There has been a UI change to Google Photos with a new pop-up menu for all action buttons. When you select a file in Photos, a card appears at the bottom of the screen.
You can use this card to share, add to, delete, order photos (print), move, delete, and edit locations. All options can be found on the same card by swiping across.
Google Photos already provides a similar card with multiple options when you swipe up on a photo or video. You can access all the options without opening a file because of the revamped user interface. After selecting a photo or video, the pop-up appears. Using multiple selections, for example, you can quickly edit your library.
Google Photos already allows you to perform an action on multiple files at once. However, the buttons are a bit too far away. There are all the options on top of the screen in the current interface.
Following the selection of a file, you will see four options - Share, Add to, Delete, and Order photo. Below the three-dot menu are the remaining options.
This makes it difficult to reach those with one hand, especially if your phone has a large screen. This is a welcome change. Additionally, you can see shortcuts to recommended contacts that you may want to share a file with by swiping up on this card.
Additionally, Google's photo app recommends albums to which you may want to add photos and videos. When you make multiple selections, these shortcuts also appear. The selected photos also show your location on a map.
The UI of Google Photos has been revamped multiple times in recent years. Library and Sharing tabs underwent some aesthetic changes earlier this year. In what appears to be a server-side update, another notable UI change is now rolling out.
A user at 9to5Google has confirmed receiving the changes on their devices running Google Photos version 5.96. Users running this version should see the new Photos UI soon.
Nonetheless, if you're still using an outdated version of Google Photos, you'll have a better chance of receiving the changes early if you update to the latest version.
