Google often launch applications that are US only for some reason or the other. Why the Google Photo feature grouping similar faces together is a US only feature I’m not sure, but I assume it’s related to the fact it’s done server side.
If you would like enable the these two features then Techaeris has written about how to enable Group Similar Faces and the new People Naming and Merge features
Two months ago I wrote a post about the Google Calendar Birthdays and my annoyance with Google pollution og G+ everywhere and their annoyingly bad address books.
1. Google slits G+ into photo and streams
2. Google comes out with a new contact list.
3. Google Calender now has a setting to ignore google plus birthdays
.. and this both the web and on android.
Ok, I’m sure my annoyances are not unique to me – but thank you Google for listening for once.
