Google Photos for Android: Other Features

The new editing tools are part of a series of important enhancements to the Google Photos ecosystem. Google has also confirmed the addition of machine learning-powered editing tools. Previously, these video editing tools were exclusive to Pixel users and subscribers of Google One. Remember that Google earlier made announcement about the discontinuation of its unlimited free storage option.




Starting in June, users will have to pay for more storage space. The company has set a limit of 15GB of free storage. By opting for paid plans, users can access more storage and benefit from excellent editing tools.

Furthermore, Google confirms that the new video editing tools available on iOS will also be made available to Android users. The company confirms that some of iOS editing tools will come to the Android ecosystem in near future for the first time.




With these editing tools integrated into the app, users will no longer need to download and install additional video editing software on their phones. This eliminates the need to grant access to user data and device content to third-party apps, thereby reducing the vulnerability to cyber attacks and hacking.
