Taking to microblogging site Twitter, Google product lead, David Lieb, on account of a brief downtime has hinted about new features in Google photos. David humorously asked about popular customer expectations such as bug fixes and other features, besides additional performance enhancements. The veteran affirmed availability of certain web features in smartphone applications. To begin with, users can henceforth directly search via their smartphones recent uploaded pictures.
Additionally, Google photos will also allow timestamps edits on Android which are already functional on web as well as iOS. Like iOs and web features Android users will also be able to directly delete undesired photos within the album. However, the above mentioned feature refurbishments are still underway and in pipeline stage. Hence it is still long for users to enjoy the same. Other similar feature additions such as map addition, selecting duplicates as well as photo descriptions during slide show viewing are yet to be discussed. All said, such vital cues coming in from high profile Google personnel certainly renders possibility hints.
An interesting feature that Lieb hinted was coming is manual face tagging. This will not only hel in photo removal in cases of wrong tags but will also help in photo addition in case Photos has not selected any. Additionally, the availability of an editing feature specific to smartphones is editing a photo in real time despite it being clicked in the past. A path breaking feature is the unique pet photo sharing with partners via partner libraries. With this addition Google Photos will instantly share all pet pictures with users' respective partners.
Yet another concern that has startled most Samsung phone users is that all screenshots taken on Samsung phones get auto-saved in DCIM folder and hence they automatically get uploaded on Google Photos just like photos taken from phone cameras. With upcoming feature up-gradation the issue is likely to get resolved.
