Google’s Motion has arrived on Android finally. It has a different purpose for Android.
Motion Stills for iOS was basically created to turn the iPhone’s and it’s the easiest way to turn on live photos into shareable GIFs.
Android not having Live Photos, the Motion Stills app exports GIFs. Basically, the app takes two different types of shots. The first is the “motion still.” It is just a three-second video loop.
The reality is this that “motion still” doesn’t display or show any still photos. It rather depicts a motion of photos, raising eyebrows over the name. The second type of shot is called a “fast forward,” It is basically a Google version of Instagram’s Hyper lapse app.
Google’s fast forward lets you record a video. After recording that video it automatically stabilizes the video to speed it up from twice to eight times the original speed.
“You can capture a short Motion Still with a single tap like a photo. It also condenses a longer recording into a new feature called Fast Forward,”
“Motion Stills on Android have a better trimming algorithm that saves against pocket shots and suddenly camera shakes.”
But a question arises that Why Google hasn’t come up with an Android app that simply took Live Photos. This surprised many, but with Motion Still, they are gradually getting there.
