Google brings video stabilisation to its Photos Android app

Google Photos Finally Adds Video Stabilization In v2.13

Unfortunately, it comes at a cost: you'll notice some warping in your video which makes it look like reality is breaking. The update introduces a video stabilization feature that has been hinted at since last August, and our initial impressions are positive. Tap on it to commence video processing. But now the app is getting even better with the introduction of video stabilization. Tapping on the pencil icon will give you the option to "Stabilise" the video or rotate it. Tapping on "Stabilise" will start the process and it will take a couple of seconds before the video is stabilised. And a teardown of the APK also indicates that soon there might be Google+ integration within the app. Once the video is stored locally you can open it up and hit the edit button where you'll find the ability to stabilize the video as it will have its own dedicated button sitting below the video frames.

One of the downsides of this feature, however, is that the effect is achieved by cropping the video - you won't actually see as much of the video after it has been processed.

Using the video stabilizer in Google Photos is very simple. If you want to grab the latest version of Google Photos that has video stabilization included, you can grab the APK from the button below, although the update should already be live on the Play Store. With the update 2.13, Google has made the feature active for all. However, Toombs has said that these could just be some strings that coincidentally match up with the familiar strings found in the Google+ app.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see what Google has up its sleeves that once again ties Google Photos to its forgotten social network Google+.
