Remember when it was announced at Google I/O 2017 that Google Photos will allow its users to create real-life printed photo books out of their photos? Well, it seems that this feature has been recently soft-launched in Canada, as some users have noticed the new functionality built into their app.
We are not sure when exactly this novel feature will be hitting the US, but we get to see some of the details as well as the pricing of Photos' printed books.
Users can choose between a softcover, 7-inch square book consisting of 20 pages that will cost them $9.99, and a hardcover 9-inch square book that also consists of 20 pages and has a $19.99 price tag. If 20 pages seem like a lowly number to you, rest assured that you can order more: an additional soft-cover page will cost you $0.35, whereas a hardcover one will raise the total price by $0.65.
Note that the prices above and in the screenshot on the left are apparently in Canadian dollars, so we might expect US prices to be $7.45 for a softcover and $14.86 for the hardcover option.
It was announced that Photo Books, as well as the rest of the neat new functionalities of Google Photos, will be rolling out to end-users in the following weeks. Aside from Books, Photos will also gain Google Lens and a ton of other features that you can get to know right here.
Here's to hoping that this happens sooner than later.
