Last year Google launched 'Motion Stills' for iOS. The app allowed iPhone users to stabilise live photos and convert them into looping GIFs and videos.These Gifs and videos could be shared later on.

Google has claimed that the app was well received by iPhone users, and was in great demand by Android users as well. Google has now introduced a similar app with advanced features for Android users also. The new app called 'Motion Stills' is designed for Android 5.1 and later series.

"From its initial release, the community has been asking us to also make Motion Stills available for Android. We listened to your feedback and today, we're excited to announce that we’re bringing this technology, and more, to devices running Android 5.1 and later!" Google stated.

Motion Stills on Android will transfer everything you capture with a single tap into short clips. 

The Android app is designed with a new feature called 'Fast Forward' which condenses a longer recording into a Fast Forward video of one minute. The users can adjust the speed of the video accordingly.

It also has an improved trimming algorithm which will guard against any camera shake or pocket shots. 

Google has upgraded the iOS version and redesigned the video processing pipeline. The upgraded feature will process each frame of the video as it is being recorded. This will give instant results immediately after recording without exhausting your battery. 

The app does not offer to import and edit any of your existing videos. The videos from Motion Stills can be shared easily.

The motion Stills does not require an internet connection to run.
