Google Photos lets you redesign a day through your Maps timeline

Since 2015, Google has offered a timeline feature through Maps that allows you to return to where you were on a particular day in the past. Despite coming out at around the same time, Google Photos is only now starting to take advantage of that potential. With the latest version of the app, you get a new way to view all the photos you took on a specific day.

You can get to the feature, saw Android Police, by tapping on the Search icon and then the “Your Map” icon located near the top of the interface – this is also a great opportunity to experience the app ‘s new three – tab design. When you visit this section of Images for the first time, a pop-up window will prompt you to visit a support page that describes how Google built your timeline. The company notes that a photo could include geolocation data if your phone or camera saved that information when you grabbed it, or if you manually tagged through App. If an image is not geotagged, the location may be evaluated by Google based on any image landmark.
