Ever had a hard time searching for a specific photo online? There's now a way for users to have better search results with the help of additional filters the Google Photos app just rolled out. With a massive amount of images on the internet, finding the right one is extremely difficult.

Google Photos App Additional Filters

Google is adding additional filters to improve search results and help people to find what they are looking for through the Google Photos app. According to AndroidPolice, while users search for certain images about a particular person, users will now be able to make use of a number of filters that can simply be found under the search bar in order to refine the main terms of their search.

Users can then change the type of images that they are searching for by maybe including videos, screenshots, selfies, and even other people to the original search. It is also important to understand that the filters reportedly don't really add new capabilities of the Google Photos app, since there were actually ways for users to access the same results before.

According to the story by PhoneArena, the difference now is that anyone can pinpoint what they are searching for with the use of additional filters. When users tap on the filters, they will get a number of options that will assist them in refining their search terms.

  • Selfies - Google Photos will narrow the search to selfies

  • Creations - Google Photos will narrow the search to images created

  • Animations - Google Photos will narrow the search to animations

  • Videos - Google Photos will narrow the search to videos

  • Archive - Google Photos will narrow the search to archive images

Check for Google Photos Filters Availability

As of the moment, it does not really seem like the new feature has already been widely disseminated and it is actually likely part of a new server-side update. However, users might want to still try to roll the dice themselves and easily install the latest version of the app coming from the Google Play Store in order to see if there are really new filters added.

As of the moment, the updated filters could be available for some but still unavailable for others. The only way to know whether or not the filters are available is to try the Google Photos app and see if the new features are accessible. With the use of filters, users will be able to search for what they are looking for with a more specific filtering process.
