Google Photos already has a share feature. It lets you share photos and videos with your friends and family members. The process required people to open the app and create an album for a single photo and share the link. But now, Google has revamped the share option and introduced a new way to share the photos via direct message.
The new method will let users choose a photo/video, then tap on the Share button followed by a tap on contacts that have Google Photos installed on their phone. Users can even like photos or comment in the conversation. They can even save those photos or videos to their gallery.
“You’ve always been able to share individual photos through the app by creating an album for a single photo and sharing the link. But we’ve heard from some of you that this could be a simpler experience, so now when you share one-off photos and videos, you’ll have the option to add them to an ongoing, private conversation in the app,” Google wrote in a blog.
The feature will start rolling out in the coming weeks.
