Moments, Facebook‘s photo sharing app has announced the launch of a cool new video feature just over two months since the app itself was launched. The new feature takes your images and automagically turns them into a musical montage video that you can then share with your Facebook friends!
Not much unlike Google Photos’ “Assistant”, Moments uses groups of six or more images, puts them together and makes something beautiful. A story… with music. The app is already synced with , Facebook, so if you’re mainly using the platform for your photos this is a great advantage because you don’t need to do much else to share with your friends on, Facebook – most of which are already your real friends. It also recognises your friends in your photos and suggests tags.
The app is really simple to use. Allow access to your images on your device, and Moments takes care of identifying your friends (from your friends list of course) and suggesting tags for the images. Then, all you do is choose a group of photos, who you’d like to share them with, and the app goes to work, setting the photos in a kind of video collage with some nice background music. There are even 10 different musical themes to choose from if you decide to change it.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
You can then change the images that you used, or different background music. You can then tag friends whom you’re sharing with. You can’t edit photos from within the app, or add any filters. It’s not hard to imagine that these will be features which will appear in the near future. Also, be advised that Moments is a Facebook-centric little app and therefore you will not be able to share your “moments” on any other media – Twitter for example is of course off the grid.
The new version of the app gives you a few more little upgrades, nothing that interesting really – Creating “Moments” on your own for example. Also the app is available in many more languages – 34 to be exact. Check it out now, for iOS or Android.
