You might be wondering if you need professional software to combine these videos, but let me tell you that you can do this with a simple app on your smartphone.
This guide shows how to merge videos on your Android; you do not have to be a professional video content creator. Let’s get started.

The Google Play Store is full of applications to help you merge multiple videos, but you should consider the following features before downloading any of the apps:
- Can you edit the resolution of the videos

Frequently Asked Questions about How to Merge Videos on Android
Why is it important to have the same resolution for all the merged videos?
Having the same resolution for all videos means the final video will have better quality. Combining videos in different resolutions might result in a low-quality, blurred video.
How can you remove the watermark from the merged videos?
Unfortunately, most free apps will leave a watermark on the final video. So if you are interested in removing the watermark, you should either pay for the premium version or get an app with no watermark.
