Facebook Starts Rolling Out Support For Apple’s Live Photos

23 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Alive Is A Neat Little App To View, Edit And Share Your Live Photos.

The feature is exclusive to pictures taken by the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus’ 12MP camera, but they can now be watched back on any device running iOS 9 or above, and now images hosted within Facebook’s iOS app.The iPhone manufacturer introduced Live Photos – still photographs that incorporate three-seconds of video before and after the snap was taken – with its latest iPhone models, the 6S and 6S Plus. The Live Photos mode is automatically turned on each time you open the camera, and a small yellow box reading Live appears on screen while you take your picture as you would normally.

Facebook is slowly rolling out support for Live Photos to a small percentage of its 1.39 billion mobile users to begin with, before a broader roll out kicks in next year. Scrolling through pictures in the Photos app triggers a brief burst of movement to remind you it’s a Live Photo, rather than a standard still image. You’ll have to tap that box manually with each Live Photo, and with good reason: once enabled on your iPhone, Live Photos are created with little to no thought on your part. Add in the fact that Live Photos include 1.5 seconds of video and audio from before/after the instant you hit that shutter button, and it’s easy to imagine a scenario where you unwittingly capture something you… maybe don’t want to make public.

In the bottom right of each, however, will be a set of concentric circles — the same icon that Apple uses to indicate the “Live Photo” toggle within the camera UI (see the top-most right image for an example).
