Google Photos can now recognize photos of your furry friends.
The feature, rolling out in most countries today, automatically groups photos of the same pet together and allows users to search for photos of their pets by their name.
Users can search to quickly find photos of their pets, or even photos of themselves with their pets.
HOW TO MAKE A MOVIE OF YOUR PET
To make a movie of your pet using Google Photos, tap on the new photo group of your pet.
Select your favorite photos, then tap ‘+’ and create a movie.
There are six-pet inspired to choose from in the movie editor for a soundtrack of the movie.
To use the feature, users no longer need to type ‘dog’ or ‘cat’ into the Google Photos search bar as they once did.
Instead, users can search for pets by their name, making it easier to create photo albums, movies or even a photo book of their pet.
Not only can users now group their pets, Google Photos already has some other features to help with documenting photos of one’s pet(s).
For example, users can search by breed to see photos of their poodle or golden retriever, or even search by emoji to see photos of their pet dogs or cats.
However, a Google spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that this is just the start for the new feature, and if users have, say, three pets of the same breed (for example three pomeranian dogs), then the user might need to help train the app by removing photos of the misgrouped pet, so the app can tell one pet from another.
Google Photos may have even automatically made a movie of a user’s pet – a feature that rolled out in May.

By checking the ‘Assistant’ view in Google Photos, users can see if a movie of their pet(s) has been made.
Or, if users wants to make a movie themselves, they can do so by tapping on the new photo group of their pet, selecting their favorite photos, tapping ‘+’ and creating a movie – this also works to create a photo book.
If users want to swap the soundtrack or create their own movies, Google Photos has six pet-inspired songs to choose from in the movie editor.
