According to Google, “With the new video editor, in addition to trimming, stabilizing and rotating your videos, you’ll now be able to crop, change perspective, add filters, apply granular edits (including brightness, contrast, saturation and warmth) and more. There are now more than 30 controls, but a good place to start is with cropping and straightening the frame to focus more on the subject. And if the scene is poorly exposed, you can adjust the brightness to make your video shine.”
These aren’t necessarily the most robust tools we’ve seen, but like we said, if you just need a simple editor that can help spruce up your videos with some tweaks to brightness, exposure, and trimming, Google Photos is a free app and it should be more than capable of getting the job done, and then some.
Google also notes that for those who are subscribed to Google One (Google’s paid cloud storage service), they will also be introducing some AI features that were originally exclusive to the Pixel phones, like Portrait Blur and Color Pop. These features should already be live, so make sure you have the latest update and you’re good to go.
