Facebook is quite good in presenting your photos in a video and captures almost all important events of the year. Google is not much popular in presenting your photos in a video format yet. This year, Goole Photos is celebrating with a new video titled “Smiles of 2017” in which the app automatically finds your selfies from the past year and presents some of your favorite moments.
Google Photos is primarily a backup of your photos that you can store on Google drive online. Other than free cloud backups, another feature has been introduced by the app which automatically creates collages and movies using the pictures captured by your smartphone. The clip appears to be popping up in the Assistant section of the Google Photos app. Many sources reported that the seasonal film which is based on moments of the year 2017 will be rolling out to most of the users, globally. To confirm if you have received it or not, open the Google Photos app and tap the Assistant icon at the bottom of your screen.
The ‘Smiles of 2017’ video combines a number of your backed up selected photos. It then adds an elevator song in the background and shows slow transitions between everything. The clip contains your memories in a length that varies between 40 to 60 seconds. Although most of the regions are yet to receive ‘Smiles of 2017’ on their devices, still it should be available more widely soon to those that meet the upload criteria to generate the video.
The tech giant is applying new machine learning algorithms to its application. Using the machine learning tools, Google Photos can suggest people with whom you might want to share your photos or memories, in which they also appear themselves. This is a pretty good way to look back at your year and remember the beautiful memories you made last year. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
