Always On Display for Galaxy S8, Note 8 Updated to Support GIFs

Always On Display for Galaxy S8, Note 8 Updated to Support GIFs”

Thankfully, Samsung is rectifying this by rolling out GIF support for the Always-On Display for Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note 8 users.

If you don't yet have GIF support on your Galaxy phone, make sure you're updated to Always On Display version 3.2.26.4.

With this, users can select from a number of fancy preloaded GIF animations to play on their Always On Display, but it appears you should also be able to use whatever GIF you want that's loaded onto your device. From there, find the flawless GIF, then apply it. The GIF also won't automatically loop; it just plays once when you turn the display off.

To get the Always On Display update, open the Galaxy Apps store on your phone, tap the three-dot button on the top right, select My Apps, then select Update. Once you've updated, you will need to select the particular clock style that shows images on the display.

Samsung's Always-On Display tech is pretty neat.

It's possible to reanimate the GIFs by double-tapping on the screens according to posters on the Samsung subreddit (via Android Police) who first spotted the feature. You'll then have to return to the Lock screen and security and tap Clock and FaceWidgets option.
