Google today will begin rolling out new sharing functionality in Google

Photos, first unveiled at the company’s I/O developer conference in May.


														
							

Specifically, it’s launching the AI-powered Suggested Sharing feature along with Shared Libraries, both of which are designed to make the Google Photos app a more social experience, rather than just a personal collection of photo memories.

Companies for years have tried to figure out ways to leverage technology in order to get users to share the photos snapped on their smartphone with others.

With the addition of Suggested Sharing, Google Photos will now prompt you to share photos you took by pushing an alert to your smartphone. The feature will identify people in the photos using facial recognition technology and machine learning, which helps it understand who you typically share photos with, among other things.

A second feature called Shared Libraries is designed more for use with families or significant others.

This lets you either share your entire photo collection with someone else, or you can configure it to share only selected photos – for example, photos of your children. Kid photos is probably the largest use case for this feature, as it would let two parents share these photos automatically.
