Google has announced some new options for Google Photos users, one of which is designed specifically for Valentine's Day. However, Google has now expanded the original movie building feature with the option to create themed movies. "And in honor of Cupid, we even have a Valentine's Day-themed movie for you and your sweetheart", said Winn. The list includes options such as "They Grow Up So Fast", "Meow Movie", "Doggie Movie", "Selfie Movie", "Mother's Day Movie", "Father's Day Movie", "In Loving Memory", and "Valentine's Day Movie".

Making a themed movie is simple. Just scroll to Assistant tab on your Google Photos, tap on "Movie". Once it's done you'll receive a notification and then you get some control over what's in the movie in terms of pictures (with filters if you want), the theme music and then you can share it. Whether it's for your partner or your children or your pets, all the tools are there to make it easier for you. That's where shared libraries from Google Photos come in. Exactly what you share is up to you, so you can share your whole library, or you can choose to share only photos of specific people, or from certain dates.And if you still need to get into the Valentine's Day spirit, try searching your gallery for "hug", "kiss", to find a few photos that will melt your heart. If you want to create your movie from desktop, Google has provided a Web link as well.
