What you need to know
- Google Photos is adding a new tool to relive important moments and memories.
- New "Memories" feature adds Instagram Stories-like to a carousel at the top of the Photos app.
- Google also says there will be a new private conversation feature coming later this year for sharing and discussing photos amongst family and friends.
Google is cranking out the Photos features today. Alongside the ability to order same-day prints at CVS and order canvas prints of photos that really do deserve to be framed on your wall, Google Photos is adding Memories, photo slideshows that display like Instagram Stories.

Rolling out today, you can take a stroll down memory lane right from Google Photos with our new Memories feature. See the highlights from this week over the years. https://t.co/FBtRk2DTQe pic.twitter.com/vG1A210vOg
This is the next logical step for the flashback feature Google Photos has had for years, and rather than digging through tons of duplicates to find the best shots, Google is using machine learning to show the best shots time after time. The location of the new Memories is front and center, too: rather than hiding it in the Assistant tab, Memories will have their own carousel right below the search bar.
The new feature is rolling out on Android and iOS starting today, and I can't wait to see how it handles my thousands upon thousands of pictures around Walt Disney World.
