Google has added a new feature to the Google Photos web interface, a report says.

Tech giant Google has been making strides with its applications and features for mobile, but the same cannot be said for its features on desktop. Android Police noted that while the Chrome browser maker has introduced a slew of enhancements to the Google Photos app on Android and iOS, it has left the Photos web interface without something like an editor that can be used for many things.

Thankfully, Google realized that and added some editing capabilities to the Photos web client so that it can do some of the things the mobile app does. The new Google Photos web interface now allows users to make simple edits to videos they create using the photos they upload to the photo storage and sharing service.

Android Police noted that the editor, while present, is absent of some features other editors offer. Users won't be able to overlay some text on their videos using the app. It also won't allow users to add filters to their videos, no matter how short or long these videos are. It's not hard to imagine why the editor has these limitations, though – the mobile app has them too.

The editor, however, does allow users to do some things with their videos. The editor can be used to add clips, pictures and live photos to the videos. Users can also trim and reposition these elements in the video's timeline. Users can also change the music used in a video.

The new editor on the Google Photos web client won't be enough to replace other video editing software, even the basic ones. It will, however, give users an easy way to make simple edits on the videos they share with others on the internet. It might prove useful to those who don't have other video editors on their computer, as well as for those who need minor edits only.

The new feature comes alongside other changes to the Google Photos app, 9To5Google noted. These changes include a redesign of the “info” menu, the addition of album sorting, the renaming of the “Assistant” tab into the “For You” tab, and the transfer of some functions into the new “Manage your library” feed.
