Google Photos gets ‘Archive’ option

by May 25, 2017 0 comments

Google has started rolling out an update for its Photos on Android and iOS. The update brings a new ‘Archive’ feature that enables users to take certain pictures from their image feed and move them to a separate section in the app. The update was first spotted by 9To5Google website.

Users just need to select an image and tap on the three dots option on the top-right section of the main screen. Once done, they’ll get an option to archive that particular image. Users can find the archived images via the slide-out menu on the left side. However, the archived images will appear in both albums and search results.

The only advantage of the ‘Archive’ functionality is that the archived images won’t be shown in the image feed.

Recently, Facebook-owned Instagram also rolled out a similar archiving feature for its iOS and Android apps. It enables users to hide certain posts from their profile, without actually deleting them.

Using the new option, users can temporarily hide posted pictures/videos from their Instagram profiles. To do so, they simply have to click on the menu button on a photo and they’ll see an ‘Archive’ button. Once it’s tapped, the photo/video will be moved to the archive and will no longer show up on the profile.

Users can find the ‘Archive’ icon next to the Discover people option in their profile. Tapping on it will also allow the users to see all the posts they have archived. Users will also be able to choose an archived photo/video and share it on their profile again.
