Google Photos introduces individual photo sharing and comments

Messenger

"This feature isn't created to replace the chat apps you already use, but we do hope it improves sharing memories with your friends and family in Google Photos", Google said.

An argument could be made that Google has over-indulged in its creation of way too many messaging apps in years past. It still offers a pretty hand way to share photos with your friends and family, as long as they are on Google Photos as well. Up until now, the only way to share a single photo within the Google Photos app was to create a shared album with just... one image inside it. Users have pointed out how silly this seems, and so Google created "a simpler experience" by adding the ability to send private messages within the app. That may limit the feature to some extent, as not everyone is a Google user.

You'll access these by tapping the share button in a photo that then brings up a list of those conversations you have going. You can comment, like, save, and continue adding photos to these conversations over time, giving you an ongoing chat with family and friends about your visual life.

With the new feature, Google is having another crack at messaging.

Death toll nears 100 in Syria's Idlib - monitor
A ceasefire announced by Russian Federation in late August has reduced fighting, but air strikes and clashes increased in November.

As for the launch, the new direct sharing feature has officially been launched today.

It's worth noting that Google Photos doesn't isn't trying to become an "all-in-one" app (like Instagram does). People all over the globe can expect to have it over the following week.

Google Photos is getting a built-in chat functionality where users can share pictures from their library with others. The addition will allow users to quickly and easily share those one-off photos or videos with another person, instead of taking additional steps to build a shared album. Still, it could come in handy when sharing through the web app. Will you find the new feature useful?
