One of the most significant features that arrived with iPhone 6s is Live Photos, which is a short video clip of three seconds. This all new feature on iPhone not just instills life into photos but also brings plenty of smiles whenever you watch them.
To let iPhone users make the most of the Live Photos, Google has launched an exciting app called “Motion Stills” primed to turn your Live Photos into awesome GIFs or movies.
With the use of Google’s stabilization technology and cinematic backgrounds, the app turns Live Photos into motion stills. In other words, it works as a smart cameraman for your cool pictures. Here is how you can get started and use it like a pro!
