After Facebook's Year in Review feature, Google has decided to add its Auto Awesome magic to your photographs from this year as well. Google+ is sending users who have actively uploaded photographs on Google+ a sort of highlight reel of their photographs using the Auto Awesome feature.
Season's greeting message at the end of the video slideshow
Users who have been actively uploading photographs will get a small slideshow of their public as well as private pictures which will come to your inbox as a Google+ notification. The slideshow appears as a video and is present on your Google+ Videos tab. The duration of the slideshow is about a minute and some users have already received them. You can share this slideshow video on Google+ or keep it private if you so wish. The images in the slideshow are also set to music selected by the Auto Awesome feature.
This is the first time that Google+ has done such a 'year-in-review'. A Google spokesperson declined to comment on how many users would get this video. According to the spokesperson only active Google users with enough content uploaded on Google+ will get the video.
Earlier in December, Google+ had employed the Auto Awesome feature to add flare to users holiday photographs. Also images showing snow were edited in such a way that it looked as if the snow was actually falling, images showing any lights were edited to show the twinkle effect and so on.
