Smartphone cameras are getting better and better over time with every smartphone upgrade. These upgrades are not only allowing users to take stunning images but are also aiding to capture some quality videos as well. In 2017 now, 4k seems to be more or less the standard in all the flagships. However, although the footage is crispy clear, the stabilization is where most smartphones are falling behind. Not all the smartphone camera are stabilized and hence Google Photos is bringing a new feature in its latest update.

Yes, the Google Photos app is getting a huge update that brings in a ton of new options. However, one of the options which is pretty much going to be a game-changer is the ability to stabilize your videos post-capturing it from within the app. This new feature will supposedly make your shaky and jittery videos look buttery smooth and surprisingly the results are quite stunning. The Folks over at Android Police have tested it out and it is indeed quite good at what it does.

One thing which you need to note here is the fact that since we are talking about software stabilization, the quality is definitely going to go down a bit. However, once you see the final result, it all seems to be worth the hassle. If you want to see the app in action and the final result, then be sure to check out this video.

To know what the actual footage was, check out the footage embeded down below to know the difference.

How impressive is that? If you wish to get this level of stabilization for your pre recorded videos, then all you have to do is, get the version 2.13 of Google Photos. Once you have the app, select the video which you want to edit and then open it via the app. Tap on the pen button at the bottom to start editing it. There will be a Stabilize button at the bottom and thats what is going to do the magic trick for you. Do make a note that the duration for it to finish stabilizing it will depend on the length of the video.

Having said that, be sure to let us know what do you think about this.

    It is impressive.
    Google should also launch a good Camera app for all because even with good hardware most of the smartphone manufacturers are not able to utilise it because of poor camera software optimisation.
