Google is making it easier and faster to share photos with your friends in its popular Photos app.
Rather than sharing to a specific app, the search giant is offering people in your contacts first.
Right now, if you tap the share icon in Google Photos, you ll be greeted with a slew of apps you have installed, like Facebook Messenger, your default texting app, Gmail, and more.
The new update focuses on making sharing more personal, because it adds a layer of people from your contacts above the array of apps.
It s actually a feature that came to Android via 6.0 Marshmallow called Direct Share.
The people you most frequently contact will appear at the top, and if they use Google Photos, the shared images will appear in their app and they will receive an app notification.
