Google Photos Color Pop Feature Rolling Out Now


At Google I/ 2018, Google announced so many things which were related to artificial intelligence. One of the announcement was about Google Photos, this app is one of the places users encounter this technology most often, and it's getting more AI magic. Today, the Color Pop images Google announced in the keynote are already starting to appear in the app.





Google Play Store gave us an occasional changelog with Color Pop listed, but it keeps going and coming back. Here's the official changelog of what it said:

Starting today, you might start seeing these new creations in the Assistant tab. The subject of your photo will stay in color, but the background will be in black and white.
The subject in a Color Pop image is in full color, but the background is black and white. Hence, the subject "pops." Color Pop image appears in Photos Assistant tab after updating to v3.20. That version is still rolling out, you can see the image they got from Photos below.

This feature can't be used on just any old image. The subject needs to be easily identifiable in order for Google's servers to make the proper edits. When Google Photos detects a compatible image, it'll appear as a suggested edit in the Assistant tab. Right now, you cannot manually apply a Color Pop edit. Maybe that will change later.
