Google Photos has a new stories-style 'Memories' feature

CVS Lets Customers Order

CVS Lets Customers Order

The first thing Google stresses is that while this feature resembles stories that you'll see on social media sites, these images are your personal media, presented privately.

"Memories" seems like it will continue to follow the cadence of the "rediscover this day" feature - which is to say, it won't remind you of every photo you've taken on every single day.

Tap Photo prints, then tap Order prints.

Google uses machine learning to curate what appears in Memories, so you don't have to parse through many duplicate shots, and you can instead reflect on the best ones, where the photos have good quality and all the kids are smiling.

Google Photos already had a nostalgia-inducing "on this day" feature that lives under the "Assistant" tab. This new feature sounds similar, but it'll encompass multiple years and will be right up front in your photos area.

Sam Ficken Expected To Sign With New York Jets
Ficken now becomes the fourth kicker the Jets have had since the departure of 2018 Pro Bowler Jason Myers. Chandler Catanzaro struggled in August before abruptly retiring and Taylor Bertolet wasn't much better.

Google also provides the option to turn this feature off. It sounds like it'll be similar to Instagram direct messages, where you can have an ongoing, private conversation with someone and see all the pictures you've shared over time.

Directly within the Photos app are two new printing options. The search giant will also let you order photos to a CVS or Walmart not near you, allowing you to order photos for a parent or friend that they can pick up even if they're in a different city or state.

Alternatively, you can start from any horizontally-listed album.

"Memories" is also pretty useful, in that you can tune it a bit if you like, turning off certain stretches of time so that they don't show up in the feature as well as hiding people from it. Canvas prints are available in three sizes-8×8 for $20, 11×14 for $30, and 16×20 for $45-and come with either black, white, or wrap-around borders. Today, that feature is live. After launching the ability to create physical photo books in 2017, the company is now adding the option to order canvas prints of your pictures. There's no word on when the new sharing interface will roll out outside of "the coming months".

"Google Photos isn't just resting on its laurels today by making 4x6" prints available within the same day at your local pharmacy or big box store - the cloud storage service is amping up its own boutique print offerings and using artificial intelligence to help you stroll through the tons of memories you've backed up.
