Google Photos for Android getting updated video editor and Pixel-exclusive features for non-Pixel users

Google One members will have access to their new machine learning-powered effects

Google always tries to improve the user experience by bringing new features to its Google Photo app on Android. It helps you get the most of your photos by providing helpful suggestions like brightening, rotating, or archiving a picture while you’re viewing it. Last year the tech giant added a new tab right in the editor that uses machine learning to give you suggestions that are tailored to the specific photo you’re editing, therefore, helping you get stunning results by applying features like brightness, contrast and portrait effects. In a new development, the Google Photos app is getting an updated video editor that brings granular adjustments just like available on its photo editor providing over 30 controls that will enhance your pictures.

Google Photos for Android is getting more editing capabilities that will allow you to easily fine-tune your memories without any trouble. It now comes with an updated video editor that has granular adjustments like the photo editor, so one can apply their own signature look to their videos. In addition to this more photo editing features previously only available on Pixel to Google One members such as Portrait Blur, Portrait Light, and Color Pop features for non-Pixel users.

In addition to trimming, stabilizing and rotating videos Google Photos users will be able to  crop, change perspective, add filters, apply granular edits (including brightness, contrast, saturation and warmth) and more. 

The users will get more than 30 controls and one can also improve a poorly exposed video by adjusting the brightness to make your video shine. As of now the new video editing features were only limited to iOS users but now the company will be expanding the functionalities to Android users in the coming weeks.

While announcing the update the company via its blog post said, “ Today, we’re adding even more editing capabilities to Google Photos so you can easily fine-tune your memories — no expertise needed. First up, we’re introducing an updated video editor that has granular adjustments like our photo editor, so you can apply your own signature look to your videos. We’re also bringing more photo editing features previously only available on Pixel to Google One members.”

Apart from this Google has also announced some of the features for Google One members that were exclusively available to the Pixel owners. These effects transform your portraits using machine learning: with Portrait Blur, you can blur the background post-snap, and with Portrait Light, you can improve the lighting on faces in portraits. Both features work for photos just taken or images from the past — even if the original image wasn’t taken in portrait mode.

While non-Google One members can use Blur and Color Pop without having to pay anything. Google One members can apply these effects to even more photos of people, including those without in-depth information, like old film scans or professional shots. Moreover, the Google One members will also have access to their new machine learning-powered effects. The Dynamic suggestion will enhance brightness and contrast across the image where it’s needed. With sky suggestions, you can make your golden hour images pop by boosting and adjusting the color and contrast in the sky with one of several palettes inspired by sunrises and sunsets. 

As per the Google Portrait Blur and Portrait Light, along with Dynamic and sky suggestions will be released to Google One members over the next few days through the latest Google Photos app on Android devices.
