Google Photos Gets New Update: Video Caching Option and Other Additions

Last week Google Photos version 3.4 was finally released and now it is available all around the world. You can to Google Play Store and update the app right now in case you haven’t already.

Now that we had a few days to try out the Google Photos 3.4 update we can talk about its features.

The brand new video caching option

This is definitely the most important addition of the latest update. Google Photos can now cache automatically any video that you have previously watched. With video caching you will be able to replay videos without wasting your mobile data. This update can come in handy, especially if you are the type of person that uses YouTube for music. And this feature is surprisingly fast. It has already been tested and, as it turns out, the Google Photos 3.4 lets you replay a video almost instantaneously, proving that it can cache  video files with an impressing speed.

Video caching disadvantages

There are also some minor weaknesses for video caching. This feature works automatically and therefore users are not able to control it. Also, the update doesn’t allow you to manage the cache either. Right now you can’t select the videos’ cache that you want, and if you want to delete the cache you can only delete all of it from the Settings app on your device

The worst part is that video caching might clog up your storage and we don’t know yet if the app deletes older videos in time, even though this seems very likely. Additionally, there isn’t any option that allows you to turn off video caching. However, Google will probably continue to enhance this feature in the future, so we can expect some improvements.
