Google has just announced its GIF-making app Motion Stills is finally coming to Android. So far, the app has been available only on iOS, since it used the OS’s Live Photos option to create the GIFs. This is also one reason why the tech giant couldn’t bring it to its main platform until now.
What does Motion Stills do?
Now, Google thought it was high time we could use Motion Still on Android as well, so the app is already available for free on Google Play Store. If you’re not familiar with what the app does, it lets you record short videos and then turn them into different things.
These things range from dramatic cinemagraphs, which are photos with certain moving elements, to sweeping cinematic pans, which relies on the great stabilization capabilities of the app. Given these technologies, it’s clear you can also create GIFs, and short movies are also on the list.
The Android version has a few refinements
However, the Android version of Motion Stills will come with a few updates. A new interface allows you to take a quick snapshot while recording by just tapping the screen. Also, after you’ve finished recording, you can compress the entire video into a fast-forward one.
What is great about Motion Stills is the fact that it’s quite a sophisticated filming tool. It uses advanced algorithms to make the video more professional by removing accidental movements or anything that might affect the recording. Also, you can use the tool even if you don’t have an internet connection.
Google claimed the app received both a functional and visual redesign. This means the app will now process each individual frame of the recording while you are filming. In other words, your GIFs should now be generated more quickly, and will have a better quality. If this made you curious, go and download Motion Stills and have fun with GIFs.
