The Journey:We built Animaker 2.0 to help novice video makers create professional quality videos and it has been available for our users since last september. I still remember the day we launched Animaker 2.0 as clearly as yesterday, the excitement and anxiety in all our hearts and it was indeed a great moment of pride. When we look back, the beta phase demanded a lot of hard work and time. From shortlisting the first 100 users for a closed beta access, getting feedback, resolving issues and continuously improving the application amidst the challenges of working remotely to now reaching 8 Million total users, It has been a ride to remember. The love millions of our users showed towards us gave us the motivation to continuously enhance our product’s performance. So, I want to take a moment and thank all our amazing users who have been with us throughout this journey with their tremendous support and feedback. We loved working with you all. Thanks a ton! Oh no. Wait.. This isn’t a vote of thanks and this doesn’t end here. There are other fabulous things I want to update you about. So, continue reading.
What's new?We took the first step by introducing the 2 new products - Video Editor and Animaker lite along with our most powerful Animation video maker, all now integrated into a single application. Since then, we’ve indeed come a long way. We’ve squashed bugs, launched incredible new features, aided enterprises with a one stop shop video making solution and of course helped millions of our budding video makers to create studio quality videos. And today, we stand proud before you with a list of these 15 awesome updates we released during the beta phase.

2. 5 new languages to speak your native tongue:Though English is widely used as an official language, only 20% of the world’s population are native English speakers. What! Really? Yes, really! Over the last year, we got thousands of requests from users (belonging to countries that don’t have english as their native language) to release versions of the Animaker app in their native languages.. We heard them and as a first step, we launched Animaker 2.0 in 3 different languages French, Italian and Spanish followed by Portuguese and German recently. Yes, Animaker now supports 5 other regional languages apart from English!

12. Animaker Voice - For the perfect human-like voice-overs:
Video makers generally spend a lot of time in perfecting every aspect of their video right from a killer script, astonishing animation to even the teeny transitions to ensure the right delivery of the message in their video. But one of the most important and often overlooked factors in every video is the voiceover. If a script is what you say in a video, then the voiceover is how you say it. Then isn’t it important that you add a vivid voiceover to augment the visuals? Yes, it certainly is! And that’s why we’re introducing Animaker Voice that uses a Neural Text to Speech model to convert any text into ultra realistic, crystal clear Human-like audio narrations! And guess what! You can even download your voice note as an MP3 file or share it with your audience or network. Where can I find it? It is integrated into the application and you can access it right from your Dashboard.
13. 'My Voice' folder - Have all your voice files in one place:We have introduced a separate folder named ‘My Voice’ in the My uploads section of your library. What does it do? It keeps all your music files, audio uploads, voiceovers made with the In-app recorder and TTS tool organised in the ‘My Voice’ folder automatically. You need not manually organise them.
Now all your voiceovers will be saved in one easy to access location and you can reuse them in all your videos with a single click. Yayyy… Saves tons of your time, right?
14. Team Management - To seamlessly collaborate with multiple teams:Let’s consider you are running a company with a very diverse team. Okay, I can hear some of them saying ‘Nooo.. I don’t run a company’ Well you can work on multiple projects with your friends in different teams. In either case, it is important to have effective team management to make your work simpler. While Animaker teams definitely aid in managing multiple teams, we have further improved our dashboard to stay productive while working across multiple teams. Now you can easily create teams, switch between multiple teams and even know which team you are working currently without navigating to your team settings every single time.
Isn’t that very efficient?
15. Set the perfect theme to your story with these New 2D Backgrounds:Though Animaker is a one stop solution for all your video goals, we see tremendous value in providing our users with the resources that help in achieving your goals even easier.
