FAQs about editing videos on Chromebook

Absolutely! And you don't even need to download anything from the Chrome web store. (But if you happen to want a dedicated app, we've got one of those, too.) To start video editing in the app or on the web, all you need to do is sign up for a free plan — and yes, it's 100% free, no tricks or gimmicks.

Our free plan gives you access to all our key features: green screen, picture-in-picture screen recording, motion titles, video effects, professional-grade templates, and more. 

Our free version for Chromebook does include a watermark on all published videos, but if you want to remove the watermark, it's as simple as upgrading to a paid plan. We know, not the best news out there...but we do offer a wide variety of premium version plans to fit your needs. Whether you're an individual, a business, or a school district, we've got right-sized options for affordable video editing.

We don't know about all those other video editor apps out there, but if you use WeVideo, then yes! We offer a secure cloud-based video editor that works in any internet browser, along with dedicated video editing apps for iOS and Android. Create wherever it suits you on any given day.

You know that phrase, "The devil's in the details"? Well, we couldn't agree more when it comes to video editing. Though we actually prefer to say, "The difference is in the details." In other words, what separates a professional-looking video from an amateur one is usually nothing more than the little editing details: the perfect transition between shots, the right motion title, or the ideally timed audio clip.

Fortunately, our Chrome OS video editor makes it easy to create something pro-level — even with no experience. Just use the app's built-in editing features to trim clipsadjust audio levels, and more. You can't go wrong!

What would a video editor be without some professional-level templates to get you started? (Not the best one in our book!) Fear not — we have a great selection of full-featured video templates to make your editing process as simple as possible. Make detailed frame-by-frame edits to your template if you want complete control, or make a few key edits to the essentials and be ready to publish in minutes. With our video editor, you can make it as resource-intensive (or light!) as you prefer.
