Windows 11 ships with the Clipchamp video editor, which has basic features available for free, and more functionality behind a paywall. If you subscribe to Microsoft 365, you can now use those features at no extra cost.

Microsoft has announced that Clipchamp is now part of the Microsoft 365 subscription, which mainly includes the Office applications suite and OneDrive cloud storage. It might seem a bit strange to package a video editor with the same subscription as Word and Excel, but Microsoft has been adding other productivity software to the subscription recently (like the premium version of Microsoft Editor).

Anyone with a Microsoft 365 subscription now has access to premium features in Clipchamp, which was previously only available with the $11.99/month (or $10/mo if paid yearly) “Essentials” plan. The free app already includes unlimited watermark-free exports — you know, like Windows Movie Maker from 20 years ago — as well as filters, effects, and some stock media. The paid version adds more audio, image, and video stock for use in projects, as well as backup features.

Clipchamp is available for Windows (it’s preinstalled on Windows 11 22H2), and on other platforms you can install the web app. Windows also has a different free video editor, which was improved with Windows 11, integrated with the Photos app.
