Tips Galaxy S8 - How to enable Live Photos (Motion Photo)

Live Photos is a fun iPhone features that creates a "living" photo by attaching a short video clip to a photo.

The Galaxy S8 has a similar feature called Motion Photos, but you to turn it on. Here's how:
  1. Open the camera app
  2. Tap the settings button (gear icon)
  3. Scroll down and tap Motion photo to enable it
Once enabled, every photo you take will also have a short 3-second video attached. There's no visual indication of this when snapping photos in the camera app, so you just have to remember it's on.

Motion Photos appear in the Gallery like any other photo, only they have a video icon in the upper right corner. Pressing it will show you the video clip recorded just before the photo was taken.
