Google put a lot of emphasis on its I / O on the importance of artificial intelligence in Google Photos. What started as a simple gallery with cloud storage, is becoming the most photographic tool ever created , and that is that it allows functions that not even the professional editing programs manage to do.
Some novelties such as the recognition of documents for scanning, the archiving of screenshots and the colorization of images were key points in the presentation, and it seems that little by little they are reaching the devices .
As we can read in, a new version of Google Photos is now available , and progressively arriving at the different devices. As always, Google Pixel are the first to enjoy the news, although in our case, and after updating the app, we have not been able to enjoy any of the three great news of Google Photos, which we list below.
Pop Color : identification by AI of the main subject, to convert the background to black and white, or to color the image if it was already black and white
Suggestions for archiving screenshots
Scanning of documents
In our Google Pixel 2 XL units we have not been able to enjoy these new features, even installing the APK manually, although we assume that although the version is updated, the functions arrive progressively , as it has always been. However, it is good news to know that the deployment of the functions has already started, and will soon reach the devices.
As always, the rest of the devices are not Pixel, except perhaps those that collaborate directly with Google, they will have to wait a few months to receive these options , and that is when you pay a Pixel you do not pay only support, but the exclusivity of having the most interesting functions before anyone else.
