    After teasing movie editing tools for Chromebooks last year, Google is finally starting to roll out the features through the Google Photos app. The new Google Photos movie editing tool is arriving for all Samsung Galaxy and other Chromebooks. With this new tool, users will be able to tweak the videos on their Chromebooks and make them social media-ready.

    As per the official community post, Google announced that the new movie editing features are rolling out for the Google Photos app on Chromebooks. Google adds that with these video editing tools, you can seamlessly use images and videos from your Chromebook and edit in Google Photos.

    Chromebook users using the Google Photos app will have two options with this new movie editing tool. You can either edit your videos from scratch or use a suggested theme. If you decide to edit videos all by yourself, then you will have to nitpick and edit your videos your way by selecting the filters, adding portrait blur, changing the sky, adding text, adding music, and more.

    However, if you opt for a suggested theme, then Google Photos will select the videos and images based on your theme and make a video out of it. You will still be able to remove/add the picks.

    The Galaxy experience can be messy for first-time users

    Some say it's always better to have more options, but it's never as clear-cut as it sounds. This design philosophy doesn't always work, and more importantly, it isn't a magical shortcut that can patch everything up and always lead to a better user experience.
