Google+ new Autoawesome feature adds twinkles and snow to your winter photos

twinkle

Google+ has added a pair of new features to its photo and image sharing features, just in time for the winter. Effective immediately, any pictures you upload to Google+ with snow or lights, you’ll get an Autoawesome version of the photos. They’re fairly simple little tweaks, but pretty sweet nonetheless. It appears, from our first photos that it does not add or twinkle the colored lights but rather just a flicker to the white spots.

If anything, these just breathe new life into your ordinary winter and holiday shots.

  • Twinkle: upload a new photo of something that sparkles (like a Christmas tree or a chandelier), and we’ll gift you a version with lights that actually twinkle.
  • Snow: upload a new photo with snow to Google+, and we’ll gift you a version with snow that’s actually falling.

Consider these a .gif(t) to you from Google!

You are uploading your photos to Google+ as a place to back everything up, right? You’d better be. What are you going to do if that phone goes missing or ends up broken?
