  3. Write the date of the photo you are looking for in the search engine. You can use formats such as “12/31/2021″, “12-31-2021″ or “December 31, 2021″.

Ask Photos is an experimental feature that will roll out in the coming months and promises to make it easier to search for memories and specific details within our photo collections. Unlike Traditional methods that require typing keywords and scrolling through numerous results, this tool allows users to ask questions naturally.

For example, instead of searching for “beach 2021,” you could simply ask: “Show me the best photos of our beach visits over the past few years.” Then Gemini’s artificial intelligence will take care of the rest and give the result we are looking for.

For this tool to work, Google is implementing a multimodal model that allows it to not only analyze visual content, but also interpret text and metadata associated with images, such as dates and locations.
