I have "Face grouping" enabled in my Google account and I can see around 10 faces successfully tagged when I go to my Albums. However, there's a lot of other people who are not tagged, as well as some unrecognized photos of people who are already tagged.

Is there a way to force Google Photos to run the facial recognition algorithm on a given photo, so that it adds new faces or maps a new photo to an existing face?


Unfortunately, there is no such option in Google Photos that would allow enabling/running additional face recognition on chosen images. You should also note that this is just a mare residue of an experimental feature of already discontinued Google +.
