Samsung has been rolling out the latest release of One UI, model 2.5, over the previous few months. The replace makes gesture navigation compatible with third-party launchers. It additionally provides support for motion photos with sound in them, however now it seems like there’s an issue for customers who retailer their photographs in Google Pictures: stay photographs uploaded to the service present up as nonetheless photographs with the video and audio stripped out.

Oddly sufficient, Google Pictures did appear to assist Samsung’s up to date movement photograph capabilities when we tested it last month on a Galaxy S20 Extremely operating One UI 2.5. At the moment, movement photographs had been being accurately backed up with video and audio — though they took a very long time to course of on the backend. Now that is now not the case, and movement photographs uploaded to Google Pictures are leaving out each video and audio.

It may very well be {that a} current Google Pictures replace launched a bug that has effects on movement photograph uploads. Samsung’s movement photographs have been round for some time, however Google Pictures didn’t start supporting them until last year, so it is not like that is on the highest of Google’s precedence listing. Google Pictures is without doubt one of the best (and most cost-effective) methods to ensure your photographs are safely backed up within the cloud, however the service is not image excellent. Random videos from other users acquired blended into archive exports earlier this 12 months, and there was that bizarre bug that gave iOS users unlimited uncompressed photo storage when importing in HEIC format.

Hopefully, this newest bug is only a bump within the highway that may be mounted shortly, as a result of movement photographs with sound actually assist make recollections come alive.
