Google Photos makes finding Screenshots a breeze with a new shortcut

Written by admin

Don’t you just hate it when you take a screenshot on your phone and then disappear in some godforsaken folder somewhere? We will, Google feels your pain, as the company has added a new feature that allows you to quickly jump to your Screenshots folder in Google Photos.

The new shortcut is already rolling out to Android users of the Google Photos app and will do the following: When you long-press the app icon on the home screen or in the drawer, you’ll get a pop-up menu with several shortcuts – one of them is the new option “Screenshots”.

Tapping on the shortcut will take you to your phone’s screenshot folder and there are some changes in the folder as well. You can now select all images and videos from a particular day with a checkmark.

This new shortcut is a very welcome improvement to the quality of life and it works wonders. Instead of navigating through all the menus in Google Photos, you can now view your screenshots with a single tap. Plus, you can drag this shortcut from the pop-up menu and place it on your home screen to make navigation to your screenshots even easier. There are two additional shortcuts in Photos: “Free up space” and “Feeling”.

The former lets you delete already backed up photos, freeing up space, while the latter takes you to any photo or video in your library. The new screenshot shortcut is already available with the latest Google Photos update (version 5.97).
