Google Photos on iOS can now turn Live Photos into GIFs

US tech giant Google has released Version 2.0 of its Photos app for iOS that now gives users the ability to edit Live Photos and turn them into shareable GIFs and video clips, a media report said.

Live Photos is an interesting feature in Apple's iPhone 6s/6s Plus and SE models camera setting that brings your photos to life by creating a moving image. 

A Live Photo captures 1.5 seconds of video and audio both before and after you press the shutter button to take a photo. Thus, in addition to a still JPEG image, you also get a three second Live Photo.

"Google first introduced the ability to edit Live Photos earlier this year with the Motion Stills app," technology website reported on Friday. 

The Motion Stills app improves your Live Photos by helping you to do things like crop out the blurry frames, freeze the background, create cinematic pans, stabilise the images. 

In addition, the upgraded app also lets you share video clips on YouTube.
