Google announces easier ways to share in Photos

Google announced new features for its Photos service today, including the ability to share images and videos more easily. The company is also promising that it's "upping our game when it comes to automatic creations."

Previously, sharing an image on Photos meant choosing if you want to post it to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or manually share it somewhere else by copying a link. Now, it should be much easier.

Now, you'll select what you want to share, choose who you want to share it with, and Google Photos promises to take care of the rest. If you want to send it to someone that uses Google Photos, they'll get a notification, but if you share to someone else - for example, a Windows phone user - that can be sent via SMS or email.

Automatic creations are getting better as well. While the service has always made movies out of your photos, they will now be based on creative concepts. Google says that they're "the kinds of movies you might make yourself, if you just had the time."

The company says that it's rolling out a "couple more" concepts this week, with more on the way. The new features will be rolling out to iOS, Android, and the web today.
