The library and sharing tabs in Google Photographs are getting a major redesign that should make it easier to find the photos and albums users are looking for.
The existing library tab layout changed from a jumble of albums, favorites, and on-device folders to a grid or list view that you may sort by category. In the meantime, the Photos sharing tab has been updated to include areas for partner sharing, shared albums, and chats.
Aside from that, Photos is gaining a fascinating feature that allows users to import photos from places outside the platform. Users will be able to import photographs from other photo storage sites, upload photos directly from a camera, and digitize actual photos and film.
If the user collection fits into Google Photos, the platform will also add a shortcut at the top of the user’s main photo grid that takes them straight to their screenshots while excluding them from the backup process as well as a carousel of contextual suggestions on Android that allows you to text, crop, search, or copy text from a screenshot.
According to Google, the improvements to the sharing tab are said to be available on Android this week and iOS soon.
