Google Photos is known for the convenience it offers – all thanks to the company’s machine learning algorithms – and one of those features is Cinematic Photo Effects, which launched in 2020 and automatically add depth effects and motion to photos to make them look ‘cinematic’. and immersive. Android Police reports that the feature is being updated with an option to take cinematic photos on demand.
Now users will find the option to take cinematic photos when they tap the “Tools” button in Google Photos’ “Library” tab. And to turn a standard photo into a cinema photo, users have to choose a photo and set how long they want the cinema photo.
Once done, Google Photos will show users a cinematic photo that comes with a slow-motion zoom animation. Android Police further notes that the quality of the effect depends on the quality of the photo users choose.
It’s not clear when the feature’s wide rollout will begin, but according to the Google News Telegram Channel, some users are already reporting getting the feature.
The feature is likely reserved for Google Pixel users and Google One subscribers, as is Google’s Magic Eraser.
In other news, Google has announced that it will end support for “Drive for desktop” on Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and all 32-bit versions of Windows in August.
