Google is giving itsGoogle Photos app a significant redesign
[https://www.blog.google/products/photos/redesigned-google-photos]this week to
commemorate its five-year anniversary, complete with a fresh, new icon and a
sleeker interface.

There?s a lot more to it though. The new app has a new layout with three tabs at
the bottom of the screen. These are, namely, Photos, Search, and Library. Photos
displays all of your photos and videos, and with this redesign, thumbnails are
larger, there are auto-playing videos, and there?s less white space between each
item.

feature, which lets you revisit memories from past years, and it now features
new types of memories, such as ?the best pics of you and your friends and
family? trips, and highlights from the past week. Plus, the ?For you? tab, which
features Google?s automatic creations ? such as movies, collages, and more ? has
been moved into Memories, too. You?ll be able to hide specific people and time
periods from Memories if you don?t want to see revisit them, though.

> Today we?re rolling out a new, simplified Google Photos experience to help you
find and relive your memories.

you?re looking for. it lets you search for people, places, and things, but more
notably, there?s a new map view. Google says this is one of the most requested
features for Google Photos, and it lets users view an interactive map where they
can find their photos attached to their respective locations, assuming they have
location data associated with them.

Finally, the Library tab features your folders, albums, and trash, so you can
manage your photo library more easily. Additionally, the Print Store is
available in this tab for users in the U.S., EU, and Canada, so they can get
printed products that feature their own photos.

The new Google Photos redesign is rolling out starting today but it could take a
while for everyone to see an updated interface.
