Google Photos is adding features to encourage reminiscing, starting with a new tool that brings back old photos and videos on their anniversaries in a format that closely resembles Instagram Stories. The feature, called “Memories,” begins rolling out to users today.
Photos previously prompted you to check out old photos with a feature called “rediscover this day,” which would drop them in the app’s Assistant tab. Now they’ll appear at the top of your photo gallery as small circles that will be familiar to anyone who uses Instagram. Tap on one and it will show you a selection of photos and videos that you took on that day in previous years, starting from a year ago and going back as far as your Google Photos archive.
