Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG) actualized the Photo service which works with the cloud. Now users are allowed to share albums with some extra features that will improve the whole experience.
Since May, when the service was launched, more than 100 million users have registered to send links of their photographs. With the new added functions, users can create albums and share them in collaboration with friends and family, which facilitates the process of collecting pictures in events where relatives make thousands of shoots.
The new feature is already available in iOS, Android and the Web. The company wrote in the Google Official Blog people receiving the shared album can join to add their own photos and videos, and also get notifications when new pics are added. Photos can also be saved to user’s personal Google Photo Library.

“Every second of everyday, people around the world are capturing their memories through photos and videos. Humankind has already taken trillions of photos and will take another trillion this year alone” wrote the company in a statement.
