Back at Google I/O 2013, Google announced plenty of improvements to their not-so-popular social network, Google+. Those improvements were quite large, and a crowd favorite seemed to be Auto Awesome. This feature would automatically edit photos you uploaded to Google+, if you allow it. It can do anything from add artificial HDR and fix up photos to create animated photos from burst shots.
Google is now taking the next logical step and extending Auto Awesome to videos. Very similar to HTC Zoe, Auto Awesome will automatically edit uploaded video (mixed with different types of media) with music, effects and transitions. You don’t even have to lift a finger; Auto Awesome will do all the thinking. While it’s hard to imagine an auto editor working well, HTC Zoe turned out pretty cool.
We can’t wait to try out Auto Awesome on videos. There is no release date, but we’re hoping it’s coming soon. It’s just more reason to use Google+, if you didn’t have enough reasons already. Are you interested in such a feature? Leave a comment!
