To use this feature on iOS, you need to open a portrait image and tap on the edit button. Now, the first option that you see will be Color Pop. Next to it, there will be an Original option. Tap on the main subject of the image for the same to remain in color and turn the background into monochrome.

The second feature is depth slider. It lets you manually increase or decrease the intensity of the blur in the background provided it is a portrait shot. This will let you change the background blur or the bokeh effect of the image.

To use this feature, open a shot clicked using portrait mode and tap on edit twice to open the depth slider. This will keep the subject of the particular shot in focus and the intensity of the background blur can be adjusted manually.


Notably, these features are available on some of the premium Android smartphones already. And, the iOS users can also make use of them soon. So, have you updated your Google Photos app to try these features that give an enhanced experience?
