According to a report a Google Developers blog, the company has already started to roll out the Library API to developers. This means we may see this new library in our apps very soon.

For the uninitiated, the Google Photo Library API allows third-party apps to use Google Photos features. Which means users will be able to upload to Google Photos from other apps, including features such as the ability to search by date, format, and by describing what’s in the photo.

Some other Library API features include, being able to upload directly to a photo library or an album, organize albums, and add titles and locations. The API will also allow people to use shared albums to easily transfer and collaborate.

Additionally, Google has also shared a migration guide for anyone who has been using the old Picasa Web Albums API. The guide will help them move to the Google Photos Library API.
