Google is making it easy to share everyday moments via adding a private messaging feature. Earlier, to share individual photos via the app, one needs to create an album for a single photo and share the link. Now when you share one-off photos and videos, you will have the option to add them to an ongoing, private conversation in the app.
"This gives you a place to find the moments you've shared with your friends and family and keep the conversation going," Janvi Shah, Product Manager for Google Photos, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.
Google This feature is not designed to replace chat apps people already use, but it hopes to improve sharing with friends and family in Google Photos.
"You can like photos or comments in the conversation, and you can easily save these photos or videos to your own gallery," Shah said.
"It's rolling out over the next week and, as always, you can share these photos with your friends and family across all platforms – Android, iOS, and the Web – without loss in image quality from the photos you backed up, "she added.
Earlier, Google had rolled out a new tagging feature that users would be able to manually add to the faces of many of its algorithms.
