Enable Motion Photos on my Samsung Phone

Last Update date : Jul 11. 2022

Motion Photo puts a little context into the making of the shot by letting you capture a few seconds of action leading up to when the shutter button is released. It even allows you to pinpoint which moment you want to preserve as the still frame. Also, when it comes to sharing photos with friends and family, you have the option to share the Motion Photo as a video file.
