Tech giant Google has announced that it has started rolling out new video editing features in its photo sharing and storage service Google Photos on Chromebooks. It’s not an advanced movie editor by any means, but it should be fun to work with if you just want to do some simple editing to a video.
“Google Photos integrates with Chromebook’s Gallery and Files apps, so you can seamlessly access and edit images and videos from your Chromebook in Google Photos,” the tech giant said on a support page on Thursday.
Modified filmmaking tools allow users to create their own movies from scratch or from suggested themes. To create a movie, users just need to search for “movie” on their ChromeOS launcher, and they’ll find a shortcut to the Photos app. You can alternatively open the app manually through navigation.
With the suggested themes, users can easily create high-quality movies. There will be several templates to choose from, tapping on one of which will automatically adjust the photos and videos for your movie. With Google’s algorithm, some key moments of your video will be automatically selected to make long videos short.
“Select the theme and the people (or pets!) you want to include and Google Photos will use both the video clips and photos to create a custom movie,” the company said. “It also intelligently selects the most meaningful moments from your longer videos,” it added.
The new movie editor in the Photos app on Chromebook is a cool way to edit videos and make movies out of them. It is useful for farewell video of your college year or as a surprise video of congratulations for a family member. But if you’re hoping for more advanced tools that offer more granular control over videos, you should look for better alternatives, some of which are still not available on ChromeOS.
