Get movies automatically with Auto Awesome

Turn on Auto Backup to get professional-looking movies automatically made from your photos and videos.

  1. Install the Google+ app for Android or iOS on your mobile device.
  2. Turn on Auto Backup.
  3. Take lots of photos & videos. Auto Awesome will take your related photos and videos and create movies out of them. (And don't worry, your original photos won’t be changed. Auto Awesome makes a copy of them and your original photos are still in your Google+ photos.)

You’ll get a notification if an Auto Awesome Movie is automatically made for you.
