Earlier this summer Google launched a new built-in screencasting tool for Chromebooks. This week Google announced that more video features will be added to Chromebooks in the fall. 

The new video editing features on Chromebooks will actually be found inside of Google Photos on Chromebooks (availability for other platforms seems to be coming later). These will be an update to the current video creation options available in Google Photos. The updated video editing tools in Google Photos will let you create a video from scratch by combining pictures and video clips that are stored in your Google Photos. There is also a new set of themes coming to the video editor that you’ll be able to use to create videos. 

If the Google Photos video editing tools don’t offer everything you need, it appears that you’ll soon be able to add the LumaFusion app to your Chromebook for multitrack video editing. Whether or not that’s better than using WeVideo, I can’t say at this point.
