Facebook recently announced it will follow the likes of Tumblr and allow users to view and upload Live Photos on their news feeds using the Facebook app for iOS, reports TechCrunch.

As of now Facebook is gradually rolling out support for Live Photos, so while some users will be able to post and view Live Photos, others will have to wait until the beginning of 2016, reports MacRumors.

TechCrunch further goes to say uploading a Live Photo will be done the same way as a regular picture, but there will be an option to choose whether the pic is a Live Photo or regular photo. Users will be able to tell if a picture is a Live Photo or not by a set of concentric circles on the bottom right of the pic.

"Uploading a Live Photo is pretty similar to uploading your standard still — in fact, it’s identical, save for one extra step. While uploading a photo from your camera roll that happens to be Live Photo-enabled, a “LIVE” box appears in the bottom right; tap that, and it’ll upload as a Live Photo. Don’t tap it, and only the still goes up."

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are the only iOS devices capable of taking Live Photos, however all devices running iOS 9 will be able to view them in the Facebook app.
