Fly Labs acquisition means Google Photos could finally bring robust video editing to Android


Fly Labs Fly video editor

Fly Labs, the development team behind a handful of powerful, yet easy to use, video editing apps on iOS has officially been acquired by Google. According to the announcement on Fly Labs’ website, the team will be joining up with the guys at Google Photos, folding their technology into Google’s and likely building one kick-ass video editor for Android.

Currently, Google Photos has some very basic trim functionality for video, but nothing as robust as the apps Fly Labs created for the iPhone and iPad (see above video). Speaking of iOS, Fly Labs’ apps are now completely free with no in-app purchases. The apps will remain on the App Store for another 3 months and although no future app updates will be given, apps downloaded to your device will remain there. So, if you have an iPad laying around, or know someone who is using an iOS device, tell them to get on it.

There’s no telling how long it’ll be before we see the fruits of Fly Labs’ labor manifest itself in Google Photos, but for anyone that’s wished Android had the video editing capabilities of iOS — there’s hope.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
