The service of backup and photo and video storage of Mountain View technology is a benchmark in the industry. Indeed, it is easy to recommend Google Photos for its great range of features and ease of use for any user.

Still, the application for Android and iOS, as well as the Web version could have more controls and search options. In other words, some search filters that would help us to navigate through the galleries and find exactly what we are looking for.

Good news on the way to the Google Photos service

This is precisely what Google is preparing for your Google Photos. According to the investigation carried out by Jane Manchun Wong, the usual source and with an excellent reliability record, there are new functions in the search engine for this service.

This does not mean that the company will disseminate and distribute developments in this direction globally, but it does show that work is underway to facilitate the search for content. At stake are new “Filters” and options for the Search function.

The value offer consists of the possibility that we can search for a specific location and then apply the search filters to search, for example, selfies or videos captured on the same date. It will be particularly useful, if implemented in the version accessible to the public, for those who have large image and video galleries in this service.

According to the aforementioned source, we may have a total of four new search filters, namely:

  • Selfies
  • Files
  • videos
  • Motion Photos (animated photos)

The novelties in question are being developed by North American technology. However, it is likely that they will soon be available through the channel beta, for users who want to try out the new options.

Finally, it is only at a later time that they will be able to reach the general public through the stable version of the application for Android, iOS and via the Web.
