Hi, my Dad and I are anxiously awaiting the new collage feature that was announced in September for android. It’s now October 3rd or so should we be seeing it by now?

We have gone to the Google Play Store and updated our Google photos a few times and now I see that I can add nine photos but I don’t see the ability to move the photos around or use the backgrounds that I’ve seen in some of the announcements.

Andrea,

You’re not alone. Very few people have received the new feature. I don’t know why it’s being so slow for this. I feel very lucky to have it on my iPhone. Still not on my Samsung yet.

Check for the new collage features now. Both Android phones in my household just got the new features today – 10-11-22

Yay!

To Check:

  • Open Google Photos app on Phone
  • Select 3-5 photos (long press on first, tap next ones)
  • Tap the + and select Collage
  • A collage will appear and there should be a bar of options along the bottom
  • You can drag photos into different locations on the collage
  • You can select different layouts and designs along the bottom bar
