Google Photos is getting some AI-powered features that’ll let you restore old black-and-white photos with color, and convert pictures of documents into PDFs.

During at demo at Google I/O today, CEO Sundar Pichai showed the Google Photos app injecting color into an old family photo; the grass and trees turned green, while skin tones brightened. “We can recreate that moment in color and make the moment even more real,” Pichai said.

The Google Photos apps will also suggest how you can improve newer photos, Pichai said. For instance, it’ll recommend adjusting the color with one tap or making one section of a photo pop, like turning the background black and white while making a red jacket even brighter.

Pichai also demoed the Photos app converting a digital image of dog adoption document into a PDF, much to the delight of the crowd. In a more creepy feature, he showed how the Photos app can recognize friends in a picture, and suggest that you share the image with them.

These features will roll out to Google Photos in the next few months, Pichai said.

AI-powered suggestions are also coming to Gmail. Google’s CEO showed a feature called Smart Compose, which is essentially an auto complete feature that runs as you type. But rather than serving up auto-complete words in a menu below your email, as you might see today, Smart Compose offers up entire phrases and suggestions on how to complete your sentence.

“All you need to do is hit tab and it’ll keep autocompleting,” Pichai said, pointing to an email about eating Mexican food on “Taco Tuesday” (above).

Smart Compose arrives this month.
