The latest feature to roll out to the Windows Photo app is the ‘Choose a Star‘ feature. In this, the Photos App uses its AI capabilities to identify a center of attraction of an entire album and create a summary video that is all about that particular star. You can even manually select the photos and videos or other media files rather than allowing AI to select them.
To get your hands on this new feature with Photos App on Windows 10, make sure that you are running Windows 10 v1709 or later. To check your Windows version, type:
in the search box and hit Enter.
If you see that it is running Build 16299.xxx or Version 1709, your app has this new feature.
