What is suggested sharing?

Suggested sharing is a new feature for Google Photos that automatically suggests you share photos with the friends that are in those particular photos. It uses facial recognition to detect the faces and hence suggests friends for sharing photos.

Also, suggested sharing is intelligent. Not only does it work on facial recognition, it also suggests to share same kind of photos with your friend if you have been doing that in the past. Further, if you want, you can enable a feature in the Photos app that makes your own face recognizable to Google in your friends’ photos.
