Google Photos to finally get its long-promised Colorize mode, early beta samples surface

During I/O 2018, Google gave the public a sneak peek at a Photos feature that could colorize old black and white pictures, making them look as if they had been taken with an actual color camera. One year after its unveiling, word around further development on Colorize went silent, save for a promise from Google that the beta would be launching "soon." Fast forward five more months, and a functioning version of Colorize has finally been unearthed in beta via the latest Google Photos 4.26 update.

[Update: New separate apps for Google Photos and Drive] Photo Map lets you explore your Google Photos on a world map

Smartphones have been adding location tags to pictures for years to help identify where a photo was taken, which is particularly useful when looking at old memories.
