Google Photos update – Convert from Original to High Quality

Google Photos update – New ways to free up space

Running out of space on your phone is the worst. You’re stuck constantly deleting apps, music, and pictures, just to make room for one more photo or video.

Today, we’re making it easy to free up space on your phone, anytime you need. Just tap “Free up space” in Settings, and Google Photos will remove device copies of your backed up photos and videos.

Or Google Photos can keep track of your phone’s storage space for you. Get notified when your phone is running low on space, and easily remove the device copies of backed up photos older than 30 days right from the Assistant.

All your photos and videos will still be accessible when you’re connected, both in the app and on the web at photos.google.com.

So take more photos and videos. And stop worrying about filling up your phone in the process.

This update is rolling out now on Android and coming soon to iOS.

Check for the update (v1.9) in the Play Store: goo.gl/55OnIr

Google Photos update – now with face grouping in more countries, people hiding, and more

Rolling out on all platforms now, here’s what’s new:

• Now in more countries: Finding the perfect photo of your best friend or family member just got easier. See similar faces grouped together in Search, and privately label faces to quickly search for the person you're looking for. Tap the search button to get started.

Face grouping will be available in Latin America, Canada, the Caribbean, Australia, and New Zealand. It will also be available in parts of Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

• Hide a person from appearing under People. This also prevents events with that person from appearing in "Rediscover this day" cards in the Assistant.

• When viewing search results, pinch to zoom in and out.

• Spooky fast performance improvements and bug fixes.

These new updates are rolling out now on Android, iOS, and the web.

Get the 1.8 update for Android in the Google Play Store: https://goo.gl/55OnIr

Get the 1.5 update for iOS in the App Store: http://goo.gl/gjaHPD

And while we can’t pick out a costume for you, you can find all your old Halloween photos just by searching for “Halloween” in the app.

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.
