Google announced a bunch of new features today which take Chromebooks to a new level of productivity. The latest versions of ChromeOS has been slowly rolling out some of these capabilities, but they will fully come to light later this fall when these features are formally launched.
Photos has a new Movie editor !
The new Movie editor will allow you to create new videos right inside Google Photos.
And just like everything on Chromebook, they have made the video creation super easy for those who don’t know where to start. Just select the videos/photos you want to use and Google Photos will auto create it for you. And for those who are more creatively inclined can do it the hard way as well.
