Google Photos update adds the option to tag yourself


Google Photos has been updated quite a few times in the last couple of weeks. The last new feature added by Google allows users to archive photo duplicates and have a much less cluttered gallery.

Today, another improvement has been added to the app, which enables Google Photos users to tag themselves in a picture. Whenever you tag yourself in a picture as “me,” you'll get personalized search and be able to find all photos of yourself. If you use your smartphone, you can activate it by heading to Settings / Group similar faces / Choose (under “No face labeled as me”) / Select your face.

Moreover, all your contacts will get suggestions to share with you when they take photos of you. The new feature appears active only when the face grouping feature is enabled in the Settings / Group similar faces.

Of course, you can always untag yourself, which comes in handy whenever you select the wrong face in a photo. You can even stop letting contacts get suggestions to share photos with you and still receive personalized movies and animations. The new feature will soon be available on both the Android and iOS platforms, but it's already enabled on the web for many users.

"Whenever you tag yourself in a group pictures as “me,” you'll get personalized search since you'll be able to search for all photos of yourself." That sounds convenient. A welcomed update to make searching for photos of myself easier.

All the more easier for Google to give more data of you to the NSA
