Autoawesome fans take note as Google staff software engineer Erik Murphy-Chutorian just dropped word on Google+ that two new features are rolling out for the holidays.

Two new kinds of #AutoAwesome: Twinkle and Snow

Just in time for the holidays, we’re rolling out two new ways to make your Google+ photos more awesome, automatically:

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 #AutoAwesome image is ready. We hope these features help you celebrate the ‘wonder’ in winter wonderland! #googleplusupdate

Sure, their gimmicky and all that, but it’s just one more addition to autoawesome as Google continues to positions itself as the go-to for photo uploads.

    Thank you so much. I think there should be a menu item to remove the snow, or it should display both pictures so I know I can delete the snowing one I don’t want without losing the original photo. I don’t want stupid snow falling in ANY of my photos.

    Click on the Auto Awesome photo. This will give you the name. Type that into the search, top left. The original photo and the AA photo will be found. Delete the AA photo. It’s time consuming but hopefully not too many of my photos will be ‘snowed’. I like all the other AA fixes though.
