Every time I open the wallpaper picker on my phone, I wonder why it doesn't let me choose a local folder or a Google Photos album as a source of pics to cycle through on my homescreen. While that functionality has yet to be added, a new integration between Photos and Android's wallpapers is live now, but it only takes input from your Memories, leaving you at the mercy of Photos' AI algorithm and what it deemed worthy of being a "Memory."

How to hide people, pets, dates, and certain creation types in Google Photos Memories

How to hide people, pets, dates, and certain creation types in Google Photos Memories

It's been nearly a year since Google Photos added a Memories section at the top of your gallery to showcase photos you've taken around the same time but in previous years. During its launch, Google promised that to avoid painful moments, you'd be able to hide people, pets, dates, and more from showing up there, but those settings were very limited at the beginning. It isn't until the recent Photos interface update that more controls were added, and only recently, did the option to hide specific dates show up. In this tutorial, we'll look at all the different ways — new and old — you can hide and disable these highlights in the Photos app.

Big Google Photos update rolling out with fresh three-tab design, mapping feature, and new icon (APK Download)

Google Photos is easily one of Google's most magical and indispensable services, and now it's getting a tasteful redesign. The app is getting a simpler three-tab interface, and the map view previously spotted in testing is now official. The new changes cover not just the app, but the familiar pinwheel icon, too, which is getting a simpler (and seemingly polarizing) look. The changes, which were officially announced last week on June 25, are now rolling out to users via a server-side switch. Every device and account we have, in multiple countries, already has the new interface.

Snapchat adds Memories: an easier way for you to find your best snaps and stories

Snapchat adds Memories: an easier way for you to find your best snaps and stories

Snapchat is where I personally drew the line on "I'm too old for this shit" and decided not to bother, but I still get the appeal of the ephemeral shares and I applaud the company for capturing such a dedicated userbase in a relatively short amount of time, despite the large competition in the social network space. But let's put my own thoughts about Snapchat aside and talk about the latest update to the app.

Rolling to Android and iOS is a new Memories feature that lets you easily access a history of your previous snaps and stories. It's accessible from a swipe up on the camera screen and can be searched with keywords to narrow down the results to the item you're looking for.
