Memories is one of the most popular features on Facebook. Everyday, Facebook sends ‘On This Day’ notifications to millions of Facebook users around the world. Tapping these notifications will display the personalized Memories to users. Memories may include Facebook posts, major life events, your marriage anniversary, posts on Facebook that you were tagged in and more. Today, Google announced the new Memories feature in Google Photos. Through this feature, you can see photos and videos from previous years. In addition to copying the memories idea, Google is copying the Stories UI format as well. The Memories in Google Photos will be displayed at the top of your gallery, similar to how you experience Stories in Instagram and Messenger.
Google uses machine learning to curate what appears in Memories, so you don’t have to parse through many duplicate shots, and you can instead reflect on the best ones, where the photos have good quality and all the kids are smiling.
Google also provides the option to turn this feature off. You can also share the photos that appear in Memories with others.
Today, Google Photos is bringing the ability to order individual photo prints. You can order 4×6 photo prints directly from Google Photos and pick them up same day at CVS Pharmacy or Walmart, at over 11,000 locations with print centers across the U.S. You can now also order canvas prints from Google Photos in the U.S.
Canvas prints start at $19.99 and come in three different sizes, 8×8, 12×14, and 16×20, so they work for all types of spaces.
