Google Photos 2.0 enhances Live Photos support

Google has released an update to Google Photos, incorporating some of the Live Photos features it debuted in its Motion Stills app earlier this year. While Google Photos added support for backing up and viewing live photos back in March, Google Photos 2.0 now allows users to apply image stabilization to Live Photos and save them as looping animated GIFs or video clips for easier sharing with non-iOS devices. The new version of Google Photos will also allow users to freeze the background in a Live Photo or create “sweeping cinematic pans” — although more advanced Live Photo editing features beyond this remain the purview of the full Motion Stills app. The Google Photos 2.0 update also adds the ability to choose a new thumbnail for faces in the People section, sort photos in albums chronologically or by date added, and more streamlined sharing to YouTube.
