Google Photos now has a collage editor and updated Memories

Google has announced a massive update to Google Photos. It brings a couple of new features and a number of modifications to the existing Memories mechanics.

With the Memories update, users will be able to watch more videos, including snippets from longer clips, which the service will automatically select and trim for them. Static photos will be displayed at a slight magnification. In October, the service will learn how to add instrumental music to some memories. If desired, users can hide images of specific people or time periods from memories. In addition, the following options will appear:

  • Movie Photo – A mode that will turn a selection of still photos into videos using 3D effects.
  • Styles – Add graphics from professional artists to enhance the memory.
  • “Share a memory” – the ability to send a link to a memory to friends or family so that they can view it from any device.

At the same time, new editing capabilities were announced:

  • Collage editor allows you to change the frame styles and position of photos.
  • Right in the editor, you can adjust the brightness and contrast of your shots, or apply filters.
  • Google One subscribers and Pixel users will be able to apply portrait lighting or HDR effects, as well as get access to 30 additional styles.

The Google Photos update has already started rolling out to iOS and Android and will roll out to all users in the coming weeks. The only exception is the Share Memories feature, which is only available on Android for now, but will be coming to iOS and web at a later date.
