Google Photos adds ‘Memories’, a Stories-like feature , US based can order a Canvas from Google

A new feature called Memories is added in Google Photos by Google recently. The new feature helps the users to take a look at the old photos that they have clicked in the past.

What’s new in Memories feature of Google Photos:

This feature looks similar to Stories from Instagram or Snapchat except that in this, the photos will help you take a trip down the memory lane.
