Facebook set to bring in Live Photos Support for iPhone 6s users

Facebook may soon launch support for Live Photos in its website and app, having recently launched a pilot version of the same for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users.

Live Photos is a great new concept launched by Apple to enable iPhone users to turn their pictures into mini videos without compromising on file sizes. Once you long press on an image, the image turns into a short 1-2 second video that reminds you of the moments when the photos were pictured. Once the feature is turned on, it extends every image to cover the instants preceding and following the moment when it was clicked.

According to Facebook, users will soon be able to view and upload Live Photos on their profiles and new status messages. Even though you will need to own an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus to click Live photos, you can view the same on any device running iOS 9.

Even though sales of the latest iPhones has hit the roof, not many third party apps or platforms have embraced Live Photos yet. Before Facebook launched the pilot version, Tumblr was the only platform which used the feature. With Apple actively promoting Live Photos through advertisements and demonstrations, we're sure a lot of social networking apps will run the feature by the time the next iPhones get launched.
