Going on holiday is great, the somewhat tedious task afterwards of organising the sometimes hundreds or even thousands of photos you took while on holidays isn’t. Thankfully Google has been taking a swing at this task in the past few years, organising photos uploaded to Google+ Photos into ‘Stories’ for you with a nice layout and featured pictures. Now these stories are showing up in Google Now.

As you can see from the card above it’s a fairly simple notification with the Photo Story having to be loaded in the Photos app on your Android phone, or through Google+. You can edit your stories on your phone/tablet or on a desktop to refine them, but for the most part the stories are pretty good.

You can learn more about how to get a Google+ story going, and edit it on the Google Support Page, and next time you take a trip share your Google+ Story with us.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I quite like the Stories on Google+. I auto-backup my pics to Google, so it’s nice to be able to view them in a ‘story’, rather than a big bunch of thumbnails.
