The AI Photo Printing service launched by Google some months ago is being stopped as reported by some users. The service was launched to give users some of their best photos in a printed form through an AI Algorithm in the Google Photos App.
The service was launched 5 months back that would allow the users to purchase a subscription in Google photos and the AI Photo Printing service will automatically select the best photos from your library and have the hard copies delivered to you. Google doesn’t mention the appropriate reason for stopping the service and has just sent out a mail to the existing users.
The AI Photo Printing service was on a trial basis in the US and wasn’t out for any other country out there. The service allowed users to select the type of images they wanted if it included their faces or something else. The algorithms were designed in such a way, they would automatically select the best photos depending on the user preference and then deliver the hard copy in 4×6 prints. The users can edit the photos based on their selection.
Google sent out a mail to the users (Droid Life Report) who subscribed saying “Thank you for your invaluable feedback these last several months. You have provided us with a lot of helpful information about how we can evolve this feature, which we hope to make more widely available. Please keep your eyes open for future updates.”
While this confirms that the AI Photo Printing service will be discontinued from Google, there is still a chance that Google will re-release it more efficiently for the users by making an even better version of it. The current version reportedly had some issues in the AI algorithm as some users faced random images getting printed.
Considering everything, the price of the monthly subscription of $7.99(600 INR) which is high considering the regular photo printing prices of any other company.
