Enable Google Photos Suggested Sharing

Google Photos has become more social now than ever before and has made sharing effortless. Users can take a photo and that’s all. Google Photos will analyze the photo using facial recognition and machine learning capability, then push a notification to share and to whom to share.

If that is not enough Google Photos selects only the best shots from the available photos. Suggested sharing enables the user to share photos with the people suggested by the app, remove unnecessary suggestion, or add a necessary suggestion.

Google suggested sharing

If you want to share the photos with someone without Google Photo, you can share it via a link that can be sent by email or text message. A user with an invitation to another person’s shared album can add their own photos to the collection, which can be viewed by everyone with access to the album. If you skip any sharing suggestion it will be shown in a section called skipped suggestions as shown in the image above.
