Google Photos Color Pop images are rolling out

Google Photos Color Pop images are rolling out

The image is cool, but I updated my Google Photos app just now and did not find the Color Pop feature. Google announced some new AI features that would be coming to Google Photos, like a one-click editing process, the colorization of black-and-white photos, and a new feature called "Color Pop" that makes a background black-and-white while leaving the photo's subject in color.

Google I/O 2018 took place from May 8 to May 10 in California.

This week was jam-packed full of exciting announcements from Google at the company's annual I/O developer conference. Artificial intelligence and machine learning were big focuses this year, and one of the most exciting applications of machine learning came from the Google Photos team.

Features like these are why, in my opinion, Photos is the best Google service in recent memory. During this year's Google I/O, we sat down with David Lieb, Product Lead for Google Photos, and Ben Greenwood, Product Manager for Google Photos, to discuss the latest features for Photos.

Sientra (SIEN) Chairman Acquires $25002.00 in Stock
About 956,645 shares traded or 98.72% up from the average. (NASDAQ:SIEN). 2.73 million were accumulated by Clarus Ventures Llc. SIEN underperformed by 1.46% the S&P500. (DXLG) stake by 28.46% reported in 2017Q4 SEC filing. (NASDAQ:SIEN) on Monday, May 7.

You can not use Color Pop on just any old image. However, the feature can only be used for certain images in which Google can easily identify the subject in it. With the current update, it is not likely that color pop will be included to everyone yet. Color pop should be rolled out to everyone over the next few weeks.

"Color Pop" turns a background black-and-white while keeping the subject in color.

Users that have received this update should soon start to see images like this in the Google Photos Assistant tab.

Additionally, a Reddit user on the Google Pixel subreddit said that the feature should be available in the Google Photos app once it's been updated past version 3.20. You can see the image they got from Photos below. Popular features include free storage and other incredible editing aspects.
