Google Photos Starts Showing ‘Smiles of 2017’ Video Collage

Google Photos app comes with a new feature which shows ‘Smiles of 2017’ in the form of Video Collage. It is giving an opportunity to have a look back at all those smiles of the year. This feature is a part of the Assistant section which is present within the Google Photos app. Google uses this Assistant to show the user a collage and their photo collection.


This short video collage feature is rolling out in Google Photos over the last week. According to Google, you need to have sufficient amount of smiling pictures to get your collage to be created. If you don’t have enough smiling photos in your app then Google will not able to create a Video Collage for you. Also, many people are not getting this feature, so you can wait to appear this feature in coming days.

This is not the first time Google has done these smiles movie feature. Earlier in 2016, Google has introduced the other Assistant-based seasonal videos like the “Summer of Smiles.” Some users got this feature in last year, but this ‘Smiles of 2017’ feature seems to be hitting a larger number of people.


The Assistant-based video collages have the same standard pool of Google Photos, Video and music set which will help you to create the slideshow of your photos. The Video Collage lengths may vary, but they are mostly between 40-60 seconds.

You will get a notification if the Assistant makes this one of these video collage for you. It will appear as a card in the Assistant tab on the Google Photos app or on its desktop site. From there you can preview and save it if you want to. If you have seen the ‘Smiles of 2017’ movie appear in the Google Photos app, then let us know in our comment section below.
