Google Photos creates automatic holiday-themed movies from your old Christmas photos

Seems like Google is expanding the automatic slideshows in Photos to include festive, Christmas-themed shots. If you use Google Photos, but somehow didn't know about this, the app often does these videos by sifting through your photos and picking a bunch with a common theme to use in a 'movie'. It could be your kids or pets growing up, photos from your most recent vacation, or simply memories from holidays past.

Reports indicate that Google Photos has started pushing notifications with holiday-themed slideshows created from photos in the user's camera roll, going as far as a few years back. It's not clear whether Google is simply toying around with the new feature or is planning a wider roll-out before the holidays. Either way, if Google sends you a slideshow with memories from last Christmas, don't forget to drop us a line!
