When Google launched Motion Stills on iOS last year, they provided a way to iPhone users to stabilize their Live Photos and then be able to share them with other as looping GIFs.
Now about a year later, Google has brought their Motion Stills over to Android. The new Android app is more of GIF camera, where you can take short clips and the app will loop them. You can either create GIFs that are a few seconds long or make a short hyperlapse with the feature called Fast Forward.
The app’s UI is fairly simple and in just one tap, you can get going. Google has implemented an improved trimming algorithm to help protect against camera shake and “pocket shots.” And when you’re recording in the app, all the loop optimization is done while you’re recording, so there’s no waiting to share your newly created GIF.
Motion Stills for Android is available now for devices running Android 5.1 and later. You can download it from the Google Play Store.
