Google Photos Simplifies Sharing

...

Google Photos is making it easier to share snapshots with multiple people.

Simply choose which images to send, tap "share," and select who you want to receive them. The app takes care of the rest. Friends using Google Photos will get a notification; everyone else will get a link via SMS or email, depending on the method of delivery.

"So you can spend less time toggling from app to app to share photos—dealing with failed texts or email attachment limits along the way—and more time enjoying life's photo-worthy moments," Google Photos Product Lead David Lieb wrote in a blog post.

The team also announced a twist on automatic movie creations: Alongside clips built from recently uploaded pictures, Google Photos is making new videos based on creative concepts. And they're not limited to most recent images.

These are "the kinds of movies you might make yourself, if you just had the time," Lieb explained.

More automatic-video concepts—commemorating summertime and formal events like weddings—are rolling out this week, and in the future.

All updates are available today across Android, iOS, and the Web.

Google Play Books on Monday, meanwhile, launched Discover, a new way for Android app users to find reading material by browsing reviews, news, lists, videos, and more. Short on time? Check out the Weekly Highlights digest for a condensed version of the latest book gossip.

Plus, Discover automatically identifies titles from articles you've skimmed or videos you've watched, providing easy access to read a free sample or buy the book.

Available only in the US, the feature is coming soon to iOS.

This week's launch comes with the new Google Play Editorial, which offers readers original articles, including author interviews, essays by favorite writers, and book selections from leading literary voices.
