Google Photos has been redesigned, making it easier for users to find and share photos. In a blog post, Google said it will start rolling out new updates to its popular service to make it easier for users to “sort your albums, import photos and videos you’ve saved elsewhere, share your content view and find screenshots “
The new feature includes a library that will have more options and make it easier for users to find their photos and albums. The Library tab now gets an updated layout to display a grid or list depending on user preferences. The new design allows users to quickly filter by type (albums, shared albums, favorites, folders on the device and then sort their photos.
Google Photos also adds a new ‘Import Photos’ section next to locked folder, utilities, archive and trash option. This will allow users to “easily copy photos from other services, digitize photos (or videos and movies) or move photos from a camera,” the blog adds.
The redesign also includes sections for sharing partners, shared albums and chats. Google says “with more defined sections, it’s easier to find, view and manage your shared photos and videos, and stay up to date so you never miss the last snap.” The changes roll out to Android this week and are coming soon to iOS.
The new update will make it easier for users to find their most recent screenshots, even if you choose not to back them up. Google will add a shortcut key that will appear at the top of your main photo frame to bring you directly to it.
