How to Crop or Cut Videos on Android

Google Photos is not explored much by users. Whether you are using iPhone or Android phone, Google Photos gives you good service with a huge storage capacity on cloud. One Google ID gives you 15-GB storage, which is fair enough to save your countless photos and videos.

Apart from storage, Google Photos has a hidden feature of trimming or cutting of videos you have shot on your Android phone. The feature has remained unknown to many Android users, and therefore, this will receive quite a reception slowly and gradually.

Trimming or cutting videos is an activity that every user wants to learn; for a pro-lensman, it is mandatory and for an amateur (like Android phone users) video editing is fun. And to do this at home without relying on the expertise of professional camera man, you should explore Google Photos app on your Android device.

Once you trim or cut videos, you can share your new creation with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, WhatsApp or Instagram – the last two clients are the best platform for video sharing with friends.

Many Android phones have this app built-in with Google’s service package. But if yours don’t have this app, you can download Google Photos from Play Store. Once you download and install this app, follow the steps given below to cut or trim videos on your Android phone.

Your video is now ready to be shared. You can access it from the local folder; since you have synced Google Photos with your Google account, your saved video should be available on the cloud.
