As someone who loves capturing photos and videos, you will probably be aware of the potential disruptions.

Thus, to create the ideal audiovisuals, a video editing tool is a necessity. And the good news is that Google Photos offers some efficient video editing tools and features.

It also lets users remove audio from the clip or stabilize it to provide clarity all for free.

If you want to know more about it, our article will help you discover the best video editing tricks of Google Photos.

Note: These tricks will work on both Android as well as iOS devices.

Stabilizing videos

If your phone does not have optical image stabilization (OIS) hardware, your videos might end up shaky or disrupted. An unbalanced output is not attractive, and it could leave the wrong impression in the viewer’s eyes.

Luckily, Google Photos offers a stabilizer tool that lets you add the smoothness to the video.

If you want to use this feature on your videos, then follow the steps below:

  • Open the Google Photos app
  • Select the video you wish to edit
  • Click on the ‘edit’ button from the bottom bar
  • Tap on the ‘stabilizer’ icon
  • Allow Google Photos to make the required changes after running the stabilizer
  • Click ‘save copy’ to save the new video

  • Open the Google Photos app
