Google Photos now get new Sharing Options with 500 million users

    The Google Photos now has new users more than what they had and not only that, they now has new ways to share the photos! Approximately, an average 500 million people using Google Photos currently!

    This was announced at the Google I/O 2017, that it’s making Photos more social with Suggested Sharing and shared libraries.

    Suggested Sharing will prompt you to share photos based on the people in them. Photos will have a new Sharing tab, and will send notifications prompting users to share photos.

    Anil Sabharwal, Vice President of Photos, also showed how the users who receive the shared photos will also be prompted to share related photos of their own based on shared faces or location.

    With our new sharing suggestions, you can finally share and receive all the photos that really matter to you, without the work. Using our machine learning technology, Google Photos will not only remind you to share—it will automatically select the right photos, and even suggest who you should send them to based on who was in the photos.

    Just tap send, and your friends and family will see all your photos, and get a reminder to add theirs too. Now all the photos of that birthday dinner or weekend trip are in one place, including—and especially—the photos you didn’t take.

    You’ll see all your sharing activities and these suggestions in our new Sharing tab, which will be rolling out on Android, iOS and web in the coming weeks.

    Google Photos is getting shared libraries, meaning photos from two different phones can be automatically saved to a common photo pool.

    And Photo Books, once you select the photos, Google Photos will find the best shots for you—removing duplicates and poor quality images. All that’s left for you to do is make a few tweaks and place your order.

    Photo books are rolling out today in the U.S. on web, and on Android and iOS next week, starting at just $9.99 for a 20-page softcover book and $19.99 for a hardcover book. We’ll bring photo books to more countries soon.
