First reported by TechCrunch, VSCO has brought some new updates in its flagship app. The photo-filtering app has rolled out new updates, which contains video-editing capabilities to its app. Now users can apply VSCO’s cool filters to their videos.

It seems like, now, editing is not beyond correcting colors and grading a picture. So you can apply various filters and modify different features of a video like contrast and saturation. It has been made a pretty simple and basic video-editing tool, since there are no such things as trimming a video clip or cutting multiple clips together.

However, the app still has some great filters that result in excellent images, so it may new update may have some loyal fans. The tools are currently accessible to iOS users, but the new update is supposed to be launched on Android in the near future.

There’s more of it. VSCO says that it launching an “early access version” of the update today.

But there is one downside of the new roll-out: The new update is only available for those who are paying subscribers. Users who pay  for VSCO’s $19.99 per year membership program, called VSCO X, which basically just gives you access to a various filters you can definitely buy for cheaper than $20, as well as some bonus filters that you can’t buy instantly. While it’s annoying that free users won’t be able to have an access to the new update, keeping them exclusive to VSCO X surely is a good way making people shift toward subscriptions.
