Google has started rolling out an update to its Photos app on Android that brings a couple of new features, including the ability to manually back up photos. The update bumps the app version to 1.18.
“Save what you want, when you want with manual backup,” the Google Photos team wrote in a Google+ post. To use the feature, first select the photos you want to backup, then tap the three dot over flow menu, and finally choose the “Back up now” option.
In addition, the update also brings along the ability to search photos by emoji. The updated app can be downloaded from the Play Store – hit the Source 2 link below.
