To dismiss a card, swipe it to the right.

Check your assistant

  1. Open the Google Photos app .
  2. At the bottom, tap Assistant .
Under the "Create new" section, you'll see your backup status. Under that, you might see cards with suggestions. If you want to see more cards, try taking more photos and videos and backing them up.
