Google Photos can now tell your pet apart from other animals

Through Google Photos, pictures of pets can automatically be tagged as either dog or cat and organized accordingly. Pet owners can definitely identify with the frustration of taking decent photos of their favorite lovable pets. And that's a good thing, because it means it'll now automatically recognize photos of your pets, just like it recognizes your human family and friends.

Somewhere it looks like Google is stepping forward to compete with Apple Photos and is adding some unheard and useful feature for all its users.

Some people take tons of photos of their pets all day. Tap on "+" to create a movie of your pets.

Once you have labelled your pet, Photo Assistant gets to work and will most likely have made a movie starring your pet as well. All you need to do is give a name to your pet before using the app, let's say "Oreo" and next time when you type his name, the app will sort out all the images related to "Oreo". Hence, users might face a slight issue if they are having images of multiple similar looking pets. So if you have two Labradors, then Photos may group them under one name only. However, the app nailed photos of an orange tabby cat (who's named Pablo, by the way). The feature is rolling out to most countries now.

The service has always been able to recognize types of animals and specific breeds - even going so far as to let you search for them with emoji - but this update stands out for its specificity. So when you want Google to show you photos of your terrier dog, results you're facing may not be exactly simplicity and perfection you want.
