Microsoft is rolling out a small update to the Movies & TV app for Insiders, bringing along tighter integration with the Photos app. Now, when watching a personal video in Movies & TV, you'll find a new set of editing options below the progress bar (via Windows Blog Italia).
Represented by a pencil icon, the options allow you quick access to trim, draw, create a slow motion video, or save a photo from a video. Clicking one of the available options will open the video in the Photos app directly to whatever you choose. From the official release notes:
- Get creative: Use Photos to add ink, slo-mo, and more while watching your videos.
Keep in mind that this doesn't work with movies and TV shows that you've purchased. The editing option is only available on your own, personal videos located in the Movies & TV app. Still, it's a handy set of options to have.
So far, we've spotted the update on the Fast ring, but it may be rolling out to other Insider rings as well. You'll find the options available with version 10.17102.12311.0 of the Movies & TV app.
