Updated Android YouTube App Allows In App Edits

Android / Google / Mobile / Tech

The Android YouTube app has seen a new update recently and with that update comes the ability to edit your videos in app. While many YouTube content creators rely heavily on programs such as Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere, this added addition is perfect for novices and in a pinch. The new update only offers some bare bones editing tools such as the ability to trim video, some standard “Snapseed” like filters and the ability to add music.


It’s certainly not a full blown editing suite by any means but it could mean some YouTube content creators who want to upload something quickly now have options for some quick edits. The filters are your basic now industry standard filters and the music looks to be tracks provided by YouTube. I didn’t find an option to use your own music but if you’re in a hurry, sometimes it’s best to use music you know won’t get your upload flagged for copyright.


Overall the new app is the new standard Material Design look that Google has been hocking for over a year now. Some people may or may like the actual look of the new app but I think all would agree the new editing tools are a welcome addition.
