  • Google Photos is adding new video effects, but they are only available to Google Pixel owners and Google One subscribers.
  • There are 12 video effects at launch, and they co-exist alongside video filters.

Google Photos comes preloaded on practically every Android phone and tablet that has Google Mobile Services. But thanks to the immense utility of the app, most people don’t consider it as burdensome bloatware. Google is making Google Photos even more useful with new Effects, but this time, only for Pixel owners and Google One subscribers.

Announced via the Google Photos Twitter account, Google Photos can now add effects over videos. Effects have begun rolling out to Pixel owners and to paid Google One subscribers.
