Wired – new feature for Google+ Photos called Stories

Stories is a new Google+ Photos feature that automates photo album creation. It collects your photos and videos into natural groupings–like a weekend trip you took to the mountains, or a child’s soccer game–clustered around out-of-the ordinary moments. Then it builds a narrative for you around those clusters of photos, almost instantly and without any action on your part. If you have Google+ auto-backup turned on on your iPhone or Android, it does all this automatically. You’ll wake up Monday morning and there’s an album of your pictures from the weekend waiting for you. And if you’ve backed up your photos from your computer to Google Drive, or to Google+ Photos, it will go in and backfill your old pictures too (as well as any new ones you continue to add). It is effortless, and more than a little amazing.”
