There are new enhancements in Google Photos, including better app performance, face matching features, and it can also allow users to hide photos of specific people.

Mail Online reported that users can simply tap on the search button on their Android app. This new app appears as a magnifying glass located in the lower-right corner of their screens. After that the user has to press on the face they don't want to see. This will activate a multi-select interface that allows users to choose as many people to hide as they like. They have to hit the "Hide" button, which is at the right part of the action bar. The user will be given the option to confirm or undo their action. The process is not permanent and users can bring back people by using the "Hide & Show" option. Now, the image of ex-boyfriends and girlfriends won't have to appear randomly in Timehop-like services.

Meanwhile, according to Venture Beat, Snapseed fans would be happy to know that its latest update in its Android app now features support for RAW photos. Google Photos has more than a hundred million active monthly users. It is now one of the most popular ways to manage photos and videos. One of its major features is a technology called face grouping, which allows the user to scan a lump of corresponding images.  

Green Bot reported Google announced that they will be releasing the same features for the iOS and web versions. Google also promises super fast performance development and bug fixes. Users can avail these features in the Google Play Store.

Meanwhile, since Android now support RAW photo file format, Google improved its Snapseed to allow users to edit photos they have taken from their DSLR cameras. This is definitely a boon for photographers and selfie addicts.
