It seems like Google has decided to end the year in a sweet mode. The search-giant reportedly completed this year by showcasing short videos to users through it’s the official Photos app. The system is designed to create customized videos, consisting of ‘smiles of 2017’ images of the user. These pictures are taken from the collection that comes stored in the Cloud. The feature makes use of the collage style to portray different photos to its users. As noted by Gadgets Now, the pictures only consist of smiling poses of the owner.
This feature was first spotted and spoken publicly about by Android Police. It is still not sure whether Google plans on rolling this feature out to all users. Smartphone users can check their official Google Photos app to check whether or not they have received the new feature.
You can just tap the ‘Assistant’ option provided at the bottom to see if the video is already created for you. Normally, if the video is created for you, then you will automatically receive a notification regarding the same. The video will be readily made available to you in the ‘Assistant’ tab section of the app and official website.
The latest feature makes use of Google’s proprietary machine learning service to create pictorial videos for smartphone owners. The machine learning service is taught to identify smiles in the wide variety of pictures stored in the Cloud. Google rolled out a similar feature sometime last year in the form of, ‘Smiles.’
The firm recently also announced the changes it plans on making to its Drive’s navigation bar. This particular feature is scheduled to arrive next year. In other words, users will no longer be able to access, Google Photos directly from the Drive. This could end up leading to great inconvenience for smartphone users.
