• Google is also adding a new 'Subtle Zoom' effect to still photos to make them appear more dynamic, thus bringing movement to your memories. And by next month, Google will start adding instrumental music to some Memories.

• Cinematic Memories will now appear in full-screen mode to give an immersive feel to your pictures and videos. According to Google, "Cinematic Memories will also have music, making your photos feel a little more like a movie."

• Google is also out a new feature called Styles. Inspired by old scrapbooks, the feature will automatically add graphic art to your memories to make them pop. Styles will have several designs at launch, including limited-time styles from featured artists Shantell Martin and Lisa Congdon made just for Google Photos.

• Another handy feature coming your way is the ability to share entire Memories with your friends and family. The feature will make it possible to share Memories in just a few taps on Android devices and the shared content will be viewable right from Google Photos on any device. The new Memories Share feature will soon be made available to iOS and the web.

Google Photos Update- New Collage Editor

Lastly, the new Collage Editor will make it possible to create shareable collages with family and friends. Similar to any collage app, you would first need to pick your photos, select your design (including styles from featured artists), and rearrange the layout (drag-and-drop controls) to create new collages.

The new editor will allow basic photo editing right from the collage editor with features such as brightness or contrast touch-ups, filters, and more. You will also have access to more than 30 additional designs if you are a Google One member or own a Google Pixel device.

Overall, the new update is significant, adding several useful features and photo/video editing tools to the Google Photos app. If you haven't already done so, go to the Play Store and install the new update.
