Live Photos from iPhone 6S and 6S Plus gain Facebook support

iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus owners can now share their Live Photos to the Facebook for iOS app.

The feature, which captures the moments before and after a snap is taken in order to form a short video, was rolled out with the new devices in September 2015.

The short clips can only be viewed via the Facebook iOS app and only on iOS 9.

That means Android, desktop and mobile web users will not be able to enjoy them at this time.

The upload process is familiar, but the new version of Facebook for iOS 9 will ask users to check a ‘Live’ section in order to upload the clip as well as the photo.

Once it’s uploaded, viewers of the page will be able to tap the photo in order to view the Live Photo experience.

Facebook is the second major web company to support Live Photos, after Tumblr enabled the feature.

Another of iOS 9’s major additions, 3D touch is also supported by the Facebook app.
