Google is known best for its image processing software on the Pixels and other Android devices. The company rolled out a feature in early October in which Google Photos for Android got the depth editing feature in portrait shots. Now, the feature comes to Google Photos for iPhone as well.
New to iOS, adjust the background blur and change the focus of your portrait mode photo.
Just pull up a portrait photo in Google Photos, click the editing icon to get to the editing menu, then tap it one more time to edit depth and focus.

Apple’s own Photos app also has this feature. But Google’s image processing is mind-blowing and often turns out quite better than the former one. There’s also a color pop feature. Tap on your main subject and it will remain in color, but the rest of the photo will be desaturated to black and white.
Both of these features are available to the latest version of Google Photos for iPhone. If you haven’t updated it yet, you can do so by clicking on the button below.
