The 15 Best Video Editing Apps for Android (2020)

The importance and use of videos in the digital world is increasing day by day. So much so that, according to a study by Hubspot, 78% of people watch online videos every week, and 55% watch on a daily basis. 

Just on Youtube, mobile users view more than 1 billion hours of video each day and the video consumption rates skyrocket not only on video platforms, but also on other social media channels such as Facebook and Instagram.

In line with the increase in video consumption, there is also an upward trend in the number of video editing apps in the market. Thanks to these apps, we can edit videos more easily and quickly on our mobile devices that we always carry with us, without the need for any computer.

However, the abundance of these apps on the Play Store makes it a little bit difficult to find which ones are the best and it usually requires us to try them one by one to see if they’re what we’re looking for. 

In today’s blog post, we’ll be talking about the 15 best video editing apps for Android with their details including their main features, download counts, app ratings and more.

Before starting, I’d like to remind you that you can use all of these apps for free and all of them offer premium plans / features in case you need more advanced solutions.

  1. InShot

We’re starting our list with InShot, which was released on the Google Play Store 9 years ago, in 2011. 

You’ve probably seen the logo of InShot on your friends’ Instagram posts many times before. It is one of the oldest and the best video editing apps with a very large user base from all around the world. 

The InShot app allows you to trim & merge your videos, adjust their speed, crop and resize them, add texts and stickers as well as  music from your own device or the app’s broad music library, apply effects and filters, create collages and more.
