Google Photos adds new shortcut options for Android smartphone users – Times of India

Google is updating its Google Photos app by adding shortcuts in the ‘Info’ tab of a picture. Spotted by 9to5Google in the Google Photos app version 4.30 for Android, these shortcuts are already available for the iOS users. However, it is not guaranteed that if you’re on this app version that you will get this update, as the report claims that it is a server-based addition.

As per the report, the new shortcuts appear when you tap on the three dot icon on the top right corner of a picture. Once you tap on that, you will spot ‘Info’ on top. Tapping on that now slides up the Info panel instead of opening a long menu with nine items. Once this opens, you will see a carousel at the top with actions including : Add to album, Move to archive, Delete from device, Order photo, Use as, Slideshow, and Print.

The Exchangeable image file (EXIF) format has also been altered. Google has also placed the day, date, and time in a single line with description section under it, followed by Location map with coordinates. Other Details, such as file name, size, resolution, and megapixel count, device details is now the bottom.

Last week, Google made a change in the ‘Albums’ section of the app. The firm is letting Android users tweak the arrangement of the albums. Although the app arranges album in reverse chronological order with the ‘Most recent photo’ being on top. Now, you get two additional options of “Last modified” and “Album title” in which you can arrange the albums. Once selected, the option will be seen in Blue besides the ‘Album’ section. Although a basic feature, this makes a difference when it comes to long scrolling to find an album. You can still find the album from the search bar but this is meant to improve the scrolling experience.
