The year 2021 is coming to an end. Before the new year begins, Google Photos is rounding up the year with a bunch of new features to help users enjoy the festive cheer. The list includes features such as People & Pets widget, Cinematic photos and event Memories.
Google first introduced Cinematic Photos in Google Photos almost a year back as a way to ‘relive your memories in a way that feels more vivid and realistic’. At the time, the company had said that the feature would use machine learning (ML) to produce 3D motion in the image. A year later, Google is making this feature a tad bit smarter. As a part of the update, Google Photos will leverage ML to fill in the parts of the background behind the subject. This, as Google explains, will allow the “virtual camera to move freely” as it finds the best frame for the subject.
People & Pets widget
Google is also rolling out a new People & Pets widget on Android. This new widget lets users pick their closest friends, family members and pets and display photos of them on their phones’ home screens. It is quite similar to Google Photos’ Memories widget on Android and iOS that lets users see their Memories on their phones’ home screens. The difference is that in the case of the new People & Pets widgets, users have more control over the images of the people (and pets) that users want to see on their home screens.

Google has also started rolling out Event Memories on Google Photos. This feature lets users look back on memories from important days such as New Year’s eve, birthdays and graduation among others. Google says that users will also be able to rename or remove these Memories from their photo grids.
Memories on Nest Hub
Lastly, the company announced that now users will also be able to view their Memories on the Nest Hub smart display. All they need to do is head over to the Your Day tab in the Google Photos app on the Nest Hub smart display.
