The Samsung Gallery App has started auto-playing motion photos while browsing through photos. It is quite irritating and makes it impossible to quickly switch between photos to compare. I understand these things happen and that's why I wanted to make sure I reported it properly. It is very frustrating, if it was intended as a feature, all it needs is a setting to switch on and off. 🙂
Note: This seems unlikely to be linked but it is very coincidental... the Google photos app started doing the same thing first, a month or so ago. Hasn't been fixed yet. (that problem doesn't happen on my oneplus, even with the same Google Photos app version, only on my galaxy). Could be related?
Nothing! I did get a reply from the developers which was surprising, they were very polite but as it turns out, it's supposed to be a feature 🤦. It was implemented purposefully. All we need is an off setting.
