The Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro have a smart photo editing feature based on artificial intelligence (AI) called Photo Unblur. This function may also be used for videos in the future.
Photo Unblur comes to videos
Photo Unblur or Photo Sharpen can currently only be used on the Pixel 7 series in Google Photos. And just for pictures. That may change soon. Google is working on a similar feature for videos aptly named: Video Unblur. This would allow you to make a video look sharper and clearer.
Photo Unblur in action
9to5Google managed to enable the Video Unblur tool in Google Photos, although the feature isn’t working yet. Google apparently hasn’t finished developing it yet. Like Photo Unblur, Video Unblur also relies on AI magic to make your videos sharper and clearer, whether or not they were shot on a Pixel.
The website also discovered 14 new video effects in Google Photos, including After School, B&W, Polaroid, Chromatic, Moire, and VHS. Again, none of these overlays are working yet, which indicates that Google is still working on them. Google Photos currently already has 18 video filters and also advanced stabilization for videos. That is not yet as extensive as the possibilities that these video editor apps have. Apparently, Google now wants to change this.
Exclusive to Pixel phones?
Photo Unblur is a feature exclusive to Pixels. In all likelihood, Video Unblur will also be a Pixels exclusive, but that’s not yet known. Google recently made the Magic Eraser, which helps you remove unwanted objects like your ex-girlfriend from photos, available to anyone with a Google One subscription.
