When you signed out of Google at 2015, Google Photos ran out of useful functionality: tagging or ” tags “for face recognition. This feature lets you organize photos by tagging people and is back on the Google platform.
However, so far the feature is quite limited according to Android Police. You cannot simply open a photo and start identifying friends or family. Google needs to analyze the image with its algorithm and identify the facial features.
Needless to say the algorithm is far from perfect and sometimes does not recognize people. In photos where it works, you can then add and edit tags. The function is available by sliding up or down photos. The news is slowly reaching all users.
Google Photos has been implementing news
Whether it’s improvements or not, it’s subjective but Google has been adding new features to the Photos app. In addition to face tags, the company recently added Memories. This feature uses a layout similar to Instagram Stories to show older photos to users.
So instead of notifying the user to remember X, Memories will appear at the top, allowing the You decide whether to view photos that are 1 year or older. However, it is possible to hide certain periods of time or people. If you wish, you can also disable the function at all.
Google Photos remains the gallery app by default on pure Android devices. Manufacturers like Huawei and Samsung choose to have their own gallery, but Google Photos always comes pre-installed.
