One cool thing I found out about Google Photos is that it allows us to merge video clips magically. This feature will save lots of efforts for those who want to make special slideshow or movies easily with their photo/videos. But one limitation of this feature is that you are not able to add music or filter into the video by your own. All effects are added randomly. If you wish to stich multiple videos together with more available editing options, you will need to use tools like Video Converter Ultimate or Video Editor to merge videos for you.
