Tue, 13th Feb 2024

GoPro has announced the launch of a macOS desktop version of its popular mobile application, Quik. Alongside this development, the company has unveiled a new addition to its subscription offerings: a Premium+ tier that provides users with advanced features and benefits.

The Quik desktop app is designed for integration with its existing mobile version, creating seamless cross-platform editing. It adheres to the same vision of empowering content creators on various experience levels with innovative features such as beat sync and auto-highlight editing.

Further, GoPro has enhanced its subscription services with the introduction of the Premium+ tier. For NZD $199.99 a year, it includes HyperSmooth Pro video stabilisation and an extra 500GB of cloud storage. This new tier represents a step up from the original NZD $79.99 subscription tier, now rebranded as Premium.

As a free addition for GoPro subscribers, the Quik desktop app offers practical features such as cross-platform editing tools, unlimited cloud storage for GoPro footage, and a feature for auto-highlight videos, among others.

Nicholas Woodman, CEO and Founder, said, "Our new Quik desktop app syncs with our mobile app and cloud, making GoPro the ultimate content creation solution for beginners and advanced creators alike."

The Premium+ subscription offers not only all the above, but also introduces a HyperSmooth Pro video stabilisation tool and an added 500GB of cloud storage for footage captured with any camera.

GoPro users can now choose between three subscription offerings: the GoPro Premium, the new GoPro Premium+ and a fresh Quik subscription available for NZD $16.99 a year, catering to non-GoPro users seeking premium video editing solutions for their phone content. These offerings aim to cater to different user preferences and requirements, reinforcing GoPro's commitment to accommodate creators on various platforms and experience levels.

The macOS version of Quik is available initially, with a Windows version expected to arrive later this year. As per the company, users can look forward to continuous updates and improvements throughout the year.

With these launches, GoPro underscores its commitment to empowering creators with efficient tools and services for their content creation endeavours, progressively refining and expanding its offerings, and harnessing advanced AI and computing visions for sophisticated capabilities.
