Google Photos Hangout from Google

New Video!

I’ve really been enjoying Google+… often times I am able to post there quicker than here — so if you want to see super-immediate stuff, that is a good place to hang out!

Wondering what is coming next with Google Photos? We have all kinds of stuff in here… after a long discussion with the Google Photos team! +Brian Rose joins me while there at the offices and we decided to broadcast live and record the whole thing! Thanks again to +Keith Barrett for making this last-minute idea possible through his network!

What other Google Photo questions do you have? I’m sure Brian and the Google Photos team will monitor this thread… so share your thoughts!
