Android owners receive free phone upgrade to boost their photos – and it's perfect for your precious memories | The Sun

GOOGLE has finally rolled out its long-awaited Memories feature in its Photos app as part of a design overhaul.

The company announced a redesign of Google Photos in August.

But now US users are beginning to spot some changes, according to 9to5Google.

So it's only a matter of time before the update makes its way to UK users.

Changes include tweaks to the layout, including moving the “Google Photos” wordmark to the left, while the Print store, Sharing, and your account avatar are at the right.

The Utilities tab has been removed from the navigation rail.

While a reshuffling on the bottom bar has also made way for a new Memories tab.

For those who are familiar with Apple's Memories feature inside its built-in photos app, you'll know largely what to expect.

But for those that don't, Google's new Memories feature will curate a scrapbook-like timeline of images geo-tagged to specific locations.

It uses the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically create and organise a Memories feed, which is the perfect way to revisit the 'good ol days' digitally.

According to Google,  it lets you “easily relive, customise and share your most memorable trips, celebrations and daily moments with your loved ones.”

Users don't need to leave it all down to AI either.

You can create your own memory albums using a button that appears when you begin to scroll through the Memories tab.

From there you can select images and write a unique album title – or let AI think one up for you.

Check your app store for a Google Photos 6.54, which is the version of the app with the latest updates.
