Google Photos will soon offer AI-powered editing tools to users for free. In recent weeks, Google has been working towards bringing new features to its Photos app, the most recent of which is the 'Favourite' shortcut, aimed at streamlining the process of sharing photos. While the app also offers a plethora of AI-powered editing features, most of them are kept under the lock and key of the Google One subscription. But that's about to change soon.
