New Delhi : Holidays have started and you, being a good planner to the last aspects, are wondering what you will do with the innumerable photos/videos that are bound to collect in your camera/devices.

Google offers help. with Google+ Stories you can weave your photos, videos and the places you visited into a fine trip summary.

No more sifting through photos for your best shots, racking your brain for the sights you saw, or letting your videos collect virtual dust. This way you can relive your favorite moments, share them with others, and remember why you traveled to begin with.

Also, when it’s less about travel, and more about today's events (like a birthday party, or baby’s first steps), Google+ Movies will produce a highlight reel of your photos and videos—including effects, transitions and a soundtrack.

Starting today Google brings Movies to all devices, so lots more people will receive these video vignettes.

To get started with Stories and Movies, simply back up your photos and videos to Google+. And that’s it. Auto Awesome will get to work in the background, and you’ll get notified when a story or movie is ready. (In fact: if your photo library is already online, you may already have stories waiting for you.)

Stories will be available this week on Android and desktop (iOS coming soon), and Movies will be available everywhere. So look for the Android update (v4.4), view the full list of improvements on Google+, and enjoy your walks down memory lane.
