Google Photos lets you automatically create photo albums of a friend, child, or other loved one. The tool uses face recognition to find a specific face in photos, and to gather images into an album. You can then share it via email so that tagged friends can access and download the file. The function is available on the web version and Google Photos app for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android.
For the tip to work, you need to have a relevant amount of photos in your Google Photos account so that the assistant can recognize faces of friends and create albums. Here's the tutorial on how to use Google Photos to create specific albums with friends' photos and share via email.
