Google's 'Live Albums' to Create and Share Albums Automatically
Updated: Added details and link
Live Albums are the latest photo-focused feature of Google Photos. With Live Albums enabled, Google Photos automatically finds and shares users' images with others. In order for it to work, people will need to create tags for people or places. As people capture images of those people the photos will automatically be added to the album and shared with those designated as part of a family or group. The app was created alongside the Google Home Hub, Google's new in-home smart display. People will be able to take photos that are instantly added to albums and then used as the screen saver on the Home Hub. Live Albums are part of the Google Camera app on the latest Pixel phones, but should reach other Android devices over time.
