Google Slides is a versatile platform that allows you to make your presentations more engaging and lively. An excellent way to do this is by adding live photos to your slides. Today, we’re going to walk you through the process of how to add live photos to Google Slides.
What is a Live Photo?
A Live Photo is a feature available on iOS devices that lets you capture a moment in motion. When you take a Live Photo, your device records what happens 1.5 seconds before and after you take the picture. This feature allows you to create a short video clip, making your photos more dynamic and engaging.
