Google Photos adds filters to make searching easier

Google Photos is currently testing new search filters. With this new feature, Google wants to make it easier to search for photos within the app. In particular, it is possible to search for photographs showing a particular person. To take advantage of this new feature as soon as possible, we encourage you to update the Google Photos app.

According to our Android Police colleagues, Google is currently testing a new system to easily search for images within the Android Google Photos app. This filter system, similar to the one recently deployed on the Apple App Store or the Play Store, improves the operation of the search bar.

Google now displays a row of filters just below the search field. To refine the image search, simply select the terms corresponding to what you are looking for. In particular, it is possible to filter selfies, videos or screenshots. When used properly, these filters accelerate the search for a precise image.


The search filters also make it easier to find the photo or video of someone you know. The Google Photos app displays filters with the image of a person. By clicking on the corresponding filter, the search bar will display only the photos where the chosen person is present. By choosing several filters, you can easily search for a group photo where several individuals are staged.

According to Android Police, search filters are part of a small-scale test deployed on the server side. Nevertheless, Google should not delay in offering the novelty to all users. To take advantage of the filters as soon as they are deployed, we advise you to update the Google Photos app via the Play Store.

If no update is available, it is also possible to install the latest Google Photos APK by visiting APK Mirror. If you don’t know how to do it, we suggest you take a look at our folder how to download an APK on Android. What do you think of this novelty? We await your opinion in the comments.
