A few months ago, in June, Google launched a new application called Motion Stills that allowed to convert Live Photos into GIFs and videos.
This functionality is now available in Google Photos 2.0 , and more sharing options and other interesting improvements have been added.
Motion Stills lets you do all sorts of virginity with the Live Photos from iOS, such as creating still images, converting them into short videos with cinematic effects, exporting them as GIFs, and more.
Google brings new editing features to Live Photos
The functions come from Google Research and use advanced stabilization algorithms that do not require an Internet connection. Integrating these functions into Google Photos makes a lot of sense and opens up a whole world of possibilities for users who do not want to use the Apple Photos application.
Additionally, photos in the albums can now be organized chronologically or by the most recent ones . In addition, users will be able to manually select thumbnails for the faces of the people in the photo.
Finally, version 2 of Google Photos also provides an easier method of sharing videos directly to the YouTube application and several stability improvements to its internal system.
