, and we'll gift you a version with snow that’s actually falling.

In both cases, you'll get a notification when your #AutoAwesome image is ready. We hope these features help you celebrate the ‘wonder’ in winter wonderland! #googleplusupdate
