The revamped Memories experience in Google Photos is rolling out today, which focuses heavily on videos including the best snippets from your longer videos that it will automatically select and trim so you can relive the most meaningful moments.

Still photos will now also feel more dynamic. Soon, you’ll begin to see full Cinematic Memories that transform multiple still photos into an end-to-end cinematic experience. Also starting next month, Google Photos will begin adding instrumental music to some Memories.


Google is also rolling out a new feature called Styles where graphic art is automatically added to your memories to make them pop. There will be several designs at launch, including limited-time styles from featured artists.

Lastly, Google Photos is introducing a new collage editor for easily creating shareable collages. Pick your photos, select your design, and easily rearrange the layout with simple drag-and-drop controls.

Android users can now also share entire Memories with their friends and family in just a few taps, so they can view them right from Google Photos on any device. The feature is coming soon to iOS and web users.
