Starting May 15th, Google announced today that their popular AI-powered editing tools in Google Photos will be available to all users, regardless of subscription status. This means anyone with the Google Photos app will be able to enhance their photos like never before, completely free.

Boost Your Photos with AI Magic

The update brings several powerful features to the table, including:

  • Magic Eraser: Easily banish unwanted photobombers or distracting background elements with a simple tap.
  • Photo Unblur: Restore clarity to blurry photos, bringing precious memories back into focus.
  • Portrait Light: Enhance facial features and adjust lighting for more flattering portraits.

Pixel Users Get Even More Editing Power

While all users gain access to these core features, Google Pixel phone owners get an extra treat. They will have unlimited use of the even more advanced Magic Editor. This tool utilizes cutting-edge generative AI to perform complex edits with ease. Imagine changing the sky in your photo, repositioning the subject, or adding entirely new creative elements – all with a few intuitive controls.

Free with a Limit, Unlimited with Pixel or Premium

For everyone else, Google Photos will allow 10 Magic Editor saves per month. This gives you the chance to experiment and enhance your favorite photos with this powerful tool. If you find yourself needing more, you can unlock unlimited Magic Editor edits by either using a Google Pixel phone or subscribing to a Google One Premium plan (2TB storage or higher).
