Microsoft is pushing out an update to the Photos app for Windows 10, taking it to version  2017.39081.15820.0.

The update brings 3 new features – the ability to search by tags, the Story Remix feature, which creates a video from your pictures and media automatically and a video editor, which lets you do the same, but manually.

The features have been under extensive testing by Insiders, and after being in the Release Ring a few days ago, now appear to be rolling out to regular users on the Creators Update.

Despite testing the Remix feature does not seem to work too well yet, not offering any manual control at the minute, and on my PC appearing to crash if you click on the edit button.

The video editor appears more complete but lacks the 3D features and special effects Microsoft is still working on.

The new software features can be found by checking the store for new updates.
