Google Photos Live Albums Now Support Up to 20,000 Images
Google has updated the limit it initially placed on the number of photos and videos that can be added to a Live Album. When launched in October, the service supported up to 10,000 photos/videos. That number is now 20,000, twice as many as before. Google does warn that extreme album size may limit some features of Live Albums, though it didn't elaborate as to which ones. Live Albums relies on object recognition to automatically identify people and pets and build albums around those identities.
