Best Video Editor Apps for Android: InShot, PowerDirector, Quik, and More


Video editing apps are now becoming increasingly popular, and the Google Play store has some of the best video editing apps for Android that you can find on mobile devices. These are especially popular among millennials who love uploading reels and creative videos on social media. The video editing apps of today give you several tools to stitch multiple videos together, create seamless transitions, add music, and edit out unwanted footage. Previously, all of this was possible only through premium software like Adobe Premier Pro and Final Cut Pro, which were expensive to buy and required heavily loaded PCs to run smoothly. Now, thanks to the app revolution, there are several video editing apps that offer varied editing tools, some for free, and some at a premium subscription.

We have compiled a list of the five best video editing apps for Android users that are free to download. These apps have been collated by skimming through the top video editing apps list on Google Play store and seeing the ‘Editors’ Choice’ recommendations.
