Google Photos adds DIY themed movies and photo books

The Valentine's Day Movie theme will create a themed movie from the user's photos, one featuring their significant other; it'll be like the video shown below.

Making a themed movie is simple: just open the Google Photos app, go to the Assistant tab, and tap Movie to get started. From there, you will be prompted to choose your theme and the people (or pets) that will be featured.

In the past, Google Photos would automatically create the movies based on stored images that are linked into special occasions, however users can now custom-make their movies. Then sit back while Google's machine learning algorithms select the relevant photos, sets the soundtrack, and stitches it all together.

Since the Kirin 970 SoC comes with neural-network processor unit (NPU), it can handle tasks related to AI and deep learning. Huawei's P20 and P20 Plus , on the other hand, might have the honor to be the first smartphones with three main cameras.

As Valentine's Day is approaching, you can make a custom movie with the new Valentine's Day theme.

Themed movies are now rolling out in most countries to both users of Android and iOS.

Themed movies aside, Google is also introducing the option to directly purchase a photo book for users in Canada and the US. Once it's done you'll receive a notification and then you get some control over what's in the movie in terms of pictures (with filters if you want), the theme music and then you can share it. With books starting at just $9.99, they're a great gift for anyone, from your Galentine to your dad.
