Google Photos Love Story theme 2

Google is rolling out the ability to create Love Story-themed movies with the help of its Google Photos app. Creating movies with the help of Assistant inside Google Photos is not something new. Users have long been able to create movies and photo compilations on occasions such as Father’s day or “year-in-review” as pointed out in a report by 9to5Google. Now, a new card is available in the Assistant tab in Google Photos app that allows users to create clips to celebrate “Romantic relationship”.

Once you tap this new card, you will be greeted with the creation screen which notes that this feature “works best if you have lots of photos of you and your significant other.” The report points out that once you select two people in the Google Photos app, the app shows a prompt telling you that “it may take a while”. The app does not automatically select two people, and will notify the user when it’s done. The length of the clip will depend on the number of photos and videos you have, and you can even edit the final movie if you want to make changes.

You can also add new videos and photos in the final movie along with changes in the background theme music from the available preset option. This theme joins the existing nine themes including “They Grow Up So Fast”, “Meow Movie”, “Doggie Movie”, “In Loving Memory”, “Selfie Movie”, “Smiles of 2017”, “Mother’s Day Movie”, “Father’s Day Movie”, and “Valentine’s Day Movie”.

This new theme for Google Photos movie comes at the same time when Google announced the rollout of a new “measure tool” for Google Earth. This new tool will allow users to measure the distances between two points on the map for answers to questions as ridiculous as the distance between your house and the North Pole to more sensible ones about the length to hike that you just finished on a trip.
