Google Photos Soon To Receive Some Long Awaited Features
While opening a dialogue box for his users on Twitter when he was at leisure, David Lieb, the director of the Google Photos, hinted at some of the features that the app is going to launch soon.
Hi Twitter! It’s no-meetings week at Googlephotos and I’ve got a couple hours free. Tell me what you want to see next from Google Photos! New features, bug fixes, performance improvements, you name it. (No promises but very open minds!)
He said this, inviting all the users on Twitter with their feedback and suggestions.
The conversation continued for many hours in a familiar environment that the users were provided by Lieb, and users of all the operating systems put forward the desired features that they wanted to be added in the app. Many of the features are working and feasible on iOS and Windows, but Android operating system, which is the world’s most popular operating system, lacks in them; and users’ suggestions with their light criticism made him agree on adding them to the app soon as well.
One of the features that stands out among all is the addition of Manual Face Tagging, through which, users will be able to tag faces that it doesn’t recognize. Users will have the convenience of tagging faces in the photos themselves. Earlier, however, it wasn’t possible for them, although the ability to remove incorrect tags, and having photos automatically tagged were there for all the operating systems.
In addition to this, users would also have the option of searching their recently uploaded photos. The option is available for the web version, but other operating systems do not facilitate it. Moreover, the possibility of changing the date and time stamps for photos and videos, which has already been accessible with iOS and Web versions, will also be provided to its Android users correspondingly. In responding to the query of one of the users, Lieb also exposed that the users of the android operating system will be able to delete photos while rummaging through their respective albums very soon, as their team is working on it.
Google Photos already allows its users to create an album for sharing shots, but the unavailability of sharing the pictures of their pets is what some of its users do not really like. Lieb, however, made it clear that for those who love the company of pets will also see this breach soon.
Ok folks, went way over my budgeted time, but thank you so much for all the ideas and suggestions. Feel free to keep them coming on this thread, but I won’t be able to respond/interact on all of them. Maybe you’ll see some soon. Feedback is a gift. Thx for your gifts.
The note, with which, the product lead David Lieb closed the conversation, leaving his users optimistic.
The estimated time for the coming of these options is not known, but Lieb’s concluding remarks has given the hope to the users of Google Photos that many of these features are likely to be included in the upcoming versions of the app shortly.
