Google the tech giant has started rolling out the latest update for its Photos app. The latest version of the update for Google Photos is (v3.18) and as per some information from the web. The latest update is also said to bring some additional features to the app in the coming future. Also, an APK teardown of the updated Google Photos app has revealed a code which suggests that Google could be working on a smarter archiving feature among the other features.
Google has now moved the Assistant tab to the third position from the first position, with Photos and Albums tab moving a step over to the left. It is said to be useful for those users who always tap on the Assistant when trying to go back to the Photos in the bottom tabs, after all this photo gallery app primarily.
The other change which was noticed in the teardown, recommends that Google could be working to improve the Archive feature which the tech giant released last year. The new codes that have been added to the app also reveal that an updated version of the feature will allow the users to archive images by their types such as business cards, menus, newspapers, passports, receipts among others. The codes, however, have been labelled as 'suggested actions' so it isn't yet clear that the actions would do something different or not.
Google has also added some lines of follow-up code to its Like feature which was spotted first-time last month in a teardown of v3.15 of the app. Along with the added code, the 'Likes' feature is said to receive a single toggle for comments and likes, so the users will not be able to enable or disable any of the two.
The code also reveals a new Vertical panoramas label for photos, to go along with existing ones such as Slow Motion for video or RAW for images. Vertical panoramas are quite uncommon on smartphones, considering the fact that Google has decided to label them is a bit strange, however, we will keep you posted with further updates related Google Photos at Google I/O 2018, so stay tuned with us.
