    You can expect the family plan later this year

    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.

    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

    If someone else wants to join the album, they can hit a "join" button at the bottom of the album screen

    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.

  • Richard Nieva 9/29/2015 4:43:40 PM

  • 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.
