Yesterday Google services were reportedly down for a long time and today the search giant has announced the addition of a new feature to Photos app called the Cinematic Photos. Yes! You read it correctly, now you can convert a normal image to 3D image and bring it to life with the help of this new feature. According to the Google blog post, the company is planning to roll out the feature starting next month. Here’s a closer look at the 3D feature added to Google Photo.

“Over the next month, you’ll start to see your Memories brought to life with Cinematic photos, updated collage designs and new features that highlight some of your favorite activities,” reads the blog post.

According to Google, the cinematic photo will give nostalgia to users about their precious memories. Google has used machine learning to predict the depth of the image and create a 3D representation of the scene. The company claims that this process will also apply to those images as well which don’t have depth information. After all the calculations Google animates a virtual camera for smooth panning effect on the 3D picture.

“Google Photos will automatically create Cinematic photos for you. Just make sure your app is updated and when one’s ready for you, it’ll show up in your recent highlights at the top of your photo grid,” reads the blog post.

Users can also share the Cinematic photo with their friends and family, the photo will be sent in a video format. There is a share icon at the bottom of the screen you need to click on it and share it via WhatsApp, email, Instagram, Facebook, and other apps. Google is soon going to roll out the update which will bring the new feature to all the users across the globe.

Meanwhile, the company has started rolling out the new collage designs and Memories which it has announced at the starting of this month. So users can now update the app and enjoy the new addition to the Photo app.
