Google Photos updated with video stabilization feature
Google has rolled out a new update for its Photos app on Android. The update brings enhanced video stabilization functionality, among other features.
Bearing version number 2.13, the update’s video stabilization feature automatically corrects shaky videos. It can be accessed via the Videos tab under the Albums page. The stabilization option is located next to the ‘Rotate’ button in the app, which is visible once the user hits the edit icon. Tapping on the option applies stabilization to the video.
An in-app progress bar will show how the video stabilization’s progress. Once done, the Stabilize button will turn Blue in colour.
Currently, the video stabilization feature is only available for Google Photos’ Android app. The company has not mentioned when it’ll arrive for the iOS app.
Last month, Google rolled out an update for Google Photos. The update is aimed at improving image backups on 2G connections and is available for both iOS and Android devices.
The company claims that after the update, clicked photos will be backed up automatically in ‘lightweight preview quality’ and will still look ‘great’ on smartphones. As soon as the device connects to Wi-Fi or gets better connectivity, Google Photos will replace the light preview version with high-quality copies.
