Live Preview Feature Added to Google Photos for Android


Google Photos is the world’s best photo storing cum Gallery app which comes as a default Gallery app on Android devices. Google has recently upgraded Google Photos with support for Night Mode theme. And now, it has received yet another update that lets users explore the Live Preview of Videos and Photos in the main feed.

This new Live Preview update is rolled out for Android devices for now. This Live Preview feature is made available on the main photos app feed i.e. on the front page. It is not available on the other tabs or sections of the app.

The Live Preview feature comes with a version 4.20 of the Google Photos app for the Android platform. This Live Preview feature is just like Instagram and Facebook platform. Here, when there is a video stored on Google Photos, this Live Preview feature will play the video without the sound until you scroll the Window.

If there are multiple videos available side-by-side, Google will acquire chronological order and then play the videos one by one. So there will be no hassle while exploring the Videos within the Google Photos app once you update the Google Photos app to its latest version from Play Store.

There are some useful customization options also available to set up the Live Previews as per your needs. You can either view the Live Previews in Thumbnails with Month View or with a larger Comfortable View. You can set the default preview from the settings option within the app.

From these two different viewing modes, Comfortable View is preferred by the experts as it will deliver a better viewing experience than the Month view mode. So we would suggest you set it to the Comfortable Mode so that you can view the entire clip comfortably.

The new Live Preview feature is already rolling out to the Android platform and will soon reach out to your region. The update’s launch date for the iOS platform is not declared yet. We will let you know once it is made available for the iOS platform.
