Googles app photos got recently got an updated for android with a big cool feature. By observing the changelog punished by google, its become clear that the photo and video backup application just got faster video playback by caching the video feature at same time app shortcuts have been removed.
The Shortcuts “I’m Feeling Lucky” and “Free Up Space” were removed from android 7.1 and above devices, these features removes the images from your devices once they got backed up, that’s may be reason for most people not using it.
Talking about this latest feature, you can watch clips, images uploaded to Google Photos more quicker than earlier, Google Photos V 3.4 loads the video onto device so the video play can start immediately and without downloading it again. However, we dont need to worry about the space on device here, Googles automatic background process will cleaup the space for you.
Other than these, there are few performance improvements fixes added in the update.
