It also has AI technology, where it can recognize the person by their face. Below is the list of new things that you can do with Google Photos.
This feature uses the Google's artificial intelligence to pick best photos, finding out who is in the photo and then suggest you to share them. In case, if you've shared pictures with another user, the app will identify related photos. Meanwhile, you also share the photos through a link to a webpage, in the case of non-Google Photo users.
This allows you to share the photos with your loved and dear ones. You can also share the photos based on the people tagged in them, which comes very handy after functions or vacations.

The AI will suggest you the best photos and offer them as a book. You can place an order at prices starting at $19.99 (Rs. 1,295 approx) for a hardcover and $9.99 (Rs. 647) for soft.
