Microsoft Pix is an all-in-one camera and photo editor. For every photo you take, it captures a burst of 10 images and uses artificial intelligence to combine the best elements into one "perfect" photo. Pix also creates captivating live images and cool hyperlapse videos.


AI photo editing: With Microsoft Pix you won't need professional editing skills to significantly improve your photos and videos. The app does the job for you, using artificial intelligence, computational photography (an advanced capturing and processing technique), and video stabilization.

Face first: With selfie takers in mind, Microsoft Pix prioritizes faces when making edits.

Live images: If the app senses any interesting motion, such as rippling waves behind the subject, it turns photo bursts into looping images.

Image comparison: If you can't see all the app's subtle photo improvements, Pix lets you compare its images side-by-side with your original photo.

Hyperlapse videos: Shoot a video, then speed it up by tapping the Hyperlapse button and sliding the speed from 1X up to 32X.


Basic manual-editing features: While Microsoft Pix does a great job editing your photos, you may want to make some final tweaks on your own. Unfortunately all you'll be able to do is crop and filter.

Bottom Line

Microsoft Pix takes the guesswork out of photo and video editing.
