Google Photos for Web Gets ‘Memories’ Carousal After Android and iOS Apps

Google Photos for Web is getting a much-awaited feature that has been around for a while on its Android and iOS mobile apps. ‘Memories’ arriving with the latest update will let users see a carousel of moments from different periods. The Google Photos for Web feature will work similarly to how it works on the mobile app. Memories will appear at the top of the Google Photos gallery when opened in a browser. It will display a curated selection of slideshows taken from the user’s old and recent images. Additionally, users can hide photos of specific people or periods from showing up in Memories.

Google Photos on Wednesday revealed the addition of Google Photos Memories on the Web via its official Twitter page. As mentioned, users can see the collections of some of their photos and videos from previous years or recent weeks on the computer with the latest feature. Users must visit Google Photos and sign in to their Google Account to try it out. Memories will appear in a carousel at the top of the home screen — above a user’s recent pictures. Users can find related images from that time by opening a memory and clicking on the arrows in the carousel. Like on mobile, the user can open a Memory by clicking on any of them.

iOS Apps

There are options for customization as well. Memories can be set as previous years, recent highlights, or themed memories from within the Settings. It should be noted that any alterations the user makes to Memories on the Web will also sync with what appears on the mobile app. Google Photo users can also hide photos of specific people or periods from appearing in Memories. Additionally, any previously hidden content on another device will not appear on the Web version. When a Google Photo user hides someone, their face won’t come up in Memories, creations, or on the search page.

As per Google’s blog, the Memories on Google Photos for Web started rolling out on Wednesday, October 20. Nithya P Nair is a journalist with more than five years of experience in digital journalism.
