Google has brought a new feature to its Google Photo's app, and this new feature encourages people to share their snaps with their friends and family.

Google has taken to its official Twitter account to announce that Google Photos now allows users to share their images with friends inside the app. According to Janvi Shah, product manager at Google Photos, "This feature isn't designed to replace the chat apps you already use, but we do hope it improves sharing memories with your friends and family in Google Photos".

This feature uses the recipient's Gmail address as a means of sending an image to someone and can be done by pressing on an image and tapping the 'share' option. Users can like photos, comment in the conversation, and even save sent images to their own galleries. Google says on their blogpost that this feature will be rolling out for both Android and iOS over the next few days. Be sure to update your Google Photo's app on whatever platform you are on to receive this new feature.
