Anil Sabharwal takes to the stage
Tremendous adoption of Google Photos since launch. Already uploaded over 50 billion photos and videos
A home for all your photos and videos, brought to life
Three new features to make it easier to share, relive and hold onto the moments that matter
Talking about how it's difficult to pool and share photos and videos
And how do you do those things in a way that requires no setup and works across platforms?
Demoing no-strings-attached sharing
Now with the new "plus" button you can easily add your own photos to a friend or family member's album
notifications to show you who's added stuff to your albums
A core part of the Google Photos mission
Easier to hold onto the memories that matter even when you weren't holding the camera
You can also "join" to subscribe to albums, and receive notifications when new photos or videos are added
(Slight demo wonk here with notifications not firing)
With Google Photos we didn't want to just build any photos app.
With machine learning we can automatically organize your photos and videos around what matters to you
But how do you drill down and search for two specific people together?
So now you can give names to the important people in your life
For example "Maggie hiking"
These new features are coming to Android this week. Other platforms very soon.
"We're bringing Chromecast to Photos"
Tap the button, select the device and we're ready to go
And you can swipe through photos on your phone, do a search, etc. without changing the photo being cast
Unlike mirroring, you can control what you cast to the TV
Also works with local photos not backed up to the cloud
Chromecast in Photos rolling out this week on Android and soon on iOS
For more on Chromecast, here's Mario from the Chromecast team
Chromecast based on the idea that the smartphone is the center of your digital life
Your phone is your best remote
