Tumblr is a bit more animated now thanks to Live Photo sharing from the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The GIF-dominated social network's app on iOS bumped to version 5.0 and with that milestone brings support for the more prominent features on Cupertino's latest handsets. In addition to easy sharing for your animated selfies, Tumblr's making use of 3D Touch to view them. If you have a 6s or 6s Plus, 9to5Mac notes that when you're scrolling through the dashboard and see the Live Photo icon over an image, simply deep-press on your device and it'll play the motion and audio captured with the photo.

On a different upgrade cycle? Just long-press on your older Cupertino hardware for the same result. The 3D Touch support doesn't stop there, though. Performing a deep-press on the icon from your home screen results in a quick search function. What's more, the platform's instant messaging tools are available to everyone now too.

Tumblr hasn't pulled an Instagram yet and hacked together 3D Touch-like support for Android, but it has added instant messaging and send-a-post for Google fans. Sound good? If the App Store or Google Play haven't already updated the apps for you, hit the source links to start sharing that stack of messages and animated photos with the rest of the world.
