In case you hadn’t noticed, the Lumia Moments app was removed from the Windows 10 Mobile Store a while back.
The Lumia Moments app allows you to save photos from your recorded videos (among other things). It was available on the Lumia 830, 930 and 1520 until it was removed.
Well, it’s back and interestingly enough it is back, rebranded as Photo Add-in (they used the same tile logo from Lumia Moments too), which is great, as you can use the app “Photo Add-in” to edit
Here is what the app description reads:
“Add great new effects and features to the Microsoft Photos app with this handy plug-in. With Microsoft Photos plug-in, you can save the perfect photo from your videos, add a strobe effect to your photos to show action or add blur to emphasis motion. This plug-in is fully supported on Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia Icon and Lumia 1520.”
Microsoft recently discontinued a bunch of Lumia branded photo editing apps like Panorama, Refocus, Youtube Upload. This makes me wonder if these apps will return as photo add-ins (or should I say plugins?). If that’s the case, it’s a smart move by Microsoft, discontinuing those apps and releasing them as add-ins would mean that everyone would be able to download what add-ins they want for the hub of their photo and also it means developers will be able to create their own photo add-ins.
You can download the Photos Add-ins app from the Windows 10 Mobile store.
**NOTE: this is for ONLY Lumia 830, 930 and 1520 running W10M**
