Android P's arrival will mean the end of Samsung's Movie Maker application

The writing, as they say, is on the wall. The latest version of Samsung's Movie Maker application, built-in on many Galaxy devices, includes an "End of service" notice. What it says is that once Android P is rolled out to these Galaxy phones, the Samsung Movie Maker will go bye-bye. All of the projects that you've been working on will also disappear. Samsung suggests that before you update to Android P, you should transfer your video projects. However, you do have quite a while before taking care of this; Android P won't hit your Galaxy phone until the middle of 2019.

Besides the screenshot that adorns this story, APKMirror has a note on the APK for the Samsung Movie Maker that reads "Samsung Movie Maker service will be terminated after Android P (or Android 9.0) update. We wonder if Android P will bring a similar editing system to Android on a native basis, although duplication has never stopped Samsung before.

As Samsung says, the current Movie Maker allows users to edit their recordings on their phone. Sections of the video can be removed and smoother transitions added. You can add effects, superimpose some text, and change the speed of your clip. To learn what you can do with the application before it goes the way of replaceable batteries and the T-Rex, click on the video directly below.
