Google Photos increases Live Album limit to 20,000 photos

This October, Google Photos brought in Live Albums, a feature that automatically adds photos of specific people or pets to an album. The cap on Live Albums, however, was set at 10,000 photos and videos, with Live Albums refusing to accept new photos once the limit was reached.
