Google had taken the online storage industry by storm when it announced its free, unlimited photo storing service Google Photos. Since then, the service hasn’t received too many updates, until now. Google has announced a bunch of new feature that make Google Photos even more useful than before.


Users now have the ability to edit an image’s timestamp, rearrange the image order in albums and change an album’s cover photo and remove inaccurate results from searches. These features are apparently user-requested, as Google said the following on its official Google Photos account:

We’re always listening to your feedback and we’re are happy to announce a few often requested updates for the web. We’ve also added some additional features since launch that let you change your album cover photo and remove inaccurate search results. All of these updates are now live at so make sure to go and give them a try.

In another separate posting Google also announced it’s launching an improved community product forum:

Since we launched Google Photos we heard your feedback, have released new features, and our Photos community is getting bigger and we’re answering more questions than before. In an effort to improve our community support, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of a new Google Photos product forum. 

On the forum users will be able to interact with the experts who are a part of the Top Contributor program. For the time being, it seems that these feature have rolled out only for the web version of the service, but chances are that it will soon roll out to the mobile apps, as well.
