Google describes the latest drop in key Android features

The Photo Blur feature in Google Photos on Android will quickly blur the background of a wide variety of photos, including photos of my favorite pets, food and plants. This is one of the latest updates to Google’s Android applications and services, including Google TV transitions, a new screen timer tool, and Gboard’s major release to help improve grammar.

Previously, the background of people’s photos could be blurred by Google Photos. But with this update, Pixel owners and Google One subscribers will be able to use it on more themes. Image blur can also be used as a post-processing effect for existing images.
