On Tuesday, the product management asked Google Photos David Lieb Twitter users, what features they want and what errors they experience. He also shared some upcoming improvements on the platform.
One of the most sought after features was the ability to mark a face manually, and to the users' satisfaction, Lieb confirmed that it was on the company's task list.
Another feature mentioned by Lieb has been running out already, so some users might have it, the ability to search for newly added images. While it sounds like a weird feature, it's primarily for users who may upload photos from their camera that are timed from the past so they don't appear at the top of the photo page. This feature has been available on the web version of the platform since last August.
Another data-related change that Lieb said comes to Android is the ability to edit timestamps. Users can already do this on the Internet and the iOS versions of photos.
The "Partner Sharing" feature, which allows users to share photos of specific people with their partner, will soon be extended to include photographs of pets.
Another option found in Photos for web, but not the Android app is the ability to delete photos when you look at them inside an album. Currently, you can only remove pictures from the albums rather than actually deleting them from your library.
A Samsung-specific feature requested by users is that the Photos app recognizes screenshots on Galaxy phones. Currently, you save the image in a DCIM folder instead of the Images folder when you take a screenshot on a Samsung phone, resulting in the screens being uploaded to Photos as a picture taken with the camera according to Android Police .
Android Police also rounded off a few other features that users requested, but were not confirmed by Lieb.
- Adding pictures to a photo card inside the app so users can easily see where they took the photos.
- An easy way to remove duplicate images.
- The ability to choose whether to upload your photos to Google Drive.
- The ability to print photos from your phone.
- Verifies that you are editing Google Assistant creations like & # 39; Stylized photos & # 39; or & # 39; Color Pop & # 39; images
- Ability to back up images without those displayed on the & # 39; Photos & # 39 ;.
