Google Photos is one of the most popular photo and video storage and sharing services in the world. Developed by Google, the app allows users to store their photos and videos in the cloud, access them from any device, and share them with others.
Recently, a report by 9to5Google suggested that Google Photos is working on a new feature called “Video Unblur,” which could be launched with the upcoming Pixel 8. The feature will use machine learning to improve the clarity of previously recorded videos, just like the “Photo Unblur” feature that is currently available on the Pixel 7 series.
While the feature is still in development, it is expected to be a Pixel-exclusive feature that will launch later this year. This is great news for Pixel users who are looking for an easy way to improve the quality of their recorded videos.
In addition to Video Unblur, Google Photos is also working on a new feature that will allow users to add video effects to their films. The app’s video editing function will have an “Overlays” option where users can access the effects.
The UI for the 14 anticipated effects has already been shown by 9to5Google, even if they are not yet active. Some of the effects have names derived from vintage video formats, such as “VHS” and “Super 8,” while others have names that allude to their particular purpose, like “Chromatic” for a chromatic aberration effect. Among the effects are Polaroid, Rainbow Rays, and RGB Pulse.
While these new features are exciting, there is no official word on when they will be released. However, with Google I/O 2023 set to occur on May 10, we can expect to hear more about these features and other developments in cloud, mobile, and web technologies from Google.
Overall, Google Photos remains a top choice for those looking for a reliable and feature-rich photo and video storage and sharing service. With its unlimited storage for photos and videos, automatic organization, intelligent search capabilities, and tools for editing and sharing, it’s no wonder why it has become such a popular app among users.
