Google Photos can now identify your pets

I tested the app on my own phone and while it did a fairly decent job on my two dogs and two cats, it did accidentally misidentify random photos of other pets as my own.

Pet owners with smartphones usually have the same trouble - their photo libraries are overflowing with images of their four-legged family members captured in all sorts of places, positions and situations. Google also offers its users, a search option in order to look out by animal as well as breed emojis. They can even make an album, movies and photo books on their pets. But frustratingly, finding those pet photos in the future can result in a search and a lot of scrolling.

Barking news! Now, photos of your dog or cat will be grouped alongside people in Google Photos.

Yes, Google Photos can now recognise your pets. All you need to do is select the Photo group folder of your pet and tap on '+' to create a video. Now, Google is extending this ability to your pet. Creating a movie starring your pet is also very simple. Google has even added pet-inspired songs to which you can set your photo-story with your pet to. So searching using a dog emoji will bring up all photos of your dog, for example.

Following the changes, the standard face grouping feature that was previously reserved for fur-less humanoids now applies to individual pets too. So, there have been mixed reviews from the users who have tried out the new Google Photos app on their respective smartphones.

The update is now rolling out in most countries and users should be able to use the feature after updating from the Play Store.
