Scrolling down, you will find specific search terms in the form of categories such as Screenshots, Selfies and Videos among other things. There users will also be able to get easy access to recently uploaded photos in there.
The report claims that the update will be rolled out as a server-side update, which means not every Google Photos users will get the feature instantly. Instead, it will be rolled out slowly.
Apart from this, the report also mentions that the company has added deeper integration for Google Lens into its photos app. The company will be adding more tools into the Lens integration, like translate, copy, search and transfer it to a Google-connected PC. It states that having all these features at one place would help the user to perform tasks faster and not bounce between multiple apps.
