Google+ Photos app now live for all Chromebooks, not just a Pixel-exclusive
The Google+ Photos app is now available for all Chromebooks, Google announced on Tuesday.
The new Google+ Photos app was originally announced in June, as an exclusive for Chromebook Pixel owners. It provided an easier way for them to back up, browse and share Google+ photos. They just had to plug an SD card into a Pixel, and then the app would automatically back up new photos to Google+.
Google had said in June that it was working to bring the new Google+ photos app to other Chromebooks, but wider availability didn't arrive until today. The Google+ Photos app is now also available in 52 languages.
Some of the more interesting features of the app include an offline mode, sharing options and auto-enhance tools. Specifically, users can view their most recent photos when offline. They can also easily share individual photos, sets of photos or an entire album right from the app by selecting the image and clicking "Share".
The app's Auto Enhance function does exactly what you'd think: makes automatic improvements to each photo added. The Auto Awesome tool even allows users to create "fun new versions" of photos like short animations and collages.
