While the future of Google+ may be up in the air, theres no doubt that its comprehensive photo service is among the best free options available for backing up and online editing. Now, Google is trying to make sure people actually do something with the photos they shoot by launching Google+ Stories. Just as Google+ already has auto-backup and auto-enhance, this new feature is perhaps best explained as auto album. The new feature analyzes the photos you upload to Google+ or Drive and pulls together an easily sharable story — a day-by-day timeline of photos, auto awesome GIFs, videos, and other content meant to give you a representation of moments in your life that were important enough for you to photograph in the first place. With Stories, were trying to solve three major user pain points, says Ben Eidelson, a product manager on the Google+ Photos team.
