On Android, Google Photos now has a shortcut for the “View screenshots” app.

Google Photos has recently placed more emphasis on screenshots, and the Android app now provides an app shortcut to see them quickly.

When the program icon is long-pressed, View screenshots, Free up space, and Im Feeling Lucky are added. The first app shortcut you see leads you to the Screenshots folder on your smartphone, where you can use the recently updated checkmark to choose all the photos and videos from a given day.

You can avoid having to go to the Library tab first and then look in the on-device carousel for the appropriate folder. Similar to other shortcuts, you can drag this one on your homescreen.

Users who don’t back up screenshots to the cloud can use the shortcut follows another one that Google Photos introduced. Located at the top of the main photo grid, it lists recent catches and says:

This separates your screenshots from all of your other memories, but if you don’t use a screenshot straight away, you might forget that you ever saved it (I know I do).

The most recent feature was made after Google updated the long-press user interface for bulk image selection while Photos had previously launched a new Sharing menu. It was also announced that the Library will be updated, but this was put on hold to allow for more iteration.

Since version 5.97, this Google Photos screenshots shortcut has been extensively distributed.
