Google will reveal its new photo storage and sharing solution this week during its IO conference. But we already have an idea of what it looks like thanks to leaked images.
Details of the upcoming app are available thanks to Android Police. The site posted a series of screenshots from the standalone Photos app.
A lot of features and functionality carries over from the current Photos app along with some new additions. Users can share photos and videos with a single URL, for example.
The Auto-Awesome tool is renamed as Assistant. This gives users more control over the slideshows, movies and collages you can create from your content. Meanwhile, it’s possible to create Albums automatically by date, location, or other metadata.
Automation seems to be one of the main features of the new app. Your pictures will be tagged automatically, so you can pull up images with the same tag immediately.
The big difference between this app and the current Photos app is that it won’t be connected to Google+. You can use it without signing up for an account, which may entice more people to use it.
