Google has updated its Photos app which brings shared photo albums, bug-fixes and more. As the name suggests, the feature allows users to share photos with other users via a link. The recipients can then open the link directly on their photos app or in the web browser. They can then open the link and click on join the album.
Users can also add their photos to the library and contribute to the same album. When they add photos to your album, the Photos app will also notify you about the same. The update is now rolling out to Android, iOS and web.
The standalone app was launched earlier this year at Google I/O. It brings new editing tools, enhanced search functionality and unlimited storage for videos and photos on cloud, among others.
The previous update to the Google Photos app also allows you to reclaim internal storage space on your smartphone. After uploading photos to cloud, users can delete them from internal storage and from the SD-card. This also helps to ensure that there are no duplicates. The app also prompts to confirm before deleting, thus ensuring that you don t accidentally delete photos from their handset.
