HTC has confirmed that the new HTC Zoe 1.0 collaborative video editing app is coming to Android and iOS devices later this year.
Improving on the HTC Zoe software introduced with the original HTC One, Zoe 1.0 will launch for devices outside of the HTC smartphone family.
What’s different about HTC Zoe 1.0 is that it’s a collaborative video editing app. Like its predecessor, it allows your to remix your photos and videos into highlights reels with themes and soundtracks. But, now those highlight reels can be shared within the Zoe community, allowing your friends to remix their content with yours.
Zoe 1.0 also allows you to create different size highlight reels. You can choose to make shorter ones with just a couple of still images, or longer ones with a series of video clips with interspersed photos.
HTC Zoe 1.0 was introduced with the new HTC Desire EYE and HTC RE camera at a special event, highlighting HTC’s camera expertise.
Zoe 1.0 is integrated fully in the RE camera, which means the device automatically generates Zoe video highlight reels that are ready to share after your holiday or day’s adventures.
They can be uploaded directly from the RE too, meaning you don’t need to sync the camera to your PC first.
There’s no official release date for the arrival of Zoe 1.0 and its related community, but we’ll keep you posted.
