Google beefs up Photos search with custom labels for your loved ones

Google has announced new, powerful search features for Google Photos. You can now give the important people in your life custom, private labels, letting you find the exact photos and moments that you're looking for more easily.

Using machine learning, Google Photos will now intelligently identify these people as you've labeled them. So, if you search for photos of "Maggie hiking," for instance, you'll get photos of just the person you've labeled as Maggie while she's hiking. The feature will roll out to Android this week, and will arrive on the web and iOS "soon."

Stay tuned to the Android Central liveblog for more on Google's latest announcements.
