Google Photos is updated with a tool to draw on your photos

One of the main virtues of an application like Google Photos is that it allows us to store and visualize our images without many complications. Despite that, it includes more and more functions, which do not hinder the experience but give us tools to modify our photographs.

One of the ones I personally missed was that I could easily draw over some images and then send it, saving the original as a copy.

This is what is beginning to reach some users, although at the moment the update is very limited.

Drawing in Google Photos

As we have seen in some screenshots, the gallery is being modified to host a new function, a pencil that will allow us to paint on top of the images in a similar way to the Discover screen capture function.

This new tool appears right next to the extensions icon that we see when we start editing a photo.

When we click on it, a new interface appears that allows us to choose between several colors and two types of strokes, a marker and a brush.

At the bottom we have three options. Clear will allow us to eliminate what we have drawn; the date lets us undo the last action; Done allows us to save changes.

At the moment this function has only been seen in very specific cases and it is very likely that Google is testing it on a number of user content before making it massive for everyone. This makes it impossible to activate it by updating an APK as on other occasions, so it will be time to wait for Google to send this update to all servers.
