Google Photos Will Now Automatically Adjust The White Balance Of Photos

Google Photos is getting a tweak that will automatically adjust the white balance on your photos. While this seems small, it can significantly improve your yellowish indoor shots.

To check out the new white balance feature, open up a photo in Photos, tap the edit button and then tap the “Auto” option. This will adjust the saturation, exposure and now the while balance as well.

The new auto white balance feature should be available on both the web and most Android devices right now, with the iOS app following suit soon.
