Mat Honan, writing for BuzzFeed News:

Almost one year ago, Google launched a new photo management application — Google Photos — for both the iPhone and Android. It’s been a hit. Last week, at its Google I/O developer conference, the company said the app has already amassed 200 million users. “I think it makes us one of the fastest growing consumer products in history,” said Anil Sabharwal, who runs Google Photos. And in an interview with BuzzFeed News looking back on the past year, Sabharwal suggested ways Google Photos might continue to change and evolve.

I have one feature request: searching for photos based on camera model. Google Photos is aware of what camera has taken the shot, but when I search for “canon” it only displays photos of actual canons that I’ve taken at historical monuments.
