Google Now loves to drop in surprises on us from time to time.
The latest is a card alerting you to a new Photo Story, which is an automatically-generated mashup of images that typically appear after a vacation or other batch of pictures taken while out and about.
If you backup your smartphone’s pictures to Google+ Photos, you may have seen some of these past creations. They’re rather neat, and can of course be shared with Google’s ever-evolving social network.
This is good evidence the Photo Story feature must be sticking around, even though Google is beginning to unbundle its photo service from Google+, recently tying it closer to Google Drive.
The story behind the story: Google often tinkers with Google Now, throwing in new features from time-to-time like gas station locations or helpful travel tips. The service is a key part of Google’s always-connected strategy of tying its services closely together across any device you may be using.
