Google Photos Offers More Powerful Collages, Big ‘Memories’ Update

Too accurate three years ago, Google launched a feature called “memories” in Photos, with the goal of making users relive old memories. Many people today have huge image archives and Google wants to help us highlight older material that we might not otherwise have looked at.

According to Google, users today look at 3.5 billion of these “memories” in Photos each month. Now the memory function has received its biggest update since its inception. The memories will contain more videos, including the snippets from longer videos that the algorithm thinks are the best.


Google writes that images will feel more dynamic thanks to a subtle zoom-in. Starting next month, the memories can also receive instrumental music. Users can still exclude people and time periods from the reminder feature, as we don’t always want to be reminded of certain things.

Another innovation mentioned is “cinematic memories” that give life to photographs in a new way. Google writes that the photos will feel more like a movie, with added music. Photos can also add graphics to images inspired by old scrapbooks. The memories can be shared with family and friends if desired, something that was not possible before.

The latest news is a more powerful feature for creating collages, which is welcome as the finesse was previously very limited compared to third-party apps.

To make looking back on and sharing important moments easier, we’re rolling out the biggest update to Memories since its launch and giving you a new collage editor so you can easily make shareable creations.

When you have hundreds of photos, it’s hard to manually scroll through your library to relive important moments. That’s my favorite thing about Memories — Google Photos does the work of resurfacing those moments so you can reminisce.
