GoPro's overhauled Quik app makes video editing easy and effortless

GoPro's new Quik app takes the work out of video editing.

What you need to know

  • GoPro has launched a new version of Quik that combines its two previous apps.
  • The new Quik arranges photos and videos into albums called Murals, which automatically generates a highlight video.
  • Quik streamlines its editing tools to bring more versatility for both GoPro owners and smartphone users.

Smartphones are becoming increasingly powerful content editing tools for both professionals and amateurs alike, with more apps aiming to take advantage of extremely capable chipsets like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. GoPro is one company that benefits from apps that offer quick access to powerful video editing tools found on some of the best Android phones. Quik, the latest version of the GoPro app, aims to make the most of what smartphones can do while making it easy and effortless to edit videos on the go.

Quik may sound familiar to some as one of the best video editors for Android, but this is actually a brand new app that combines the best of GoPro's former two apps into one comprehensive offering. With this new application, users can easily curate their own albums, called Murals. Quik will automatically generate a video with highlights from each clip and photo, complete with music, transitions, and effects.

A benefit of this approach from Quik is that it makes things, well, quick! For example, you can take a photo from your smartphone gallery, and using the share sheet throw it into an existing mural or make a new one. It's seen as a simple, yet more hands-on and personal approach to other apps like Google Photos, and the app is also smart enough to seamlessly incorporate your new image or video into the highlight video. This takes a lot of the work out of organizing and editing, a benefit of Quik that's pointed out by GoPro founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman.

Quik makes it simple and fun to finally make sense of the vast number of photos and videos we all have on our phones. You don't even have to open the Quik app to organize your images; simply share your favorite shots directly to Quik from your camera roll, text threads, or wherever your best shots may be. We named it Quik because that's what it is!

And for those of you who want to put some tweaks onto your videos, Quik's editor has been rebuilt from the ground up and is more streamlined and easy to use. The app can sync video to music, whether you're selecting music from within the app or your own library. There are many different filters, effects, and even a new speed tool that lets you edit different sections of the same clip to really emphasize the action.

Of course, there are some GoPro-specific features in Quik, like remote control of your camera, preview shots, instant transfers, and more. The new Quik app is meant to be the end-to-end, one-stop-shop for GoPro owners and smartphone owners alike so that anyone can have access to powerful editing tools.

The new Quik app is available today. Those of you with the GoPro app will notice the change with an app update. GoPro also offers a $1.99/month subscription to access the app's full capabilities, such as unlimited cloud backups at original quality, a feature that will be available later this year. GoPro subscribers who pay $49.99/year can also get $100 off up to three cameras per year and half-off accessories.


From $2/mo. at Google Play

GoPro's new Quik app makes video editing easy by doing a lot of the work for you. Throw your photos and videos from your GoPro or smartphone into a Mural, and the app will automatically create a highlight video for you with music, transitions, effects, and all the works. Subscribers can get access to extra features like unlimited cloud backup.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers.
