Google Photos thought of a service, called “Rediscover This Day”, which helps you remember memories by uploading photos and videos of cherished moments on this platform. If you stored footage on a USB drive, CD or DVD, for instance, you can upload whichever photo and video you choose on their service.
Google Photos is a cloud-storage app for a user’s pictures and videos. The best feature is that the user benefits from unlimited storage of photos and videos as well.
Chris Perry, product lead for Google Photos Search, said that they would take into consideration first and foremost the visual quality of the photos. They would look at something that worked as an “event”, meaning photos that were taken across a longer time frame. They would attempt to look at the background, landscapes, something emotionally stimulating. These particular photos will be turned into collages.
Google Photos now has the enhanced ability to turn your visual data into a memory worth the while spent reminiscing, via animations, stories or effects you can use on them. The Assistant manages the alerts, or you can get notified on the web whenever the updates on your videos or photos have been completed, all this happening with almost no effort. So, you should be able to let your imagination run free and give way to your personal creations.
The app’s “Rediscover This Day” feature is available on your desktop web browser, but it has a version for iOS and Android too. So, basically, you use it to turn a photo (or video) into something fancy, remembering what you did a while ago.
It’s similar to Facebook’s Memories, but this particular app coming from Google won’t pop up daily, instead showing up when you’ve gathered a decent amount of photos.
Moreover, you can use so-called timestamps on this service to help you better frame your memory.
Perry explained that they made this feature so that people would have fun, and he succeeded, taking into consideration the positive feedback he’s received so far.
At the present time Google Photos will permit you to post an animation on Facebook as a GIF or on Instagram and WhatsApp as a video.
An intriguing feature of Google Photos is that if you search for a certain item, in the categories “places”, “people” or “things”, you will be prompted with footage resembling anything related to that specific term.
So it seems that the “Rediscover This Day” will easily help you remember your past, re-living it through pictures. So if you’re inclined to say “That was really fun!” – this app will certainly help you remember those moments.
