Google Photos is already well known for its impressive AI capabilities that pull together people, pets and places and edit them for you on the fly. Later this year it will add a new feature – video editing. The only catch is that it only comes for Chromebooks. At least for now.
Google Photos already does an admirable job of turning photos into fun slideshows and creating fun highlight clips from existing videos. But this is all automated and you don’t have much (if any) control over how it works. Now Google says it will add a video editor to Photos, giving you that control.
You can go an easy way by selecting a subject and then the people or pets you want to drag into the video, similar to Google’s existing highlight clips. Or you can start from scratch and create a video from scratch, similar to traditional video editors. The Editor lets you “crop or edit video clips to adjust brightness, contrast, and more.” You can even use Google’s “Real Tone” filters.
But the big catch is that this will be a Chromebook-only feature for now. Google hasn’t said if or when the video editor will come to Google Photos on Android or iOS, but usually a feature found on one platform finds its way to the others.
Google Photos’ video editor will “arrive in the next few months.
