article imageHow Google+ videos will be more prominent

By Brenton Currie     Dec 21, 2014 in Internet
Not satisfied with just improving photo quality, Google+ will now automatically enhance videos added to Google's social platform.
In a post on Google+ Google Photos engineer Tim St. Clair announced the new feature, revealing videos uploaded to the social network can be enhanced automatically.
According to St. Clair, video enhancements include lighting, stability and colour. An update coming soon will also allow for speech within videos to also be enhanced — making it easier to hear someone talking.
"We're all taking more videos than ever before, thanks to our mobile devices, but some of them turn out less than stellar (yes, it happens to us all)," St. Clair wrote.
"But starting today, you can make your videos look and sound better with Google+."
For now, only desktop users of Google+ will see a banner asking if they want to improve their uploaded videos. If enabled, a lower resolution preview will show the original video and the enhanced video in a side-by-side picture to enable a comparison to take place.
Aside from those videos automatically identified by Google as being candidates for the auto improvement feature, users can also manually apply Auto Enhance to videos of their choice either via the desktop site or the Android app.
Google's Auto Enhance technology is one of the big attractions for users that utilise the search giant's Google+ Photos tool, alongside the automatic backup of photographs, unlimited storage for pictures uploaded at a standard size.
Earlier this year, the company announced new functionality that automatically creates scrapbook-style photo presentations using photos added to the service.
