Samsung is said to scrap its Movie Maker App with the release of Android P. The South Korean tech giant Samsung is expected to discontinue the Movie Maker App. The discontinuing of the app includes there are no new updates for the app, all the old projects will get deleted which indicates that the service will be no longer available for the users.
When the Samsung user will update to latest operating system Android P, they cannot use the Movie Maker App. The Samsung users who are using the old version like Oreo and Nougat can still use the app and can access the app data. The Movie Maker App comes with the Samsung old models smartphones as a pre-installed app. The app, however, is not included in recently launched Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. The decision of discontinuing of the app is said to be taken before the huge scale production of the latest flagship phone Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
The Galaxy S9 series users can select the edit option when they view the video from the Gallery. It gets presented with a straightforward video editor which allows manipulation like trimming and applying filters, touch-up effects, and AR Emoji to clips. Movie Maker App is not capable of adding this to the videos. The discontinuation of the app which will begin with the arrival of the Android P will begin in the third quarter of the year. Samsung is believed to start the optimization for the Galaxy S9 series afterward. The support of Google’s Project Treble in the Samsung flagships phones allows receiving the major OS upgrade in the timeline. The Galaxy S8 is yet to get an upgrade to Oreo on a global level but it is said that some of its units are already getting the update.
