With Google Photos, every update moves it closer to that perfect photo app that everyone truly can’t get enough of. The latest update has once again taken the app a level ahead of rival apps with an automatic video stabilizing feature.
The latest update, according to The Verge, has the capability of automatically stabilizing videos in your camera roll with just a tap. Updating Google Photos with stabilization feature turns the app into one of the best you can get when it comes to shooting a top quality video. If you have a phone that lacks steadying anything, now you have the right app to stabilize things and help turn your shots to professional works.
Actually, and as you would expect, the stabilized video is cropped a bit, but the good thing is that the original video clip remains in your Photos library. Want to have a firsthand view of what the new feature looks like? Here is a demo video for your viewing pleasure:

One thing the new stabilizing feature won’t do for you is, turn your rough or improperly shot videos into a perfect one. So, you have a role to play to make your videos come good when using the feature. Don’t expect all videos in your camera roll to come good; especially those ones that are not properly shot from start.
Google Photos recently added a functionality that automatically corrects the white balance in any image you open. This will solve a lot of stress and make your picture look like that of a pro. It means you no longer need a third-party tool in the form of an editing tool to correct off tones.
Auto white balance has already rolled out to both Android and web; but iOS users may have to wait a little longer. A few other editing tools were also added to the app, and include the following:
Quick rotate: with Quick rotate, you no longer have to enter the editor. Simply use the shortcut Shift+R on web. Alternatively, in the Assistant tab of the app, you may see suggested rotations for your sideways photos.
Easily and quickly apply edit on web: you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+C / ⌘+C to copy the edit, or select “Copy edits” in the overflow menu next to “Done” to apply the same set of edits to more than one photo. From there, “you can then open another photo in the editor (use arrow keys to open next/previous), then use keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V / ⌘+V, or select “Paste edits” to apply them to the shot.”
A couple of weeks after adding auto-correcting feature, Google Photos added another feature that makes it easier to back up your photos no matter the connection.
The new feature, which came alongside updates to Allo, Duo and Maps, will help you store, organize and share your photos and videos without stress. It doesn’t matter where you are and the type of connection available to you; the new automatic and faster backup feature makes it easier to back up your lovely photos.
