Google Photos updates with easier, faster navigation

nav-update

Google is releasing an update to Google Photos today which features improved design and performance enhancements. We love Google Photos, it’s perhaps one of the most seamless photo management and backup solutions, and in our recent trip to MWC 2016, it was extremely helpful in getting our photos up into the cloud for use by others.

The new features include a bottom navigation bar that allows users to quickly move between the Assistant, Photos and Albums view. Albums view? Yes, Google is replacing Collections with Albums, and the pane features a new scrolling carousel design with easy access to shared albums, people, places, things, animations, collages, movies and device folders.

The update is coming to Android today (in the form of version 1.15 on the Play Store), and to iOS soon.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were “transportable” and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia’s most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
