Pixel's Motion Photos Can Now Be Exported as GIFs
Owners of the Google's Pixel handsets have a new way to share Motion Photos. A recent update to the Google Photos app adds the ability for Motion Photos to be exported as still images, videos, and now as GIFs. The GIFs are easy to share via social media apps and automatically loop once exported. The tool is available in the overflow menu of Google Photos. The GIF files are fairly large, larger than the original Motion Photo, and are saved at high resolution. The feature is already built into the Google Photos app on Pixel devices.
