Google just launched a bunch of hardware, including two new Pixel phones, but the company has also been working on some new features which can benefit users of other Android devices as well.
On Wednesday, Google rolled out a new version of the photo editor in the Google Photos app on Android. It uses machine learning to give you suggestions on how to fix a photo, which you can apply with one tap.
Google says more suggestions are coming to Pixel devices in the coming months, allowing you to easily improve certain common scenes such as portraits, landscapes, sunsets and more.
Other than these one-tap solutions, the new editor also offers more granular controls for settings such as brightness, contrast, saturation, and warmth.
The editor also has a new layout, allowing you to horizontally scroll through the various tools.
Finally, the new editor has a new feature called Portrait Light, allowing you to set a source light for a portrait photo after it’s been taken. The feature will also be applicable to photos that weren’t captured in Portrait mode, but for now, only on Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G), with more devices coming soon.
The new features are available on the Google Photos app on Android. There’s no word on whether we’ll see any of them on the Google Photos app for iOS.
