Earlier this month, Google announced that it would be adding recent highlights, memories, and designs and now as the year is coming to an end, Google have also included a “Year in Review” highlight and lets you generate a 2020 photo book.

The “Year in review” will show users a recap of the last 12 months through photos, as reported by 9to5Google. The feature will first be available in the Memories carousel on both Android and iOS with no option for the web. You can tap the edges of the screen to move forward or backward while a long press and hold would do pauses. The date and location of the photos are available on the top with an overflow button to view all the photos for that day.

The “Preview book” feature lets you create an annual photo book with a few photos that you might like already added to the memories. You can edit this book by adding or removing photos from each page. The preview book also has a ‘Cover and spine' and an ‘Inside cover' feature that can be edited as well.

The feature is not yet available to all the users and is seen to have been rolling out in phases. There are a few users on Twitter reporting that the feature is accessible on their device. Also, this time around the naming scheme of the yearbook has changed a bit, as up until 2019 the photo creation toll was called the “Best of 20XX”, while for this year it seems to have a plain and simple “Year in review”. Nonetheless, you can change the name of the photo book yourself.
