During the presentation event of the Google Pixel 3rd and 3rd XL on May 7, Google took the opportunity to present multiple developments in many of its services. Among other things, it showed one of the features that will reach Google Photos: the ability to automatically color black and white photographs. There we could see some demonstrations of this function, but I was still under test and the results were not as good as intended. Today that feature is closer to reaching all our phones, as it has been able to discover the people of 9to5Google.
In one of its sections, in 9to5Google they analyze the code of various applications and in some occasions, they find surprises that show us characteristics that will arrive in the near future to that application. Something similar happened with the Google Pixel 4 telephoto camera, revealed by analyzing the Google camera application code, which gave clues about the presence of a zoom camera.
Google Photos: color, memory stories and more
It seems that Google has plans to add many new features to your galley application. Google Photos seems to us of the best apps today, if not the best, especially for unlimited free photo storage. As we mentioned, signs have been found in the last version of the application that they tell us that the function of coloring black and white photographs will arrive shortly. This function is designed especially for old photographs and will rely on artificial intelligence to predict the colors that could be in that situation. We leave you with the code fragment:
Add color to old photos (BETA)
Colorize analyzes black and white photos and adds color. u201cBETA u201d means were actively collecting feedback on this feature to improve results.
The stories are part of any application that wants to be a social network. Today we find them on Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, Snapchat … and every time in more apps. Well, Google Photos will be the following, although it will have a differentiating touch. As soon as this function is enabled, Our memories (from our own Google Photos gallery) will be shown in a story format, but a priori it does not seem that we can see stories of our contacts. The truth is that we find an interesting way to consult our memories.
In this case, in addition to the code indicating the presence of this mode, we can see the lines that indicate the gestures that we can make within the stories, along with a representative GIF of each gesture, probably for the first time we will see a story as a tutorial.
