Again Live Photos, which we’ve talked about many times, this new freature break the traditional static picture, it will make people more love taking pictures. But it’s not perfect, because of hardware limitations, live photos only limited to iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and only a few applications compatible with this feature.
To break the situation, few days ago we mentioned some third-party apps has the ability to let you use live photos more convenient, such as save and share live photos to instagram, and facebook. Tumblr already added support for Live Photos several weeks ago. Yet today, Facebook app for iOS ushered in an important update, which brings a native feature allows you to upload Live Photos on your Facebook accounts.
Here’s how to share, post or upload the iPhone’s Live Photos on Facebook
- Update the Facebook app to the latest version and launch the app on your iPhone.
- Tap on the ‘Photo’ button and choose the Live Photo from your Camera roll. Some users may have to tap on ‘new status’ field and then tap on the ‘Photo/Video’ option. Remember, you will need to know where your Live Photo is in the library as the app does not indicate if a photo is live or not, yet.
- Once you have selected the right photo hit the ‘Done’ button. Next you can enter a status update or description for the photo. More importantly you have to tap on the ‘Live’ button located at bottom right side of the screen. If you forget to enable this button, then the photo will be shared as a normal still image, without the ‘Live’ part.
Once the Live Photo has been shared on the social networking service, anyone with an iPhone 6s model will be able to force touch on it to see it animate. Anyone with an older device will be able to see the live part by performing the tap and hold action.
Just download the latest version of facebook to share your Live Photos to friends.
