“Motion Stills on Android also comes with an improved trimming algorithm that guards against pocket shots and accidental camera shakes.”

Google said in its blog post

“You can capture a short Motion Still with a single tap like a photo, or condense a longer recording into a new

feature we call Fast Forward,”

The app takes two different types of shots.

  1. “motion still.” It is just a three-second video loop which is a sort of an alternative to Live Photos.
  2. “fast forward,” which is basically a Google version of Instagram’s Hyperlapse app.

The Motion Stills app is compatible with devices running Android 5.1 Lollipop and later versions. The search giant says that the feedback from this app can further allow it to integrate some of the appreciated features to other apps like Google Photos.
