Hi Google, 

I'd like to know how to backup only known people's images from a folder to Google photos or Google drive.

Say in my WhatsApp media, I've lots of photos and videos. I'd like to search this images and videos folder and find only known faces and backup only those particular files and discard other files such add memes, jokes during backup. Is there a feature for this in Google photos or any other Google apps available? 

Thanks and regards,

Google only can search or apply face-recognition in pictures already uploaded into the library on Google Photos (https://photos.google.com in a normal browser) - not in device folders.
