Google Photos will now recognize your pets better and group them

This time the search giant has updated its Google Photos app, which can now group together images of your pets using face recognition. Your Assistant can also make random videos compilations of your pet, or you yourself can make the video by choosing which photos and videos to enjoy.

Google Photos has been increasingly using AI-infused computer vision smarts for a while to help its 500 million-plus users organize their snaps, including auto-rotating tools and self-curating features.

Some people take tons of photos of their pets all day.

Mobile Limits the Data Usage in Canada and Mexico to 5 GB
In order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product , we implemented a limit on the amount of monthly 4G LTE data. T-Mobile has made this change which will only affect one percent of the people traveling to Mexico and Canada.


This isn't ideal. Google was quick to acknowledge to BuzzFeed that Photos might get confused if you have different pets from a similar breed, so don't expect it to tell the difference between your golden retrievers. Users are required to tap on the new photo group featuring their pet, select photos and click on the "+" button.

Once you have labelled your pet, Photo Assistant gets to work and will most likely have made a movie starring your pet as well. You can even tag m with names. "If you have a number of pets that are the same breed (such as a few yellow Labs), you might need to help the app by removing photos of a misgrouped pet, so the app can tell Lassie from Fido". It's up to the owner then to sort one dog/cat/rabbit/fish from the other and correct the grouping.

Fortunately, the app has been rolled out to most of the countries from today itself. So when you want Google to show you photos of your terrier dog, results you're facing may not be exactly simplicity and perfection you want.
