Better Google Photos only for payers
On the occasion of the premiere of the Pixel 5 smartphone, Google introduced some interesting solutions based on machine learning to the Photos application. It was about new editing tools that improve background blur in portraits, can improve lighting and colors. Most of these tools were available before, but Pixel smartphones offered more advanced versions. Now, such opportunities will be available to all Android smartphone users, provided that they have a Google One subscription on their account. Therefore, what is known unofficially since November last year is confirmed.
The new capabilities of “paid” applications concern primarily older photos. Improved algorithms can create background blur in portraits that were taken without such information in the file. Owners of newer smartphones that record depth of field information in the photo have had such possibilities before, so they will not lose anything. In addition, Google is also adding a few new filters that can improve brightness, contrast and colors. The latter, which has a special mode to change the colors of the sky, looks interesting.
Google One is to be our primary cloud
Google wants more people to pay for cloud access. It started a few years ago and we are gradually trying to force everyone who uses the services of the giant to buy a subscription. The basic amount of data that Google offers in its cloud is 15 GB, it is divided into Gmail, files and photos. From June, Google will also start including photos in the Photos service, so far those saved in “good quality” did not count towards the limit. As a result, 15 GB will no longer be sufficient for most Android users.
And here Google One comes in all white, the cheapest subscription is PLN 89.99 per year or PLN 8.99 per month for an additional 100 GB. It is not a fortune, although it is not the best offer compared to other paid services. But what is not done for your own convenience? However, before you are forced to buy Google One, the giant wants to sweeten this move for you by adding more additional services for paying subscribers. It’s hard to blame them, we live in an age of subscription services. Over time, however, managing what we pay for can become quite complicated.
