Google's had fun creating new Auto-Awesome animations that match the theme of every holiday season these days, but this latest one is rather amusing. For Valentines Day, Google has rolled out animated hearts that will automatically appear on any photos of people kissing. This can add a little extra spark to that loving picture of you and that special someone. As usual, the animation may not appear immediately, but Google+ will shoot you a notification when it's ready.

That's not all. Mr. Jingles may not be himself today with all this kissing going on. He's never been one to look down in the dumps, but today he's really feeling the love.

If you're not already in the Valentine's Day spirit, these additions probably won't do much to change that. But hey, that doesn't mean you can't at least re-upload one of these pictures and have yourself a laugh.

    Google+ doesn't seem to get much love anymore. It saw a lot of updates back in the day and now it doesn't get much. Why is the Google+ app on Android still a mess with that stupid black bar and blue "New Posts" notification? Screen real estate = gone.

    I read somewhere it works for pictures of people hugging too. Cheesy but still nice for the "holiday"

    The snow one is still the best one, like a snow globe.

      I liked the sparkly lights one -- that made some great Christmas tree photos for me, where all the bright lights on the tree were picked out and sparkled.

    When will we see Apple do these kind of things?

      When they open up Apple hardware and allow you to flash Android on those devices.
