The photo blur feature in Google Photos on Android can quickly blur the background of a wide range of photos, including photos of my favorite pets, food, and plants. It’s one of the latest updates to Google’s Android apps and services, including changes to Google TV, a new screen time tool, and a massive rollout of Gboard to help improve grammar.
Previously, Google Photos was able to blur the background of people’s photos. But with this update, Pixel owners and Google One subscribers will be able to use it on more themes. Image blur can also be used as post-processing effects for existing images.
Gboard’s grammar correction feature detects wide exposure even when it was previously exclusive to Pixel phones. Google claims that this feature works on the device and integrates with the existing feature Spelling function. Gboard has been updated with an additional 2,000 emoji combinations, which can attach two existing emojis as stickers and publish them in messaging apps and various online services.
