Our pet is part of our family, and Google understands that. The company recently updated its Photos app, bringing the ability to not just identify cats and dogs, but can also recognise them individually. This means that you no longer have to type “cat” in the search bar and scroll through hundreds of photos just to find one photo of your pet taken last year.
Once you get the update, you will see your pets grouped alongside people. Just like people, you can label your pet by name, so you can quickly find photos of them in the future; this also makes it easier for you to create albums and movies of your beloved pet.
That’s not all, Google Photos can also recognise the breed of your pet – just search for Poodle or Maine Coon to find that particular breed. You can also search by using the cat or dog emoji to find your pet’s photos.
This is not the first time Google is paying more attention to your pets. Back in May, the company rolled out an update that compiles photos and videos of your pet to make a short pet movie starring your furry friend. With this update, you can easily make your own movie, just select your favourite photos, tap “+” and create a movie.
Google is rolling out the update starting today, and should be available in “most countries”.
