Just read all about the technology behind Google's release of Motion Stills for Live Photos (iOS 6s) HERE and of course I had to tweet about it ...
and try it out for myself.
The verdict? I love it! ＼(＾▽＾)／
What flabbergasts me is that if you save the photo as a movie, it includes the audio. How did they do that? #GoogleLove
