Amazon Photos is one of the better alternatives to Google Photos thanks to its value, but its app has never been particularly impressive on Android. Now, almost exactly a year after a redesign on iOS, Amazon is giving its Photos app on Android the same treatment.
In mid-November of last year, Amazon debuted a completely redesigned Photos app on iOS. The updated app brought a new homescreen that was designed to be easy to use with just one hand thanks to a bottom-heavy UI. The update also brought personalized slideshows of your photos to bring up memories – much like Google Photos – as well as improving overall navigation of the app.
At the time, Amazon summarized the update saying:
Revisit memories at your leisure and find what you need in a snap. Updated photo filtering lets you locate photos by people, places, dates, and more, while a new interface gives you streamlined access to your photo collection and account information.
