    "We'll keep getting music that's personalized for each of us."
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:36:00 PM
    You can expect the family plan later this year
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:36:13 PM
    Now we're moving onto Google Photos

    80 percent of those photos are latte art and sunsets* (* = not real fact, but probably is)

    "How do you easily pull new photos and videos into a single album?" asks Anil Sabharwal, lead product manager for Google Photos
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:38:47 PM
    A new Photos feature will let you do that.
  • Lynn La 9/29/2015 4:39:11 PM

    There are services similar to this -- Facebook has a Moments app that lets users upload and share photos from their own devices as well
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:39:54 PM
    Now different people can add photos to the same album, and you'll get notifications when someone adds new images. It's a bit like Facebook's Moments app

  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:40:55 PM
    If someone else wants to join the album, they can hit a "join" button at the bottom of the album screen
  • Lynn La 9/29/2015 4:41:37 PM
    Good to know Sabharwal lets his mother collaborate with his shared albums. My mother, on the other hand, may contribute several photos of her finger on the lens.
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:41:45 PM
    The feature, called Shared Albums, will be available later this year

    "With Google photos, we didn't just want to build any photo app," he says, but harness "Google's key strengths"
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:42:32 PM
    He's talking about searching within Photos now
  • James Martin 9/29/2015 4:42:38 PM
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:43:14 PM
    Now, you can label photos of people, and it will help in searches, thanks to image recognition software
  • Lynn La 9/29/2015 4:43:19 PM
    "What happens if you have 150 photos of your mom?" says Sabharwal.... more like 150 photos of my dog and other people's dogs.
  • James Martin 9/29/2015 4:43:37 PM
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:43:40 PM
    "It's now that much easier to find the photo you're looking for," he says
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:44:18 PM
    He announces Chromecast support for Google Photos
  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:45:00 PM
    "You can even cast an animated GIF" to your TV screen from your phone.
  • Lynn La 9/29/2015 4:45:07 PM
    Chromecast now supports photos so you can project your photos onto your big-screen TV. Now your constantly vacationing friend will be a tiny bit more insufferable.
