Google Photos Colorize, announced as a forthcoming tool at Google I/O 2018, is still in the works and might soon roll out to users…
Last year, Google introduced a number of new things at its annual I/O event. One, called “Colorize,” promised to transform black and white photos to color. But, that was about it. The feature quickly fell off the radar and has remained out of sight — until now.

Google Photos product lead David Lieb has tweeted an update. Lieb states the team continues to work on the tool and is not rushing to get it out before it’s ready for prime time.
Lieb included an animation, showing the tool in-action:
