Google Photos update lets you 'hide' people

Google Photos update lets you 'hide' people
An update is circulating for Google Photos. With the latest version of the app, you can prevent pictures showing a particular person from surfacing under the People section of the app. By selecting to hide this person from appearing, keep in mind that events with him/her will not show up in "Rediscover this day" cards in the Assistant.

The update also adds Face grouping to Latin America, Canada, the Caribbean, Australia, and New Zealand. Parts of Asia, the Middle East and Africa will also be able to use the feature that groups similar faces together, to help you find quickly the person that you are looking for.

With Google Photos 1.8, you will now be able to pinch and zoom on search results. According to Google, the new version of Photos makes the app run spooky fast, and also contains some bug fixes. The update is rolling out to Android devices starting today (go to the Google Play Store and check My apps) with the iOS and desktop versions in line to be updated soon.
