APNGs do not work on galaxy watch 4


I was inspired by the way you can interact with the apple watch pride digital watch face, and seeing as there are no such watch faces for the galaxy watch 4 (or wear os in general), so I decided to make a similar but simpler watch face.
I got an image for the idle part of it, I tried gifs but those aren’t supported, so I used an APNG (animated PNG) instead. It all worked out and the testing option in-app showed it worked. I connected my watch 4, installed the watch face using the run on device feature. It was all fun and games until I pressed the watch face to try out the interactible part of it, it only showed the first frame of the animation.

(here are some videos as an example)

  1. on PC

  2. IRL


Unfortunately, WFS does not officially support the APNG format.
How about using Multimedia component along with animated content formats supported by WFS?

thanks for telling me, but as i am using a PNG as the idle watch face, it would not work to switch to a gif or video (please keep in mind i am a new user to WFS)
