Facebook’s new photo sharing app, Facebook Moments, will now automatically turn your photos into music videos. The new update was launched by the social media app just recently but Moments is there since mid-June.
The auto syncing on Facebook may not be that inspiring but the new update will surely be. The new update, though a minor one, may inspire a lot of people to experiment. The app will convert photos into videos when the user uploads six or more photos in an album. This would be easy to share with friends, too.
The updated feature does not only allow the user to convert photos into videos; it also allows them to customize the videos by just tapping on them. There are dozens of background music available for further customization.
There is more to the video conversion of Facebook Moments. The user can choose to tag friends with whom they have already shared the video. This new addition on Facebook Moments will make Facebook compete with Flipagram which creates animation for Google Photos automatically.
Lately, Facebook is concentrating all its effort on video and video sharing. With over 4 billion views a day, video sharing is a booming sector for social media and Facebook is keen on getting benefits from it.
With the conversion of photos into videos through Facebook Moments, Facebook will inch forward in this regard. This is the latest addition from Facebook’s Creative Labs Initiative. The same initiative was responsible for Facebook Groups, Slingshot, Facebook Paper, Rooms, Mentions and many more.
Though all of the initiatives were not as successful as Facebook would have wanted them to be, Facebook Moments video conversion has the required potential.
