Recently, Google Photos released two updates for Android and iOS that simplify the process of deleting media from albums and add a date/location indicator for browsing.

As you surf the primary stream, a new overlay will appear in the top-left corner. Today, Yesterday, and finally the entire date are present. Location can appear in more than one place in the line below.

The right year may be rapidly accessed in Google Photos by holding down on the scroll bar, and the month was initially displayed there. Although that function has subsequently vanished, quick scrolling often puts you near the conclusion of the month. Sometime last week, this feature started to arrive on iOS and Android.

Artem Russakovskii noticed today that when browsing photos and movies in albums, there is now a Move to trash button. It can be found on the info sheet at the very end of the actions carousel. Before, users could only remove photos from albums and had to hunt for them in the main stream.

It was an odd inconvenience, especially considering that already had this feature for years . The delete button is currently only accessible in regular/private albums on Google Photos. Additionally, the iOS app allows for rapid trash removal in shared collections, and feature parity is probably on the horizon.
