Say you’re at a birthday party. Everyone is taking photos and promising to send them to each other. Later, everyone forgets — and now no one has a complete gallery of the event.
Google might soon have way to fix this. According to software developer and spotter of fresh features in popular apps, Jane Manchun Wong, the company is working on a new Google Photos feature that allows users to ask friends for photos.
“Get your photos, together at last,” says the description of the feature that Wong screenshotted. “Send this link to friends and family to request photos you missed. This link will allow friends and family with Google Photos to easily share with you in bulk.”
That, if we may say so, is pretty neat way to complete your photo gallery of an event, and also share photos with friends and family.
There’s no word on when the feature might go live, and sometimes Google tests features that never see the light of day. But it looks quite complete in Wong’s screenshot, so hopefully it will show up in Google Photos soon.
