Google is updating Photos to make it easier for you to share your pictures with pals. A new selective sharing function – lurking in a new Sharing tab in-app – will automatically suggest photos for you to share with your pals, creating its recommendations based on where you were, who you were with, and your frequent image-sharing contacts. Once you share some pictures with a pal, they’re get a notification that opens the Photos app on their phone, where they’ll find a prompt to share photos of their own in return if they were at the same event.
Photo is also adding shared libraries, which lets you synchronize your albums with others. And it’s one of the flagship apps for Google Lens, which can be used to identify items and objects in your snapshots and will offer actionable action prompts.
