They’ve also added editing tools for Google’s auto-generated movies that let you use your own music and add photos to them, and more. Advertisement From the Google Photos team, posting at Google+: Rolling out now, the latest Google Photos update helps you find your photos faster with a new search bar. Start searching in one tap, or scroll down after tapping on the search bar to see faces, places, and photo types from your library. In addition, Google Photos now offers the ability to customize automatically created movies with your own music, photos, and videos, so it’s easier than ever to make the perfect video after a holiday or trip. It’s also perfect for Mother’s Day – which you knew was coming up on May 8, right? Some of this sounds like the same search we’ve come to know and love in Google Photos, but in addition to the usual search bar, now when you tap the search bar, you can type and look for something or see specific faces you often photograph, or choose specific media types (like video, movies, or animations) you can search through.

In addition to the search upgrades, Google’s auto-generated movie recaps are always great, but you could only choose music they offered and you couldn’t really edit them—now you can use your own music in those brief movies, and splice in photos from other trips, or add shots from the same trip Google didn’t think to include. All in all, some nice improvements. The update is rolling out now to all users, so keep an eye out for the latest version for your device. Hit the link below to read the full announcement.
