Photo Descriptions

Isn’t it great when you’re looking at old family photos and you find notes written on the back that describe what’s in the photo? Did you know that you can do the same thing with Google Photos? 
When viewing photos on a computer, click the i to open the Info panel and you’ll see a field called Description where you can write whatever you want. On a mobile device, just swipe up on the photo to reveal the info panel.

Watch this video to see how to view those descriptions.
