That at the presentation by Google photos on the keynote of Google I/O impressively demonstrated face recognition of app after installing the new version in Germany does not take place. It is present and can unlock with a trick. CURVED tells you how.
You don’t know exactly why, Google provides the photos app in Germany not from the outset to face detection, – we can only guess that she is technically still not good enough or there are privacy concerns. Built a people search in the app but already and is waiting to be switched on both Android and iOS it.
Once In The United States To Unlock, Always Use
To activate the face detection by Google photos, you need to you to uninstall the app first. Don’t worry, in this respect are not lost the already uploaded photos or pictures on your Smartphone will be deleted. Then you installed a VPN app on your Smartphone, where the free offers from Tunnelbear, are perfectly adequate FlashVPN, OpenVPN connect and other services for the following purpose and need to book your no fee offer of numerous providers.
Next, reinstall your Google photos, but still does not open the app – this is very important! Now it is connecting in the United States with the VPN app. As soon as it is available and you will be kept by Google for a user in the United States, will open the newly installed version of Google photos for the first time and logs you in. In the app’s settings appears now – and also, when you again normally are online in Germany – the “group similar faces menu point”, which you of course need to enable Google launches facial recognition photos and get displayed in the app people search.
Particularly practical: The new setting is applied to your account, that is to say, it is on any other device running now unlocked photos with your login. The VPN app can uninstall it then incidentally confidently again.
