FaceTime photos

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

There were al­ready var­i­ous ways to save snip­pets of FaceTime con­ver­sa­tions on your Mac, but now there’s an of­fi­cial method pro­vided by Ap­ple. As you’re chat­ting with some­one, you can click a but­ton to cap­ture a special mo­ment and save it as a Live Photo, which in­cludes a short amount of video from be­fore and af­ter the still im­age. It’ll be added to your li­brary in the Photos app. The other per­son is im­me­di­ately no­ti­fied that a photo was taken, so it’s all above board.

If you’re not keen on peo­ple be­ing able to take such photos, you can dis­able this ca­pa­bil­ity for your FaceTime con­ver­sa­tions. You can find out more about this and how to pro­tect your pri­vacy in the “Live Photos in FaceTime” tu­to­rial later in this is­sue.
