How do you make a slow-motion video on Google Photos?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To make a slow-motion video on Google Photos, follow these steps:

1. Launch the Google Photos app on your mobile device.
2. Tap on the video you want to edit to open it in full screen.
3. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see a set of video editing tools. Tap on the pencil icon to enter the editing mode.
4. Swipe left on the bottom carousel to find the “Slow motion” option and tap on it.
5. You’ll now see a timeline of your video with two sliders. The first slider represents the start point of the slow-motion section, and the second slider represents the end point.
6. Drag the sliders to choose where you want the slow motion effect to begin and end in your video. You can preview the effect by tapping the play button.
7. Once you’re satisfied with the slow-motion section, tap on the checkmark icon to apply the changes.
8. Now, you can either save the edited video as a new copy or overwrite the original video. To save it as a new copy, tap on the share button (a square with an arrow pointing upward) at the top right corner of the screen.
9. Choose the destination where you want to save or share the video, such as another app or your device’s gallery.
10. Follow the prompts to complete the export process.

It’s important to note that the slow-motion effect can only be applied to videos that were captured in a higher frame rate. If your original video doesn’t have enough frames per second to create a smooth slow-motion effect, the result may appear choppy.

Additionally, exporting the slow-motion video may take some time, especially if the video is long or your device’s processing power is limited. Therefore, be patient while the app processes and exports the edited video.

I hope these instructions help you create a fantastic slow-motion video using Google Photos!
