Facebook’s Slideshow Feature for iOS is a New Way to Share Your Photos and Videos
Facebook has been pushing its users to share more videos, so much so that it will now create them for you.
A new features coming to its iOS app this week, called Slideshow, takes your photos and videos and turns them into a short clip that you can customize with different themes and music. The company will generate this short clip for you automatically so long as you’ve taken five or more photos or videos in the last 24 hours.
Slideshow was first introduced in the company’s standalone photos app called Moments. The feature builds on Facebook’s “Year in Review” feature to create short films that you can share, with the hopes that you’ll then share those videos and keep the creation cycle going.
By taking the Slideshow feature from Moments and placing it into the main Facebook app, the company is taking another step towards making its social network a video-first destination.
