How do you delete parts of a video on Android?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

To delete parts of a video on your Android device, you can use the Gallery app. Here are the steps to do so:

1. Open the Gallery app on your Android device. It is usually represented by an icon that looks like a square grid of photos.

2. Browse through your videos and tap on the video that you want to trim. This will open the video in full screen.

3. Once the video is open, look for a pencil icon or an edit button. This icon is usually located in the bottom-left corner of the screen. Tap on it to access the editing options.

4. On the next screen, you will see a timeline of the video with sliders at the bottom. The sliders represent the start and end points of the video.

5. To trim the video, drag the left slider to the desired starting point of the trimmed video. Similarly, drag the right slider to the desired ending point of the trimmed video. You can play the video to preview the changes.

6. If you want to fine-tune the trim, you can zoom in on the timeline by pinching your fingers together on the screen. This will allow you to make more precise adjustments.

7. Once you are satisfied with the trimmed portion of the video, tap on the save or apply button. The video will be trimmed according to the selected start and end points.

8. Depending on your device and the settings of your Gallery app, you may be prompted to choose a new name for the trimmed video or to overwrite the original video. Make the appropriate selection based on your preference.

9. After saving the changes, the trimmed video will be saved as a separate file in your Gallery app. You can view and share the trimmed video just like any other video on your device.

Remember to keep a backup of the original video before trimming, as the process of trimming permanently removes the deleted portions of the video.

That’s it! You have successfully trimmed a video on your Android device using the Gallery app. Enjoy your edited video!
