In what already is a great app for browsing photos, the search engine giants have now introduced Airplay Support for iOS users in Google Photos. With Google Photos 2.14.0 users will be able to experience their photos in larger screens rather than the limiting themselves to smaller mobile phones.
The updated app is now available in App Store and will allow users to project their favorite photos and videos directly onto their Apple TV. The update also brings in performance improvements. Google added video stabilization feature in their 2.13 update last month. When tested the feature worked like a charm and we hope Google keeps up the same with this update. This update will open doors to a lot more utility for iOS users in the coming days.
Google acknowledged the “People folder” in Google Photos and announced they are working on a patch. They also said they have no plans to kill the feature as of now. This folder categorizes photos into folders and identifying the faces in photos for easier browsing. While some users were still able to see it, with several photos missing, the folder altogether vanished for others.
Over the years Google Photos has developed from just an App. Now a community and great place to keep and share photos for everyone. Since it’s debut in 2015 Google Photos has introduced some powerful features including image stabilization, visual search, content-aware-filters. The newest airplay seems to be one of them, although what took them to get this feature going is unclear.
Google riffs on Apple’s product offerings, and most recently debuted an app called Motion Stills that turns Live Photos into GIF and short movies. The newest Google Photos version is a 165 MB download from the Apple Store. Google is shown mastery in developing apps for Apple and this does’nt seem anything new.
