Google’s Motion Stills finally arrives on Android

Google finally brings GIFs, fast forwards to Android with Motion Stills, a year after launching on iOS but has a different purpose for Android.

The app takes two different types of shots. The first, is the "motion still." It is just a three-second video loop which is a sort of an alternative to Live Photos.

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

"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,"

Google's fast forward lets you record a video, and then automatically stabilises that video to speed it up from twice to eight times the original speed.

Ironically, "motion still" doesn't display any still photos and rather depicts a motion of photos, raising eyebrows over the name.

The second type of shot is called a "fast forward," which is basically a Google version of Instagram's Hyperlapse app.
