Before adding a GIF to the screen at rest of the device, it is convenient to comment that this addition could adversely affect the battery life of the device , since the animated image will consume a greater consumption of resources than if we only use the clock, calendar or the rest of the information that appears by default in the Always On mode.

Even so, Samsung has decided that the chosen GIF, it will only be played every time the screen turns off and the mode AOD , so the consumption of resources should not be excessive. On the other hand, a double click on the image , this will play again. Without further ado, these are the steps to add animated images to the always on screen of the Galaxy S8 or Note8:

  • Access the system settings. In the section of Security and screen lock , enters the category of ‘Always On Display’ to select the option to display Clock or Home button, or both.
  • Now, go back to the Security section and lock screen, to access the menu of Clock and Widgets . In the watch style, select the one that shows a clock, with a space in white and the symbol ‘+’ in the middle.
  • Once you have selected this style, you can upload a GIF from the phone gallery , or select one of the ones offered by default.
  • With the GIF already selected, click on ‘Accept’ in the upper right , and try turning off the screen. This should be activated again, now with the Always On mode including the GIF you have selected
