Google today released its Google+ Photos app for all Chromebooks. You can grab it now in 52 languages directly from the Chrome Web Store.

Here’s the feature list:

  • When you plug an SD card into your Chromebook, the app will automatically get to work and back up your new photos to Google+ (for your eyes only, of course).
  • When you’re offline, you can still view your most recent photos.
  • Your top shots will be highlighted as you back them up, making it easier to organize and share your favorites.
  • Easily share individual photos, sets of photos, or an entire album right from the app. Simply select the images you want, then click ‘Share.’
  • Auto Enhance makes improvements to each photo you add, making your pictures look great. And Auto Awesome creates fun new versions of your photos like short animations and photobooth-style collages.

Google first showed off the Google+ Photos app at its Pixel launch, and then released it exclusively for the device in June. The limited launch was likely due to Google’s desire to showcase the Pixel’s display, which is particularly well-suited for browsing photos due to its high resolution and touchscreen support.
