Google wants you to try its new photo apps

Under the Appsperiments umbrella, the company has launched three apps, which are fully functional in their own right but are based on new technology that Google will continue to build out over time.

The new applications are Storyboard which is only for Android, Selfissimo! which is both for Android and iOS, and Scrubbies which is exclusively for iOS.

Google has introduced three new AI-powered photography apps namely Storyboard, Selfissimo and Srubbies under its new "appsperiments" programme. Each name refers to the app's primary function, though you won't be able to use all three on the same device.

CNN's Manu Raju went on air to offer a correction on the story over two hours after the Post cast doubt on the flawed report. Others, however, have come to CNN's defense, saying the story was an honest mistake from otherwise reliable reporters.

Google released a trio of "appsperiments" that'll let users have more fun with their photos and videos. The app will encourage you to pose and as soon as you stop moving, a photo will be taken. Well, it means that these technologies are still in the development stage and Google has integrated them into the apps to test them further and fix the shortcomings. It will let you review the images by saving individual images or the whole shoot. In a nutshell, it takes a video clip and uses artificial intelligence to transform it into a comic-style storyboard. This app plays to the video loop trend that has been popular for years now.

Scrubbies is up for grabs for iOS users via the App Store.

Just like Motion Stills, these new apps - Storyboard, Selfissimo!, and Scrubbies, are developed by researchers at Google that relies on object recognition, person segmentation, stylisation algorithms, efficient image encoding and decoding technologies, and of course, fun. But these are interesting apps and if they get good reception it is even possible that they may become permanent part of Android camera app in future. This means that you can create stylish video loops that highlight actions, capture amusing faces, and replay moments; sort of like mixing the video by scratching it sort of like what DJ does to music. "Swipe back and forwards on the video to 'remix" it. Swipe the video with two fingers to record the playback.
