Facebook Starts Rolling Out Support for Live Photos

Posted December 21, 2015 at 10:36pm by iClarified
Facebook has started rolling out support for Live Photos in its iOS app, reports TechCrunch. While some users will see Live Photos support as of this morning, others will have to wait until early next year.

Uploading a Live Photo is pretty similar to uploading your standard still — in fact, it’s identical, save for one extra step. While uploading a photo from your camera roll that happens to be Live Photo-enabled, a “LIVE” box appears in the bottom right; tap that, and it’ll upload as a Live Photo. Don’t tap it, and only the still goes up.

In your feed, Facebook shows static photos by default but if you see the Live Photos icon at the bottom right of a photo you can tap and hold the photo to start playing.

Any device that runs iOS 9 will be able to view Live Photos in Facebook but only the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are able to capture them.

In addition to Facebook, Tumblr also gained support for Live Photos earlier this month.

You can download Facebook from the App Store for free.

To remember the time you took the photo and make the photos play like a gif without actually making one.
