Google Photos For Android Updated

Android / Mobile / Photography
Google Photos Albums

Google Photos has been the default photo application for Android devices since it was released two months ago and it is getting even better with its new update. Google Photos version 1.2 is going to bring more customization to the table to be able to make your photo app on your Android device your own.

You will now have the ability to change cover photos on the different albums to one of your choice. If you have a food album and you really want a picture of that awesome cheeseburger you had from Hodad’s in San Diego to be the cover for the album you can make that happen now. You will also be able to add and remove photos from an album from the same screen now.

Another added feature is that you will be able to add, edit, and view descriptions for individual photos in the app now. So if you want to remember when and where you had that awesome hamburger from Hodad’s you can check it right from the app now. It will even give you a map of where the photo was taken if you have location enabled for photos.

They also added the ability to select all photos from a day if you long press on the date header and you can now swipe down from the search bar to leave the search. Aside from those big updates there are also bug fixes and performance improvements as always listed in updates.

With this update, you should be able to make your albums feel a little more personal. It is also a nice touch to see where the photo was taken and what time and day if you are looking for something specific. You can head over to the Google Play Store to see if you can update your own Google Photos already as the update is in the process of being rolled out.
