Google presented a cool means of sharing your adventures: Google+ Stories and Movies for the web, Android, and iOS.

Google+ Stories takes your photos, automatically arranges them, and comes up with a cool travelogue.
Google + Movies can automatically create a highlight reel of your photos and videos.

Say you go on a trip and take lots of photos with your Android mobile (the option to automatically backup photos to Google+ is enabled). When you get home, Google will give you the gift of a beautiful travelogue. Google+ Stories will take the photos you took, will automatically arrange them, and will create a cool story that you can share with others.

“No more sifting through photos for your best shots, racking your brain for the sights you saw, or letting your videos collect virtual dust. We’ll just gift you a story after you get home. This way you can relive your favorite moments, share them with others, and remember why you traveled in the first place,” said Anil Sabharwal, Director of Product Management.

A sample story from Anil Sabharwal is available here. Other stories are available: paraglider Tom de Dorlodot, DJ Steve Aoki, Allrecipes photographer Angela Sackett.
Please note that Stories will be available for the web and for Android this week. Stories for iOS will be available soon.

Say you celebrate a joyous occasion, like a birthday for example. Google+ Movies takes all the photos and the videos you took, puts them together, and creates a video, complete with transitions, effects, and soundtrack. A sample video created with Google+ Movies is embedded below. Gogle+ Movies is available for the web, for Android, and for iOS.



“To get started with Stories and Movies, simply back up your photos and videos to Google+. And that’s it. Auto Awesome will get to work in the background, and you’ll get notified when a story or movie is ready,” Anil Sabharwal added. “In fact: if your photo library is already online, you may already have stories waiting for you.”

You can get the Google+ app for Android from the Play Store here.
