Google Launches Motion Stills App On Android

Google last year launched an app on its iOS platform last year called Motion Stills which could capture short videos as GIFs with its superior stabilisation technology. While the Android users were miffed then since they were left out, Google has now finally produced an Android version of the app for its smartphone users. Rush to the Play Store now to download the latest version!

Whats is Motion Stills:

Motion Stills is actually just a GIF camera with some very fancy software tricks. During its default mode, users can capture a 3 second looping clip. The app has got a powerful stabilisation capability, so the final result looks almost like as if you had your phone on a tripod.

This is considered to be an alternative to Live Photos- which even records videos of same length. The Motion Still app even comes with a second kind of shot, known as ‘fast-forward mode’, a reminiscent of Microsoft’s Hyperlapse.Motion Stills

Just like Hyperlapse, this fast forward mode allows you to record a video which can speed up from twice to eight times the original speed. With this super-stabilisation capability, you can even capture videos up to one minute in length. What’s more, you can keep changing the fast forward speed even after the video is captured and saved.

According to Google, it has revamped the Motion Stills app for Android, which includes a new streaming pipeline. This means the app processes each video frame while it’s being recorded.

Once you are done shooting, you can swipe up to see the finished product. The videos you capture in your device can be exported either as an original video or as a GIF.

The Motion Stills app is still live in the Play Store for all tablets and smartphones which run Android 5.1 or higher versions. Time to test it for yourselves!
