Google's Motion Stills App Lets Android Users Create GIFs, Videos

Users can create short GIFs and videos and share them on social media


Google released Motion Stills on Android devices. The GIF- and video-creation application was originally released on iOS in June 2016.

While Motion Stills on iOS allows users to transform their Live Photos into GIFs and longer videos, the Android version allows users to record new clips within the app. Specifically, users can record up-to three second clips, which are automatically stabilized and turned into sharable GIFs.
