Google Photos update lets you add portrait blur to any image — here’s how

While many of the best smartphones offer portrait mode, where the background blurs as the main subject comes into focus, you generally need to activate it at the time you take the photo.

Google fixed this in its Google Photos app. The app’s built-in editor allows you to add a bokeh effect to any existing image of human subjects. And now Google is rolling out an update to allow anything to have a blurred background: your dog, your cat, your dinner, you name it.

“Whether it’s photos of your four-legged friends on vacation, an artistic take on your prized houseplant, or just what you ate today, the only thing you need to know about focus is how you’re going to share it,” Google’s Phil said. he wrote. Or on the company’s keyword blog.

However, it’s not an upgrade for everyone. You’ll need a Pixel phone or an active Google One subscription tied to any Android phone with at least 3GB of RAM, running Android 8.0 or later.

The update will roll out to Android devices soon, so it may not be available yet. In fact, it’s not on my trusty Samsung Galaxy S10e yet, so I had to try it out with a traditional self-portrait. Still, here’s how to enable portrait blur on your desired image in Google Photos when the most versatile update hits your phone.
