[Update] Google Photos App: Turns Photos into Themed Movies

If you like Facebook’s mini-movie of photo compilation in every friend anniversary or several occasions, the same feature is now available on your Android smartphone.

Google Photos App announces its latest update making the app capable of creating themed mini-movies for special occasions like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s and Father’s Day, and birthdays. They also include options to create a movie about your cat and dog with a specific theme as well.

However, don’t expect too much because Google will not automatically pick the photos. The user will still manually choose the photos to include in the movie.

The themed movie runs for about one to two minutes and comes with appropriate music for every occasion. The music is theme-specific. For instance, you can create a “Meow Movie” for your cat and the music will play a song with too many “meows.”

There are only 9 themes available for now, but Google promises that they will continue to add more themes in the future. The early introduction with only a few themes is to make the new feature available before Valentine’s Day. A simple appreciation from Google to all Android phone users, so that they can create a special Valentine’s Day movie for their loved ones.

Google also offers photo book orders for only $10 based on your photos. So, if you think videos are not that romantic, you can order them now and get it delivered on Valentine’s Day. This service is only available in the United States.
