Starting today, an update will rollout to Google Photos on Android (v1.19) that will bring forth a “redesigned” search experience, customizable movies, the ability to edit device folders that you have created, and manage the photos on your SD cards. That sounds like a solid update to me!
In the new search, Google is ditching the floating action button and instead introducing a dedicated search bar at the top. This removes a step, since you had to press the FAB previously, before getting to the search screen, which then required another tap in the search box to begin a search. Now, all you need to do is tap in the top search box and search, right from the main screen.
With customizable movies, the new Google Photos is letting users tweak the automatically created movies that the service provides, by giving you control over music and the photos/videos selected.
And finally, Google Photos will let you rename or delete device folders that you have created and also manage the photos on SD cards, which means adding new folders or copying and moving photos.
