Additionally, you’ll see “ suggestions” for which photos to add to an album you’ve joined. If it’s about a birthday party, for example, Google may look for other pictures of the same group that might have been left out.

When sharing an album, you’ll need to turn on the Collaborate and Comment features to let people participate. You’ll see the toggle for these when selecting a group of pictures to share.

All the new goodies are found in the latest build of Google Photos, which is still rolling out on the Play Store (as of Friday) or available now on APK Mirror.

The image recognition capabilities are also top notch, though just keep in mind if you want full sizes of your pictures saved it will eat into your Google Drive storage bank.
