Windows 11 will have a video editing application preinstalled

Following Apple’s example with iMovie, Microsoft will offer a free video editing application for Windows 11. This is called Clipchamp and will be pre-installed on Windows 11 in the future.

It’s already in the latest Insider Build, but it doesn’t look as advanced as Adobe Premiere or DaVinci Resolve. However, it provides much of the functionality a home user needs.

It has multiple templates, a rich library of filters and transition effects, and the option to edit multi-track audio. Content can be exported to social media directly from the app, and the Azure text-to-speech engine can provide automatic translation into over 70 languages.

Most likely, Clipchamp will be available in stable versions of Windows 11 only towards the end of the year.
