Video editing just got scraped off the desktop PC and landed right into your smartphone. The power of the smartphone you use today is good enough to manage basic video editing with almost zero skills required — thanks to pre-installed features such as ready-made templates, filters and stickers. Apps today make work super easy and simple to follow, which gives you the power of shooting and editing your own videos, even if you are hanging off a cliff!
Well, if you are using other short video apps, we would like to highlight something similar, but more superior to what you see there. Check out the Likee app (formerly known as LIKE), a short video creation platform, which will be a breeze to use if upgrading from the others. Likee comes from Singapore-based Bigo Technology, is a huge upgrade and a rebrand from its old version that was known as LIKE. To inspire more creative content, the company has attracted media agency tie-ups such as ANI, Reuters, Dainik Jagran, India TV, etc.; and celebrities like Shakti Mohan, Zakir Khan, RJ Naved and many more who can now be accessed on the Likee platform.
Likee introduces a new user interface with a new home page element with video vertical labels, making it easier for users to watch their preferred category video; additional features and functions such as beauty stickers, AI filters, 4D magic, magic music filters and a lot more. The newly launched app now also features a plethora of video content, social presence (helps you follow people or see nearby users), and best of all, it also has a Talent Creator Union and Award module for users to monetize their creativity.
The app is easy-to-use even if you are a new user on the platform. You may need a bit of a learning curve when it comes to scanning the built-in features on what you can add and edit (photos and videos) in the initial stage. Since there is a plethora of features and add-ons that can be downloaded too, you would be pretty busy trying each one out for days to come. But once you know them, use them, and try them out on your own, you are sure to use the app like a pro. The initial page on the app reflects users who post their fun videos publicly. These are listed vertically and simply swiping them upwards will move to the next video. Icons on each video are available to share, like, comment, and a few others. Additionally, you can follow people, search for users or trending hashtags too, making it hard to miss out on the fun that others post.
Creating your own unique videos is super simple. Just hit the record button (the icon with a video camera on the bottom-centre) and position yourself in the frame. You can shoot simple straight-forward videos or choose from a few thousands of templates that vary between beauty modes, filters and video templates such as magic, Superme, and a lot more. Top up with your own voice or music or choose from the list of audio tracks — music to funny sounds and dialogues and finalize your videos as per your liking. You can also control the speed and length of your videos or pause in between recordings to easily add clips that merge together at the end, automatically. Once done, you are free to preview, edit, finalize, and lastly, post them online with text and tags to your friends or to the world.
Likee is powered by a magic video maker offering exclusive custom clips, dialogues, sync, duet, special effects, and thousands of stickers and music. AI beauty filters to re-create yourself in your videos can also be clubbed with some cool and stylish stickers, along with tweaks and edits that feature magic music filter, 4D magic and superpower.
