The Photo book feature on Google Photos is based on machine learning and artificial intelligence much like most of the other features announced by Google at this year’s developer conference. The app uses algorithms to sort pictures in your photo library based on people, places, or even objects featured in them. Now, you can select a group of photos from the library that you would want to get printed. With Google’s machine learning process, the app automatically selects the best photos out of the selection to print.
Google Photo users in the US can get a printed softcover or hardcover book of best photos from their library. A softcover photo book is priced at $9.99 (approximately Rs 650) and a hardcover photo book with 20 leafs is priced at $19.99 (approximately Rs 1,300). One can pay additional charges for every extra page. The feature to order a physical photo book is now available in latest app version listed on App Store and Google Play. Notably, the feature was already available on the web version of Google Photos. ALS O READ: Google Photos now lets you keep your nudes safe, here s how
