A Holiday Treat For Google+ Users

A few days ago Google software engineer, Erik Murphy-Chutorian shared a treat for Google+ users from his personal profile. For those who don’t know, Google+ has a feature called Auto Awesome that automatically creates GIF animations from the photos that you upload to the social network. Here are the steps to try the new features for yourself.

1) Twinkle: upload a new photo of something that sparkles (like a Christmas tree or a chandelier), and we’ll gift you a version with lights that actually twinkle.

2) Snow: upload a new photo with snow to Google+, and we’ll gift you a version with snow that’s actually falling.

In both cases, you’ll get a notification when your #AutoAwesomeimage is ready. We hope these features help you celebrate the ‘wonder’ in winter wonderland! #googleplusupdate
