Google Photos is rolling out a small update with a big impact, allowing you to manually select which photos get updated.

Right now, you have the option of enabling automatic uploads for photos, but you don’t get to decide which photos get updated. Once you get the update, it’ll be useful in two ways:

First, if you take a photo and want it in the cloud right now, just select it and it’ll start backing up right then. This will bypass other settings like only backing up over Wi-Fi or while charging.

And the best one: if you have a ton of folders on your device you currently have the option of either enabling or totally disabling photo backups. If you look at the image above, on the left is the current upload method and on the right we have the updated version. If you don’t want all your screenshots to be backed up, this is a perfect way to do it.

Small update with a big impact. What’s your take on it?
