Google Photos bringing ‘Cinematic Moment’ feature for videos

Published

Google Photos Cinematic moment

Google Photos is developing a ‘Cinematic Moment’ feature, which will enhance videos by adding slow-motion effects automatically. This feature is similar to the ‘Cinematic Photos’ tool, which creates 3D-like images.

The ‘Cinematic Moment’ feature of the Google Photos app will select parts of a video and slow them down to create an amazing effect. This process is developed to be fully automatic, allowing users to enjoy their videos with an added layer of enhancement without any manual effort.

Discovered by Assemble Debug (Android Authority) during an APK teardown of Google Photos app version 6.84.0.634885033, the feature is still in the development phase. The code hints at the ability of the feature to create moments by slowing down parts of a video.

It’s important to note that not all features discovered in development code are released to the public. This new feature is expected to be available in a future update of Google Photos, making it easier for users to create interesting videos without manual editing.

Google to boost more Android apps with Gemini Nano

Gemini nano apps

At the recent I/O 2024, Google showcased the importance of on-device AI for Android’s future. Some Android apps are already using Gemini Nano, and the search engine is going to expand it to more apps.

The session titled “Android on-device AI under the hood” highlighted the three uses of on-device generative AI – Cosume, Create, and Classify. These three offer text summarization, messaging suggestions, and sentiment analysis

The advantages of on-device AI are enhanced security, offline availability, reduced latency, and no cloud costs. However, the limitations include a smaller parameter size of 2-3 billion and a limited context window.

Gemini Nano is the chosen platform for developing on-device AI applications. Currently, Google’s apps like Pixel Recorder and Google Messages are using Gemini Nano, and more apps are expected to integrate it in 2024.

Google Maps for Android brings simplified bottom bar interface

Published

Google Maps bottom bar

Google Maps is introducing a new interface for the bottom bar on Android to enhance user navigation and interaction. The new interface aims to make the app more user-friendly by combining related features into one place.

The refreshed bottom bar in Google Maps for Android has been reduced to three primary tabs – Explore, You, and Contribute. This is a change from the previous layout, which included five tabs.

While the Explore and Contribute tabs have been retained with their original functions, the You tab has been expanded. It now includes the capabilities that were once found in the Go, Saved, and Updates tabs.

The You tab keeps the bookmark icon and overall layout. The search bar has been removed from the top of the screen, and users can now find Notifications and Messages in the upper-right corner. The bottom bar will show alerts when necessary.

Despite changes in design, Google Maps has not adopted the tall Material You bottom bar or Dynamic Color. However, it plans to add a new image carousel feature, similar to Google Photos. The update also introduces new pin colors to help users find places more easily on the map.

Google is rolling out the new interface with Google Maps version 11.127.x. To experience the new changes and features, make sure to update the app to the latest version.
