Microsoft release Hyperlapse app for Android minus  its ‘beta’ tag

Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile_MainThis year Microsoft seem to have been paying attention more and more to its Android apps. Now releasing a video recording application to the Google Play Store called Hyperlapse, and shaken off the beta tag. Hyperlapse allows you to take beautiful time-lapse videos on your mobile device. Even though the company has been adding support more and more devices over the past few months.

Microsoft’s Hyperlapse allows you to either capture or upload normal videos and speed them up to 32x their normal rate. Using the company’s impressive video processing technology, the app not only speeds up each video, but also takes out most of the shakes and stumbles that your smartphone captures when recording a video.

There’s a web version available, too. If you’d like to upload additional footage that’s not kept on your smartphone, you can download the Hyperlapse Pro preview app for the desktop.

If you’ve been waiting for a good way to record time-lapse videos on Android and don’t have access to Instagram’s Hyperlapse app on iOS, you should definitely give this app a try.

Microsoft states on Google play:

Say goodbye to long videos that no one watches, and hello to Microsoft Hyperlapse.

Microsoft Hyperlapse is a new technology that creates smooth and stabilized time lapses from first-person videos.

Want to show your friends what you saw on that 12-mile hike you took last weekend, or let them experience how it felt to fly down the mountain on your recent ski trip? With Microsoft Hyperlapse, you can time lapse those experiences, distilling them into easily consumable, enjoyable experiences.


  • Instant gratification: Capture the video, see the hyperlapse. It’s that simple.
  • Import existing video: The other option: With Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile, you can create a hyperlapse of any video you’ve already shot on your phone, instead of moving to a special application and shooting a video just for hyperlapsing.
  • Multiple speeds: Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile supports hyperlapsing a video multiple times, at different speed rates, from 1x to 32x times the normal speed – or all of the above!
  • Selfie lapses: Let your friends see your face – sped up of course – while you take your first skydiving lesson or fly through the jungle on a zipline.
  • Share: It’s easy to post your hyperlapses on popular social media and video sites.

Hyperlapse Mobile requires Android 4.4 or 5.0 (KitKat and Lollipop)
