Google Photos Unfold Another Unique Widget for its Android Users Coined as “Memories”

The feature was announced during Google’s big event, Google I/O 2021.

Many notable widgets are being revitalized in android operating systems these days. Test and trial go on regarding application, layouts, templates, and widgets as the competitive marketing are going sky high. There is an upcoming and tremendous increase in developing software, applications, and widgets that are more user-friendly, engaging, and add to the healthy user experience. Google continuously concerns about the subject matter and keeps updating its high-tech development for users.

Recently, the google photos application has launched another remarkable feature for its android users. The feature was already enabled for iOS users, and now many android gadgets owners can also utilize it. The feature is the unique widget called “memories,” and it is available on the home screen of the google photos application. Android users could spot the code in the 5.49 version on their android software, but still, it was not enabled until last month. 

Telegram channel, typically known as “Google pixels,” has reported that “the Your Memories widget has rolled out to some Android users with the Google Photos app v5.52.0.0387241369”.

The photo storage application has made it very feasible and engaging for the audience to locate their old memories in the widget. Android users will now be able to locate the memories on their photos tab, and this can be placed as a widget on top of their home screen. By clicking on the widget selector, you will be able to place your memories on the home screen.

The original size of the “memories” widget google appears on the home screen as 2×2 by default, but it can be reshaped and resized depending upon the users’ preferences. If users want to resize the widget, they can simply long-press the widget. A stretching pointer will appear upon pressing long, allowing the user to drag it according to their preferred size or shape.

The widget will enable you to enjoy the old days by resurfacing your album systematically. The unique widget represents a sequence of auto-generated photos. Google collects these photos from the album and assembles them to recall your memories. With the widget scrolling through the whole photos application, albums and searches are no longer needed since users will be quickly redirected to their old days. Currently, Android users will only be able to “memories” that include “a year ago” and “this week.”

Google claims that shortly they will also launch a new feature to the widget. It stated, “New types of Memories such as Best of Month Memories, Trip highlights, celebrations, etc., will soon be added.”

With The enhanced features, users will be enabled to look back into time more often. The memories will be recalled, including the best highlight, your important events, and the most exciting memories in your photos collection. Moreover, machine learning will also enable the user to hide particular humans, collections, or things you might not encounter often. In the near future, your photo search and spot experience will be more enhanced once the new features are inculcated in the “memories” widget.

They claimed in this regard; “If you don’t want to relive certain memories, Photos will make it easier to hide certain people or periods so that they don’t surface on your Memories again.”

While stating all the latest news and announcements from Google, Xda-developers.com comprehended the new cinematic feature as well. The upcoming feature may also introduce computational photographic techniques. By enabling this feature, a more fulfilling and lively cinematic effect will be added to your photos.
