Adjust Comment Print

While the process of creating your own doesn't take long at all, if you are in a hurry it might be easier just to go with an animated image from Gboard's GIFs vault.

Through the feature, Gboard lets you record whacky selfie or group shots using your phone's camera.

Once you have clicked that button, the Gboard opens up into a GIF section, where you'll see the option to make your own GIF under 'My GIFs'. You can choose the send the GIF in which ever messaging app you were in, or, you could tap the download button to save without sharing. Your creation will be kept in the My GIFS tab for future use. All you need to do is open the Google Play Store, tap on the hamburger menu icon, click on my apps & games, and look for Gboard under Updates pending. Having said that, while Google has brought this feature to Gboard for Android only now, it has been available for iOS users for a couple of months now. Adding this feature to chats will only intensify the populairty of GIFs and Google would want the stable version users to experience it as well.

Yu said ADB can also "deepen regional cooperation and promote the building of a community of shared future for mankind". Nakao said the two institutions were different in many ways, which meant they could collaborate more effectively.


That said, this GIF creation tool isn't available for everyone right now, and has reportedly popped up only on Pixel devices. This time as well the all-new Beta version 7.2 of Gboard is rolling out to the devices and it comes with a number of new features that were missing.

Apart from that, the update includes new stickers, such as an Allo - like gallery, as well as blob emoji.
