An update to #GooglePhotos has introduced a nifty feature called shared albums which lets users create albums that can be accessed by others and even offer them the ability to add images or videos. This is a long overdue feature as Photos only offered the ability to share images or albums individually.
This feature has been included with the new Photos update and will be reflecting on Android, iOS as well as the web version soon. To get things rolling, all you have to do is select a bunch of photos, create an album with them, tap the “Share” button and then select “New Shared Album”.
Members of the album will get notified when someone has added a new image or video there, which should add to the social aspect of the concept as well.
Overall, it’s a very novel idea from Google and will certainly improve and enhance user experience to a great extent. Don’t lose patience if you’re not seeing the feature right away as mobile apps will require a proper update to get Shared Albums.
Do you welcome the addition of this feature on Photos? Sound off below.
