In the ever-evolving world of smartphone photography, the Google Pixel series has consistently set a high standard for image quality and innovative features. With the release of the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, Google has introduced Live Motion Photos.
Live Motion Photos is a feature that captures brief moments before and after you take a photo. When you view these photos in your gallery, you can see a short, animated clip that gives your pictures a sense of motion.
In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to take Live Motion Photo on your Google Pixel 8 & 8 Pro.
