Several new features are coming out soon for Google Photos, including a new Color Pop feature that plays around with the colors of an image.

Google Photo's Newest Features Roll Out

Google I/O 2018 took place on May 8 to May 10 in California. At the annual conference for developers, Google made sure to hype their upcoming innovations. In 2018, the company focused on promoting Google Photos.

Several new features for Google Photos were revealed at Google I/O 2018, including an artificial intelligence feature known as Color Pop. This new feature is a one-click editing process that turns the background of a photo black and white while the subject stays in color. However, the feature can only be used for certain images in which Google can easily identify the subject in it.

Some people are currently getting access to it. On May 11, one user on Reddit posted an image taken with Color Pop on. With the current update, it is not likely that Color Pop will be released to everyone yet.

Currently, the Play Store lists Color Pop in the changelog, but it keeps getting altered. Color Pop should be rolled out to everyone over the next few weeks.

"You may see a new photo creation that plays with pops of color," Google wrote on its blog. "In these creations, we use AI to detect the subject of your photo and leave them in color — including their clothing and whatever they're holding — while the background is set to black and white."

One new feature that is available in Google Photos is an archive feature. With this tool, an artificial intelligence assistant asks users if they want to archive photos that they are currently viewing. This technology can also be helpful because it can archive receipts, business cards, and other important documents.

In general, Google Photos has always been a very impressive app for pictures. Popular features include free storage and other incredible editing aspects.

Features For Google Photos That Users Are Still Waiting On

Just because Google announced a new feature doesn't necessarily mean that it will come out any time soon.

At Google I/O 2017, the company announced a new obstruction removal feature that would eliminate things blocking a subject in an image on Google Photos. Google CEO Sundar Pichai said it would be released "very soon."

As of May, the obstruction removal feature is still not out yet. Users were never given a reason for the delay, but it is likely that Google had to prioritize other changes first before this update.
