Google is expanding the user base for its AI photo editing tools by making them free of charge, including iPhone users.

Google is enabling on-device AI for all users.

On-device AI is expected to become popular in 2024. This year’s Galaxy S24, which Samsung dubbed the “first AI smartphone” and loaded with AI features, represents the company’s full embrace of generative AI. It seems that Apple is getting ready to reveal something significant about AI at WWDC in June. Moreover, during its October event, Google touted the generative AI capabilities of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.

These tools are now freely accessible to anybody with a Google Photos account. Since there are certain restrictions, well, almost anybody. It must be a Chromebook Plus running version 118+ or higher with 3 GB of RAM if you’re using ChromeOS. Android 8.0 or iOS 15 or later is required for mobile users’ devices. On Pixel tablets, Magic Eraser, Photo Unblur, and Portrait Light will also be accessible.

Google also announced that anyone using the Google Photos app (yes, both iOS and Android) will now have access to Magic Editor. With many of the same features as Photoshop, Magic Editor was unveiled at the Google Pixel event last year, but it requires less technical expertise. Users can edit specific areas of a photo by highlighting them, or they can move objects by using generative AI.

There are 10 free Magic Editor savings on Google Photos every month for users of Android and iOS devices; to take advantage of these offers, you’ll need to have a Google Pixel or a paid Google One account.

Google Photos can be downloaded for free from the App Store, and expanded access to the AI photo editing tools will begin rolling out on May 15.
