Google Photos is a massive service, with millions of users worldwide uploading over a billion photos a day.

Google has launched three "new ways to share" in its Photos service, the company announced at its annual developer conference. Let's talk about each briefly. This is done using artificial intelligence, face recognition and all sorts of insane software wizardry.

Google Photos has to be one of Google's greatest products and today it just got a whole lot better with the introduction of 3 new features aimed at making sharing and experiencing photos even easier. You'll be able to search through those pictures without having to navigate to a particular photo album, too, and with the machine learning engine working behind the scenes in Google Photos, any extra, non-interesting photos you snap won't be filed in there. Sounds like magic doesn't it?

Google has announced a cool new camera trick that automatically removes unwanted objects from photos.

If you share images of a special event, say a birthday with a few of your friends, when they get those shared images, Google Photos will suggest adding photos from their own libraries to the collection.

Under the new Sharing tab, you'll see all your sharing activity and suggestions you might have missed.

Photo Books are available on the desktop version of Photos today, and coming to Android and iOS sometime in the next two weeks. You'll feel obligated - and you'll feel JUST TERRIBLE if you don't share!

Shared Libraries can be grouped among any number of users, or suggested based on your closest friends and family.

Now You: Do you find these features useful? In short, when Photos detects a given person, it automatically shares it with a pool of people the user has chosen beforehand.

Shared Libraries is a new menu option allowing you to automatically share photos with your contacts.

Although sharing a digital image is a piece of cake these days, but nothing beats the age-old physical copy no matter what. The service offers the ability to upload unlimited high quality photos, though storage space is limited for full-resolution photos.

In other words, the app will tell you that you're a bad person for trying to keep all your photos to yourself. Photo Books will start at $9.99 for a 20-page softcover book and $19.99 for a hardcover book. That social network focused heavily on photos, but its public-first approach was off-putting for many people who were anxious about privacy.

Google is in the business of you.
