Shoto Launches ‘Album Swap’ To Discover Friends’ Photos And Videos
Using machine learning and face detection technology, Shoto automatically matches friends’ photos and videos ensuring users can discover and swap images taken during shared moments
Shoto, the photo discovery app that easily allows you to get the photos and videos you didn’t take, today launched a new technology called ‘Album Swap’ that intelligently matches and swaps your friends’ photos and videos with your own. The app organizes photos into meaningful albums and then finds out who has photos or videos from those shared moments. Now with just one tap, users can swap relevant content with a friend easily and without creating duplicates. Shoto is the first app that can inform users which friends have relevant photos and videos even if those friends don’t currently use the Shoto app. This insight is accomplished by leveraging artificial intelligence and using passive data to understand which albums have relevant photos accessible from friends via data sources derived Facebook, your phone book, face detection and other photo metadata. The app then groups and highlights relevant images from shared moments to ensure your album is complete with the full experience from all potential sources.
“Unfortunately, manually and tediously sharing photos doesn’t trigger a dopamine response so we loathe to do it on our own,” said CEO Shoto Sachin Dev Duggal. “Shoto’s new Album Swap technology makes it happen automatically so everyone at the party or on vacation together can discover and trade for the photos they didn’t take with a single tap – no more begging friends to share and endlessly sorting through duplicates. We’ve made it as easy as possible to organize, discover and share all the great memories from a particular experience.”
Shoto is the most frictionless way to get the photos & videos from friends and complete your photo albums. Shoto knows how many photos were taken together with friends and easily lets users share photos and create private or public albums. Photos from big events, such as holidays and weddings, and the special moments captured in everyday life, are neatly organized into albums on your mobile phone.
Featuring a sleek interface that beautifully displays photos and albums, Shoto’s one click design feature allows users to easily add friends and has extensive privacy controls to ensure users understand what is shared with whom at all times.
Shoto is available in the App Store and Google Play. More information is available at www.shoto.com
