Google Photos is one of the best services offered by Google, and I’m a big fan of it. Google Photos is a photo sharing and storage service offered by the search giant, Google. Initially, it was embedded within Google+, but in May 2015 it was spun out from it, and Google made it a standalone app.
It offers free and unlimited storage for photos and videos but with some conditions. There are two storage options: High quality and Original quality. High quality includes free unlimited storage, but the photos and videos get slightly compressed. Original quality means the content doesn’t get compressed, but Google offers only 15GB of free storage.
Since its inception, Google Photos was made better over the time, and now a new update rolled out which can stabilise your videos. Most of the phones out in the market doesn’t offer Optical Image Stabilisation(OIS) or at least Electronic Image Stabilisation(EIS). Hence if you take a video while moving or if you jerk the device it results in a shaky video.
Google came up with a solution for this problem by introducing stabilisation feature in the Photos app. I have tried it myself and ended up with fair results, but don’t expect any miracles or else you will get disappointed.
If your phone has a hardware OIS, then this functionality will further enhance your videos. Have you tried this new feature by Google? Let us know your opinions in the comments section below.
