Easy Setup Photo Albums for People, Places and Objects

For Android Phones:

• Manage and share your photos more easily with Google Photos as your primary photo app.

• Easily locate photos by person or pet when you group by similar faces. Tap > tap Settings > tap Group similar faces > turn on Face Grouping

• Add a name to find photos faster. Open a person or pet photo > tap Menu > tap Info > Faces will be separated under people > tap a face > tap Add a Name > enter the name

For iPhones:

• Create an album from existing photos. Open Photos app > Open the All Photos Album or tap the Photos Tab > tap Select > Select all photos you want to add to the new album > tap Add To > select New Album

• Use facial recognition to quickly find photos of people you love. Open a photo with a person’s face in it > swipe up over the photo > tap circle with person’s face > tap Menu icon in the top left corner > tap Add to people’s album > enter person’s name > tap Done or Next

Find a Specific Photo Fast

For Android Phones:

• Find the photos you’ve labeled. Open Google Photo App > tap search bar at the top of screen > type in search criteria > scroll through results for your photo

For iPhones:

iOS makes it easy to find a photo by identifying objects, people, places and pets. Open Photos app > tap on Search Icon > type in search criteria > scroll through results for specific photo

Find Anything on Your Phone Quickly

For Android Phones (if applicable to your model):

• Go to home screen > swipe down to show your App Drawer > click the Search icon > type in what you want to find

For iPhones:

• Use the Swipe to Search function to search across all apps and data. Go to your home screen > swipe down from the middle of the screen > tap the search field > type in what you want to find

Find E-mails Faster

For Android Phones:

• Find the e-mails you’re looking for faster by grouping them under different labels. Go to Gmail website (not the app) > Settings > Labels > Create new label. Once the label is created, then you can label groups and individual e-mails can be filed under each folder from within the app.
