Although most of the new features of Google Photos are focused on its app, since it allows users to edit and organize their photos directly from the mobile gallery, it does not neglect its web version either.
So if you resort to the web to take a look at your Google Photos library, upload content from your PC, or organize your albums, you will find two new sections.
New options for managing your photos in Google Photos
Google Photos is adding two new options on the web that will make it easier to find certain content.
One of them is the “Explore” tab that brings together most of the Google Photos categories to organize all the photos and videos we upload to the platform. On the one hand, you will find what is related to your activity such as content marked as a favorite or recently added to Google Photos.
And on the other hand, all the creations you have saved, like collages, videos, animations, etc. And if you simply want to search by category, then you’ll want to use this section because it filters your content by content type… screenshots, videos, images added with PhotoScan, and so on.
This tab also shows sections based on your content in Google Photos, for example, groups of photos taking into account the places you visited, people that appear in the photos, and even things that Google’s algorithm detects.
So you will see that this new “Explore” tab that is added in the web version offers you the same as the “Search” section of the Google Photos app. So if you prefer to organize your photos and videos from the web, you will benefit from this new option.
And a plus that adds with this update to the web version is that a shortcut to go to “Favorites” is added. These changes to Google Photos are already being rolled out to all users.
