Google is currently rolling out a new “rediscover this day” feature to its Google Photos app, bringing you back to events from one, two and even ten years ago.
The feature is currently available for Google Photos for iOS and the web, and is being rolled out to Android devices. Fortunately, “rediscover this day” is an opt-in feature, so if you have some bad memories in the past and do not wish to be reminded about it, you don’t have to worry about Google giving you a rude reminder about that memory.
The feature is not available for us at the moment, but from the looks of it, it is similar to Facebook’s “On this day” feature. Once you opt in, you will get cards in the Assist view reminding you of photos from events in your past. The post is private, and you can choose to share it with your friends via email or the social network.
Google Photos is one of the latest services from Google that was unveiled back in Google I/O 2015. It takes over the previous Google+ Photos, and offers free unlimited storage of high quality photos and videos (full resolution media will count against the storage you have). There are also other features like photo editor and Google Auto Awesome, to make it stand out from other cloud storage services in the market.
