Google Photos is rolling out a friendlier and more powerful movie editor

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Last year, Google Photos treated iPhone and iPad users to a new, vastly improved video editor. Heavily based on the Clips app originally developed by Fly Labs and acquired by Google in 2015, the basic controls for working with multiple source videos in a timeline were much easier to see and use than other editors of the time, including Apple's own iMovie app. It has been a little more than a year since it launched on iOS, and now the new movie editor is rolling out to Android users.

[Update: Google is working on a fix] Downloading Motion Photos via Google’s Backup and Sync is broken for some

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

For many people, especially those of us here at Android Police, Google's various backup tools are an integral part of our daily workflow. Frankly, I'd have to entirely restructure how I do things without the convenience of Google Photos and Google Drive/Backup and Sync.

For many people, especially those of us here at Android Police, Google's various backup tools are an integral part of our daily workflow. Frankly, I'd have to entirely restructure how I do things without the convenience of Google Photos and Google Drive/Backup and Sync. For some, the combination of those two services isn't working as expected when it comes to Motion Photos, and backup synchronization to a desktop fails for those MVIMG-labeled images. 

This isn't the first time Motion Photos have introduced problems with Google Drive.

The Pixel 2’s Motion Photos can now be exported as GIFs with Google Photos

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

One of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL's highlight features was Motion Photos. It's not something most of us really care about, and it's something I quickly disabled, but it can be fun for those with little ones. In keeping with one of our teardowns from about a week ago, Google has added the option to export a Motion Photo as a GIF to the Google Photos app.

The feature is accessible from the three-dot menu in Photos' image viewer.

Google Photos v3.13 adds search filter for Motion Photos, notifications for Photo Books, and a shortcut to set up reciprocal sharing [APK Download]

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

We're getting a new version of Google Photos today, and breaking from the recent theme, this one actually has a few changes, though most of them don't stand out all that much. It's now easy to search for Motion Photos with a convenient search category. There are new notifications related to Photos Books, plus the settings to turn them off. And if anybody is auto-sharing photos with you, there's now a shortcut for setting up the same arrangement with them.

Google fixes bug that prevented Motion Photos from being deleted from Drive when you delete them in Photos

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Motion Photos debuted alongside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL as a direct competitor to Apple's Live Photos. These Motion Photos are saved by default whenever you take a picture, allowing you to catch a glimpse of the background while the photo was being taken. But until a day or two ago, these Motion Photos would remain in your Google Drive library, even if you'd already deleted them through Photos.

Google Photos has an option to remove Motion Photos from shared pictures

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Google included a nifty (but not original) camera feature with the Pixel 2 and 2 XL called Motion Photos. When you snap a photo, each one has a short video clip attached. These are uploaded to Google Photos along with the still image, but what if you don't want everyone seeing those? Google Photos has an option to trim them out.

Google Photos has a motion on/off toggle, but the Android app lets you go a step further.

Hands-on with Motion Photos: Google’s version of Apple’s Live Photos

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Google's new Motion Photos might have flown under your radar when it was announced last week in the context of the Google Clips, but that's not surprising—there was a lot going on. Since then, we've reached out to Google for more information and, combined with our own hands-on, we've got a good understanding of what goes into a Motion Photo.

At a technical level, Motion Photos are approximately 3-second video clips that capture the moments just before and after you hit the shutter for a photo.

The camera in Google’s new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL looks to be its best yet

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Last year's Pixel was found to be one of the best all-around smartphone cameras. In fact, according to Google, Pixel users take 2x more photos than iPhones, on average. The camera tradition looks to have continued with the latest series of Pixel phones. Of course, you all know what we think about DxOMark. But even so, it appears that the Pixel 2 scored an incredible 98 overall, making it the best phone camera (again) its ever reviewed. 

Dat Camera, tho

On paper, the Pixel 2 phones have a 12.2 MP sensor with 1.4 μm pixels and a f/1.8 aperture.
