Google Photos is getting nicer for larger smartphones

The Google Photos interface changes a bit to make sharing faster. This limited deployment test now gives a more manageable interface on large smartphones, but you may not be able to access it right away.

Google Photos is changing its look again and adopting a new interface in version 5.96, as spotted by 9to5Google. This allows users to directly share their photos and videos from the application’s library.

A complete interface accessible with one hand

A new pop-up appears when you select photos or videos from your library “, explains the specialized media. This novelty still seems to be the subject of a limited deployment for the moment.

If previously, when selecting content, an interface appeared at the top of the screen, it is now brought to the bottom of the screen. This makes it easier to access these menus, especially when you have a large screen. The options To share, Add to and To delete become more accessible on large smartphones.

Options also allow the user to directly order prints of his shots from the application, to archive content or even to move a locked folder that requires a fingerprint or a code to be unlocked.

More shortcuts, but not for everyone

With this new interface, Google Photos users will no longer have to go to each of their photos to share their images and videos. Content can also be added to an album from a shortcut, and its location can then be viewed.

Google had already revamped its library and sharing tab before. This new interface change is now also being tested for the Photos tab. However, it could be that due to its limited deployment, this change does not immediately arrive on the smartphones of all users.
