Google Photos is introducing new AI-powered features that will revolutionize how you organize and categorize your photos. By leveraging the power of Artificial Intelligence, Google aims to declutter your Photos gallery and make it easier for you to find specific images.
One of the exciting new features is called Photo Stacks. With this feature, Google’s AI technology will identify the best photo from a set of pictures taken together and select it as the top pick of the stack. This means that multiple photos capturing the same moment will be hidden behind the top pick, reducing clutter in your gallery. You can also manually choose your preferred photo as the top pick or disable the feature altogether.
The Photo Stacks feature works by analyzing visual similarities between photos taken in close succession. It uses signals to group similar photos and ensures that your gallery remains organized and tidy. According to Google, about one-third of most people’s galleries consist of similar photos, so this feature will greatly reduce clutter.
Another innovative feature introduced by Google Photos is AI-powered organization for specific types of photos like screenshots and documents. The AI technology used in Google Photos can recognize screenshots, receipts, and other document types. It then categorizes them into dedicated albums for easy access. You can even set reminders on these images, allowing you to revisit them at a later date.
For example, if you take a screenshot of a concert ticket with a QR code for entry, you can instruct Google Photos to remind you closer to the concert date and time. This ensures that important documents are not forgotten or buried within your gallery.
In addition to categorization, Google Photos gives you the option to automatically archive screenshots and documents after 30 days. While they are removed from your main gallery, they remain accessible from their dedicated albums for future reference.
Both these exciting features are rolling out today for Android and iOS users of Google Photos. By leveraging powerful AI technologies, Google aims to enhance how we organize our photos, making it easier to find and share memorable moments. Say goodbye to cluttered galleries and enjoy a more streamlined photo management experience with Google Photos.
