San Mateo, CA—GoPro introduced an app update to help GoPro users view, edit and share faster. The GoPro app update integrates the best of the Quik video-editing app into the GoPro app. It also adds a fresh visual design, improved storytelling tools and enhanced filter capabilities. In addition, the update features are powered by a revving new software engine.
Moreover, this is the first in a series of GoPro app updates that will create a single app experience for mobile editing. The new app will provide all the utility functions for controlling a GoPro from a smartphone.
GoPro App Update Key Features
With the new update, GoPro app users will notice design upgrades; from a visual refresh and a more modern UI to a more intuitive navigation. But the real benefits begin with the updates to the storytelling experience. Featured is an improved QuikStory multi-clip workflow. This enables the GoPro app to better identify meaningful moments in footage as well as suggest story compilations of photos and videos, automatically. These stories will include recently shot GoPro content; users can also add any photo or video saved in the media library of their smartphone. Another new capability of the GoPro app is the ability to mix and match filters in a single QuikStory. Users can choose from more than 20 filter options as well as apply multiple filter types within the same multi-clip video. The result is a customizable editing experience with infinite creative options.
In addition, the update offers creative flexibility by removing draft limitations of the previous editing model. Now QuikStory videos will remain in an always-editable format so users can go back and make changes at any time. This new functionality is a critical improvement from the previous Quik pass-through workflow. Furthermore, it provides GoPro app users with a more powerful way to manage their media and update their edits on-demand.
GoPro app users also can experiment with the updates and experience the benefits of the merge with Quik. However, the company noted that future app developments are coming.
“The roadmap for the one-app experience is rich with improvements, including single clip editing to unlock a full editing suite for single clips; new themes to make your photos and videos look more like the content that GoPro produces; and expanded platforms for integrating third-party content into GoPro edits,” GoPro announced.
