First, let us take a look at what exactly is this Live Message thingy we are dealing with here. When you are sending a text, you can tap on the heart icon on the Keyboard and you will be shown a canvas where you can draw with various different pen effects and emoji.
The interesting thing is, this can be shared/sent via any platform that supports animated GIF files of up to 15 seconds! This feature was initially available for the Note 8 as it depends on the Pen that comes with Galaxy Note 8. But now, Galaxy Note 8 Live Message has been ported to work on the Galaxy S8 as well.
