Google Photos Getting ‘More Like This’ Button to Help Users Find Similar Images: Report


Google Photos is said to be getting a new feature that allows users to find similar photos on the platform. The newly added “More Like This” button in Google Photos is said to allow users to search for similar images in the gallery from different periods and locations. The last button was reportedly placed between the “Add to Album” and “Move to Archive” icons in the app. Google recently added the Memories feature to the web version of Google Photos. With this, when users sign into Google Photos from a computer, they can see Memories at the top of their gallery with recent photos and features.

The new “More Like This” button on Google Photos was first spotted by Russian Telegram channel Google News, Android Police reported. The report says that with the latest feature, users can easily find a specific image. If the feature is enabled on your Google Photos, clicking the More Like This button from the three-dot menu at the top right of the image on Google Photos will start scanning the image. Then it will search for a similar set of photos saved in your Google Photos library. The feature is said to use Google’s artificial intelligence (AI) machines to scan similar photos.

According to the report, Google Photos will also offer to search for matching photos using filters. Users can specify age, location, or what’s in the photo as filters. Additionally, the new feature is said to offer several sorting options such as locations including parks, schools, cars, food, animals, and more to narrow your search.


As we mentioned, Memories on Google Photos for Web started rolling out in October. It will display a selection of slide shows taken from the user’s old and recent photos. In addition, users can choose to hide photos of certain people or certain time periods from appearing in Memories.
