The redesigned user interface (UI) could draw in more users to directly edit their photos in Google Photos, without having to rely on third-party apps. The updated app has begun rolling out on all Android devices.

Google was spotted working on this new interface for Google Photos late August. Google Photos recently also got a revamp, with a three-tab design and a server-side switch in order to give users a ‘simpler experience.'

Google was also launching Portrait Light feature for Google Pixel 4a (5G) and Google Pixel 5, the tech giant's just-launched flagship smartphones. This editing feature uses machine learning to improve the lighting on faces in portraits. You'll also be able to adjust light position and brightness after clicking the photo, giving you more control over how your portraits look. Besides that, you can add Portrait Light to regular photos that weren't captured in Portrait Mode. This will be available for more Pixel devices soon.
