Future Google Photos update might include some nifty new features

Some may say that Google’s decision to detach Google Photos from Google+ was the best thing that could’ve ever happened, and to that we have to agree. The service has blossomed to be one of the best cloud photo services in the business, and even at a time when it still lacks features. Those particular things it misses could be in the pipeline for the company’s next update as we learn today.

Google Photos v1.5 was recently dissected, and the teardown reveals a lot of changes to come soon. One of these is Album Collaboration, which as the name implies, will allow users to create, share and then update these albums with a group. Other code strings allow you to label people, or tag them as we currently hear in other services. Google Photos is particularly good at detecting people’s faces, so this is just the missing piece of the puzzle. We also notice that Google Cast options could be supported as well, though we don’t know how this will match with the existing wallpaper services we see in the Chromecast.

Sadly we don’t know exactly when this update could reach your devices, but it could just be a matter of weeks by what we see.
