What is worth mentioning, Clips introduces Live Titles, a feature that lets you add animated captions and titles to your video – all you need to do is just speaking. Sometimes the transcription may be less accurate, though, it’s still an interesting feature that worth trying.

How to edit video clips

There are 4 buttons at the top center of the screen:

  • Speech bubble: allows you to trigger Live Titles
  • Overlapping circles: offers you seven effects filters

You can add effect filter, animated speech bubbles and emoji either before or after recording. Besides, you can also insert full‑screen posters with backgrounds to make your video more expressive.

Or you can choose single photo or video clip from the timeline to mute, trim or delete them. To change the sequence of a photo or clip, just touch the clip and drag it to the new position.

Next, if you want to add music to your video, tap the musical note at top right corner of the screen to add a music track from your library or use built-in soundtracks that automatically adjust to the length of your video.

When editing is complete, you can tap “Done” at the lower right corner of the screen and then you will see the share icon. Tap it and then you can share your video with your friends via Messages or post the video to popular social networks.
