Google has confirmed a new feature for its Photos app. In a tweet sent out through Google Photos' official Twitter account, the company has confirmed that the app will now suggest photos to archive.
New! See suggestions for photos to archive, so you can move photos you donít want to see in your main library. See ya later, receipts 👋 pic.twitter.com/RpjBquGN5Gó Google Photos (@googlephotos) June 2, 2017
This comes just over a week after the Archive feature started rolling out, allowing you to hide certain images from the main view of the app. So in that context, the new suggestions feature is kind of an enhancement, automatically detecting and suggesting photos that you might want to Archive.
These suggestions pop up in the form of a card in the Assistant tab inside the app. The feature has started rolling out, but it may take time reach every device.
this happened to me this morning actually, about 5 hours before I read this. it saved me trawling through my photos. now all (probably not all really, but most) of my receipts are safely archived away and not annoying me in the main gallery
Now that's a genuinely useful feature!
Quite interesting. So well done to Google so far, then we have to see if in the real life it will be really practical, etc.
