Find screenshots in Google Photos quickly with this feature

Don't you hate when you need an image immediately, but it's buried deep within your library? There's a handy new shortcut for Google Photos that eliminates the hassle of digging around looking for screenshots. It should appear automatically, but if it doesn't, you need to carry out a few extra steps to get it. Here's how you can quickly find screenshots in Google Photos.

How to quickly find screenshots in Google Photos

  1. Open Google Play Store on your Android phone.
  2. Search for Google Photos.
  3. Update Google Photos to version 5.68.0.410913581.

  4. Open Google Photos after updating to check if screenshots appear at the top.
  5. If you don't see the shortcut, take a screenshot.
  6. Open Google Photos again and you will see the screenshots shortcut on top of your gallery.

The screenshots shortcut appears automatically once you have updated Google Photos. Note that your Google Photos app must be on version 5.68.0.410913581 to get it, though. Google started rolling out the screenshots shortcut on November 19, 2021, so it's possible that some phones may not have gotten it yet. In that case, there's nothing to do but wait until your phone receives the feature.

Our top equipment picks

Google Photos is an outstanding specimen of a gallery app. Apart from mastering the art of displaying, backing up, and sharing your media files, it also makes for a brilliant photo editing app. Google's Pixel phones are famously good at capturing shots due to their powerful processing capabilities. So even if you don't own a Pixel device, you can still harness some of that processing goodness via Google Photos.

Google Photos gives you 15GB of free cloud storage as part of your overall Google account's memory allowance without spending a dime. Then there are really cool features like sharing images in-app or designing and ordering prints, posters, or photo books of your images right through the Google Photos app.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
