GoPro teams up with Huawei to bring Quik mobile app on the P10 and P10 Plus
Since its release back in May 2016, Quick for Android surpassed 12 million downloads in the Google Play Store. According to Huawei's CEO, Richard Yu, the application is “the ultimate companion to any smartphone,” hence the partnership between the two companies.
So, the P10 and P10 Plus' Photo Gallery will be using a new feature called “Highlight,” which is supposed to automatically pick photos and video of the user and arrange them into a collection.
After that, with a tap of a button, Quik will create a video matching the edit to the beat of the music, as well as add subtle effects and transitions. The video can be shared with friends, or it can be further customized using various templates and the app's editing features.
Quik will also allow users to include their photos and video taken with the smartphone, in the auto-generated “For You” video that the app creates on a weekly basis. Furthermore, GoPro announced that it would provide additional Quik updates that will include better music selection and a redesigned flow for videos.
Although GoPro states that Quik will come pre-loaded on the P10 and P10 Plus, the company hints to a possible integration of the app into other Huawei smartphones running the new EMUI 5.1.
