Google Now Photobombs your Auto-Awesome Photos with David Hasselhoff

April 1, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Let the April Fools jokes continue. Google loves to have some fun on April the 1st, every year. In fact, this year they got started a bit early with a few jokes yesterday from the Gmail, and Maps teams. Now we’re seeing one from the Google+ team and it relates to the Auto-Awesome photos feature in Google+. Over the past year, we’ve come to love how great auto-awesome is. Google has made it snow on snowing pictures, made our Christmas trees sparkle and much more. Now they’ve added a new affect, which will photobomb your photo with David Hasselhoff.

Naturally, all you have to do is take a photo, back it up to Google+ and Google+ will take care of the rest. We’ve already seen plenty of Google+ users posting their pictures with David Hasselhoff photo bombing them. So while it is an April Fools joke, it’s an actual feature that works, which is pretty cool. What’s even more awesome is that some of the Hasselhoff sightings have been pretty natural, while others are just plain spooky, but it’s all done in good fun which is one reason why we love Google.

We all love Google+ and Auto-Awesome here, at least amongst the staff, how about the rest of you? Be sure to upload some portraits of people today and let’s see if we can get David Hasselhoff to photobomb you. If you do, be sure to post it on Google+ and tag +Android Headlines so we can check it out. This should be pretty interesting! How many of you are liking Google’s April Fools jokes today? Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below. You can get more information by checking out the Google Blog about this new feature, maybe it’ll be called Auto-Hoffsome?
