More About Photos New Tab

See personalized, random photos in your new tabs linked to your Google Photos account, getting your best memories in front of you throughout the day!

Every time you open a new tab you'll be shown a random photo from your Google Photos account.

You can choose which albums you want to see and hide to avoid embarrassing content from popping up unexpectedly. You can also temporarily disable personalization for presentations or public spaces.

This product is not made by Google and has no official association with Google Photos.

Hope you enjoy!

Also fixes a bug where reconnecting an account had to be done twice.


New in version 0.21

Google has sunset the Picasa photos API so this switches everything over to Google Photos. This should resolve any reported issues around seeing a constant "loading" screen, or not being able to update album lists.

For the most part the experience should be the same, but due to the changes necessary this will require reconnecting your account once you upgrade, and you'll lose your local configuration. Sorry about that!

Other minor changes:

- Photo quality should automatically update based on your browser window size
- All album links now take you straight to Google Photos instead of Picasa
- Fixes a bug where the extension stopped working if you had a very large number of albums and photos
- Prevent creating duplicate history entries

This is a pre-release for a major upgrade towards what I'll eventually call version 1.0.


New in version 0.20

- History mode! Now scroll through the last 10 photos you've seen.

New in version 0.18

- add rate and donate buttons


New in version 0.16

- add ability to hide/show album info
- add compact controls mode
- fix a bug causing extension to break after photos are removed from albums


New in version 0.15

- add ability to easily copy / save images using the browser's controls


New in version 0.14:

- disable personalized photos temporarily from config page
- faster image loading when personalization is disabled / not setup
- better algorithm for choosing what photo to display
