Cinematic Photos

Through machine learning, Google Photos can predict the depth of the image and produce a 3D representation of the scene. And this feature is possible even if the original image doesn’t include depth information from the camera. Then, a virtual camera for a smooth panning effect will be animated by Google Photos.

Also, users need to make sure the app is updated because Google Photos will automatically create Cinematic photos and it will show up in the recent highlights at the top of the users’ photo grid once ready. And, users can send the Cinematic photo as a video to their family or friends.
