Google Photos rolls out AI-powered suggested sharing and shared libraries

By : |June 29, 2017 0

Following the announcement made at I/O 2017 last month, Google Photos is starting to roll out Suggested Sharing and Shared Libraries feature.

In a blog post, James Gallagher, Engineering Director, Google Photos wrote, “To help you share and receive more of the meaningful moments in your life, we’re rolling out suggested sharing and shared libraries this week, which we recently announced at Google I/O.”

The new feature dubbed ‘Suggested Sharing’ uses machine learning and facial recognition technology to look over your Google Photos library and identify images that your friends and family may enjoy based on faces, location, or other bits of context. The section that is now elevated to the left-hand navigation column on the web allows users to review and edit suggestions and then send them to those people in an instant, including to users who don’t use Google Photos themselves over email or text.


Google’s machine learning also helps gathers photos based on events, like weddings, camping trip or family gathering, when providing suggestions. This results in one shared album rather than photos scattered in different phones and location.

Google has added one more feature dubbed ‘Shared Libraries’ which allows two or more users to link their photo libraries together. Once shared, a user can send every picture they take to the Shared Library instantly.

The updates are rolling out now on iOS, Android and the web, and will likely complete by the end of this week or next.
