Google Photos has recently been receiving updates that aim at improving user experience and bringing in nifty features. One such feature that was spotted by a few users was the ability to markup images on Google Photos. As the name suggests, the feature provides users with simple tools to draw on images. However, not many devices saw this update, and there was no way to force install it. Now, a small post on the Google Photos Support forum suggests that the feature is rolling out to all Android users.
Accessing the tool is straight forward since the Markup icon is present right in the editing interface. It provides users with the option to choose from a list of colors and two types of brushes. For those that are accustomed to using the Photos app for quick editing, this feature will indeed be a welcome addition. There is a separate support page with more details on using the editing tools in Photos.
In addition to these small improvements, reports suggest that the firm is also testing the ability to manually tag faces in Photos for when automatic tagging fails to recognize a person. This feature was confirmed to be in the roadmap for the app earlier this year.
The markup tool is currently rolling out to users worldwide. The feature might not show up right away to all users and may be a while till every device received the update since it is staggered.
What do you think of the addition of this feature to Photos? Let us know in the comments.
