When the time comes to collect photos from your weekend camping trip, Google Photos now has a way to do so with ease. With the image repository's new shared albums, all you have to do is share a link with the folks you'd like to contribute. If this sounds familiar, Google first detailed the updated sharing at its Nexus event back in September. You and your fellow collaborators can also receive notifications when new photos or video are added to the library. Of course, Google Photos offers unlimited storage, so you won't have to worry about eating up your allotted space.

You can also download files added by others to your personal Google Photos collection, should the need arise. You know, if you're concerned a member of the crew may try to get rid of some embarrassing memories. The new shared albums work a lot like sharing photo and gallery links have since the service split off from Google+, only now you can let folks add photos to the albums, too. If you're looking to give it a go, shared albums are rolling out today across Android, iOS and the web.
