    Yesterday, we wrote about how you can now upload your Facebook photos and videos to Google Photos. Today, Google announced another feature that adds even more functionality to its photo management service — the ability to chat within the Google Photos app.

    When users share a photo or video within Google Photos, they can now add them to an ongoing conversation in the app where they can easily like and comment on them. Users can even save photos and videos from these conversations to their own gallery without any loss in image quality.

    No, this feature is not designed to replace your existing chat apps, and all conversations are private. This just adds a subtle usability tweak to the app and encourages users to share photos with close family and friends more often.

    This Google Photos chat feature is gradually rolling out over the next week, and it will work across Android, iOS, and web apps.
