Keep your favorite photos up to date with Live Albums 2 Recommended Answers 137 Replies 5149 Upvotes

Live Albums take the work out of sharing by letting you create an album that automatically updates based on rules you set, e.g. automatically add photos of certain people as you take them. You can share a Live Album with anyone you want, just like any other album in Google Photos. For example, you can create a live album for your family, and all of your family members can automatically add their own photos of a family to it on an ongoing basis.

A live album is just a regular album but with auto-add rules applied. The only prerequisite for a Live Album to work is to enable Face Tagging.  

Auto-Add Rules:
When you create a new album, we will surface an option to auto-add photos to the album instead of manually adding photos. This flow will appear everywhere there is a “Create album” or “create shared album” option.

There are two basic flows to create a live album: 
  • Create a new album with auto-add rules. All existing and future photos that match the rules will be added.
  • Turn on auto-add rules in an existing album. By default, only future photos that match the rules will be added.
More info on how to create a live album

What happens if I select multiple people to auto-add photos of?
Any photo containing any of the selected people will be added, including photos with other people. If you want a way to remove others from photos, a way to mitigate this is to Remove a face group, but that will remove all instances of this person/pet.

I have created a number of live albums already, but one of them exceeds 10,000 which seems to be a limit, so no new photos are being added to the album.  As the album is based on faces, I cannot see how I can change this so that it works - any chance that the limit be removed or moved significantly beyond 10,000?

google tries to create live album  but the limitations are poor for those who have a lot of pictures.  i pay for storage but I am capped at what seems to be 10,000 photos so my live album to share with my family is useless since i have tons of photos and well over 10,000 of my family.   I was hopeful for this live album update but now it just have to hope they update it again for those who pay and take full advantage of google products. unfortunately i don't believe this problem affects a lot of users so no sure it will ever be fixed. hence making live albums useless for those who have a lot of photos.

IT is interesting because I have the original "family" album shared with my wife - I do not know how they work that, but there is no limit there - I just keep on sharing. I don't know why one would be limited and the other not.  I am not sure the reason for the limitation - but I do know that previously albums were limited to a very poor 2,000 photos.

I think it's a simple fix for them like you said I could share my whole photo library with another account but it seems like they capped this at 10,000

Love the new feature but I am easily hitting the 10,000 limit for all three kids. If the 10K limit can't be removed, adding a date range filter would allow us to fill up one album and start a new one with just photos as of a certain date. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Good feature. I love it.. but there is a serious issue. Anyone with the link to album can access it. and it doesn't require google account. If the link leaked out, all the family photos will be exposed to any stranger on internet. I will be very happy if u guys can limit the sharing to the specific people than whole world. thanks

I have unsubscripted from this because I was awaiting an answer, and all I get is garbage replies from bots or stupid people (not sure which).

My live albums are all broken - stuck at 10K and not adding new photos... is a fix coming or is this intended operation?  I do not see mention of a limit anywhere regarding this feature.

I wish someone would reply to all the messages I've sent about my emails that somehow were deleted and I'm the only person who has access,  so nobody else could have deleted them. I told you many times I desperately need those for evidence in a  ongoing lawsuit but that still didn't get a response. Nice to know how much you care about the people who use your apps and have so many problems with them and still get a response. Google photos has told me from the time I first started using that app that I had used up my 15g of storage and I had just started. And have continued over  all this time. I was lucky one time a nice guy took care of the problem with my photos and then they continued to get backed up.

Don't show photos with my Ex in them in this Live Album - Please add a critical sub-feature I'll call "Show photos of me but not with my Ex". As a user of a home hub who is using the "Live Album" / Family & Friends" ambient feature to show google photo images of selected people,
I want to be able to select people NOT to show so no images are shown which include those other people so that I can show photos of myself that do not have photos of me with an ex-girlfriend so that my current girlfriend/wife/boyfriend/husband is not bummed-out the undesirable person on our Home Hub. I would have a set of people to include photos of and also an optional list of other selected people who should never have a photo of them shown from this Live Album even if such photo had one of the "show" people list in them. This is critical.

This is a great start, but I wish there are more refined ways to categorize photos.  Two additional AND / OR fields would be geolocation and timeframe.  It's a massive time saver to auto add photos from all sources based on time and location and people.  Think "Nov 2018, San Francisco, me & mom & dad".  That's basically your thanksgiving album right there.

I want to create a shared album that multiple people are able to automatically add photos of a couple of people. From what I can tell, only the person that *creates* the shared album gets to add existing photos, and everyone else joins the album can automatically add, but only future photos, not existing. Is there any way for those that joined the shared album to add existing photos of certain people?
