Google has been putting a lot of effort lately in developing new features for its Photos app. The company wants to give its customers the tools to create better content while fully making use of camera lens capabilities. Especially after it recently decided to end free backups.
Now, Google announced three new updates for the Photos app, including a brand new feature, called Cinematic photo. Here’s how the new feature works: Google uses machine learning to artificially create depth within a photo, using a smooth “camera” movement to create a cinematic pan of that photo. Have a look below:
After the new feature is applied to an image, the new Cinematic photo will then be saved as a video on your device and can be shared anywhere videos are supported.
For now, Google will choose what images can become Cinematic photos, and it’s yet unclear if it will allow users to pick which photos to turn into Cinematic ones.
At the same time, Google also rolled out some new collage templates to Google Photos and brought some new improvements to the Memories feature.
Google recently rolled out a series of updates improving the usability of its Photos app. Most recently the tech giant introduced a changing wallpaper feature, introduced Google One membership, and started allowing users to export their Facebook photos and videos to the Google Photos app.
