Google Photos may soon display RAW images in the main feed: report


Google Photos may be getting a user interface update soon. Reportedly, the app may soon offer an integrated experience for RAW images. Enabling RAW+JPEG capture in the Camera app on both Pixel and Android phones will currently create a “Raw” folder on the device. By default, the “backup” option is disabled for this specific folder, even if “backup” is enabled for the root folder. Since they are not stored on the storage cloud, the RAW files will not appear in the main feed of the Google Photos app.

According to a report from 9to5Google, Google Photos may soon allow RAW+JPEG image files to appear on the app’s main feed. Google Photos version 6.20 reveals an upcoming change that will always present RAW images in the main feed, regardless of the user’s backup status. This means that the RAW file will be visible next to each image, even if the Google Photos backup is disabled.

In the main feed of the Google Photos app, the JPEG photo and the RAW photo appear side by side with this update. The report adds that Google Photos 6.20 is not yet generally available, but is expected to roll out soon.

Google Photos has received regular updates that add new features to the app. In December 2022, it was reported that Google Photos was testing a new “Search” button for its Android app, which would allow users to view photos and identify faces. The new button will likely replace the existing Lens button in the Photos app. Google Lens was first released as a standalone app in 2017, but was later converted into an integrated service. More updates on the “Search” button are awaited.
