Recently, Google has allowed users to use and add photos to Google photos in offline mode. In the ongoing Google I/O event, which was begun on May 18, Google has announced that it will carry out a massive element for Google Photos. The new feature is named as Locked Folder, and it will be rolled out in the coming days.
In the event that we go with more details of the highlights, the name ‘Locked Folder’ itself will allow users to lock the folder by setting a passcode and hiding their selected images and videos privately. The latest feature will not show up while scrolling in the Google Photos or Gallery.
In terms of availability, as always, the feature will be rolled initially to the Google Pixel devices, and the other device will follow after them. Furthermore, the Google Pixel users will be able to access the Locked Folder and store media items directly from the camera application.
Google has likewise presented some other clever highlights separated from the Locked Folder. With the new form of Google Photos, users will be able to identify a set of three or more images or videos or any other media items which share similar colors, shapes. All of them will be combined to create a highlight in Memories.
In addition, users will likewise see the recollections of occasions they celebrate like festivals, weddings, New Year, etc. These memories will be named ‘Trip Highlights’ or ‘Best of the Month’ Memories.
Apart from the changes mentioned earlier, the new Google Photos update will be stacked with computational photography to design more vivid 3D-like effects.
