How to crop a photo in Google Photos app

Google Photos is most certainly the best platform for sharing and storing pictures, especially for us Android people. With time, Google Photos has never failed to provide new features to enhance the app even more. Apart from ample amount of storage and wide network for sharing, the app also provides pretty convenient editing options for your images.

Google Photos has recently introduced a new feature that allows you to crop documents. The crop feature was no doubt available before but, it was limited to square or rectangular shapes. The new feature on the other hand, allows you to freely crop your images to the precise border, which gives you the exact part of the image that you require. Let’s see how:
