Google has just announced a bunch of new features that have been added to the Google Photos app for editing your videos and photos in the app. While the features covered in the blog post are a mix of paid and free, depending on if you have a Google One account or a Pixel Phone.

A New Video Editor for Google Photos Is Out

Google Photos is a popular app that helps you manage, sort, and archive your precious photos and videos. The app also has a built-in editor for videos and photos and while a lot of the features were very basic, the premium features which were available to Google One owners and Pixel device owners greatly improved the app value.

It seems Google has added to the features in the photos app with some new features to give your photos and videos the extra touch to make them even more impressive for yourself, your friends and loved ones.

The new features include the ability to trim, stabilize and rotate videos, cropping, changing the perspective, adding filters and adding granular edits such as brightness, contrast, saturation, and warmth. With plenty of other features to discover.

The video editing features are currently exclusive to the iOS version of the app, with the Android version ready to come in the weeks to follow.

In addition, there are a bunch of new features for photos too. While these are behind a paywall, namely a Google One subscription, or require a Pixel Device,

Some of the new settings include portrait light and portrait blur, with the help of Machine Learning to help you get the best possible image with as little effort as possible.

These photo features and more are steadily rolling out for Google One and Pixel device owners. If you are coming from the Google One program, you will need an Android 8.0 or above device, and with more than 3GB of RAM to avail the services offered.

While the services are exciting to use, we will have to wait a while for them to make their way to us.
