The Always on Display has been a longstanding feature of Samsung phones. It’s a great feature to have, especially with the Super AMOLED displays. You always have the clock and notifications just a glance away. Samsung has slowly added more features to the Always on Display over the years. The latest addition to the AOD for the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 allows you to put a little motion on the display.
Previously, it was possible to add photos to the Always on Display. This was an easy way to personalize your phone even when it’s idle. Now, you can take it a step further by adding animated GIFs. The feature was added in version 188.8.131.52 of Always on Display. All you have to do is download a GIF and you can add it to the AOD from the Gallery app.
