Google Photos Now Lets You Create ‘Love Story’ Movies Using Your Memories


Google Photos has now added the ability to let you produce Love Story movies using your old but gold memories. The new change comes through the Google Assistant integration within the Photos app that offers a dedicated ‘Love Story’ theme to join your romantic shots together along with a soothing background. The latest theme sits alongside the nine existing themes, including a Valentine’s Day Movie theme that Google brought in February. Google Photos also notably includes the Meow Movie and Doggie Movie as the two pet-focused themes to let you showcase your love with pets – of course, in addition to your partner.

To create a Love Story film, go to Assistant tab from the bottom of the Google Photos app and then tap Movie from the Create new section. After that, hit the Love Story card to begin the action. The theme requires a large number of photos of you and your partner to create new movies. Also, you need to enable the face grouping feature on Google Photos to let the Assistant detect the faces of both of you.

Once Google Photos gets the relevant images, you can edit the shots using the recently added enhanced video editing capabilities. You can also add new photos or videos to the timeline or change the background theme music from the preset option that a similar acoustic guitar music that first arrived on the Valentine’s Day theme.

As Google Photos is available as a cross-platform app, the Love Story movies can be created on devices running Android and iOS or directly through the Web. The new theme was first spotted by folks at 9to5Google.

Earlier this month, Google Photos got a Progressive Web App (PWA) existence on Android and desktops. Google also last month brought a feature to mark select photos as ‘Favourite’. The Photos app is also set to receive the ability to ‘Like’ photos shared by your friends or acquaintances.
