Google Photos get manual face tagging
« on: July 05, 2019, 04:57:31 AM »


One of the more interesting features that Google Photos has received in recent times is automatic tagging when the app recognizes a face in one of your pictures. That's neat, but it has it's own fair share of limitations, such as the inability to manually tag people. Instead, you can only remove tags that are incorrect, but not add your own. This is changing in the near future, with Google Photos allowing users to manually tag faces in their pictures.


Yesterday, Google Photos' product lead, David Lieb, took to Twitter to source ideas and ask the community for honest feedback. The conversation was long, with many feature requests and bug reports from users, and Lieb actually got to reply to a lot of the tweets and reveal some new features coming to Photos, as spotted by Android Police.

Aside from the ability to manually manage tags, Google Photos is getting another widely-requested feature in the form of "Recent Uploads." We're sure that pretty much everyone out there who uses Google Photos has at least once experienced the annoyance of uploading an older photo, only to have it buried down under tons of newer pictures. On one hand, this makes senseóbecause photos are arranged by a chronological orderóbut on the other, it is incredibly annoying when you've just uploaded a picture and can't find it in Photos. This is going to change with the introduction of a search parameter for recently uploaded photos, which is going to allow users to surface their latest uploads quickly. The functionality is already available in the web version of Google Photos, but the app is just now being treated to it.

Hand in hand with the recently uploaded filter comes the option to edit timestamps on photos Ė something that's also been available in the web and iOS versions of Photos for years, but is yet to go live in the Android app. This is most useful when dealing with old scanned photos, which don't have any EXIF information to let Photos know how to date them. Well, they do, but it's the date you scanned them on.

These are the new features that were promised to be coming to Google Photos in the near future, but many more were discussed and are sure to be considered by the Google Photos team, at the very least.
