OnePlus Gallery 3.8.21 adds face detection, scene recognition, and auto-generated story albums for your photos
Back in May last year, OnePlus opened up a beta program for the OnePlus Gallery app to give enthusiasts a chance to get an early preview of upcoming features in the app. In return, feedback from the beta testers allowed the company to continually improve the app and bring several new features in quick succession. Since then, the company has released several updates for the app introducing a couple of new features like a shortcut to hide photos, support for viewing HEIC images, and a new image sorting setting. Now, with the latest update, OnePlus is rolling out three more features for the app.
The OnePlus Gallery v3.8.21 is now rolling out on the Play Store and it includes a new face classification feature that will help users group pictures faster, a new scene recognition feature to identify scenes in real life, and an auto-generated story album feature to automatically create stories using your photos. The new Story feature can be found within the Explore tab on the app and as per the description it will “automatically create your own stories while your phone is charging and the screen is off.” Here’s the complete changelog for the OnePlus Gallery v3.8.21 update:
- Added face classification to group pictures faster
- Added scene recognition to identify scenes in life
- Added auto-generated story album to create your stories
