Google Photos update is set to transform your Memories

Starting today, Memories on Google Photos is getting some cinematic changes that make Google “the biggest update… since [the feature’s] launch”.

Memories can be considered Google’s answer to Snapchat stories; short videos created from photos on your Photos account, although they don’t disappear. For the update, the focus is on encouraging creativity among users by giving them tools to create more dynamic works with their own photos. There is a greater emphasis on creating videos and adding graphics to images to make them stand out. Google is also making it easier to share users’ creations with friends and family without having to rummage through the Settings menu.
