Not only can WordPress.com plan subscribers and self-hosted sites access their most recent Google Photos images and video, it’s also possible to search by keyword. (Only WordPress.com video support plans can handle video uploads.)

The CMS company states it is “working on integrating this deeper into your WordPress.com experience, and we hope to integrate more services with WordPress.com in the future.”

WordPress recently introduced PayPal integration. Additionally, the company rolled out support for third-party plugins and themes in early August.
