Google Photos rolls out new Timehop-like feature

8:50 pm
You'll no longer need Timehop to go down memory lane.
Google Photos announced Thursday a new feature that resurfaces photos and videos from a specific date in previous years.
The feature is not on by default. Users have to opt-in in order to see photos saved on the unlimited memory of the app.
Google Photos will also allow users to share their old photos with friends and on social in form of collages.
This nostalgia trigger feature is not new. The popular application Timehop is known to do the same by fetching old photos published on social media. Facebook also introduced a similar feature called "On This Day" that brings back old photos in a user's timeline.
The new feature is already available on web and iOS. Android users will gradually receive the update.
