GoPro has launched a new QuikStories feature to its Quik app, which uses your smartphone to edit your GoPro or Mobile Phone footage, giving you a ready-to-share video. QuikStories are polished, shareable videos featuring customizable music, filters, and effects.

Making a QuikStory is as simple as pairing a HERO5 camera to your phone and launching the GoPro app. Then kick back as the app automatically copies your most recent GoPro footage to your phone and creates an exciting video for you.

Here is the video from my recent trip, auto-edited on the GoPro Quik App and shot on the Samsung Galaxy S8 plus.

QuikStories is now available for HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session users. You can download the new GoPro app from the Apple App Store or Google Play (available for free for Android and Apple users).
