Google announced today (11) the new video editor for the Google Photos service, available through the respective application for mobile devices. The new editor has some new tools and others that we already knew in this app.

Anyway, it is now simpler and more intuitive to edit photos in Google Photos, quickly and now more completely. Moreover, some functions that until now were exclusive to the Pixel line, now reach all other smartphones.

Through its official blog, Google introduced a new range of video editing tools that the user can find in the Google Photos application. They are similar to the options we have had for editing images since last year.

First, the news comes to the iPhone, Apple’s iOS smartphones. However, the American technology says that, over the next few weeks, the same list of features will also reach Android smartphones.

Particularly interesting is the general distribution of functions that until now were reserved for Google’s line of smartphones, the Pixel. Unfortunately, to take advantage of some of these options you will need to have a subscription to Google One services.

Until now, the video editor on this service was somewhat limited. However, if you’ve already used image editing options in Google Photos, then the new implementation for videos will be quite familiar. By the way, see the GIF published above.

With simple swipes and a few touches it will be possible to apply filters to recordings, adjust recording settings such as exposure and some lighting adjustments and contrast controls, color saturation, duration, among others.

To all iPhone users, make sure they already have the latest version, distributed through the App Store. For Android users it will be a matter of waiting until the same update reaches the Google Play Store.

We also have some advanced functions of more realistic lighting that, until now were reserved for Pixel, now available for a larger number of mobile devices. Portrait blur, portrait lighting and color highlighting.

Above we can see some of these options in operation, intended only for subscribers of the Google One service. Furthermore, in order to use these options, they must have at least 3 GB of RAM and the Android 8 operating system.

In summary, there are several resources that give users the option to edit videos, more deeply and without having to leave the Google Photos application.
