Apple is bringing a few changes to the Photos web app on iCloud.com The enhancements would include a new Photos section with improved navigation tools which we're already familiar with in the native Photos app on macOS Sierra. Moreover, the interface is also a subject to change and looks more like what you would find in macOS Sierra. So what else is Apple bringing to its Photos web app found on iCloud.com? Let's see some of the changes to be included in the platform.
Apple Improving Photos Web App On iCloud.com
As it has been discovered by MacMagazine, the Photos section in the beta website now includes a dedicated sidebar for navigational presentations. It also shows the complete album list which makes it easier to jump between them if you have categorized your photos. Currently on iCloud.com, photo albums are located in a tab bar on the upper part of the Photos next to a user's moments.
Apart from this, the update will also bring the ability to choose multiple photos from the album select toolbar. The action buttons can then be used to add, share, remove or download albums. It can be said that the update contributes to the navigation aspect of the Photos web app on iCloud.com.
Other than this, there are further options available within each album. Once you will click on a particular photo, you will be presented with a scroll-able thumbnail of the complete album content. This will further provide easy navigation and will be pretty much handy if you have a huge photo collection.
Henceforth, we can say that the upcoming update is strictly prohibited to navigational purposes and presentation. Other than this, there are no additional features part of the coming update. macOS Sierra's Photos features like Memories and Faces are also not coming with the forthcoming update. At this point in time, we can just wait for a bigger update carrying additional features on the iCloud.com beta website.
Apple tests new features before launching them on the beta.iCloud.com before it finally launches them to the public. So we will be able to make use of the said features very soon everyone. Even though the changes to be introduced are not ground breaking, they definitely bring easy navigation controls to the table. Moreover, it's good to see Apple gradually updating its Photos web app.
This is it for now, folks. What are your thoughts on the upcoming changes to be added in iCloud.com Photos web app? Do you think these navigation controls should have been added a long time ago? Share your thoughts in the comments.
