Today, every mobile phone has a camera app that allows users to take photos or videos with the phone’s camera quickly.

You can use the Gallery app to manage, play, share, and even email the media files.

You can capture beautiful moments in your life with your smartphone and relive them anytime you want.

But sometimes, however, we record too early because we are afraid of losing the moment, and to cut down the excess part we need to trim the video.

Now, if your smartphone doesn’t have video editing capabilities in the gallery app, you can still do this using the Google Photos app.

This app should be preinstalled on almost all modern Android phones but iOS users have to install it manually from the App Store.

In this article, we will guide you on how you can trim videos in Google Photos in just a few clicks.

Why should you trim videos?

This can be very helpful if you want to delete unwanted parts or break up a long video into shorter clips before you share, store, or send it.

Longer videos are also difficult to share due to the increased file size. Some platforms also limit the size of the video that can be sent. Granted, it is better to trim the videos before you send them.

How to trim videos in Google Photos

You can follow the steps below to trim a video:

  • Open the app and choose the video you want to trim
  • Click the ‘Edit’ icon
  • A timeline view of the video will be displayed with ‘handles’ at both ends
  • To adjust the length of your video, drag the ‘handles’
  • Once you are satisfied with your edits, tap ‘Save copy,’ and the changes will be applied.
