Google Photos will compensate for your shaky-cam Live Photos

The latest update for Google Photos brings some of the same features introduced in the standalone Motion Stills app into the main product, making it easier to edit, stabilize and share Live Photos taken on an iPhone. Like Motion Stills, Google Photos uses advanced stabilization to create moving images with frozen backgrounds or wide, sweeping pan shots.

Once you’ve edited those wobbly Live Photos into something a little more stable, Google Photos now allows you to export the finished product as a video file to your camera roll — meaning you can actually share them with friends on Android devices. In addition to the new stabilization feature, the latest update also adds some new photo organizational features like the ability to sort photos in albums chronologically and choose new thumbnails for your friends’ faces in People.

The update is available now in the App Store and will be coming next to Google Photos for Android and the web. Google also updated the Motion Stills app today, adding a feature that allows users to superimpose text over videos made from Live Photos.
