In OS X 10.11.4 we will finally be able to view Live Photos through the Messages app

Since the iPhone 6s was released, I have had a lot of fun with the Live Photos. At least for those who have small children, this feature is very cool and I can't get enough of taking pictures of my daughter with it activated.

There is, however, a big problem in all of this: when sharing with friends / family, on the smartphone until everything goes well since it is enough to have an iPhone running iOS 9 to be able to see the movements of the photo. But if you're on a Mac, it gets pretty complicated.

It doesn't matter where you get the Live Photo: Mail, Messages, AirDrop in no way will you be able to visualize the movements or hear their sound. There is only one option: import everything directly from your iPhone to Photos and open the Live Photo inside the app.

In OS X 10.11.4, however, that changes. At least in the first beta version released by Apple, users will finally be able to view Live Photos through the Messaging application. Unfortunately, however, when saving / dragging the photo to a folder or to the table (Desktop), it becomes a regular JPG. The only option to save the Live Photo in its original form by importing everything directly into Photos.

As always, everything is identified by a cone / label in the upper / lower left corner, as we can see in the images above.

It is still a positive thing, but I hope that Apple does the full service and leaves Live Photos in fact compatible with the entire system (Mail, Preview, Finder, etc.).
