ICYMI: The video effects tab rolled out on Google Photos with 12 unique effects

Google Photos app has extended its video editing capabilities by adding a new 'Effects' tab. In this new tab, users can now access up to 12 different creative effects; dust mix, paper tear, black and white film, lomo, light leak, film mood, chromatic, fish-eye, vintage, layouts, retro film, and poster, each providing a distinctive style to their videos.

How to access and use the new Effects tab:

  1. Open your Google Photos app and select a video you want to edit.
  2. Tap on 'Edit' located at the bottom of the screen.
  3. On the editing page, navigate to the new 'Effects' tab.
  4. Select from the 12 different effects available according to your preference and apply it to the video.
  5. Once happy with the changes, click 'Save' to save the changes.

User visibility to this feature is reportedly being rolled out through a server-side update. Hence, if the new 'Effects' tab is not available on your Google Photos app yet, it may be due to this staged rollout, and you should expect to see the feature soon.

The addition of these effects can significantly enhance user engagement with the platform. These new editing tools will especially be beneficial to individuals seeking to add creativity and style to their video content, whether for personal entertainment, business marketing, or any other purposes. This new feature ensures users to have better video editing experiences right within their Google Photos app.
