Google Photos Introduced Pet & Food Portrait Mode

Google has been very generous with new features during the last few months, and another cool update is coming soon. As the announcement says, the Google Photos app will soon be able not only to shoot portraits of people but many other objects as well. Let’s take a look at the details. 

More Subjects!

While the original Portrait Blur feature can blur backgrounds around people’s faces that are close to the camera, the updated feature will be able to identify a wider range of subjects. It means that the portrait mode will work with your pets, garden flowers, memorable meals, and more. 

The best fact about the update is that it will work not only with new shots but with your entire gallery. You can even edit the images received from your friends on social media. All due to the algorithm that starts working only after you take a photo. Another benefit is that you will be able to disable Portrait Blur if you don’t like how it looks. 

More to Come

In addition to the improved portrait photo feature, Google will soon roll out:

  • iOS iMessage reaction support, 

  • better grammar check algorithm, 

  • a new screen time widget, 

  • expanded accessibility options, 

  • offline mode for LiveTranslate and Live Transcribe,

  • new parking payments options for Android Auto,

  • new Google TV app interface with a smarter Highlights tab,

  • Nearby Share upgrade

Cool, But…

Although the new portrait feature is very appealing and useful to many, it will be available only for Pixel owners and Google One subscribers. Hopefully, the rest of the Android smartphone developers will catch up and include the feature in their upcoming updates too.
