Google Photos Has an I'm Feeling Lucky Button & It Totally Rocks

Smartphones have made us all photographers in a sense, and with the sheer amount of pictures we take, it's become too easy for memorable moments to be overlooked. Thankfully, a feature in Google Photos makes it easy to revisit forgotten images and recordings.

Google's awesome gallery app has a "Feel Lucky" feature that takes you to a randomly chosen collection of photos and videos from a certain location or time frame. The hidden function is available for both iPhones and Androids, and it's a great way to take a trip down memory lane.

To try it out, simply long-press the app's icon on your home screen, then hit "Feel Lucky" (Android) or "I'm Feeling Lucky" (iOS) on the menu that appears. From there, you'll be instantly taken to a random album of photos and videos taken from a specific location or time, or featuring a specific item or theme.

If you want easier access to this feature on Android, you can even add it as a home screen shortcut by long-pressing "Feel Lucky" in that popup, then dragging it to a spot of your choosing.

Just updated your iPhone? You'll find new features for Podcasts, News, Books, and TV, as well as important security improvements and fresh wallpapers. Find out what's new and changed on your iPhone with the iOS 17.5 update.
