How To Capture Moving Photos On Android in 2023

Modern Android smartphones can capture moving pictures. More importantly, moving or 3D pictures are now considered essential, and most new smartphones have this feature on their stock camera application.

Moving photos are just a picture with 3D effects. The new camera mode takes pictures from different angles to provide a 3D feel; as you move your phone, your picture moves. It’s a unique feature; everyone should know how to use the new camera mode.

However, if you have an old Android phone, the Live Photo or 3D picture feature will likely be missing. Therefore, if you are using an older Android, you must use third-party apps to capture moving photos on Android.
