Google Photos app to get redesigned, first screenshots leak online

google photos redesign

The first look screenshots of the upcoming Google Photos application have been leaked showing the app’s redesign and its functionalities partially. Google has officially stated “here is the new Google Photos app” and these screenshots are quite convincing.

The new look of the Google Photos seems to be more visually striking than the Google+ photos section and it is overflowing with Material Design. The app will include a new feature that will let you drag your finger across the screen to choose multiple images for batch deletion, copies and more for an easier and quicker action than before.

Once you open the new application, you will be greeted with a set of instructions as in the other Google applications. It is something like a tutorial making it easier for you to understand the new features.


An Android Police report claims that the Google Photos app will include similar capabilities as the Google+ photos section such as searching for images based on a particular criteria and automatic photos backup.

In terms of new features, you can view a collection of photos with sorting options such as month view, day view and comfortable view that is new. Google seems to be giving new set of creation tools into the new Assistant feature that will replace auto-awesome. This will introduce the ability to take multiple collections of photos and turn them into albums, stories, movies, collages or animations.

This seems to be an early look into the application and there is no word on when we can expect to see an official launch of the same.
