Google correctly recognizes that the worst part of modern photography is figuring out what to do with all the pictures we take. And now it’s doing something for you with a new feature for Google+ Photos called Stories.

“There are products that think of photos as files, and there are products that think of photos as photos,” explains Google’s Ben Eidelson, a product manager for Google+ Photos. “But what we’re trying to do is think of photos as moments. This is a moment in your life that you want to do something with.”

Stories is a new Google+ Photos feature that automates photo album creation. It collects your photos and videos into natural groupings–like a weekend trip you took to the mountains, or a child’s soccer game–clustered around out-of-the ordinary moments. Then it builds a narrative for you around those clusters of photos, almost instantly and without any action on your part.
