Some videos are funnier when you see them in slow motion. For example, the video of your friend throwing some cake on someone else needs to be enjoyed as much as possible and slow motion would be perfect. In that case, you’re going to need apps that can change the speed of your video.
There are various apps you can choose from, but some may not offer enough options. Other apps may offer too many when you’re only looking for an app with basic editing options. In the following list, you’ll find all sorts of free video editing apps for Android that allow you to change your videos’ speed. All of them are free to use,, and there is no need to create an account either.
1. Fast Motion: Speed up Videos with Fast Motion
One popular app that will help you change your video’s speed is Fast Motion: Speed up Videos with Fast Motion. The app is free to use, and you don’t have to create an account o use it. When you first open the app, you can edit the video if you want. If not, tap on the Next button at the top right.
The app will ask you if you want to speed up or slow down your video in the next step. Choose an option, and it’ll be applied at the beginning of the video. The video that has the effect will be highlighted in blue or red, depending on the option you chose. The app will apply a default speed but if you want to change it, tap on the part of the video that’s highlighted and choose a rate displayed right above your video.
