Description & Details


Life is in motion, your memories should be more than still photographs.

Motion Stills is an app from Google Research that lets you capture short videos and transform them into beautiful cinemagraphs or sweeping cinematic pans using our advanced stabilization and rendering technology. Create looping GIFs or combine clips into movies that you can share with your friends! Use Motion Stills to:
• Capture a short 3s clip with a simple tap or condense up to a minute of video into an easy-to-watch clip using the Fast Forward mode.
• Share your Motion Stills as looping GIFs or videos directly with your friends.
• Create movies by combining clips with a simple swipe to the right.
• Browse your recorded clips in a stream, or flip through them one-by-one and watch them auto-play.

    (a month ago)

    A new week starts and what better way to celebrate it than freshen up that ole phone of yours with some new apps, straight out of the oven? Yeah both the Play Store and the App Store get hundreds of new pieces of software poured into them on a weekly basis, so it may be a tough job to forage through them, but don't worry, we do that on your behalf.

    (a month ago)

    Motion Stills was a previously iOS-exclusive app that allowed you to capture Live Photos which the app then stabilized and created loops out of. You could then share them as GIFs. It's no secret th...

    (a month ago)

    Welcome to "What you may have missed this week" where we give you a glimpse at the news from the week that was. We saw a lot of new and interesting developments this week from the apparently 911 bug in OnePlus and other Android devices to the disappointing leaks about Motorola's next flagship. But,

Cool idea, but doesn't make much sense here. On iOS, "Live Photos" are baked in, so Motion Stills just made them better. Here, you can't import clips or easily capture from your camera app. The GIFs are low resolution, and the videos are pointless (since you can capture a higher res video normally). Instead of this, add Motion Stills capture into Google Camera (for those that want something like Live Photos) and the incredible stabilization into a Google video editor.

Google usually creates useful products, but definitely not impressed with this one. My wishlist is... 1. Length of capture should be user controlled. 2. It took some time to figure out how to delete a capture. Maybe have a menu option instead, or a trash can to tap on, although, I'm not sure if they're trying to go for the clean interface look. Otherwise, nice and basic. I like everything else about it.

Awesome. About time Google finally bought it over to Android... Also why is this a separate app, this functionality can easily be incorporated into Google Photos or even the Google Camera app (which would​ be awesome). Everything created with Stills should auto upload to Google Photos (or at least provide an option). Right now we have to manually go and upload to Photos or export it to a folder that is set to sync with Photos. (I'm on a Nexus 6P, Android O Developer Preview 3)

Love it. It's like boomerang but instead of pacing back and forth, it uses loop. Its stabilization is great as I am shaky when capturing, and the fast-forward is great, too. I hope you could develop the slo-mo next soon. It would be great for devices who doesn't have this feature. Cheers!

Nice app bt could have been better if,1)App can be launched default with built in camera of my smartphone Lenovo Z2 Plus 2) Export to gif can be made easy coz it stucks every time 3) Motion stills must be uploaded automatically to Google photos. 4) Slow motion recorder must be supported.

Pretty good app but I don't know ow why Google doesn't add basic features... Saving one by one is painful. This app should be integrated with Google photos. Also there is a bug... When selecting fast forward capture option, hitting the volume button will ignore the setting and do the motion still capturing instead

Love it! Clean, simple, beautiful. But...it doesn't automatically upload my GIF's to the Photos app? I have to upload them individually? And I can't delete the previous videos/GIF's? If this was integrated into the camera and photos app more intimately, it would make it so much better. Style, and usefulness, 10/10. Functionality 5/10.
Sachet 3
Great concept, and great execution. However the app is quite buggy and lags a lot on my Nexus 6P. Also, why is there no option to delete the motion stills? Some more development, and perhaps integration into the Google Camera and this app would be perfect.
Mark 4
Works good for a nice basic animated gif. Would be awesome if you could implement the Samsung Galaxy camera feature of painting areas that you want animated or frozen as there is quite a bit of noise in certain scenarios. Also needs reverse looping where it loops by just reversing the video each time it hits the end point.
C2tha 4
This is a great app...but it's missing a few things. It lacks the native ability to delete a single creation or multiple creations from within the app. And the ability to rename a gif & video would be much appreciated! Meanwhile it has excellent image stabilization & a great simple UI that's easy to use.
Jason 4
Cool app, but would be much better incorporated into the camera. My guess is I'll forget all about this app within a week. Also, why was this released first on iOS, with the Android version waiting almost a year to be released?! That's ridiculous.
