Add Your Snowy Photos to Google and You Might Get a Little Twinkly Surprise

Google’s #AutoAusome feature is getting into the holiday spirit with a little animated surprise. Just add your personal photos to Google Plus and the team will add some animated snow or sparkles to your images. It’s super cheesy, but who doesn’t like cheesiness around this time of year? Don’t be a Grinch!

According to a cheery announcement on Google Plus by developer Erik Murphy-Chutorian, you’ll get one of two upgrades:

1) Twinkle: upload a new photo of something that sparkles (like a Christmas tree or a chandelier), and we’ll gift you a version with lights that actually twinkle.

2) Snow: upload a new photo with snow to Google+, and we’ll gift you a version with snow that’s actually falling.

You’ll get an automated message when your image has been bedazzled into an animated gif. To see others’ photos, visit this #AutoAwesome page.
