Google Photos has launched a test of a subscription service that will monthly deliver users printed photos. The system automatically selects the top 10 pictures of the user per month, which, with the consent of the user, will be printed in the 10x15cm format.
The user can specify what types of images the service can give preference in the first place. It can be either various landscapes or photos with people or animals. Besides, it is possible to select images from any category. Before printing, the pictures can be edited.
Now the service is available in the United States only and costs $8 per month. Users selected for testing will notice a banner in the web version of Google Photos, asking them to try out a new service.
Google suggests that these photos will be an excellent gift for loved ones or "will look perfect on the refrigerator or in the frame."
But will users be able to use this application securely?
During the period from November 21 to November 25, 2019, there was a problem with downloading media files to Google Photos. Media files of users who exported their data to Google Photos during this period may have been sent incorrectly, that is, to the archives of other users. The problem was identified and fixed on November 25, 2019.
The search giant also claims that less than 0.01% of Google Photos users suffered because of this issue.
Therefore, in the future, we will see whether this service will be popular or not.
